Ultra Durable Filter Media For Fan Filter Units

Axair supply a wide range of thermal components, fan filter units & filter media to facilitate enclosure cooling and cabinet ventilation. A fan filter is used to dissipate heat within an enclosure or cabinet, preventing the premature failure of the equipment inside it. The most common method is to pull the warm air out (reverse flow) near the top using a fan filter while cooler air is drawn in through a stand alone filter at the bottom of the cabinet. Both fan filter and filter provide protection to IP54 and prevent the ingress of...


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...


Sound & Noise Within Industrial Fan Systems

In the world of HVAC the efficiency of industrial fan systems is often compromised by an ineffectively designed air movement system and poor efficiency. This is often accompanied by unwanted fan or air velocity noise making the whole system less than desirable. The annual UK industrial fan power consumption is estimated at well over 30TW-hours. If best practice was applied within the UK, CO2 emissions alone could be reduced by around 2 million tonnes per annum and electrical costs would also be reduced by a similarly shocking amount. Effici...


Industrial Fans | Future Thinking

It's here! 2017 has arrived, and during the first week back to the office, we have been discussing what lies ahead for in the industrial fans market and for us here at Axair Fans. As many of you will be aware, the demand for industrial fans for Biomass and Biofuel applications was spiked in 2016. Increased funding in support of renewable energy generation and eco friendly fueling in the form of the renewable heat incentive scheme is set to continue throughout 2017. Innovation in industrial fan design continues for Axair by working closely wi...


Ventilation & Energy Efficiency For Powder Control

Clean rooms are vital when it comes to ensuring medicines are contamination free. Investing in new technology in addition to adopting hygienic handling techniques are paramount to effective clean rooms. Not forgetting air ducts and ventilation areas to facilitate the airflow and pressure required to ensure the required number of air changes per house and pressurisation of contaminants. Designers must dedicate time to designing clean rooms and equipment located within them. Modern clean room designs use computer aided engineering programs such a...


Webinars For Convenient CPD Conferencing

The web has changed how we consume content and how business liase with customers. Buyers are becoming increasingly busy with a huge workload and very little time to attend events or lengthy meetings with prospective or current suppliers. No longer do we have to travel long distances for face-to-face communication. Videoconferencing or webinars allows us to address audiences from right where we are. Yet the need to obtain information and educate ourselves is still high on our agendas. No longer do we visit the library for hard to find informatio...


Pressurisation Systems For Access & Safe Evacuation

PRESSURISATION OF STAIRCASES: THE IMPORTANCE OF CORRECTLY SELECTING THE SYSTEM CLASS AND CONTROLLING THE DEGREE OF OVER PRESSURE A pressurisation system is intended to prevent smoke leaking through closed doors into stairs by injecting clean air into the stairwell. The intent is to have the highest pressure in the stairwell and a reducing pressure in the accommodation area to facilitate pedestrian escape route and firefighting access. Since the publication of the relevant standard, EN 12101-6, familiarity has increased along with understanding...


Indoor Air Quality: Ventilation In Schools

Investigating Indoor Air Quality How often do you hear people talking about pollution, air quality and the cleanliness of outdoor air? The fact of the matter is that most of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors and remain unaware of the quality of the air that we breathe in when indoors, be it at home, school, at our workplace or other indoor areas. Studies show that indoor air can be as much as 50x more polluted than the air outside. The department of Education is currently updating Building bulletin 101 (Guidelines for Ventilation, therma...


All About Smoke Control

We've had a heavy focus on Smoke Control over the past year and have continually informed our audience about new legislation, new products and kept our technical knowledge in tip top shape. This week we thought what better time to recap on some of the top five questions we should know about Smoke Control. In the event of a fire, what are the main risks associated with Smoke? The main risks associated with smoke are; Toxicity; including lack of oxygen, inhalation of toxic gases and suffocating gases. Heat; including internal ...
