Better Industrial Ventilation Systems are the Key to a Better Facility

Who Needs Industrial Ventilation?

When you say the word ventilation most people think about air conditioning or fans. Industrial Ventilation, however, is something completely different. Ventilation for Industrial facilities isn’t designed for total climate control, but rather for cooling of large spaces by improving airflow. This can include fans, and even air conditioning in some sections, but really it’s thinking about the entire facility as one complete system. Moffitt Corporation specializes in designing, manufacturing, and installing that system.

industrial ventilation systemsEach and every industrial facility needs a ventilation system designed to meet its individual requirements. Several factors, including building size, process heat, external environment, all play a part in determining the ventilation required in your building. Some industries need cooling to make their internal conditions tolerable for human workers, other just need the workplace to be a little more comfortable and easier to work in.

In general, industrial ventilation is the process of increasing airflow in large open spaces. This can include factory floors, caster decks, turbine halls, and all sorts of spaces that house heavy machinery or equipment. The often have high ceilings and are generally pretty open. When we talk about ventilation in industrial environments, we talk about these spaces.

How Do Industrial Ventilation Systems Work?

The main job of an industrial ventilator is to get rid of the heat and/or humidity that is a byproduct of the production process. An Industrial Ventilator provides the opening through which that warm air can easily evacuate the building. For a large industrial space this ventilator is usually a non-powered, natural ventilator but sometimes fans or other powered equipment are necessary.

The best way to remove the warm air from a facility is to let it evacuate naturally through the ceiling. A natural ventilator, like the MoffittVent, Labyrinth, or GreenRoo, is the perfect device for this job. Except for a few instances, natural ventilation should be the first thing that comes to mind when looking at the best ventilation systems.

Remember, Good ventilation systems keep employees healthy, happy, and productive.

Designing the Best Ventilation System for Your Facility

When buildings reach a certain size exhaust fans aren’t enough. A complete industrial ventilation system is needed to properly cool the entire building envelope. At Moffitt, ventilation isn’t a part of what we do, it’s all we do.

For that reason, we’re the ones to call when it’s time to upgrade your facility’s ventilation system. Our sales team will show you all of your ventilation options. Then, we’ll help you choose right one for your building and your budget. Our design team, with their ventilation CFD modeling, will help you see the impact of a system before you install it. Industrial Ventilation CFD Modeling can mean the difference between a good system and the perfect one.

Of course, Moffitt is also a ventilation installation company in that we offer complete turn-key service. Our team has decades of experience installing all types of ventilation equipment, and we’re licensed throughout the U.S. Moffitt team installs a variety of systems including Natural Ventilation systems, Pressure Gravity Ventilation® systems, Powered Ventilation systems, and more.
