Case Study

Press Release

Success Brief

Kansas Bioscience Park

Aircuity’s Lab Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) application continually senses and analyzes laboratory environments and provides ventilation inputs to adjust the air changes per hour (ACH) based on the actual conditions of the lab.

White Paper

OptiNet Applications – Dynamic Variation of Lab Air Change Rates

An in depth look at a unique sensing technology that makes varying air change rates a solution that works.

OptiNet Applications – A Healthier, More Energy Efficient Approach to Demand Control Ventilation

Identifying the underlying issues around the concept of DCV is how Aircuity's technology came to life. A multi-parameter approach is the answer to providing a healthy indoor environment.

OptiNet Applications – A Review of the Unique Requirements for Facility Monitoring System

To successfully and cost effectively enable energy savings applications such as demand controlled ventilation and differential enthalpy economizer control, a multi-parameter, multiple location, facility monitoring system should be deployed and at least meet the requirements described within this white paper.

Labs 21 Technical Bulletin – Laboratory Centralized DCV System Increases Energy Efficiency in Pilot Study

A centralized demand-controlled ventilation (CDCV) is a technological approach that uses a centralized suite of pollutant sensors to provide DCV.

Energy Efficiency of a Large Animal Vivarium: A University of Houston Research Study

Researchers at the University of Houston analyzed the conditions in two non-human primate vivaria when ventilation was run at both constant volume and when using Aircuity's demand control ventilation (DCV) solution. During the 60 day period ventilation rates along with temperature, relative humidity, TVOCs, CO2 and particle levels were monitored.
