Trox launches intelligent ventilation for laboratories

Published:  20 September, 2005

Laboratory
Trox now offers variable-air-volume systems for laboratories and the control of fume cupboards with its LabControl offering.

Trox has developed a variable-air-volume system (VAV) specifically designed for laboratories where the responsive control of air is critical. LabControl uses co-ordinated hardware and software to maximise safety, while being easy to use and generating savings in capital cost, installation time and costs and maintenance.

LabControl incorporates options for volume-flow air regulation of fume cupboards and the room extract and supply air to quickly compensate for continuous changes in lab conditions.

Protecting staff from hazardous substances is the prime purpose of ventilation and air-movement systems in laboratories. Where tailored systems are required to match specific design criteria, Trox can advise and supply the correct control components. The control system allows for the precise control of room extract and supply air to ensure the safe control and discharge of contaminated air. For instances where corrosive substances are used, Trox can provide a full range of components made from materials suitable for the application.

Where integrated variable fume cupboard control is required, the LabControl system controls extracted air, ensuring a constant and uniform face velocity at varying sash openings. LabControl for fume cupboard incorporates closed-loop control, ensuring the system remains responsive and reliable.

When LabControl systems for fume cupboards and rooms are used together, a cost-effective and fully integrated system can be achieved.

Using LON-compatible controllers enables each unit to be linked via common twisted-pair cable, simplifying installation. Functions can be monitored and changed from a central point, reducing on-site commissioning and ongoing maintenance costs. Easy-to-assemble components and factory-calibrated controls further reduce on-site time and set-up costs.
