CASE STUDY – Hollister ULC – Laboratory Ventilation

Hollister Lab Ventilation

Fume hood status displays at Hollister

Project Details

Design, supply and installation of new fume hood ventilation system serving 3 fume hoods.

The 3 fume hoods are served by a single extract fan, using the Vita Lab system to automatically regulate the hood face velocity at 0.5m/s, regardless of sash position and number of hoods in operation.

Traditionally this would be accomplished using individual fans for each fume hood, necessitating multiple individual fans and on/off control accomplished by the user/operator.

The Client brief was to simplify installation, reduce the number of fans and roof openings and to automate operation. Hollister engaged Entropic to design, supply and install our Vita Lab system.

All works were undertaken within a very tight shutdown timeframe, with a short notice period also.

Installation, commissioning and successful handover was achieved within programme and to the satisfaction of the Customer.

“Hi guys,

Just a word of thanks for the recently completed Lab Development, I can walk away from this one saying that I am 100% happy with the solution offered & installed.

To get the perfect solution is never plain sailing but with considerable effort, attention to detail and fast turn a rounds, I can say this one worked out perfect in the end!

The simplicity of the system is what makes it so good… K.I.S.S.! and hopefully reliable for many years to come.”
