Fans Used in Renewable Energy Source – Wind Power

The versatility and type of fans used within air movement projects is apparent when you look at our applications page from smoke ventilation, air handling units and chemical storage units, Industrial fans are used in a whole host of machines and processes to cool components or facilitate the effective running of equipment.  When looking at the components within the design and manufacture of the popular renewable energy source, wind turbines, industrial fans play an integral role. How Do Wind Turbines Operate? Wind turbines operate on a si...


Industrial Fans for Pharmaceutical Isolators

In biological cabinets, the need to protect personnel and the environment from exposure to biohazards and cross contamination during routine procedures is of the utmost importance. Many isolators are used within pharmaceutical manufacturing processes including negative pressure and positive pressure units. Types of Pharmaceutical Isolators Negative pressure pharmaceutical isolators are separative devices used for the safe handling of toxic drugs and to retain other process generated particles, the isolator provides a full barrier protect...


Reducing Hazardous Fumes in Spray Booths

The construction and maintenance of vehicles often involve refurbishment or new application spray finishes of suitable paint such as a marine grade finish. The primary dangers involved with the presence of these gases include both fires and explosions as a result of using flammable paints and coatings, as well as exposure to personnel to chemical hazards and toxic substances. Often completed in confined spaces, if not correctly and adequately ventilated, can cause ill health for those involved in the process. During the spray process, paint ...


The Importance Of UV Protection For Fan Filter Units

The UV protection of a fan filter unit for an enclosure is an element that rarely factors into the purchasing decision when selecting fan filters or fan filter units. This element should not be overlooked especially if the enclosure is going to be situated outside. UV protection may seem irrelevant but without adequate protection, the shiny new unit will soon become an eyesore making it look old and outdated.  UV degradation can be a huge problem. It can make the plastic crack and disintegrate causing irreparable damage. This means having to ...

Effective Mechanical & Natural Cargo Ventilation

A fundamental part of cargo transportation on ships and vessels is the prevention of loss and damage to the cargo. Damage to cargo through moisture ingress is one of the most common causes of cargo damage and results in a significant amount of cargo claims from manufacturers and distributors. Claimants typically allege that failure by the ship to ventilate correctly resulted in the development of condensation (commonly known as “sweat”), causing the cargo to deteriorate. To prevent the occurrence of moisture or sweat within ships and ves...

Ductless Ventilation In Fume Cupboards

Science laboratories within educational establishments such as universities and schools  should be committed to ensuring that the users of ductless and ducted fume cupboards handling hazardous substances, are suitably protected from the inherent hazards associated with procedures undertaken as part of their duties. These units also have a duty to reduce both their carbon emissions and reduce overall energy consumption. This works alongside the Governments targets to reduce overall consumption and to improve energy efficiency initiatives. The ...

HVAC Fan Failure Monitoring

A method of detecting fan failure within fan coil units in heating and ventilation. The undetected failure of fan coil units is a long standing problem in heating and ventilation. Fan coil units like the types found in H&V applications tend to be unmonitored and system fan failure can often go unnoticed to the point where a refit or refurbishment is required or where air simply ceases to flow from the ductwork. The oldest format for monitoring the FCU is to use differential pressure switches. Within the fan coil unit, the installer would ...
