Warehouse Ventilation | Centrifugal Roof Fans

Warehouse Ventilation Is an important factor for many businesses... According to energy advisors, warehouses spend on average 15% of their budget on energy bills every year. Mechanical ventilation can contribute to a high percentage of this spend. In this update we explore the importance of effective warehouse ventilation. Like many hazards, poor ventilation poses a risk to employee health, machines and equipment as well as goods and products. To avoid negative impacts on businesses ventilation hazards must be eliminated. These include a re...


Detecting HVAC System Failures with Constant Volume Fans

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 failures 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. An FCU would place a differential pressure switch on either side of the fan inlet and outlet and monitor the pressure difference bet...

Selecting the Right Industrial Fan

Fan selection is perceived to be a relatively straightforward matter. First you take a look at what the competition uses and scale it to suit your product. Next you find an amenable supplier who will let you test a couple of fans, then you're in business - maybe. Sounds familiar? Well it doesn't need to be that way, especially when you realise just how many varieties of industrial fan are possible and the amount of help that can be obtained from an experienced supplier with a diverse product range. Selecting An industrial Fan: What to consi...


Marine Environments | Engine Room Ventilation

Marine Environments: Engine Room Ventilation There are two situations that can greatly reduce an engines life and efficiency; the use of dirty fuel and more relevant to this article, inadequate engine room ventilation and ventilation of engine components. In short, engines that ingest cool air burn more efficiently than those that ingest warm air. Engines produce a lot of heat, that’s how they operate and how they produce power. They must be adequately cooled to provide ample ventilation for continued operation. The warmer an engine room i...
