Georgia Tech upgraded airflow safety and
energy efficiency in 98 research labs
ABM (and TEL) won the right to be the prime design-build contractor. TEL out-performed another vendor in a 3-lab competitive pilot project based on safety and savings criteria.
The TEL team trained ABM personnel to install, commission, and support advanced laboratory technology.
They also provided consulting and materials for the other 96 research laboratories.
I would like to pass along my sincere appreciation for a job well done. It has been a pleasure working with you. The task has been effortless thanks to your patience and devotion to this project. I look forward to working with you all in the future and you can be rest assured, you will come highly recommended for future projects.”
Robert Daw, Project Manager, ABM
Custom Settings Delivered
The ambitious Georgia Tech plan required re-coding core software parameters at the factory to deliver the most remote controllability available today.
TEL developed real-time Air Change per Hour (ACH) reporting on the AFA 5000 screen. This flexibility allowed Georgia Tech to precisely match system metrics with operational goals.

Auto sash controllers have advanced significantly in recent years but TEL still leads the field...
We have a video showing how the TEL Auto Sash Controller integrates with VAV systems for safe airflow and energy savings of up to 85%.
People working with industrial and educational fumehoods must be protected at all times. Auto sash controllers keep people safe.
