Laboratory Ventilation Systems
Entropic provide exceptionally safe and efficient ventilation solutions for laboratory and pharmaceutical workspace environments.
Entropic provide an integrated system designed for pressurisation and indoor environment management of laboratories creating a safe and comfortable environment for scientific research. The laboratory solutions we provide ensure constant temperature, air quality and airflow velocity throughout the laboratory.
Our design team will provide the necessary combination of general laboratory ventilation and other local exhaust ventilation (LEV), to contain emissions within the laboratory according to their specific requirements. Our systems are co-designed and created with our client’s team and customized to match their requirements. We provide detailed design, delivery, installation and commissioning of all system components.
The Laboratory Ventilation Systems we provide include but are not limited to:

The system manages fume cupboard operations, ventilation and air conditioning of the laboratory space. The pressure conditions of the area are maintained by matching the supply airflow to fume cupboards, local exhausts, constant flow cupboards and general exhaust. The system manages indoor air temperature with fast action airflow control damper for temperature control and draught-free air diffusion to ensure comfort and success of laboratory activities.
- Fast action airflow damper for fume cupboards.
- Control panel with a touchscreen digital display.
- Fast action supply airflow damper.
- Fast-action airflow control damper for general exhaust of the laboratory.
- Room control panel with touchscreen digital display for temperature and airflow control.
- Constant airflow unit.
- Fast-action CAV control damper.
- Swirl or multi-nozzle diffuser or ceiling diffuser equipped with HEPA filter.
- Exhaust air grille or exhaust diffuser.

Why Chose an Entropic Laboratory Systems?
Safety comes first
The products we supply are in accordance with the EN 14175 standard. For laboratories with explosion risk, we have ATEX approved products. Fast action systems minimize the risk of personnel exposure in all circumstances.
Energy efficiency, as we do it
The solutions we provide control indoor climate conditions according to customer demand. Supply airflow follows the exhaust airflow to maintain desired pressure conditions while maintaining high energy efficiency.
We have a strong know-how in air diffusion. Our solutions include optimized air diffusion that ensures pleasant, silent and draught-free conditions for the users.
Reap the rewards
Due to the demand-based operation we provide, energy savings can be achieved. The results can be seen within 12 to 18 months. A study based on a constant airflow system, a 1,2m wide fume cupboard showed that at constant airflow the system had 50% higher energy use (EN 14175 ventilation conditions) when compared to the solution we provided.
Depending on the ventilation design the payback time can be shorter than 12 months.

Entropic Laboratory Systems
Entropic’s integrated system is designed for pressurization and indoor environment management of laboratories. The system is applicable to laboratories both in health care and industries as well as to pharmacies, isolation rooms, operating theatres and other clean rooms.
Laboratory ventilation settings are required to promote and maintain laboratory safety and protection of life and property. Through fume containment, cleanliness, pressure monitoring, filtration, air changes per hour, point of fume capture, temperature, and relative humidity requirements we guarantee to meet the ventilation system requirements for your laboratory type. We exceed the requirements for the protection of life and property through the prevention and containment of hazardous fumes and contaminants for worker safety.
Operation of the system
The system manages fume cupboard operation and ventilation and air conditioning of the laboratory space. The pressure conditions of the space are maintained by matching the supply airflow to fume cupboards, local exhausts, constant flow cupboards and general exhaust.
Thanks to the short response time, the pressure conditions are maintained precisely without delays. The system also manages the indoor air temperature and with fast action airflow control damper, including coils as an option for temperature control, and draught-free air diffusion to ensure comfort and success of the laboratory research activities.
The system is available with several preconfigured applications:
Supply airflow control tracks fume cupboard exhaust airflows. It is based on total room exhaust airflow rate which also takes into account the minimum ventilation rate requirements and the room air temperature management.
The system is easy to scale-up thanks to the user-friendly touch screen control panel.
ATEX applications (optional)
Entropic provides ATEX compliant system components for zones with explosion risks. The ATEX airflow controllers have a stainless steel structure for maximum chemical agent resistance.
Safety and operation efficiency designed and maintained
- Fast and responsive system for maximum safety and fume containment
- Comfortable and draught-free working conditions
- Reduced energy consumption of the entire laboratory
- Different access levels to the control system for easy integration and maintenance
Our systems are the fastest and most accurate for all types of fume cupboard configurations. We deliver solutions that are easy to install and maintain.
All of our systems come with an interactive touch screen and airflow sensors with an adjustment period of 3 seconds.
Entropic’s lab system supervises the laboratory conditions in real-time and provides alarms in case of a malfunction. The supervision is done via a clear and visual interface that enables operation and control parameters to be easily controlled, reset and downloaded.
Room temperature and pressure conditions are displayed instantly. All the chosen parameters of every fume cupboard of the laboratory are visualized in relation to their setpoints. Visualizations of measured data and setpoints make the system very illustrative.
Besides this, there is also a monitoring and supervising system offered, that provides storage and traceability of the data.
Our expertise allows us to design solutions for:
- single fume cupboards
- multiple fume cupboards with single-room air pressure control
- multiple fume cupboards with multi-room air pressure control.
We used these systems in the Henkel Ireland Operations and Research Building
The client needed to be able to maintain the laboratory room pressurisation profile whatever the fume cupboard operational condition by controlling the laboratory supply air and general extract air.
We used the MFC VAV Damper to ensure that the air pressure profile was maintained.
Our control system was also used to limit the number of operational fume cupboards at any one time to 14 (out of 30) and was integrated with Building Management System (BMS) for feedback.
