Manufacturing & Production Facilities
Manufacturing and production facilities with high ceilings face numerous and often changing environmental control challenges.
These challenges include adequate and safe ventilation of production areas, and cost-effective temperature control within all employee-designated areas, from work spaces to the cafeteria.
Companies must also help protect investments in capital equipment which are often susceptible to heat and contaminant issues. Proper environmental control can prolong equipment life and reduce maintenance costs.
MegaFan Technologies™ HVLS fans solve all these problems, efficiently and cost-effectively.
The physics of High Volume Low Speed fans lend themselves well to manufacturing and production environments. Year round, MegaFan HVLS fans can provide superior ventilation capabilities.
They continuously mix incoming fresh air with stale air, thus minimizing the total amount of ventilation required to achieve adequate air quality.
No other industrial fan, system, or ventilation technology does this better. The slow moving fan blades circulate massive quantities of air with a non-disruptive, but highly effective flow pattern.
As a result, airborne contaminants such as smoke are rapidly ventilated, but not at the cost of raising settled dust. As such, you can reduce the possibility of adverse effects that poor air quality can have on people, as well as equipment and products.
Beyond ventilation comes the issue of environmental comfort – an area in which MegaFan HVLS fans also excel. During hot months in facilities without A/C, slowly moving air breaks up the moisture-saturated boundary layer surrounding the body, accelerating evaporation to produce a cooling effect.
When used in conjunction with air conditioning or evaporation cooling systems, our HVLS Fans can efficiently circulate cooled air throughout the structure.
During the cold months, the basic problem is air temperature stratification. Simply put, this means since heated air rises, it gets caught in the ceiling and can typically yield well in excess of a 16° C differential from that found on the floor.
MegaFan’s HVLS fan technology circulates this trapped heat, continually forcing it to circulate down and throughout the structure without a chilling breeze. This provides a more even distribution of heat from top to bottom – especially important when employees are working at different levels within a generally open structure.
