How do I choose the right fume hood blower?

The type of blower is directly related to the intended use of the fume hood. If the fume hood is used for venting non-toxic materials, an epoxy coated steel blower may be the best option. If the fume hood’s primary use is mixing acids, an acid-resistant blower made of PVC, polypropylene or fiberglass reinforced plastic may be the best option.
