Ventilation demands, driven by fume hood exhaust flows and air change rates, means laboratories can use six times the energy of a similarly-sized office building. Operating one fume hood uses as much energy over the course of a year as three homes!

Top Choice—VAV Laboratory Room Control Strategies

Win with TSI VAV lab control strategiesWell-designed laboratory monitors and controls use Variable Air Volume (VAV) strategies. VAV reduces airflows and saves energy. By precisely monitoring HVAC systems, VAV helps to ensure safety in the laboratory. TSI VAV products directly and accurately measure these critical parameters:

TSI fume hood controls help maintain a constant face velocity. This provides superior containment. TSI laboratory controls limit airflow whenever possible to significantly reduce energy use. With TSI’s VAV strategy, customers can both protect laboratory staff and increase efficiency.

Real Measurement Matters in Lab Controls

TSI VAV laboratory monitors and controls maximize:

  • Safety
    Laboratories need to maintain the health and well-being of occupants. Potential hazards include chemicals, radioactive materials, and infectious biological agents. Laboratory staff may work with these materials daily in experiments, research or production. TSI fume hood controls and laboratory room controls help facilities optimize containment and ventilation. The products allow designers and owners to comply with regulations, guidelines and standards, including ANSI Z9.5 Laboratory Ventilation.
  • Comfort
    Maintaining comfortable temperatures and ventilation is critical to the well-being and productivity of laboratory staff. Successful research and experimentation also often depends on proper temperature and airflow in the laboratory. 
  • Energy Efficiency
    Saving energy requires reducing laboratory airflows to the minimum needed for fume hood containment and ventilation. TSI laboratory control systems use low-pressure drop dampers to further decrease energy use without harming safety.

Meeting Compliance and Regulation is Easy

TSI products help customers meet or comply with industry and regulatory requirements. Guidelines and standards relating to laboratory design and work practices include, but are not limited to:
