Research Lab Air Handling

Today’s research facilities require innovative air handling solutions that can halt the passage of atmospheric contaminants and meet their strict performance requirements. Air Enterprises offers integrated turnkey, single-source solutions that deliver the best value available in an air handling unit with lowest total cost to research labs.

  • Multiple installation options
    We offer integrated turnkey, single-source FactoryBilt or SiteBilt replacement solutions that deliver the best value with total lowest cost to research labs. Whether you need an on-site assembly or would like your air handling unit shipped fully assembled, we can accommodate your needs.
  • High-quality, sustainable performance
    Air Enterprises custom air handling units are ideal for research labs, with features such as noncorrosive construction materials, air and vapor tight casing, seals and flashing, and special filters to maintain the highest air quality. Our units are also wash-down ready for reduced maintenance and cost.
  • 40-year service life
    Our custom air handling units save your institution money over time in terms of energy usage, repair and replacement costs. All Air Enterprises’ units are manufactured with recyclable aluminum and come with a 40-year noncorrosion warranty, guaranteeing your lab’s return on investment.
  • Energy Efficiency and Green Commitment
    Air Enterprises solutions are leading the charge in high efficiency, low CO2, life cycle reduction. Utilizing best in the industry practices, leading subsystems, NEMA premium efficiency motors, high efficiency fans, low pressure drop filtration, low leakage casings and many more features make us a natural choice.
  • Total Life Cycle Cost Analysis & Value Engineering
    Multi stage filtration, total cost of ownership modeling and energy efficiency analysis underpin our design in working through threat assessment and mitigation options.
  • Testing, Commissioning & Training
    Air Enterprises can provide complete testing and commissioning processes including re-commissioning and life cycle inspection services to ensure continued protection. Training is requisite to maintenance of continued protective state. We can provide comprehensive onsite training and procedures.

Air filtration

We provide air filtration to remove aerosol contaminants from the air, and air cleaning to the removal of gases or vapors from the air. Airborne contaminants are gases, vapors, or aerosols (small solid and liquid particles). Sorbent and mechanical combinations can be provided. A complete range of HEPA and on demand radial HEPA, gas phase V-Bed filtration with activated carbon, silica gel, activated alumina, zeolites, molecular sieves, synthetic polymeric sorbents available.

  • Mechanical Filtration
    Arrestance and standard rate particle size efficiency supplied up to Merv 20 providing up to 99.9999% arrestance of .3 to 1 micron particulates suitable for clean room, chemical, biological, and virus filtration for personnel protection, shelter in place and related needs.
  • Electrostatic Filtration & Pre-Filtration
    Electrostatic and/or disposable pre-filtration may be combined with mechanical and gas phase filtration for a layered removal.
  • Gas Phase Filtration
    We supply a complete range of sorbent filters providing both chemical and physical adsorption. Activated carbon, silica gel, activated alumina, zeolites, molecular sieves, synthetic polymeric sorbents available. We integrate energy efficient regeneration of non-chemically active sorbents.
  • Gaseous Detection
    We can provide a complete range of gaseous detection systems and integrated control designs.

Energy recovery for research labs
Air Enterprises is an expert in the design and construction of specialized systems for lab energy recovery systems. LER can substantially reduce the mechanical heating and cooling requirements associated with conditioning ventilation air in most laboratories. Laboratories typically require 100% outside air at high ventilation rates— between 6 and 15 air changes per hour—primarily for safety reasons. The heating and cooling energy needed to condition this air, as well as the fan energy needed to move it, is 5 to 10 times greater than the amount of energy used in most offices for those purposes. Heating and cooling systems can be downsized when energy recovery is used, because energy recovery systems reduce peak heating and cooling requirements.

For more than 40 years, Air Enterprises has partnered with some of the most recognizable research lab facilities in the world, including Sanford Burnham, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institutes of Health.
