Hybrid Ventilation System

pressure gravity system

A Hybrid Ventilation system is ideal for buildings with lower ceiling height and/or less heat emanating from the process. It utilizes natural ventilation and powered ventilation together. We like to think of it as natural ventilation with an extra boost from powered ventilation.

One example is a Pressure Gravity System® which uses passive natural ventilation for exhaust and powered sidewall fans for enhanced air intake.

Hybrid Ventilation Systems utilize a complete building approach to achieve the right solution for the given facility. By combining ventilators and exhaust fans in a way that works with the buildings natural airflow, more effective and efficient systems can be designed.

This allows for a more comfortable environment where the plant personnel are working without wasting energy to cool spaces that don't need it. State-of-the-art computer control systems are often used determine the right conditions and adjust the system accordingly. With a Hybrid System, Natural Ventilation Solutions can be put to work in facilities where it may have previously been impossible.

Benefits of Hybrid Ventilation

  • Achieve the benefits of natural ventilation when possible
  • Improve indoor air-quality
  • Remove humidity, smoke, and fog
  • Reduce operation & maintenance costs
  • Increase fresh air at the operating floor
  • Improve personnel comfort
  • Increase evaporative cooling effect
  • Create a positive pressure environment
  • Self-Adjusts to changes in airflow

About Hybrid Ventilation Solutions

Unlike a roof exhaust fan system, a Hybrid Ventilation Solution makes the fans more easily accessible for maintenance. Additionally, the cool, clean air means less wear and tear on the motors, belts (if belt-drive), and fan blades. Additionally, a hybrid solution provides the ability to easily increase air-flow capacity throughout the entire facility.
