Industrial Heating, Cooling, Air Conditioning and Ventilation (Industrial HVAC Systems)
Manufacturing processes can often result in a large build-up of heat, sometimes in excess of what is practical for workers to efficiently or safely work in. Because of this, industrial HVACs are essential systems for industries of all sizes and services. integratedAIR Systems has installed industrial HVAC systems for clients in various industries, implementing high-standard bespoke units with dedicated customer service and specialist knowledge; proving time and time again that we are the provider of choice.
By making integratedAIR Systems your industrial HVAC provider, your system will not only cool down high temperature areas, but reuse the useful energy generated in other areas of the building, such as office spaces. As well as providing a safe workplace, this ensures that your business will use less energy, saving money and crucially reducing your environmental impact.
How do Industrial HVAC Control Systems Work?
Factory HVAC systems can be used in any facility that needs warming up or cooling down, or where air changes and improved air flow is required.
Typically, we mount one or multiple Air Handling Unit’s (AHU) at an elevated position within your facility. These units, coupled with a ducting system, processes the air and distributes it to air vents, strategically positioned throughout the facility. An additional benefit of a balanced system is maintaining a positive pressure within the building envelope to reduce the risk of contamination from outside airflow into the facility when processes exhaust internal, ambient air to atmosphere. Without making up the air the internal spaces become negatively pressurised.
We also offer industrial sized roof exhaust fans which, coupled with an air input system, are an effective solution to a multitude of issues, such as cooling during summer and air flow problems.
If your workplace suffers from more extreme heat build-up, we can provide evaporative and direct expansion (DX– Refrigerant) air cooling systems to rapidly cool hot air, ensuring safety and comfort for your employees.
What are the Applications of Industrial HVAC Control Systems?
There is no ‘standard’ HVAC control system. Every business will have its own issues with heat, cold and ventilation, and every project we undertake has its own complex set of variables, from the numbers of staff to the heat generated by machinery; from the type of building to the temperature sensitivity of the processes that take place within it.
integratedAIR Systems takes all of these factors into account to create factory HVAC control systems which are tailored to your specific requirements. We are proud to be a trusted industrial HVAC solutions partner for industry-leading companies such as Ball Packaging, Rexam, DS Smith, De La Rue, and Craftec. We can do the same for you – get in touch today!

Some factory spaces will need heating in the winter – this can be done with a system such as a summer-winter diverter. We can also design systems to disperse the heat created from machine processes and distribute it to other areas of the factory, with ventilation built-in the system to help remove heat from areas in warmer months.
Make-up Air Systems
This system’s sole purpose is to “make up” the air in your interior space that has been taken out of the production area through process exhausts. Whereas low-level temperature sensors govern the ventilation system operation, the Make-Up Air Systems operates in line with the many different exhausts emitted in your factory.
Signals from the various processes dictate the Make-Up Air Systems running parameters. This process means that when process exhausts stop and start, the system is triggered and will adapt to maintain the same overpressure constantly.
We can install water to air heating coils within the air stream so hot water from energy recovery can pre-heat the Make-Up Air for the colder months, meaning your system will run all year long.
During the summer, heat cannot escape a plant or factory as it does in the winter. Temperatures can rise due to heat-generating production lines, often making the work environment unbearable. Our industrial ventilation systems help remove the hot air and circulate cooler air at a lower level, causing temperatures to drop to a comfortable level. Our systems can also reuse heat to warm up other building areas, making your systems use less energy and save you money.
Some industrial processes may require industrial air conditioning of a whole factory, for which we can design a system for your requirements. However, usually we wouldn’t encourage air conditioning an entire factory as it is costly, especially as there tends to be more efficient and ecological roots depending on your needs.
For systems that create a lot of heat, we can install prospect screens around the machinery to pump in cool air to that specific area.
Spot cooling is an excellent substitute for air conditioning as you can target specific areas to cool or heat. Each spot cooling system is installed using a local-ducted evaporator coil and piped to outside VFD condensers, typically situated on the roof. In the summer, temperatures with factories can rise to uncomfortable levels. If we spot cool operator areas, the work environment can maintain a safe temperature for employees. When necessary, this process can be reversed to warm up work areas during the winter.
Benefits of a tailored HVAC System
Temperature control systems are important in meeting health and safety obligations, as well as saving you time and money in the long run:
• Removes heat from manufacturing processes
• Clean and fresh air available throughout the production facility
• Recycles heat from one point to another, such as production to office areas
• Lowers utility costs
• Equalises temperatures
• Increased productivity
• Comfortable and pleasant working environments
