Reducing Fan Energy Consumption in Fume Cupboards

The already impressive range of corrosive fume fans from Axair Fans has now been extended to include an energy efficient range featuring B34 type IE5 EC motors located outside of the airstream. As the market demands more energy efficient systems, the introduction of the EC range of fans allows fume cupboard manufacturers to reduce their fan energy consumption by up to 20% without affecting performance, ultimately enhancing the energy efficiency of the entire fume extraction system. System designers are now keen to look at all options to redu...

Why Refurbish AHU Systems with EC Fans Over New AHU Installs

To Refurbish AHU or Not to Refurbish AHU Old buildings can often feature outdated and deteriorating ventilation systems. The first opinion may be to replace the entire air handling unit, but often to refurbish ahu system components can prove beneficial beyond financial gain. This week we look at the advantages to Refurbish AHU Systems over replacing the entire air handling unit itself. One major problem in favour of refurbishment is that of the existing air handling unit system. Ductwork and max air volume delivery are often governed by...


High Performance Cooling for High Power Control Panels

Over the past few years, it’s quite clear that components within high power control panels have got smaller, this is down to the challenges imposed by clients wanting smaller enclosures to fit within much smaller spaces. With often huge amounts of terminals, wiring, circuit breakers, RCBO’s and much more general electrical components packed tightly into panel trunking up against core high power components such as variable frequency drives, motor starters and programmable logic controllers, quarters can be crowded resulting in an increased a...


The Production of Ethylene Gas in Anaerobic Digestion

  The production of ethylene gas in anaerobic digestion requires consideration when it comes to corrosive fume extraction systems. Corrosion resistant polypropylene extraction fans are suitable for this type of harsh environment and are efficient in vacuuming the ethylene gas out of the tank, preventing a hazardous gas build up. Ethylene is a colourless gaseous plant hormone with a sweet odour, it influences many processes within the plant life cycle. It has advantages and disadvantages depending on how and where it is produced. However...


Reducing Ethylene to Slow Down The Food Maturation Process

Reducing ethylene to slow down the food maturation process of fresh produce is key to cutting down the amount of food waste in the retail and hospitality sectors working with fresh produce. Axair have a range of hydroxyl radical technology that reduces the production of ethylene and one company in particular to trial this technology is Freshview Foods Ltd, situated just opposite our premises in Wolstanton. If you’ve ever visited Axair Fans before, you’ll know that we’re located on an industrial estate with a wide range of neighbouring ...
