SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Major LEV systems up-grade

CLIENT’S REQUIREMENTS

Following a detailed independent survey by consulting engineers, it was found that many of the existing research laboratory LEV systems would benefit from improvements in the form of up-grades. In addition, requirements were identified for entirely new LEV systems in several other areas.

MULTI-FAN SYSTEMS SOLUTION

Working in conjunction with the consulting engineers and the University, Multi-Fan Systems carried out detailed site surveys and discussions to determine the most effective solutions, particularly with respect to the way operators needed to interact and access their equipment.

The system pictured is one of a total of twelve LEV systems that were either up-graded or installed as new. This particular system extracts fumes that are continually emitted from the tops of furnaces - during an operating cycle of several hours. Sliding curtains allow easy access to the oven doors.
