Fume Hoods - Variable Air Volume
Variable Air Volume (VAV) Fume Hoods
Lab Exhaust Systems Built for Increased Efficiency
Since the sash can be partially closed to reduce airflow, VAV fume hoods are more energy-efficient than many other hood types. Metrolabs Laboratory Furniture installs VAV hoods for labs across the world. Labs with VAV hoods require less energy to operate. Investing in variable air volume (VAV) fume hoods provides long-term savings.
VAV Fume Hood Installation & Certification for New and Remodeled Laboratories
When it comes to laboratory design, there's nothing Metrolabs can't do. We handle everything from furniture installation to lab certifications. We’ll test and certify your VAV fume hood after installation.
The Difference between VAV and CAV Fume Hoods
Lab exhaust systems like the variable air volume (VAV) and constant air volume (CAV) fume hood keep odors, smoke, and other emissions at bay while protecting users from the dangerous chemicals in the air. However, CAV systems need more energy to provide constant air velocity. In contrast, VAV systems can be adjusted to reduce air intake. VAV fume hoods generally offer high performance with lower energy usage.
