Industrial Ventilation: 3 Areas Where People Go Wrong

Commercial Properties

Commercial PropertiesJust like in residential and commercial properties, industrial spaces need proper ventilation, too. As a matter of fact, there are times when ventilation matters more in an industrial setting than it does elsewhere. Factories and farms, for instance, need consistent and decent ventilation if they are to maintain their daily efficiency.

But as always, not everyone gets this right. Many businesses are prone to committing ventilation mistakes that are rather basic. To help address this concern, it is important to identify these problem areas, which are:


First of all, you have to pay attention to the placement of your fans and vents. Regardless of the size of the space, where you put your machines is something that should be noted right off the bat. You have to know where you should bring the air – and, consequently, where the dust and air would exit. It’s important to factor in the environment in a particular location as well. There are areas where wet dust collectors like are necessary, while others would do just fine with typical ventilation equipment.


This deserves a subheading of its own because many tend to neglect it: the openings in a space. Yes, ventilation is meant to cycle air within a confined area, but it is important to draw in and expel some air outside, too.

As such, it is important to have an adequate number of vent doors that are opened and unlatched. The openings should neither be too tight nor too wide. It has to be just enough to maintain the pressure levels in the space.


Speaking of, that is the last common mistake in industrial ventilation: pressure. The static pressure should be just right. Both cold and warm air must be at decent levels.

Correcting the mistakes in industrial ventilation begins with knowing what these blunders are. Keep your facilities well-ventilated by making sure you are not committing these errors.
