Schlenk lines are typically set up in a laboratory chemical hood to protect researchers from manipulation related physical and chemical hazards. When somebody is working or manipulating pyrophoric chemicals, Schlenk line must be present inside the chemical fume hood. For simple chemical manipulations, such as degassing, product drying and protein manipulations, a Schlenk line at lower bench (outside chemical hood) may serve the purpose.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Requirements for Schlenk lines
Trying to get information regarding safe practices and Schlenk line use.
At your institutions do you require all Schlenk lines to set up in hoods?
If not, when do you allow them outside of the hood
