Industrial Air Conditioning Systems

With the rising temperatures and extreme heat, regulation of temperature whether at home, office or industries is the need of the hour. 

Air conditioners control air movement,Guest Posting filtration, and humidity of the atmospheric environment. One of the biggest dampeners on individual productivity and electronic equipment is the generation of heat.

This excessive heat can harm the machinery of the establishment and also affect personal productivity. Therefore, it becomes pertinent that such temperatures should be regulated. With the advent of technology, the most plausible solution is a replacement of heat with cooler air. The only means of achieving this is installing an air conditioning.

The largest commercial building, manufacturing unit, factories, etc., are equipped with industrial air conditioners to ease the excessive heat and problems connected with overheating of electronic equipment such as computers, electronic testing instruments, and precision electronic manufacturing equipment.

For the smooth operations of the establishment, it is important that the temperatures also regulate the personal comfort of the employees or individuals working around such machinery are crucial.

The size and capacity of industrial air conditioning equipment are, obviously dependent on the size and design of the facility to be cooled. Industrial conditioning provides a process which requires a strictly controlled of the atmosphere.

The air conditioning units are ductless, split system and consist of fans, compressors, condensers, etc. Another important part of the air conditioning units is fan coil system. A chiller fan coil system is standard in HVAC systems found in industrial systems.

The precise coiling fan units consist of ducts and control the temperature. Due to their flexibility, the fan coil unit installation and fan coil unit maintenance is simpler and economical. They also offer fewer noise levels.

There are various types of such industrial air conditioners; some of which discussed below:

Multi-Zone Air Conditioner

In this system, the unit where divided into different zones and the temperatures switched are controlled separately. The benefits of an industrial unit are that there are separate areas which require that the temperature is regulated independently vis-à-vis a constant temperature throughout the establishment.

In this system, there are electronic baffles which open and close the flow from a single central unit. It gives the unit ability to adjust and maintain the temperature of different areas independently. The room devoted to the working individuals need not demand and consume the same energy and temperature as required in a chamber where the machinery are kept. These are possible as each area equipped with its thermostat which can regulate the desired temperature.

It might seem to be a complex system rather it saves energy and cost efficient as it works as per the requirement of each area of the establishment. It comes with modern amenities and thus, user-friendly and provides the comfort of being used from anywhere.

Though it has various advantages, it would not hurt us to know that it is more expensive as more equipment is required and a complex duct system has to remain installed. It is more prone to breakdown as it works on electronic baffles which direct the airflow to and from various zones in a given unit.

Industrial Chillers

Industrial chillers are essentially refrigeration systems that provide cooling or act as dehumidifiers in an industry and commercial buildings. Industrial chillers are a complete system which includes a chiller unit, condenser, and a pump station.

The internal tank helps in maintaining cold water temperature and prevents a high temperature. The chiller can use and vapor compression for cooling. When you choose an industrial chiller, features like cost, power source, IP rating, cooling capacity needs to for consideration.

As the chillers work at peak efficiency, they need maintenance on regular basis. Maintenance done on a regular basis will help the chiller to perform at an optimized level. It has a comparatively low cost of installation as compared to other types of air conditioners.

Rooftop Industrial air conditioners

Although central air conditions are a popular choice, rooftop air conditioners are for commercial purposes which also gained lots of popularity. Rooftop air conditioners will have all the units inside the premises. They are attached to the top of your industrial facility and then routed through ducts.

There are several advantages to a rooftop AC unit. As all the moving parts are all together, if anything breaks down it is easy to repair the unit. These units can cool large spaces effectively.

Moreover, they don't require any modifications. Before investing in a rooftop unit, do consider the weight. Although there is no substantial increase in the weight, you need to determine how much weight the roof can support.

For a commercial facility, the rooms are often flat and are ideal for those rooftop Industrial air conditioners. The only downside is the installation cost can be quite high.

Central Air conditioners

Central air conditioners can cool through a duct system. The tubes carry fresh air from the air conditioner to the other parts of the building. They are more efficient than room air conditioners and very convenient to operate.

The most common are the split system which has a condenser and a fan and coil system. The efficiency of central air conditioners implies checking in seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER).
