5 ways to reduce energy usage and cut costs in the lab

Laboratories are notoriously energy intensive, requiring high amounts of ventilation to operate safely. Fortunately, much can be done to reduce energy consumption from adopting energy efficient behaviours through to upgrading your fume cupboards’ air control system. There are many good reasons to reduce energy usage in your laboratory; you’ll make significant savings on energy bills, […]

6 reasons to switch to variable air volume (VAV) fume cupboard control.

Fume cupboards play a pivotal role in the laboratory, protecting users from harmful substances.
