AIR TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS
Industrial air technology systems can be classified into two categories: industrial ventilation and process air technology. A brief description of each type of system follows. More details are presented in Chapter 2.
CHAPTER I INDUSTRIAL AIR TECHNOLOGY—DESCRIPTION
Air Conditioning Systems
Air conditioning systems control air quality and thermal environment for both human occupancy and processes.
General Ventilation Systems
In general ventilation systems some indoor air parameters are controlled only partially. Target levels are usually lower than for air conditioning.
Local Ventilation Systems
Local ventilation systems are used for local controlled zones. These systems are based on local capture of contaminants.
Process Ventilation Systems
In process ventilation the target is to maintain defined conditions to ensure process performance (e. g., paper machine hoods).
2, Process Air Technology
Cleaning systems are used to remove contaminants, clean the resulting fluid flows, and collect materials before discharge of exhaust air.
Pneumatic Conveying Systems
Conveying systems are used to transport captured pollutants from processes to a collection point.
Drying systems are used to remove moisture, gases, and vapors from a product.
Safety Air Technology Systems
Air technology systems may be designed for control of smoke during fires or to reduce risks of explosions.
