Weld Fume and Heat Control During Summer Months

Press release date: January 29, 2014

Weld fume and heat control during summer months

Fabricators for heavy industries including mining, construction and engineering can cost efficiently upgrade workplace environments to maintain employee comfort and safety during spring and summer months.

Rather than add superfluous insulation product and spend more on unnecessary air conditions systems, a sensible re-engineering of air flow systems can ensure optimum conditions throughout – even if it is a 24-hour operation that includes a lot of welding and hard facing processes.

The well planned new fan driven system regulates air flow within a premises, regardless of whether it operates in one or more sections.

With hot welding activity and plasma cutting being a mainstay of many fabrication businesses, managers are keen to remain ahead of any potential heat-related problems and are turning to solutions provide the best ventilation, according to air movement specialist Fanquip.

Processes are often heat intensive, yet managers are obligated by various WorkCover Authorities around Australia to provide a comfortable and safe work environment.

Fanquip, a longstanding Australian company serving the entire industry spectrum, utilises the power of air movement with a system of strategically located fans, therefore, minimising energy consumption.

Often, a fan system for this type of need is supplied and fitted predominantly onto the roof of premises with associated safety walkways and rails to allow inspection and safe servicing.

In one installation, to control the potential for heat build-up in the manufacturing plant, Fanquip engineers installed three 1200mm-diameter vertical discharge fans to safely expel the non-toxic heat. Not only were these three items fitted at specific positions, they also were supplied with a corrugated iron integral base to match the client’s existing roof profile.

Apart from corrugated iron, Fanquip’s roof fans have various base profile options: Trimdek, Super Six, Spandek, Double Rim & Span 4, and Longspan.

Allocating of specific mounting points on a roof footprint, the internal environment and fan specialist is able to achieve an optimised air flow to create a constant breeze effect in the workplace.

With the addition of a fan-driven ventilation system to its premises, a business not only keeps ahead of potential OH&S concerns, it can optimise the internal working environment to meet Australian Standard target markets with the best equipment possible.
