Innovative & Sustainable Design
This project used a four pipe tempering system after the supply air valves to eliminate wasted energy typically associated with laboratory reheat only systems. The air handling system uses the chilled water from the heating plant to preheat the air in the heating season. This alleviates the plant cooling needs at cool temperatures, while addressing issues with the freezing up of the cooling towers. Occupancy sensors were used to provide dynamic resets to fume hood face velocities and general air change rates.
