Today’s teaching and research buildings often bring several scientific disciplines together under one roof. While this arrangement helps foster a more collaborative approach to problem-solving, it can be a challenge to serve such a wide range of disciplines with a central vacuum system that supplies the same vacuum to every lab.

In addition, central systems can’t provide vacuum that is deep or stable enough for certain applications, so some labs may not even be able to use the central vacuum. Complicating matters further is that central supply is often overbuilt in new facilities – just in case the capacity is ever needed – and can’t easily be modified when needs change.

In contrast, modular lab vacuum networks can be tailored easily to the needs of the various disciplines, and can adapt as needs change over time. To learn more, contact VACUUBRAND today.
