Compact brochure with all you need to know about industrial ventilation
Compact planning aid for ventilation solutions in industrial environments as well as in large concert and event venues
emco Klima is now offering a compact planning aid for ventilation solutions in industrial environments as well as in large concert and event venues with its ‘emcoair Industrielüftung’ brochure (‘Industrial Ventilation’). The brochure once again confirms the manufacturer’s high level of expertise in creating the best of climate conditions at workplaces and production sites as well as its focus on the effective removal of heat and pollutant burdens. As a planning aid, which is clearly laid out and easy to understand, it conveys the necessary basic knowledge and presents an overview of the wide variety of air ducting options. It concentrates on the presentation of the concepts of mixing, displacement and layer ventilation as well as of the company’s range of products that have been tailored to satisfy the respective demands. It is in this way that it provides planners and plant builders with all the information they need to solve complex ventilation tasks in the industrial sector as well as in large halls and rooms.
The team of writers – consisting of Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Bernd Boiting from the Münster University of Applied Sciences and Dipl.-Ing. Frank Bolkenius, the Managing Director at emco Klima – initially set out the important basics by describing in detail the general framework conditions that need to be observed during the planning of ventilation solutions for both production sites and event venues. The technical specialists have also drawn attention here to the importance of the silicone-free and explosion-protected versions of the products that the Lingen-based company manufactures for special requirements, for example, in the automotive or food industries. The detailed overview of the three basic ventilation concepts, their areas of application and the most important design parameters, that also includes numerous diagrams, is then followed by compact descriptions of the ventilation components that the range of products has to offer. Here, tables providing overviews of technical data and dimensions as well as numerous illustrations and sketches make the choice of the specific and required products easier. It’s also possible to adapt all components and systems to customer-specific requirements with the help of design modifications – which is another way that the company is demonstrating its skill as a specialist for individual project solutions.
The brochure further provides a comprehensive insight into the variety of options that the air-conditioning laboratory in Lingen is able to realise. In addition to numerous modern testing and measuring rooms, the laboratory is also home to an area of 200 square metres that has been dedicated to research into the field of industrial ventilation. A room height of 12 metres allows realistic installation conditions to be reproduced and, for example, permits flow behaviour during cooling processes and penetration depths during heating processes to be mapped in the best way possible for both new developments and project applications. The company has also built on empirical calculation equations and methods to develop a range of planning and simulation tools for use in the design of air duct systems; these have also been presented in the brochure. These tools also include a program that uses the specifications that have been defined in the recently revised VDI Guideline 3802 ‘Raumlufttechnische Anlagen für Fertigungsstätten’ (‘Ventilation systems for production facilities’) to compare the concepts of mixing, displacement and layer ventilation on a project-by-project basis and so highlight the potential for possible savings.
