Good, then you can tell us if that wording is still in the 2011 NFPA 45.
I have been trying for the last half hour to see my free read-only version and keep getting a pop up that tells me my security system is blocking this application. Well, dang, I don't have any such system on my computer and have never had this pop up before. I've call my guru for help, but I am eyeing that baseball bat standing in the corner behind the door.

Dan referenced NFPA 45 in his recent email.
I would like to mention that NFPA 45: Standard on Fire Protection for Laboratories Using Chemicals (current edition: 2011) is in
the process of revision. The next edition is scheduled for 2015.

Look at this NIH policy document on ductless hoods.. It is from 2005. That is where I got the NFPA reference for NFPA 45. It is section 6.4.1.
I was asked by my department to assist in deciding whether to purchase ductless fumehoods for our undergraduate chemistry labs. We are planning to use these for flammable solvents, and reactions involving HCl and NaOH. These hoods will be used by undergraduates
for research also. Any input on the safety issues involved with these equipments versus the regular hoods would be appreciated.
