New controls reduce the lab air change rate when the space is not occupied...comments share
We installed new digital space controls and upgraded the hood monitors and control sequence for each lab space.
The new system allows tempera-ture and airflow setback which minimizes utility usage
This was a very challenging project to complete in a fully operational lab building, but we did the work as a team very effectively. This laboratory now has up to date controls, increased safety, and significantly less energy use. The nearly 30 year old systems are now ready for the decades ahead.
