VentilationUSA: SOLUTIONS FOR A HEALTHIER MANUFACTURING ENVIRONMENT
VentilationUSA LLC began its operative journey in 2002. The company was founded by owner/operator Richard Egan, who had years of service to the industry prior to starting his own business as a means to further his desire to offer exemplary ventilation solutions with bolstered customer service.
Egan and the Ventilation USA team have long prided themselves on customizing solutions for their customer base by strategically examining the facility in question and providing an exact “cure” for whatever ails the particular environment they’re servicing. When it comes to servicing the air around a given facility, there’s no single “out of the box” solution in Ventilation USA’s mind – you have to be cognizant of what’s going on and understand all the working variables of a situation prior to diagnosis, and the process of the installation.
If it’s not clear in the name, VentilationUSA LLC is a ventilation company based in Manchester, New Hampshire. They specialize in technical designs and solutions for commercial and industrial ventilation, serving customers across the United States – with a keen focus on those in the Northeast. They’re known for providing expert industrial solutions to businesses, specializing in all aspects of commercial and industrial ventilation applications designed to meet strict air quality standards, while working within the existing infrastructure. And, as it stands, manufacturer facility owners have never looked so closely into their ventilation environment as they are now with the spread of COVID.
Fresh, clean air can help combat the spread of infectious disease, and proper ventilation aides in pulling the bad out, and keeping the good in.
In short, VentilationUSA is a commercial ventilation contractor who design solutions for industrial ventilation issues including:
- Fresh Air make-up systems
- Air-to-air heat exchangers
- Heat recovery systems
- Destratification fans
- Air filtration
- Air de-stratification
- Air rotation
- Industrial shop ventilation systems
- Removal of welding smoke, humidity, smoke, carbon monoxide, haze, negative air pressure, stale air, etc.
- And so much more…
For manufacturing facilities, VentilationUSA has placed a focus on four areas of basic solution sets that are the general areas of “pain” manufacturers might experience and look to VentilationUSA to remediate in their respective facilities.
1. Keep the heat
The heat exchange solution is positioned to bring in fresh air while exchanging the heat at the same time. This is an energy efficient way to take the cold outside while avoiding pumping it directly inside. This solution handles roughly 1,500 CFM. It utilizes unique delivery methods that can deliver fresh air via direct tubing.
a. Heat exchange
b. Energy efficient
c. Exchanges air outside while retaining the heat d. Brings fresh air in
e. Can be used in most applications
2. Ambient air filtration systems
This ambient air filtration system will create the ideal airflow pattern for bringing the heat on the ceiling to the floor level.
a. Displacement ventilation
b. Creates the perfect air movement pattern
c. Captures and filters weld smoke as it naturally rises to the ceiling
d. Distributes the clean filtered air to the floor level to pressurize the lower half of the shop
e. Air movement pattern forces all the weld smoke to stay at the ceiling to be filtered
3. Quietaire ventilation system
This system brings in fresh air directly from the outside in a high CFM volume. It can then be distributed throughout the shop, creating a clean air environment. It’s also great for summer cooling of large spaces.
a. Cost effective
b. High volume solution c. Brings fresh air in
d. Summer cooling
Combination of numbers 1 & 2 (keeping the heat and release the benefits of ambient air filtration)
There are times when a combination of systems will work together to create the ideal ventilation solution for a manufacturing facility. This is why VentilationUSA will work with you to design the perfectly balanced system that saves energy, is cost effective, and creates the safest air to breath while staff are busy on the floor producing.
a. Install a Keep The Heat System to replace half the air with fresh new air. This solves half of the existing air problem by bringing in fresh air from the outside.
b. Combine that with Ambient Filtration System to scrub the other half of the air in the building making the air clean.
It’s hot as heck outside right now, and, as such, it can get even hotter in manufacturing facilities that haven’t invested in a decent cooling and ventilation environment. Consider the following questions:
Does your facility lack fresh air?
Do you have process heat issues?
Are you experiencing hot and cold areas, curious fumes or odors, etc.?
Are you dealing with negative pressure, and cold drafts?
Stale, stagnant air issues cropping up?
VentilationUSA has been busy designing and installing high velocity fresh air intake systems that keep the facility safe, breathable, and free of dangerous pathogens and viral germs.
With that in mind, as of late, as manufacturing facilities get back up to full speed following the time of pandemic we’ve all collectively experienced, there’s been a real effort to maximize air quality in industrial plants to bolster the health of shop floor workers and staff. VentilationUSA has been very actively engaged in helping manufacturing clients become proactive with their filtration efforts based on the built up fear of the spread of virus and other dangerous bacteria’s that effect human health.
The main recommendation VentilationUSA has been offering up is to increase the supply of fresh air in all buildings while exhausting the stale air with anything else that can enhance the air quality like installing better filters on HVAC systems or air purifiers. The latest technology VentilationUSA has been initiating throughout manufacturing facilities is the GPS-DM48-AC (GPS) duct mounted auto-cleaning needlepoint bipolar ionization system (that’s a mouthful, we know…) This GPS technology is a proactive approach for lessening the exposure to:
- Toxic fumes
- And other harmful airborne pathogens…
THE BENEFITS OF THE GPS SYSTEM INCLUDE:
- Particle reduction and smoke control
- Odor neutralization by eradicating VOSs
- Pathogens destroyed (bacteria, viruses, mold)
- Energy savings of 30% due to the reduction in outdoor air intake by up to 75%
In short, they’re very excited about this new ionization system and are on the frontlines of combatting environmental health hazards that are under the magnifying glass in our current pandemic driven climate. Since their inception in 2002, VentilationUSA has worked tirelessly to help promote better working conditions in manufacturing facilities far and wide, and are proud to do their small part in pushing industry forward.
VentilationUSA’s goal is to create the best air for a healthier work environment in your shop utilizing proven solutions fit for your unique situation by reducing heat fatigue, unhealthy air quality, negative pressure, cold drafts, and more. The health of your shop employees should be at the top of the list of important issues for any shop owner, making sure your team is breathing the highest quality air, which, in turn, can lead to increased worker productivity and long term success for the company, as well as the long term health of those exposed to the various toxins created through the actual act of manufacturing production. And, that notion has never been under the microscope more than it is now with all the COVID talk (and germs) going around. We all know, life in a machine shop is not the cleanest line of work. Luckily, there are effective solutions for any existing or potential problem as it relates to your direct manufacturing environment.
So whether you’re in the market for heating, cooling, cleaner air quality, energy saving options, and/or all of the above, VentilationUSA is a proven, sought after partner.
