For Safety in Farm Production
Designed for Safety and Efficiency
PodTronix Fume Hoods, designed specifically for farm production, are compact and efficient units, engineered to safely remove any chemical or hazardous fumes from designated work zones and other critical areas. These units are designed to draw minimal intake air from the ambient work environment, and provide an adjustable ‘low flow’ constant air motion to keep hazardous chemical fumes from accumulating and creating a threat to your workers or facility. Our Fume Hoods are manufactured in the U.S., and are made with 18 gauge steel, using rugged ‘nut & bolt’ assembly, and built to meet or exceed industrial standards (compliant to NFPA 33 safety requirements and UL 1389 Compliant for US and Canada).
The Mini Model
PodTronix BenchTop Fume Hoods are built to provide maximum performance while taking up minimum space. From our smallest Fume Hood (the FH-30) to our largest (FH-144), there is a ‘BenchTop’ model available for your application. The BT Hoods come with a stand and
with or without caster wheels, 2 of which are lockable.
The High Coverage Model
PodTronix Floor Model Fume Hoods give you broad floor to ceiling coverage with the raw power to keep the clean air flowing with ease. Simple to move around and equipped with a floor skirt to seal the unit to the floor, this model is perfect for those in larger spaces and in need of fuller coverage.

How do I get rid of farm fumes when growing and extracting?
It’s possible that your base botanical crop produces an aroma when flowering, and can become even more pungent during the extraction process, which is why having a plan for removing farm fumes is an integral part of setting up your botanical/extraction operation. It can be hard to figure out the best way to contain this scent within your facility and eliminate it. However, any expert will tell you that fume hoods are the way to go if you want to solve your farm fume problems once and for all.
What are fume hoods?
Fume hoods are portable structures that can be used to remove fumes from flowering farm or farm extraction areas. These hoods are generally large enough to admit processing tables, and they have hoods on their ceilings that house high-RPM fans. Some fume hoods are on wheels, and these types of hoods are usually large enough to admit a standing person and a processing table. Other types of fume hoods are designed to be placed on top of tables, and these hoods can be placed on wheeled carts to make it easier to move from place to place.
How do fume hoods work?
Fume hoods have fans that remove air from the area directly below the hood. These hoods are designed to remove air from a certain area, but by providing negative air pressure, they also help keep your entire facility properly ventilated. The air from the top of a fume hood can be processed in two different ways. If you want, you can connect a fume hood directly to your HVAC system to pump farm production or extraction fumes out of your building. If you take this approach, it’s recommended that you install carbon filters on the ducts leading out of your building to the outside world. Alternatively, you can connect your fume hood to a recirculating filtration system. These filtration systems contain their own filters, and they do not connect directly to your HVAC system.
Why are fume hoods important?
Most farm producers use fume hoods to remove the chemical gases that are produced during the farm production process. Most farm extraction processes have gaseous chemical byproducts that could be harmful to your health. Fume hoods remove these toxic chemicals from workspaces, which protects your employees from potentially fatal gas exposure. This equipment is absolutely necessary anywhere that farm extraction takes place.
How do you install fume hoods?
In general, it’s easy to set up one or more fume hoods in your farm production facility. Since many of these hoods are equipped with wheels, you can move them from place to place as needed. However, if you connect a fume hood to your HVAC system, it will be necessary to keep your hood in one permanent location.
