to the operation of this laboratory is an infrastructure capable of delivering
sustained high volumes of air at high pressure to points within the lab. Every
experiment in the lab taps into this air source through the pipe network and
valve system. Mass flow controllers and back pressure regulators deliver the
desired air flow. A two-step compression system is employed with a 5000 L
receiver tank at 15 bar and a 200 L receiver at 45 bar. The high pressure air
can be additionally HEPA filtered and or dried.
