Without adequate industrial ventilation in your facility, you are quite literally doing production in a volatile powder keg.

Risks of Poor Ventilation

  • Exposing employees to harmful gases and debris through poor industrial ventilation can be fatal. When these toxins and contaminants are allowed to build up either within a mechanical system or in the facility itself, they produce a combustible risk, even with the smallest electrical spark.
  • Poor industrial ventilation can be harmful to your equipment. Industrial HVAC system components not only require adequate airflow in to operate efficiently, they also must have viable exhaust to run as intended. Failure to properly ventilate can be dangerous and can lead to increased wear and tear, resulting in an early end of life/increased repairs for expensive equipment.
  • You might be violating workplace safety codes without implementing adequate industrial ventilation practices in your facility. If that’s the case, you are putting your equipment, personnel, and building at an unnecessary risk.

Implementing Proper Industrial Ventilation Practices

  • Proper industrial ventilation involves implementing a multi-faceted plan. Industrial ducting is used to send gas, air and debris to the proper outlets, while industrial dampers are used to invigorate airflow.
  • Your facility needs to have adequate natural ventilation but also proactive ventilation.

Reliable heating and cooling is not only important for the comfort of employees, it’s also critical to the overall quality of the products being produced in industrial settings. Capacity, efficiency and safety should be the primary considerations in your heating and air component decision-making.

Industrial heating and air is often complicated because of the size of a facility and of the safety requirements the HVAC system must meet. For example, electrical rooms filled with large power supplies and VFD controls give off high heat and require cooling to keep plants running.


  • One of the main considerations when upgrading industrial heating and air components is where they are going to be housed. Some equipment and machinery may need to be operated at certain temperatures.
  • Many commercial and industrial buildings opt for rooftop ventilation systems to save room and for easy access. However, separated units are also an option.
  • Capacity requirements should also be considered. Unit requirements are based on application and potential available sources. For example, gas is required for direct-fired or indirect units. Hydronic is another option for hot water, steam or glycol. Cooling choices can range from evaporative or chilled water, electric, and more.
  • Selecting the proper industrial HVAC system is one of the most important decisions your company will make. If the wrong model is installed, you might be paying exorbitantly high utility bills while creating an unsafe work environment and risking damage to your equipment and products.

While your industrial ductwork is critically important for transferring air throughout a facility, it’s the industrial dampers that control this airflow. When a damper opens, it delivers the important airflow needed for the design parameters of the system.


  • Industrial dampers are critical safety devices. They are outfitted as backdraft or pressure relief devices in restaurant and manufacturing applications. In short, dampers deliver air when needed but they can also be used to prevent air from going in the wrong direction.
  • Dampers are a key component to the system because they provide balancing to ensure optimum efficiency. For example, dampers can control airflow in HVAC zoning systems. Your facility can be divided into several zones and groups that can each be set to different temperatures or humidity specifications. The damper controls the airflow to these zones, lessening the load on your industrial HVAC system in the process.


Industrial dampers typically fulfill one of these main needs:

  • Air Control – Control airflow in a facility and provide emergency shutoff in HVAC and industrial process systems.
  • Backdraft and Pressure Relief – Dampers that allow airflow in one direction only. These devices prevent backflow but allow relief when needed.
  • Blast – Heavy duty devices that form a barrier against blasts or drastic pressure changes.

Ducting serves as a transport system for heated and cooled air, as well as the removal of dust and debris. Industrial ducting can also serve as a valuable exhaust resource for key machinery.

Industrial ducting is vital to your facility because it often needs to stand up to the demands of heavy-duty airflow. Besides causing equipment damage, faulty ducting can also be a source of significant energy loss in your plant HVAC system.


  • Ducting specifics begin with the material used for construction. Depending on your application needs, the most common types of industrial duct construction are galvanized steel, stainless steel and carbon steel.
  • Another major part of industrial ducting is determining the diameter or opening size needed.
  • Your airflow requirements will dictate how large an opening the industrial ductwork must accommodate.
  • A final consideration for industrial ducting is fittings, flanges and other joining methods. Sometimes the ducting in a facility must navigate through complicated openings which necessitates the use of specialty joining applications.

System Design, Manufacturing & Installation

The success of upgrading or implementing a dust control strategy in any facility starts with an efficient design, followed by craftsman-quality fabrication and expert installation, all the while recognizing that ‘the devil’s in the details’.

Dust Control System Assessments

Simply having a dust collection system installed is not enough to ensure a safe and efficient facility forever. Dust collection system assessments are recommended to ensure your system and its components are working as intended

Service Repairs & Rebuilds

Implementing dust control in your facility should include regular maintenance and inspections to ensure less wear and tear on your system.
