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.
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.
The AHU manages the ventilation of the interior with outside air, along with the following additional tasks:
Energy efficiency is the primary goal of an air handling unit, and the European Ecodesign Regulation 1235/2014 has made it compulsory since 2016.
By having heat recovery units, the AHU lowers the amount of energy needed for air conditioning since the exchanger mixes internal and outdoor air, the temperature contrast when the air reaches the coil is lower and therefore lowers both the climatic contribution and energy consumption.
The fans can operate in accordance with the required flow rate thanks to the equipment's variable regulation, which lowers consumption.
The three main differences are;

A new international standard for the air filtration sector, ISO 16890, was released by the International Organization for Standardization in December 2016. This new Standard will result in better filter performance, improved indoor air quality (IAQ), and stronger protection of human health as it is more thorough than both the previous EN 779 and the Ashrae 52.2.
