Slow & Steady Wins the Race – Inverter Speed Control

Today’s market sees businesses offering faster turnarounds, faster decisions and 24/7 service, so to move slower makes us think we’ll get left behind, that we’ll be losing customers while our competitor's power forwards and as a result, we’ll lose money. So the idea of slowing down to save money is something we don’t consider, however using an inverter to slow down fan systems can be the ideal money saving option. In simple terms, an inverter is used to vary the speed of the motor to match the required load. An inverter can vary t...


Laboratory Fume Extraction: How to Ensure Perfect Performance & Protection

Ensuring that personnel are not exposed to hazardous or odorous chemicals is of paramount importance in laboratory environments, therefore a fume cupboard extraction system is often essential. Simply installing a system is not enough though; operators should consistently check that the cupboard is functioning properly and that the airflow velocity is reaching the required level. The best way to do this is by installing an airflow monitor. Axair are the exclusive UK distributor for SEAT Ventilation, a world leader in the design and manufactur...

Slow Down & Save Money – The Many Benefits of Using an Inverter

The notion of ‘slowing down’ generally isn't top of the list when businesses are trying to save money, however, in the case of fan systems, it can be the ideal option. In most cases, fans are sized and installed to match the maximum ventilation requirements. Installing an inverter allows you to control the speed of your fan motor to match the actual ventilation needs. Reducing the speed of your motor will reduce the amount of energy needed to power it (by as much as 8 times the reduction in speed), which in turn will cut your costs. M...
