Success Story: Local Vacuum Networks in a BSL 3 Suite

BSL3 or Biosafety level 3 labs are specialized labs working with highly communicable and pathogenic microbes often transmissible by way of inhalation.[1] These labs can be found in clinical, diagnostic, teaching, research, or production facilities.[2] Recently, a local vacuum network was installed in the Boston area for a BSL 3 laboratory suite. The project was a…

Vac 24seven – Dry, Oil-Free Alternative For Central Vacuum Pumps

Central vacuum systems often rely on resource-hungry pump technology like oil-sealed rotary vane or liquid (water) ring pumps.  Both of these pump technologies rely on fluid to create a seal and generate vacuum.  Replacing the sealing fluid imposes significant operating costs – in the form of maintenance, labor, or materials. VAC 24seven pumps are a dry,…

O and M Savings from Lab Utilities

Campus laboratories are equipment intensive, water intensive and energy intensive. It follows, then, that they are also expensive to operate and maintain. With college budgets squeezed, colleges and universities are looking to laboratories as a source of operating efficiency and cost savings. By some accounts, such as the one in the 2006 issue of Managing…
