Air quality in production and industrial halls
The Frischluftmanager by actoVent – your solution for clean air in production and industrial halls
The challenge of production and industrial halls
Modern production and industrial halls must not only be designed to be functional and safe, but also meet the requirements for good air quality. Good air quality not only contributes to the well-being of employees, but also to the prevention of health risks from inhaled pollutants.
The following challenges are of central importance:
- Fine dust pollution from production, abrasion from machines and dust pollution from packaging materials can have a negative impact on air quality in the halls.
- Varying utilization of the halls and changing production processes lead to varying CO2 and VOC concentrations, which has unpleasant and sometimes negative effects on air quality.
- In addition, operators of production and industrial halls face major challenges in operating the halls in an energy- and cost-efficient manner while ensuring good air quality for their employees and production due to the varying utilization rates of the buildings .
From the planning stage to the daily use of a hall, there are therefore major differences that must be constantly monitored and adjusted.
This is exactly where the Frischluftmanager comes in: We measure the current air quality in the production and industrial halls and help the operators to optimize the complete process around clean air in a resource-saving way.
Thanks to the continuous monitoring of the air quality of the building, the Frischluftmanager can control, optimize and automate the process around clean air.
Our “plug-and-play” sensors make retrofitting at the customer’s premises simple and straightforward.
We are proud to help our customers reduce their energy costs while ensuring good air quality for their employees.
The innovative approach of bringing all parties involved in the clean air process onto one platform ensures an optimal, permanent and independent solution in the interests of hall operators.
Successful implementation of the fresh air manager in production and industrial halls
A successful example is shown by the planning office Krebser and Freyler. One of their customers, an international supplier of measurement equipment, services and solutions for industrial process engineering, wanted to improve energy efficiency in one of their 2000 m2 production halls without compromising air quality.
Due to the current energy situation, the air quality in the production hall should be examined. Thanks to the plug-and-play capability of the sensors in the Frischluftmanager, retrofitting the hall with additional sensors was quick and easy. As a result, the volume flow of the ventilation system was continuously reduced and the air quality was controlled at the same time. Various air pollutants such as particulate matter, airborne chemicals, radon, and carbon dioxide were monitored.
The result was impressive. With the help of the fresh air manager, the volume flow of the ventilation unit could be reduced by over 11% , resultingin an annual energy saving of 152 MWh/a – without causing a noticeable difference in air quality.
Continuous monitoring also ensures that the required air quality is provided in the future with optimized volume flow and energy consumption.
