The importance of clean uncontaminated air in the processes of industrial work environment is well known. Modern industry with its complexity of operations and processes uses an increasing number of chemical compounds and substances, many of which are highly toxic. The use of these materials may result in particulates, gases, vapours, and mists in the workroom air in concentrations that exceed safe levels. Heat and noise stress can also result in usage or uncomfortable work environments. Effective, well-designed ventilation offers a solution to these problems where workers’ protection and safety are paramount.
Exhaust ventilation systems are used to remove the contaminants generated by an operation to maintain a healthy work environment.
General exhaust systems can be used for heat control and removal of contaminants generated in space by flushing out a given space with large quantities of air. Contaminated air is usually discharged into the atmosphere.
Local ventilation, dust and fume extraction systems operate on the principle of capturing a contaminant at or near its source. It is the preferred method of control because it is more effective and the smaller exhaust flow rate results in lower heating costs compared to high flow rate general exhaust requirements.
Ventilation systems are comprised of:
The purpose of the hood is to collect the contaminant at the source. The ducting system transports the contaminated air to the filter if required, or to the fan. If a filter is required, the contaminant is removed from the air stream.
The fan must overcome all the losses due to friction, hood entry, bends and fittings while producing the intended flow rate. The duct on the fan outlet usual discharges the ait to the atmosphere.
Airtight make high quality products that are very simple to use. Having dealt with Airtight for a number of years I can certainly say the customer service from Glenn Nicholls and his team is excellent and they are very reliable. I Have recommended Airtight to other people and will continue to do so as they provide a very good service at fair price.
When we required the latest technology for our new plant in Mount Gambier, Glenn was able to not only supply the material but organise his competent crew to install the extractor on site during the Covid shutdown when we were experiencing very tight deadlines. We can highly recommend Glenn and his knowledgeable team.
Great products!!!! Love working with this team. Very efficient and reliable. In particular ….. Glenn Nicholls 🙂
Cheers from the team at Portsch Classic Furniture, Hendon SA 5014.
Good old fashioned reliable service. Glenn is always willing to go the extra mile to help, and you also get a top bloke thrown into the deal for good measure.
Nothing but good feedback for this company, Glenn Nichols runs a great operation with great service. The 3HG dust extraction system has been excellent, wouldn’t look elsewhere!
UWE Hay worked with Airtight Solutions at our export facility in Southern New South Wales for the installation of a fully integrated dust extraction system. The staff and leadership at the business were of the highest calibre and the professional approach was felt from the initial phone interaction to the onsite visit, to the cost effective quote of their fully customised solution and installation of the system within our facility. Prior to selecting Airtight Solutions our company discussed our requirements with several company’s however the outcome was there was only one choice. Airtight Solutions provided a highly professional package and after sales service and we would recommend their systems to any other businesses in the agricultural industry with similar requirements.
When I upgraded my underperforming cartridge dust collector, Airtight Solutions came highly recommended. My expectations were naturally high, but the system is everything they said it would be and the performance difference is unbelievable!
Airtight delivered a quality job and timely with minimal disruptions. The process was made easy and the communication was open and honest. I would recommend Airtight to anyone.
Glenn and his team have been consistently quick to respond with solid advice and service. Very happy with their support.
Very professional and easy to deal with. Great products and great service.
