Industrial Environmental Controls
Solutions for a Variety of Industrial Facilities
Mention "industrial facilities" and the first thought that comes to mind is probably manufacturing or production facilities. The term more broadly covers a range of other types of facilities, including warehouses and distribution centers, processing plants, repair and service shops, and more.
Regardless of the purpose of the facility, it's possible to reduce energy use and improve the environment through the use of appropriate control systems. And given the scale of many industrial facilities, the potential energy cost savings can be significant. Compared to commercial facilities, there are additional considerations when selecting systems and components for an environmental control system. The volume of the spaces is typically larger, temperature variations can be greater, and air quality a greater concern.
Safety and Comfort
In commercial facilities, maintaining a comfortable environment is typically the primary goal. In most industrial facilities, comfort is also a key focus. Employees are more focused and productive when they aren't distracted by uncomfortable temperatures. But of equal or greater concern in industrial applications, particularly manufacturing and processing facilities, are safety concerns.
Gas detection systems, incorporated in your existing HVAC system, can detect potentially harmful -- or even deadly -- gasses. Once detected, your system can be programmed to simply sound an alarm or to adjust air flow to evacuate dangerous gasses and/or increase the flow of fresh, safe air.
