The Strobic Air® Smart Fan™, from Strobic Air Corp., a subsidiary of Met-Pro, is the latest improvement to the TriStack® mixed flow exhaust fan line for “safety critical” applications such as laboratory fume hood exhaust and ventilation for specialized care environments. It senses pressure changes as system demand changes and continually adjusts fan speed to produce optimal flow. In multi-fan applications, fans are cycled on and off as required. It also can sense a fan failure and turn on a standby fan to maintain safe exhaust operations. Strobic Air Corp., Harleysville, PA, 215-723-4700,
