An essential addition is our Ecosash®, a technology designed to improve safety and optimise energy use. This feature offers automatic sash lowering and minimal loss of conditioned air from the laboratory.

Why choose a variable air volume (VAV) system?

  • The cost of air conditioning or heating a laboratory increases as air is exhausted from the room through the fume cupboards.
  • A fixed volume fume cupboard exhausts the same total amount of air whether the sash is up or down because the fan speed is constant.
  • The lower the sash height, the less air needs to be exhausted through the fume cupboard to properly evacuate fumes and conform to safety standards.
  • So, if fan speed could be made variable – automatically reduced for lower sash heights:
    • Less air would be needlessly exhausted, and
    • The cost of replacing conditioned air would be reduced, and
    • The fan and wind noise at the fume cupboard would be reduced.
