Laboratory Testing

Laboratory Testing

Our in-house labs in Dallas and Houston contain airflow measuring stations with NIST traceable calibration. Sheltered instruments are used for calibration verification of all field and laboratory instruments at regular intervals according to procedures developed by EAB employees. Air distribution devices can also be tested in the laboratory to accurately establish correction factors for field measurement.

Our Houston laboratory also contains a hydronic testing station that is capable of measuring the performance of various types of hydronic control devices, such as auto flow valves, pressure independent control valves, and circuit balancing valves.

EAB can be specified to test terminal devices for control fidelity, damper leakage and casing leakage. Our Houston laboratory can also test Laboratory Control System (LCS) components, including pressurization tracking control and fume hood sash control. EAB is one of the only independent firms in North America that has performed testing of all of the major LCS vendor systems according to a defined test criteria developed by EAB in coordination with various consulting engineers and building owners.
