Fume Hoods

Fume hoods for laboratory clean air

Variable Air Volume (VAV) Fume Hoods

Lab Exhaust Systems Built for Increased Efficiency

Custom VAV Fume HoodsSince the sash can be partially closed to reduce airflow, VAV fume hoods are more energy-efficient than many other hood types. PSA Laboratory Furniture installs and certifies 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.

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.
