Industrial Ventilation System Design

An effective industrial ventilation system design provides a safe, high-performing environment for your site

Dust, fumes, heat, humidity and other pollutants can create a hazardous environment for your workforce.  Poor product quality, environmental concerns and negative health and wellbeing of employees can all be the result of ineffective ventilation and air condition.  Sectors such as cereals, cement, food, chemicals, life sciences and paper & tissue are particularly impacted due to the by-products and fumes generated during production. 

Proven over 15 years with complex ventilation and filtration challenges

From consultancy to full turnkey packages, our team is proven in the investigation, design, planning, installation and commissioning of bespoke industrial ventilation system design.  Wholly independent of suppliers, clients such as Scottish Power and McVities trust in our objective and insight-led approach.  We believe in solutions that work long-term, covering ventilation, filtration, extraction, heating, cooling or a blend of all (HVAC). 

Our ventilation system design approach is in accordance with the world-leading American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). We work to ISO-9001 standards and we review constantly for energy-saving best practice. Recognised by the HSE, our methodology gives confidence to clients of compliance and effectiveness of our delivery.

Ventilation Systems

Ventilation in its most simple terms is the combination of extraction and input of air to manage air conditions. It is the balance of these dynamics that must be carefully considered by our expert team.  Our ventilation system design approach solves the challenge our client is facing without causing others.

Detailed analysis, including environmental surveys and LEV surveys, give us the insight we need to understand your specific requirements. 

Meticulous air flow calculations and the impact of each considered solution are incorporated into all of our design stages, ensuring critical success of the project further down the line. For example, in food production/high-care environments, air input systems must include an element of filtration to ensure no unwanted contaminants enter through the air flow.

We thoroughly study and present solutions to client prior to construction and installation, ensuring consideration not only of initial investment but also ongoing costs linked to serving and maintenance.

Heating & Heat Recovery Systems

Maintaining correct temperatures for worker comfort, effective production and storage conditions in production environments can be complex and typically encompasses a combination of ventilation, heating and/or cooling solutions. Our energy-efficient approach to heating systems focuses on best value for both client and the environment. We can design, build and install your heating system as a stand-alone solution or part of an integrated HVAC system, covering a range of radiant, convective, warm air and heat recovery solutions. 

Heat produced through industrial processes and equipment such as air compressors and electrical equipment can create intensely uncomfortable localised areas of production. Dispersing this heat effectively throughout the site as part of a heat recovery system is an environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient method of industrial heating.  We can design both open and closed systems using the twin rotary screw technology of the Heliex Waste to Heat Energy System, which can be applied in any process generated waste heat, including wet steam.
