Industrial Air System Components
Industrial air conveying systems are about air movement for ventilation purposes, whether the design has air moving along a duct system or across a building interior space. Air conveying systems can be simple or complex, but in both cases, the primary component is a fan, blower, or vacuum producer.
A simple design would be a rooftop or wall exhaust fan with an air intake louver (to prevent weather entrainment) that provides internal heat relief. In contrast, the more complex systems tend to be process-related and consist of duct or vacuum tubing, an air mover either a fan or blower, flexible connectors, a flow control device such as a damper or VFD, pollutant capture hood, air cleaning device, for example, a dust collector or scrubber, discharge stack and silencers for noise control. In both cases, effective air conveying systems are designed around the airstream composition and configured using quality components with the proper materials of construction. And, if the airstream has wide temperature fluctuation or the constituents are bulk materials, corrosive, erosive, or merely clean air, coupling the proper components together creates a long-term solution.
Over fifty percent of our air system work involves rework and making corrections to installed systems, so they function as originally designed.
Air conveying system design is about:
- Minimizing the pressure loses thru the conveying system.
- Minimizing horsepower requirements.
- Controlling or modulating airflow.
- Selecting the correct materials of construction – aluminum, stainless steel, carbon, galvanized steel, FRP or PVC.
- Maintaining airflow thru the system to minimize particulate and material deposition.
- Maintaining the integrity of duct and components by selection of proper materials of construction.
Industrial Air Conveying System Components
Industrial Fans & Blowers – Industrial fans and blowers move the air either in a positive or negative mode. The selection of fans or blowers must be “matched” with the airstream chemistry, temperature, and materials in transport.
Industrial Dampers and Louvers – Industrial dampers/louvers provide control, isolation, backdraft prevention, and/or pressure relief in industrial air systems. SysTech is your trusted source for louvers and dampers used for industrial and heavy-duty applications.
Industrial Duct – Properly designed and fabricated duct, elbows, and components are essential to an efficient industrial air system. Optional duct and fittings in many construction materials including carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, FRP, and PVC.
Flexible Connectors – For optimal long-term duct integrity in industrial air systems expansion/flexible joints are an important part of a complete duct system.
Extraction Arms – Extendible arms with hose or metal tubing and capture hoods allow efficient capture of contaminating airstream at the source.
Industrial Air Filtration Systems – Air filtration is always a consideration in clean air systems and is easily fitted to the intake or exhaust of building ventilation or process systems.
