Air Flow Control for Laboratories

Sustainable Airflow Control Design for Academic, Private Sector and Government Laboratories

Academic, private sector and government laboratories are uniquely different but in many ways they are similar. These types of facilities are at the forefront of new ideas for sustainable design and use. Owners and designers look to innovative technologies to meet their future objectives.

Accutrol meets the demands of these scientific facilities to ensure the safest and most energy efficient airflow control in the market today. Accutrol's low pressure drop AccuValve airflow control valves provide precise airflow measurement and fast acting control to maintain critical room airflow balance. The Accutrol AVC Fume Hood Control System provides the owner with fast acting, independent safe and energy efficient control of the fume hood exhaust. The technology of the intuitive graphical interface demystifies fume hood set‐up by making it the simplest to use in the industry, giving owners complete confidence and independence. In addition, all AccuValve airflow control valves are designed to give the owner the capability for "ready" demand based static pressure reset control without the need for additional hardware.
