Analyzing Environmental Quality Controls to Enhance Asepsis and Prevent Disease Transmission in the Intensive Care Unit
Discusses that in today’s healthcare setting, there is an increasing drive to improve patient safety and clinical outcomes while simultaneously reducing the carbon footprint of the care facility, minimizing waste and preserving financial interest. This study demonstrates that a properly designed and engineered procedure ready ICU room reduces the necessity to move critically ill patients to operating rooms by changing the room’s environment to mimic the protective environment of a procedure room quickly and effectively.

Want Real HVAC Cost Savings? Reducing CFM while maintaining flow accuracy nets greater savings than reducing duct pressure
Explains that while other airflow control manufacturers that utilize flow measurement are selling a lower pressure drop, Phoenix Controls is doing more to save energy and curb the consumption of outside air than any other product on the market. “Owners that know” buy Phoenix Controls for two reasons: repeatable control year after year (no maintenance and stable control), energy efficiency (high turndown), and systems that do not drift. Phoenix Controls systems do not drift because there are no invasive flow elements.​

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.
