In this article we look at the operation of the most common type of fan motor – the AC induction motor.
Enhanced Design involves computer modelling of a project and selecting the best Controls philosophy, depending on the restrictions of the site and the scope of supply. In this article we look at computational fluid dynamics, Advanced Controls, and System benefits.
Understanding the basics of electric motors is vital to be able to select the right motor for the right application. In this article we look at the principles of DC and AC electricity and simple motor operation.
Car Park mechanical ventilation systems can be broadly defined into three types: Pollution Only; Smoke Clearance or Purging; and Smoke Control. In this article we look at the characteristics of each type of installation, and how in each case a Jet Thrust System provides a more effective solution than a traditional Ducted System.
Whether for simple pollution control, smoke clearance or purging, or complete smoke control, almost every car park needs ventilation. Understanding why – and the different purposes ventilation can fulfil – is key to designing and specifying the right system for each car park.
While traditional ducted ventilation systems are relatively simple to design and install, they have some inherent disadvantages. A Ductless Jet Thrust System can provide much better and more effective airflow, can be made reversible to aid smoke control, and is less likely to reduce vehicle clearance height or car park capacity.
