Turn your lab green with the AFA4000
Earlier this month the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a special report on the impact of global warming above 1.5C and warned that the 3C we are currently heading for could be both devastating and irreversible.
Laboratories are highly energy-intensive spaces, using more per square foot than most hospitals or commercial buildings and 5-10 times more than typical academic areas.¹
About the AFA4000
As the need for decisive action on climate change gathers pace, the AFA4000 airflow control and monitoring system has been designed to reduce energy usage while ensuring the safety of users working with industrial and educational fume hoods and biological safety cabinets.
Recognised by the Carbon Trust, the AFA4000 airflow control and monitoring system offers a range of benefits including:
reduced carbon emissions
improved energy efficiency
reduced energy costs – up to 85%
The pioneering AFA4000 has a full color interface that’s been optimized for ease of user experience. Easy to navigate, it features a simple two-step calibration process which, once complete, won’t need to be done again.
The AFA4000 incorporates full alarm diagnostics and test functionality as well as a 60 minute timeline of environmental conditions, providing professional lab managers with complete peace of mind.
Full color 3.5” LCD display for continuous velocity reading in m/sec or fpm
3 programmable push buttons
Bespoke software options for customer-specific requirements
BACnet and Modbus on board
Visual and audible alarms
3 digital inputs and 3 digital outputs
Emergency night setback push button
Auto Sash integration
The AFA4000 airflow monitor and controller is also available with optional integrated Auto Sash functionality that automates the opening and closing of the fume cupboard sash when it’s unattended, providing an increased level of safety and further reducing energy costs. It also responds to safety critical inputs from external sources like a fire alarm or ventilation system failure.
Sustainable Lab Design
Sustainability requires a long-term view and it has the greatest impact when it’s built in to the fabric of the laboratory building. Our specialist knowledge means we are often called in as professional consultants to building contractors and engineers, helping them ensure their new build and refurbishment projects are designed with sustainability firmly in mind.
