Hall ventilation system optimises the workplace environment
A hall ventilation system is necessary to achieve an appropriate temperature and clean air in the working environment. Good environmental conditions mean obtaining the right mix of air quality and air temperature, as well as humidity. An appropriate combination of extraction systems can result in a regulated fresh air supply, including cooling and heating, and improvements in energy efficiency. It is not only a matter of compliance with relevant legislation, but also the reduction of energy costs.
ESTA’s two proven air extraction processes
ESTA has developed two extraction processes to achieve air extraction in machine or production halls, where a vast array of manufacturing processes may take place. With the ESTA Push Pull mixed ventilation, contaminated fumes rise and clean air is fed into the upper area of the hall via jet nozzles, which mixes the air in the hall. The air is suctioned through a pipe and led to the filtration unit, from which the clean air is redirected to the supply air system. With the ESTA upstream layered or displacement ventilation system, the clean air is fed through source vents close to the floor instead. Both systems require a central extraction unit which can be installed in the interior of the production hall or outdoors and is connected with an extraction and feed air pipeline.
Central extraction systems
The configurable and modular ESTA DUSTMAC series can be employed as an extraction system. It filters all kinds of dust and its filters are adapted to the type of dust filtration required. The modular welding fume filter WELDEX FE is ideal for extracting large volumes of air from 20,000 to 120,000 m³ / h and can be used both for direct extraction and as a hall ventilation system. Where space is limited and pipelines are out of the question, the free-standing FILTOWER Plug & Play hall ventilation system is an alternative or supplement to direct extraction. The FILTOWER filter tower can capture many forms of dust, smoke as well as oil mist. It is ideal for welding, soldering, grinding, polishing, machining and milling processes. It just needs connection to the mains, compressed air and it is ready to start work on improving air circulation. It excels with its low-noise, straightforward handling and trouble-free maintenance.
Excel beyond statutory limits
By providing efficient air circulation, manufacturing companies can comply with statutory regulations governing this aspect of occupational health and safety. Going further, by promoting and acting to provide a comfortable working environment, with the latest in industrial ventilation and extraction systems, will no doubt result in additional benefits including lower operational costs and improved output.
