Exhaust systems often account for more than 20% of a laboratory facility’s HVAC energy costs. Meanwhile, high exhaust stack velocities are typically maintained in excess of what is necessary for all but the most extreme conditions, despite the fact that the air being exhausted is usually “clean” for a majority of the time. This results in wasted energy, but is also an opportunity for additional energy savings in critical spaces…
