SysTech Design specializes in industrial ventilation applications, the most impactful engineering control method for improving and maintaining the quality of the air in and around an industrial environment. Whether you need an air pollution control system to treat atmospheric discharge or require a definitive plan to improve indoor air quality, SysTech will assist you in your air quality control strategy. Project size is never an issue; we’ve handled projects from 100 to 250,000 CFM.
Industrial Ventilation Systems: Concept to Start
Recognizing what a client needs and conveying that knowledge to them is important to meeting expectations. From explosion protection to noise control to air pollution control, SysTech stresses the need to clearly define the proposed solution and the expected results of that solution before the work begins.
Successfully applied industrial ventilation systems integrate all project components including the initial system layout, the mechanical and electrical products, installation services and start-up, all on the same page. We define ourselves as a system integrator and have made countless facilities and employees safer, buildings are quieter, and ambient environments dust-free.
When finalizing an industrial ventilation design approach, SysTech can apply single or multiple technology options including:
- Air Pollution Control where particulate, oil mist or gaseous pollutants are present
- Industrial Fans & Blowers when mechanical ventilation is required to move the air
- Explosion Protection when the potential for explosion is present
- Industrial Noise Control when interior and exterior noise levels must be met
- Industrial Vacuum Systems for housekeeping and preventing deposition and “clean-up” of combustible dusts
- Industrial Air Handlers when heating or cooling is required
- Industrial Air Systems when hoods, duct or area containment is necessary
- Steel Building Ventilation Systems for large ventilation projects
Industrial ventilation controls the level of contaminants and ambient conditions in the form of dusts, toxic materials, extreme temperatures, humidity, odor, or explosive gases. When initiating a new system design, it’s important to consider two approaches for your industrial ventilation system, dilution ventilation or source capture (local exhaust). Dilution ventilation reduces the concentration of airborne contaminants by mixing contaminated air with clean or outside air. A building with wall supply fans and exhaust rooftop fans is a classic example. Local exhaust ventilation captures airborne contaminants at or near the source and exhausts them to a safe area. The example, in this case, is a dust collection system with hoods, duct, dust collector, exhaust fan, and stack.
Depending on the processes, work environment, and facility layout, each approach offers differing advantages.
Dilution ventilation systems are typical where large quantities of internal heat, odors or gases are generated and need to be diluted or exhausted. Applied examples are found at:
- Coal Fired Power Plant Building
- LNG Compressor Stations
- Utility Transfer Stations
- Chemical processing Rooms
- Warehouse Temperature de-stratification
Ventilation projects using source capture normally include a hood (s) or an enclosure and a duct system in addition to a fan and air pollution control device. Typical systems might be defined by:
When implementing steps to alleviate ventilation issue, we integrate associated technologies. When you fix one issue, another hidden issue becomes more obvious and needs to be addressed. How do we do that?
- Noise Control with exhaust fan silencers, noise blankets or room enclosures
- Explosion Protection System options including vents, isolation valves, or suppression systems
- Fire Protection Systems with spark arrestor
- Vacuum Systems to clean up dust accumulation on floors and horizontal surfaces
- Make-up Air to maintain a positive building pressure
- HVLS Recirculation Fans to recovery heat or cool work areas
