Factors Affecting the Performance of Airflow Measurement Devices in Critical Applications
Explains the differences between measuring and metering airflow in critical applications. Also provides information on the factors that should be considered when selecting ventilation controls for laboratories, such as speed of response, accuracy, stability, maintenance, installation issues, and balancing.

What is the true cost of static pressure?
Compares the static pressure requirements of terminal boxes with venturi valves. Also stresses that while terminal boxes can maintain lower static pressure on paper, the cost savings from lower static pressure is minimal and far outweighed by the energy savings from the superior turndown of the Phoenix Controls venturi valve.

HVAC Considerations for Gaseous Decontamination of Laboratory Spaces using Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor (HPV)
Examines the use of hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) as a biodecontamination agent and the effects of ventilation system design on its efficacy as a decontaminant.

Cage Rack Ventilation Options for Laboratory Animal Facilities
Describes methods for ventilating cage racks in animal labs. It details four different airflow control approaches for this type of application, from the simplest to the most complex and lists the advantages and disadvantages of each. Mechanical system designers and facility managers for laboratory animal facilities should find this document useful in making comparisons and weighing options.
