Strobic Fume Exhaust System in Otago


Airepure

Strobic Lab Fume Exhaust System Supplied to Mellor Laboratories Building, University of Otago

Mellor Laboratories was the the first major phase of the $56m refurbishment of the University of Otago Science I Building, which features a flexible chemistry super-lab for 112 students.  This redevelopment project involved the creation of a new exterior building design, more laboratories, and improved airflow and ventilation systems.

An article and video regarding this installation was published in Otago Daily Times (12th March 2017) https://www.odt.co.nz/news/campus/university-of-otago/surprise-delight-real-swan%E2%80%99-emerges

Within this article, the Strobic system is mentioned:
"A massive ventilation system in place of a chimney shoots gas from the lab 50m in the air at such speed the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust had to be notified because it could disrupt a helicopter flight."

Within this article, the Strobic system is mentioned:
An image of the three Strobic Air extraction systems at Mellor Laboratories are compared to an image of the many verticle exhaust stacks on the roof of the Science II building at the University of Otago.  "The hedgehog extraction system on the roof of the Science II building at the University of Otago. The adjoining Mellor Laboratories uses a tri-motor extraction eliminating the forest of pipes."

Airepure supplied the manifolded Strobic lab fume exhaust fan systems for this project.

Strobic fan systems are a cost-saving replacement for the tall exhaust stacks and centrifugal exhaust fans that have conventionally been used in laboratory exhaust systems.

Strobic lab fume exhaust systems prevent re-entrainment, by sending a jet plume of diluted exhaust air up to 50m high where odours and other contaminants are dispersed effectively eliminating them from the local environment.
