Airflow Control for Laboratories

Safe, Energy Efficient Airflow Control Design for Healthcare Facilities

Healthcare facilities encompass small outpatient surgery centers to very large teaching and research hospitals. In any type of healthcare facility, care for the patient is the utmost priority. While maintaining the highest level of care possible, they are also dealing with the high cost of energy and maintenance. Sustainable design is key for owners and designers alike to meet the demands of these types of facilities.

Accutrol meets the demands of sustainable design spaces to ensure the safest and most energy efficient airflow control in the market today. Accutrol's low pressure drop AccuValve airflow control valves provide precise airflow measurement and control to maintain critical room airflow balance. In addition, all AccuValve airflow control valves are designed to give the owner the capability for "ready" demand based static pressure reset control without the need for additional hardware.
