Industrial HVAC Systems For All Applications
Industrial HVAC provide approximately thirty percent of the energy used by manufacturing companies and are common for both small companies and also homes. A good air system design will cool a building and reduce energy consumption, improve air quality, and is safe for the environment.
The term HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. An HVAC system for an industrial setting can have a variety of different combinations of heating and cooling equipment and designs.
Industrial type systems might include a boiler, furnace, heat pump, rooftop unit, or electric heat. Common cooling systems such as rooftop units, heat pumps, chillers, and basic air conditioning units.

Industrial HVAC setup and design varies depending upon the design of the HVAC system. For this reason, installation must always be done by an industrial a/c company. The system provider must be familiar with system designs and industrial settings. Some HVAC layouts are a lot more complex while others simpler. A simple HVAC system is often applied for a single zone in an industrial plant. Modifications are performed to create an efficient system for multi-plants and large size areas.
Basic Industrial HVAC System
In a basic industrial HVAC system, air is brought in from an air intake located on the top or side of the building. The air is pushed through a damper by atmospheric pressure that controls just how much air is really taken in. Air which has already run through the system is mixed with the outside air. That air mixture is then run through a filter that removes large particles such as dust, leaves, and bugs. A second filter takes care of smaller particles just before the air goes through a fan. Air leaves the fan and is heated or else cooled by coils. A drain pan collects any condensation from the coils and the air is transmitted through the duct work in order to cool or heat the structure. It is then returned by air registers to become combined with new air or sent out of the building.
Three Main Types of Air Conditioners
Three main types of air conditioners are frequently used in commercial HVAC installation. An industrial HVAC system has additional primary functions whereas a normal air conditioner’s main job is to ensure a space is comfortable.
Direct Expansion Coolers
Direct expansion coolers consist of three components consisting of window units, heat pumps, and packaged units. Systems may be located on the rooftop and air is cooled when it passes over the coils.
Chilled water Systems
Chilled water systems contain a refrigeration machine which cools water that is used by a coil to cool the air.
Evaporative coolers combine hot air with a damp surface to eliminate heat in dry climates. This activity causes the moisture to evaporate and reduce air temperature.
Industrial HVAC Systems Can be Complex
HVAC systems for an industrial environment can become very complex and it is very important to understand what is required before installation. Employing an industrial air conditioning company that has experience in these types of setups is very valuable. You want to be assured that you get a top quality installation. A poor installation can result in higher energy costs, poor air quality, and insufficient working conditions. These types of problems can reduce productivity and make daily operations next to impossible in some cases.
