Precise Control of Air Movement in Safety & Life Critical Systems


Introduction

Precise air flow control systems are designed for use in spaces conducting life & safety-critical processes. They are used to control room pressurization for safety, as well as temperature and humidity for comfort.

Through the use of our Phoenix Controls products we can provide solutions to many different markets.


Health Care Facilities

There are many environmentally protected spaces in healthcare facilities that can benefit from the precision airflow control and monitoring offered by Phoenix.

  • Intensive care units (ICUs) and Cardiac care units (CCUs)

Proper room pressurization, either negative or positive depending on the application, is achieved by applying the Accel® II venturi valve in a CDC and ANSI recommended control approach. The valve is a fast responding, pressure-independent device with a proven history of reliable performance.


Laboratory Animal Facilities (Vivariums)

Phoenix Controls airflow controls systems have long been relied upon for fume hood containment and room pressurization in chemistry laboratories. The same precise control and repeatability also makes the system ideal for animal facilities.

The primary objective of ventilation systems in animal facilities is to provide a stable environment for the animals while producing a safe and comfortable environment for all occupants. While this goal seems straightforward, it is widely recognized that HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) systems in animal facilities are chronically problematic. Phoenix Controls systems differentiate themselves by using high performance, Accel® II venturi valves as opposed to the general variable volume devices routinely used in commercial office buildings.

An examination of key issues and the rationale for proper ventilation design may be found in our Vivarium Sourcebook.


Cleanroom Applications

Phoenix Controls airflow controls systems have long been relied upon for fume hood containment and room pressurization in chemistry laboratories. The same precise control and repeatability also makes the system ideal for cleanroom facilities.

Access Control - Building Control, BSD Solutions

The swipe of a card can also be used to trigger other events, such as enabling a mechanical door opener, alerting nearby CCTV cameras to focus on the area, or simply just turn on the lights. Alarms could be configured to handle a whole realm of situations, such as invalid access attempts, or the use of a stolen card. By issuing all employees and visitors with an access card you gain total control over their movement throughout your facility.

Building Control Systems | BSD Solutions

These intricate building information systems often utilize different industry standard protocols, such as BACnet, LON, ModBUS and N2, as well as surviving legacy systems. Automated control sytems, whether they manage access, air flow, energy, HVAC or lighting in a building, are becoming more popular, they are also more complex.
