Because industrial ventilation encompasses the cleaning, moving, and tempering air safely and productively, the need to have control systems in place is mandatory across all industrial facilities. SysTech has helped clients meet ventilation requirements in a broad spectrum of businesses, both small and large, for a multiplicity of air and material handling applications. Below are examples of the different industries we do business with every day.
Excess dust and noise is a major concern in the manufacturing industry. Some facilities may require fume collection of Chromium from welding operations while others need oil mist collection for machining operations. As air moving and cleaning equipment is installed, noise abatement structures and curtains are a secondary need. Code compliance questions need to be addressed as explosion, noise and breathable contaminant issues are commonplace.
Oil & Gas Industry
Gas compressor or transfer stations require an acoustical enclosure (metal building) with a ventilation system for control of high internal heat and excessive noise generation. Supplied equipment includes SysTech Lo-Noise™ Modules, fan silencers, fans, louvers, dampers, EXP proof motors, ridge vents, heaters and gas sensor controls.
Air quality and containment are the key issues in this industry. The proliferation of new drugs of increasing potency/volatility requires the handling of potentially toxic and explosive materials. Dust collectors use a bag-in/ bag-out (BIBO) procedure for changing filters and collected dust disposal. BIBO HEPA housings are frequently employed in the process stream.
Wastewater Treatment Industry
Corrosive environments are inherent in waste treatment plants and lift stations where FRP or PVC fans are frequently installed to prolong equipment life. Odor control issues are addressed with an FRP or PVC exhaust system with wet scrubber, conveying duct and source capture hoods.
Power house ventilation requires large amounts of ventilation air. Results are formulated with multiple rooftop and wall mounted supply and exhaust fans along with custom air handlers. Careful selection is required as excessive noise levels directed onto adjacent properties is not tolerated.
Educational Services Industry
This industry encompasses colleges and universities, technical and trade schools and research laboratories in an academic setting. These sites require ventilation systems comprised of dust and fume collection systems, laboratory exhausts of chemical fumes, along with protection against fire and explosion. Compliance to codes and protection of students, operating personal and facilities is a primary focus in these environments.
Numerous points of dust generation require localized bin vents, transfer points, and at times a centralized dust collection system with a material reclaim blower package. Complete equipment packages along with all electrical alarms, sensors, pneumatic controls and piping make up the completed control system.
Sufficient ventilation is important for the processing of raw foods and keeping fruits and vegetables fresh to market. Meeting design airflow to poultry houses where the raising of chickens and turkeys for meat, eggs or recovered byproducts is mandatory.
Modular Home Industry
Assembly of home room modules creates numerous points of dust generation from operation of power hand tools. A centralized vacuum conveying system attached directly to each tool, including piping and controls comprises an effective exhaust cleaning system.
Woodworking is a diverse industry that includes the manufacture of cabinets, fixtures, furniture, flooring, doors, and architectural millwork as examples. And beyond the dedicated woodworking facility are school wood shops and training facilities, and department woodshops in almost every manufacturing facility. Dust collection systems are designed to address the capture and filtration of a broad range of particulate sizes using optional dust collector technologies that are available to maintain air quality.
