On-Site Commissioning Testing: The performance of fume cupboards in the work place may deviate from the established performance during type tests, Invent UK offers a variety of on-site tests in accordance with various standards, including sound pressure, velocity, containment - tailored to suit specific client requirements. These tests evaluate the fume cupboard performance in its installed environment and contribute to identifying site-specific factors that may be detrimental to fume cupboard performance.
