If you need Industrial Ventilation, Laboratory Ventilation, and Air Contaminant Control services to control emissions from industrial sites and laboratories for the protection of the environment and workers discussed in this information page call us at 1-800-344-4414 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and a free estimate.
Well designed industrial ventilation is the most effective method of controlling emissions from an industrial process or laboratory activity. The idea is to capture the contaminant before it ever gets into the workroom or lab’s air space. Whether the industrial process involves plating, welding, lab experiments, grinding, packaging, or blending, a local exhaust ventilation system is generally the most effective means of controlling emissions and protecting worker health.
In general, air contaminants include dusts, chemicals, gases, extreme temperatures, odor, or high or low humidity. We have over 40 years of experience in industrial ventilation, developing and testing/sampling methods of controlling emissions and contaminants from industrial sites and laboratories.
Our industrial ventilation services include:
Industrial Ventilation Design
We design control industrial ventilation systems to include piping sizes, materials, fans, and filtration/control systems so that the plans can be given to a sheet metal contractor or HVAC company to fabricate and install.
New Ventilation System Review
Prior to installation, we review the system’s plans to determine if they will fulfill the air contaminant control needs of the operator.
Air Flow Measurements
We have the ability to measure airflow, air volume and air changes per hour (ACH) for industrial and commercial buildings. This can be done by direct measurement of airflow and air volume for the general ventilation in buildings. This can also be achieved by using tracer gas measurements of ventilation using sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas.
Local exhaust ventilation for contaminant control or laboratory hoods can be measured using direct reading instruments. We can determine the adequacy of the capture velocity and total air volume. If the airflow is not adequate to effectively capture the air contaminant can suggest—or design a system that can achieve effective air contaminant control for worker protection, general air quality, and OSHA Compliance.
Also note that our industrial hygienists can sample the working environment for specific chemicals also with the objective of protecting workers and achieving OSHA Compliance.
Air Permits and Annual Reports
We determine if installation or operating emission permits are required and assist in their submission. Each state generally has its own air emission regulations and permit application process. We have worked with many state agencies to support our clients in permit applications and annual reports. More details on our air emissions permitting services are found here.
