rooster sidewall sensing for laboratory cabinets
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

The air velocity measured through a side-wall sensor is a function of the cabinet’s negative pressure, which is created by the airflow exhaust system. The negative pressure changes when a sash is opened, or the overhead exhaust system adjusts its speed, and this will manifest itself as a pressure change, which is measured by the […]

sidewall air velocity sensing for critical containment

Performance & Reliability with Sidewall Air Velocity Sensing Lab managers often choose to use sidewall sensors to maintain the face velocity of fume hoods and biosafety cabinets, instead of duct-mounted probe-style sensors, in applications where the exhaust flow is dirty or extremely hot. The long term exposure of probe-style sensors to depositing particulates or corrosive chemicals may compromise […]
