VENTILATION SYSTEMS

What is Ventilation?

Ventilation is simply the circulation of air. However, more specifically it’s the extraction of stale, overheated, or contaminated air and the supply and distribution of fresh air in the amounts required to provide healthy, safe, and comfortable conditions for the occupants of a room.

For the extraction of stale, overheated or contaminated air and the supply and distribution of fresh air in the amounts required to provide healthy, safe and comfortable conditions for the occupants of a room.

Why Do We Need Ventilation Systems?

There are a number of reasons why we require air ventilation. These include:

  • To improve the conditions within an enclosed space.
  • To create an environment which stimulates occupants to a higher efficiency.
  • To protect products from deteriorating.
  • To protect buildings from deteriorating.

When considering a store room, the purpose of the ventilation would be to reduce the deterioration of the product. Consumables have a certain shelf life; all we can do is to ensure that the recommended storage guidelines for the product are met. If the store room has mixed consumables then work to the most perishable first. Ventilation on its own may not be sufficient to meet the requirements and other processes such as dehumidifying/humidifying or air conditioning may need to be considered. A store room may have chemicals in storage that require ventilation. Battery rooms require ventilation to prevent build up of gases such as hydrogen and to keep the temperature correct to prolong the life of the batteries.

Similarly deterioration can occur to the fabric of a building if there is not adequate ventilation e.g. moisture concentration as a result of a shower, or moisture entering the building through the roof or walls etc. Again, dehumidification may be a better consideration than ventilation, dependant on the scale of the problem.

We provide assistance with any ventilation, dehumidification, and humidification requirements you may have.

 

Example Applications for Air Ventilation

Air ventilation can be used for a range of applications. For example, when considering a storeroom, the purpose of the ventilation would be to reduce the deterioration of the product. Consumables have a certain shelf-life, therefore, ventilation systems are used to ensure that the recommended storage guidelines for the products are met. If the storeroom has mixed consumables then the system should be optimised to work for the most perishable items first. However, ventilation on its own may not be sufficient enough to meet the requirements and therefore, other processes such as dehumidifying/humidifying or air conditioning systems may need to be considered.

Another example is a battery storage room; this requires ventilation to prevent a build-up of gases such as hydrogen and to keep the temperature correct to prolong the life of the batteries.

Similarly, deterioration can occur to the fabric of a building if there is not adequate ventilation e.g. moisture concentration as a result of a shower, or moisture entering the building through the roof or walls etc.
