Fume Cupboard Controllers
EcoAir® (VAV) fume cupboard controller
A fume cupboard with an EcoAir® III Controller is a variable air volume (VAV) system. The Controller monitors the sash position and continually adjusts the fan speed to maintain a constant face velocity as the sash height changes.2 The EcoAir® III Controller thereby saves energy and improves HVAC efficiency by exhausting less conditioned air from the laboratory
Besides automatically adjusting fan speed to sash height, EcoAir® III also responds to a drop in airflow by ramping up its fan speed. Typical sources of a transient drop in air supply are doors or windows being opened in the laboratory space, or multiple fume cupboards being turned on across the room. Note that the EcoAir® III Controller is designed to ensure safe laboratory conditions and is fully in compliance with AS/NZS 2243.8 (2014).
Constant Air Volume (CAV) fume cupboard controller
The Advanced Air® Fixed Volume (CAV) Controller provides State-of the-art fume cupboard management: A remarkable capability of the Advanced Air® Fixed Volume Controller is that it can manage as many as four separate fume cupboards if the four use a single exhaust manifold.
The Controller monitors air flow, temperature and electrical faults to provide a safe working environment for the user. The backlit LED control panel display is designed to be easy to use.
If you have any queries please contact Aircare to discuss your options.
Retrofitting Fume Cupboard Controllers
Both the CAV and VAV controllers represent the latest in modern laboratory equipment. If your laboratory fume cupboards are older, keep in mind that Aircare can retrofit new controllers and bring them up to code.
