8 inch ECO Funnels
Protect yourself and your lab with Safety ECO Funnel®, the patented fume eating safety funnel with lid for laboratory waste disposal. The lid closes and latches easily to prevent fumes from escaping your waste container. Safety ECO Funnels help you comply with EPA and OSHA regulations on maintaining compliant waste containers in the lab.
Why Use ECO Funnel®?
Solve the "Open Waste Container" Problem with ECO Funnel®
Although it is common practice for chemists and lab workers to leave open funnels on waste containers, it is out of compliance with EPA, OSHA, and certain local Fire Code regulations and may result in fines of $5,000 or more. This applies even when the waste container is under a fume hood.
ECO Funnel® is designed to address these concerns and help laboratories stay compliant with local health and safety codes. Fire Marshall Steve Carroll of San Diego, California said about ECO Funnel®.
"ECO Funnel is an ideal containment system that eliminates the danger of ignited vapors and spills from open chemical waste containers."
ECO Funnel® is the ultimate lab safety product for collection of hazardous liquid waste. Its unique, patented design performs two functions, acting as both a sealed waste container and a solvent funnel.
Purpose, Design & Benefits
The Safety ECO Funnel® provides important benefits:
Solves the "open waste container" problem
An open waste container sitting under a fume hood allows chemicals to evaporate at a rate of 30-60 mL per day and does not comply with OSHA and EPA standards. ECO Funnel® screws securely onto a variety of bottles. Its latching lid prevents toxic emissions and promotes a healthier laboratory environment.
Prevents 99.9% of emissions of volatile waste solvents, acids, and bases in the laboratory
The gasket within the latching lid prevents nearly all chemical emissions when the funnel is not in use.
Maintains a low average daily operating cost - ECO Funnel® is a cost-effective solution to waste management problems in laboratories, hospitals, and other facilities regularly working with hazardous chemical waste. Many ECO Funnels are used for several years. Your own usage may vary depending on usage.
Meets safety regulations
Unique, patented design includes a latching lid and gasket that meets most local, state and federal safety regulations and requirements (See "Safety Regulations")
May be used again and again
ECO Funnel® resists nearly all corrosive chemicals and can be used safely for several years.
Is considered a state of the art product
Environmental health and safety officers and industry professionals consider ECO Funnel® as a highly effective tool for chemical waste management.
Is widely used across diverse industry fields
Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Academic and Government laboratories all use ECO Funnel® as part of their safety protocol.
Extends the life of your ductless fume hoods
Typically a ductless fume hood has no ventilation to the outside and extra fumes unnecessarily overwhelm its charcoal filters.
Strong enough to resist damage
Our ECO Funnel® survived a University lab explosion completely intact and was documented in the photo to the right by a lab worker. Though the lab was mostly destroyed, the waste container remained closed, containing the volatile solvents inside and preventing a possible fire. ECO Funnel® is a powerful tool for maintaining safety in the workplace.
The ECO Funnel® is the ultimate lab safety product for collection of hazardous liquid waste. Its unique, patented design performs two functions, acting as both a sealed waste container and a solvent funnel. The 8" ECO Funnel® is made of HDPE and has a 2000 mL fluid capacity. This solvent funnel with lid features an easy use lid, gasket, and positive latch to close lid and maintain an air-tight seal. A filter is also built into the interior to reduce the loss of stir sticks or other particles in the waste liquid. An 11" stem also reduces chemical evaporation of hazardous solvents in the lab.
- 8" wide funnel with lid, gasket and screw cap fits Nalgene containers with same neck size
- 11" stem also reduces chemical evaporation of hazardous solvents in the lab
- Funnel top without the stem measures 9"W x 11"L.
- large particle filter catches stir bar and large debris
- Constructed of chemically resistant HDPE
- 8" ECO Funnel can be fitted with up to 8 HPLC waste lines
