Previous case study

PROJECT BRIEF

Our client was experiencing high energy demand driven by high volumes of treated fresh air to a large number of fume cupboards operating 24/7.

METHODOLOGY

We were tasked with targeting fume cupboard capture face velocity (CFV) reduction and introducing night setback in order to reduce energy demand without compromising on laboratory personnel safety.

SOLUTION

We carried out the following:

Produced a detailed smoke trial approach document for client approval

Proved the feasibility of reducing CFV by carrying out a smoke visualisation trial

Produced a bespoke smoke trial video matrix to simplify video analysis of trial

Recommended replacement of existing laboratory supply air diffusers

Demonstrated capability to safely reduce existing CFV’s to level agreed with EHS / users

Developed diversity and night setback strategy for client review

Complete risk assessments, change and regulatory documentation

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

The EECO2 team demonstrated a thorough understanding of laboratory air systems. The data obtained was instrumental in formulating our energy reduction strategy… also their flexibility (weekend working) was appreciated.
