The integrated Variable Air Volume system is designed to provide variable airflow volume control and to ensure a safe face velocity for the operator. Properly used VAV systems provide a clear energy conservation advantage over CAV systems which consume a large volume of energy when the fume hoods are not in use. Switching to VAV can decrease exhaust volumes by up to 85%, reducing energy costs and carbon emissions. The system measures face velocity, sash position and automatically reduces the exhaust volume as the sash is lowered, thereby saving significant energy and costs. This system is designed to be factory mounted on any Mott fume hood and supplied with the following features:
Enhances Safety – The combined VAV controller, air flow monitor and alarm protects laboratory personnel from potentially hazardous fumes and substances. Additionally, it adjusts to changing conditions in the lab environment, such as personnel in front of the hood.
Energy Saving – When the fume hood is not in use and the sash is closed, the VAV airflow controller reduces the volume of air exhausted, thus reducing energy usage by up to 85%, significantly reducing costs.
Flexible – Since the controller and damper are attached to the fume hood itself, it allows for mobile and stationary installation without requiring VAV dampers or system to be installed in the building. Only a simple source of exhaust is required, making your labs easily reconfigurable.
Reliable – The sensor will provide stable readings over many years of operation without recalibration, ensuring reliability and safety.
