An exhaust fan is one of the most widely used components of HVAC equipment in both commercial and industrial facility applications. An exhaust fan can effectively and efficiently pull air out of a building and replace it with fresh air when properly installed. Hospitals, schools, warehouses, manufacturing plants, foundries, bakeries, paint shops, workshops, machine shops, parking garages or commercial kitchens all use some form of ventilation and they all utilize exchange fans.
There is more to an industrial or commercial ventilation system than the installation of a huge exhaust fan. These ventilation systems bring fresh air from outdoors into the workspace and remove contaminated indoor air. Installing an industrial or commercial ventilation system is an integral part of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees.
Buying the right fan to move air throughout your workspace requires precise calculations to determine the airflow needed within the space to attain air or heat quality standards. Part of the equation is whether your application needs negative, positive or balanced pressure.
A fan's effectiveness is dictated by the configurations of the propeller pitch, size, and shape as well as the ventilation structure, (natural supply/natural exhaust, natural supply/forced exhaust, forced supply/forced exhaust and forced supply/natural exhaust).
Whether using roof exhaust fans or a wall mount fan, a properly installed system will remove contaminated air and replace it at the same rate.
