Seminar series covering aspects of compliance for manifolded laboratory exhaust systems, from hood to roof.
Hosted by three companies who specialise in this field – Dynaflow, Phoenix Controls and Airepure Australia, this collaborative seminar was held in three cities in late October 2015 – Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
The attendees appreciated the factual information and the user perspectives presented by our speakers.
Guest speaker Geoff Deeble gave his candid user perspective of the extensive manifolded fume exhaust setup within the Research School of Chemistry Laboratories at ANU (Australian National University).
Roy Rossario from Dynaflow gave perspectives on AS (Australian Standard) compliant fume hoods, illustrating the importance of high quality fume containment.
John Penny from Phoenix Controls related the right ways to control air flow from hoods and into laboratories with Phoenix VAV units.
Allan Heckenberg from Airepure Australia gave perspectives on the 2243.8 standard revision and the use of Strobic Air Tri Stack exhaust systems to complete a successful manifolded systems.
Summary videos of the presentations and presentation notes will be available shortly. Register your details to receive a download link.
