Corrosive Fume Extraction in the Water Treatment Process

To provide water that is safe for human consumption, there are a number of processes that the water treatment industry use. Coagulation and flocculation are often the first steps in water treatment. Chemicals with a positive charge are added to the water. The positive charge of these chemicals neutralises the negative charge of dirt and other dissolved particles in the water. When this occurs, the particles bind with the chemicals and form larger particles, called floc. To separate the floc from the water, it is allowed to settle and fal...


ATEX Fume Extraction for Landfill Organic Waste

Landfill gas is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic materials which are put into landfill. The gas is composed of roughly 50% methane (CH4) and 50% carbon dioxide (CO2) and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and is harmful to the environment. When organic waste is first deposited into landfill, it goes through the initial stages of decomposition where small amounts of methane are generated. As the conditions change during the subsequent stages of decomposition, an increase ...


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...


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...


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...


Laboratory Fume Extraction Roadshow

Following on from the Effective Laboratory exhibition at Strathclyde University on 1st March 2016, Axair Fans took to the City of Nottingham to showcase new developments and energy efficient air movement technology while sharing our technical knowledge and experience of laboratory air movement. Held on Wednesday 21st September, the event saw delegates attend breakout sessions to discuss and learn more about effective laboratory design and system integration. Particularly interesting was the focus regards how an enhanced laboratory design can...


The Benefits of Warehouse Ventilation

For businesses with a warehouse, ensuring that it is well ventilated is vital. The main reason is the risk to the health of the employees. Not only will it affect health, but it will also affect the productivity of the employees, the equipment, goods and energy bills. In order to run an efficient warehouse, ventilation must be carefully considered. Axair were asked to supply a local engineering firm with several plate axial fans for their large warehouse. The company then visited the warehouse to gather some feedback. The product engineers a...


Industrial Fans For Food Processing & Manufacturing

The food processing industry is big business. With new processes, new packaging and more competition there’s added pressure on operations teams to implement the most efficient and cost effective method of manufacturing at every step in the production line. Like many industries, the food processing industry involves a huge array of processes connected to the final end product. Taking a raw material to a finished product ready to be shipped is an important part of manufacturing. This means that the highest standards of food hygiene must be a...


Axial Fans | The Hot Spot For Tanning Machine Reliability

We’re all aware that Summer is approaching and with that comes the compulsory suntan required to carry off those garish shorts hidden deep in the wardrobe.  Many of us will achieve this by paying a few visits to our local tanning salon. We also know that these tanning machines or sunbeds use ultraviolet lamps or bulbs that emit UV light to help the user achieve a bronzed suntan. The quality of the tan can depend on the type of ultraviolet lamp or bulb used within these booths. In many cases a quartz type of glass is used and depending on the...
