Acoustic and Air Quality LabCopyright: EBC
The institute’s acoustic and indoor air quality lab in the E.ON ERC Main Building is equipped with its own air handling unit (AHU) with activated carbon fi lters. The AHU supplies the lab with clean and conditioned air. The emitting odours of e.g. building products can be evaluated with trained test subjects and a comparison scale that provides six different acetone-air mixtures. The surrounding wall structure of the lab is sound absorbing and enables good conditions to measure and optimize the acoustic properties of HVAC components.
