Considerations When Planning an HVAC system:-
Lab Ventilation Control
Air is continuously being circulated from buildings to the outside. Air handling units are specified to suit laboratory functions and the room specification, they handle make up fresh air and recirculated air, maintaining the pressure and air condition to provide an acceptable indoor air quality.
Humidity Control In Laboratories
Humidity can often be a problem in laboratories. When specialist equipment is used, with tight tolerances the humidity level can have an effect on the outcome of experiments. For example humidity levels fluctuate hugely between morning and evening in addition to seasonal differences. Furthermore, controlling humidity, can also prolong the life of laboratory equipment, as this avoids undesirable fluctuations in humidity levels.
Installing a dehumidifier creates a constant environment throughout the year, so that lab procedures can be carried out accurately.
