Keeping facilities clean and closely monitored is crucial to ensuring the safety of employees and livestock, as well as overall efficiency in the production process. Ventilation plays a key part in this, as industrial sites are prone to airborne particles such as dust and chemical vapours. Even large and open work areas require adequate exhaust equipment in place, which is where Fanmaster’s versatile range of hooded roof fans comes in.
Constructed from highly durable steel and a weatherproofed aluminium cap, these fixed exhaust units can be hard wired into existing ducting and used in various building types including factories, warehouses, workshops and plants. When used in tandem with Fanmaster’s range of industrial coolers, they are also capable of lowering interior temperatures to maintain a healthy and comfortable environment for workers. Thermal factors are particularly important where radiant heat from machinery occurs, or when the building might have limited natural airflow from outside.
The first step to determining the best ventilation system for an industrial business is to analyse the room’s oxygen demand. This involves measuring the airflow rate in cubic feet per minute (CFM) required by the size and purpose of the site. All Fanmaster roof fans have a CFM rating, to make this decision-making process straightforward. Other important considerations involve cumulative noise level and potential hazards in the building, such as flammables.
Poor air monitoring can be disastrous when it comes to health. An abundance of airborne particles can lead to eye and nose irritation – even lung damage in more serious circumstances. Where hazardous chemicals are being used, lack of oxygen might lead to grogginess, posing a serious danger when operating large machinery.
Fanmaster’s industrial-grade solutions help to minimise these contaminants through mechanical ventilation. Available in 400, 600, and 800mm sizes and various power levels, this range of hooded roof fans are of the highest quality, having undergone rigorous testing procedures over extended periods of time. They are capable of filtering heat, smoke, welding fumes, bacteria and dust out of factories and large spaces in substantial volumes and short turnarounds.
