First, it’s important to understand what ‘ventilation’ means. Ventilation refers to the process
where clean outdoor air is supplied to a space, while stale air is removed.
Ventilation is specially required for commercial and industrial spaces to control indoor air
quality by diluting and displacing indoor pollutants. Ventilation also controls temperature,
humidity and air motion.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VENTILATION IN AN INDUSTRIAL SETTING:
Industrial facilities are often places that produce toxic air particles, hazardous chemical fumes,
dust, and other harmful vapors. To reduce the effect of such floating dangers, proper industrial
ventilation needs to be installed. Industrial ventilation removes the bad air and replaces it with
fresh air from outside.It is difficult to ensure warehouses and factories are kept well ventilated, but proper ventilation
in a factory environment is absolutely essential for both the employees as well as the equipment
Why Is Ventilation In an Industry Such A Big Deal?
Fresh and clean air in a workspace enables a more productive and healthy workforce. Poor air
quality can actually seriously impact the health of your staff, with symptoms including :
• irritations of eyes, nose, and throat
• nausea, dizziness
• dry skin and rashes
• mental fatigue, headache, and sleepiness
• airway infections, cough
• hoarseness, wheezing
It is essential by law that industries need to be adequately ventilated in the proper manner. This
means that clean air needs to be drawn from an external source outside of the industry and
circulated around the building.
It is necessary to dilute and remove humid air and provide sufficient air movement within the
building to make the air feel fresh.
As well as providing sufficient fresh air to breathe, the regulations also require that an industry
has ventilation to successfully remove excess heat and maintain the heat levels.
In small workplaces like a small office, for example, doors and windows may well be sufficient
to comply with the regulations but in larger premises like industrial factories, mechanical
ventilation will be required.
One of the methods of industrial ventilation used to keep employees safe is installing local
When contamination levels are high, local exhaust is typically used. It works by removing the
contaminated air close to the source, and then sending that air through a series of filters on its
way out of the facility.
Alfa Fans have designed three types of Exhaust Fans to suit your industrial needs:
EXHAUST FAN WITH COVER:
● Exhaust Fan can be bolted directly to the wall.
● Exhaust fans are designed for low-pressure exhausting and cooling applications to
provide optimum performance.
● They are built around an Energy Efficient motor with dynamically balanced impellers
for smooth & vibration-free operation
● Exhaust fans to keeps the moisture away and gets that air flowing. For rooms that are
always fresh and alive.
● Designed specifically for the purpose, the motor has prelubricated double ball bearing.
● Noise less Operation & maintenance free design
FLAME PROOF EXHAUST FAN:
● Flame proof Exhaust fans help remove fumes, dust, smoke or steam from poorly
● Six powerful blades are powered by an explosion proof motor to handle environments
.Exhaust fans have a totally enclosed cooled motor.
When considering the ventilation in a factory environment, you need to consider a number of
aspects, including: air quality, temperature, humidity, energy efficiency, cost efficiency, and
environmental impact. These will all have a bearing on the design of effective industrial fans
for the factories of today.
At Alfa fans, we offer a fully bespoke service to suit all your ventilation requirements. All Alfa
Industrial fans are made to the highest standards by industry experts, ensuring you get the best
system suited perfectly to your facilities needs and specifications.
