Reducing Stress Levels with Clean Air Solutions

  How has COVID-19 impacted your stress levels whilst working in the hospitality, commercial and construction sector? Has it made you rethink about airborne viruses and other potential harmful and unclean air?   Did you know that over 65% of people have suffered with severe stress since COVID-19 restrictions and with 43% claiming to be more depressed than usual and feel alienated in the workplace? Chronic Stress weakens the immune system making us more vulnerable to new infection and public spaces are breeding grounds for bac...


Protecting Care Homes with Clean Air Solutions from Axair

Advanced air and surface purification technology – Wellisair helping care homes stay virus-free during the coronavirus pandemic.   Care home residents often with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable than most to infection, making protecting residents a tough challenge. Even the most diligent cleaning and disinfection routines cannot completely remove microorganisms from the air and surfaces – which are continually being replaced by coughing, sneezing and contaminated hands. In May 2020 the UK Government released Inf...


Higher Performance Diffuser Wheel – E-Wheel Plug Fan Technology

The E-Wheel is geared for maximum performance and efficiency, to achieve this we have optimised inlet conditions by reducing the motor interaction with the airflow path as much as possible. This has resulted in increased airflow and pressure vs our non optimised solution.    ...


The Evolution of the Plug Fan

In the air handling market over the past few years there has been a fundamental shift from old scroll type fans to higher efficiency plug type fans. The older belt driven, or double inlet centrifugal models stood the test of time within ventilation systems due to their cost-effective nature and general simplicity, but as regulations evolved and the demand for higher efficiency within plant grew, they slowly became an unviable option as building owners demanded greater efficiency and a longer more efficient air handling unit life. The requir...

ECFanGrid Cooling Power Delivered to Rolling Stock Yard

We have recently provided a rolling stock maintenance yard with two ECFanGrids as part of a package of works to improve the working environment. Following on site testing, we delivered the ECFanGrid solution within 3 weeks of receiving the order. The problems the facility faced, and our answers to those issues, are explained below. The Problems The temperature within the main workshop at the maintenance yard was too high. This was due to a combination of heat generated from hot works and day-to-day operations coupled with insufficient ventila...


Transformer Cooling Fans

Transformers work to either ‘step up’ or ‘step down’ an incoming power supply. This is done by a precise relationship between the number of turns on the primary and secondary coils. Put simply, a transformer converts energy at one voltage level to energy at another voltage level. Transformers do not have any moving parts but they do suffer losses, these are called either ‘copper losses’ or ‘iron losses’. Copper loss is the electrical power lost in heat as a result of circulating the currents around the transformers copper win...


The Importance of Chemical Storage Ventilation

Many industries require a number of potentially hazardous chemicals in day to day maintenance, manufacturing, cleaning, sterilisation, testing and operating applications. The safe storage of these chemicals involves a number of considerations in terms of temperature, ignition control, ventilation and segregation. We discuss the needs of chemical storage ventilation below. The ventilation of chemical storage areas is of paramount importance to ensure clean air and a safe working factory environment. Ventilation is needed for chemicals and the...


New Industrial Team Member

We are delighted to introduce the latest member to our industrial sales team, Faye. She recently joined the business as a Product Sales Engineer from a background in technical sales in the industrial sector.

How to Save Energy with Fan Speed Control

Speed control is often overlooked when specifying fans, however significant savings can be had by the use of the correct speed controller and fan combination. These are not just direct savings in energy consumed by the fans but indirect savings from ancillary equipment. The addition of a fan speed controller can add extra functionality to products enhancing their usability and safety. It is often desirable where applications have varying output requirements, and control of the motor speed is more efficient than mechanically limiting the proc...
