When designing the engineering communications of the production workshop, the priority is to reduce the cost of heating and ventilation while ensuring their reliable operation. An air solar collector in an industrial building contributes to these goals and provides a number of other benefits.
A solar collector is an autonomous ventilation or heating equipment powered by solar energy. The general principle of operation of the collectors is as follows: the sun’s rays fall on the panel and heat the fresh air coming from the street. When the air masses warm up, the fan blows them into the production room. Due to the difference in temperature and pressure, the air is evenly distributed throughout the workshop and then removed through ventilation hatches and shafts, natural gaps.
Depending on the area of the premises and the tasks facing the company, select models of solar collectors for industrial premises of various capacities.
Air solar collector for industrial space heating
With the help of an air solar collector in an industrial building, the following heating tasks are solved:
- maintaining a positive temperature in the workshop;
- prevention of freezing of the building in the autumn-winter period;
- achievement of the temperature indicators required by the Labor Code of the Russian Federation in the working premises.
Warm air is evenly distributed throughout the room, quickly heating the floor and walls. It takes a minimum time to reach a comfortable temperature for a person. Due to the active movement of air masses, the formation of “cold pockets” is excluded, the room is completely warmed up, regardless of the area and geometry.
Air solar collector for industrial ventilation
If a solar collector is installed in an industrial building as ventilation equipment, it is used for other tasks. The collector allows:
- maintain a healthy indoor climate all year round, regardless of weather conditions;
- ensure the flow of fresh air into the workshop at the rate of at least 30 m3 / h for each employee;
- promptly remove contaminated exhaust air masses: respiratory products, technical gases generated in production;
- eliminate excessive air humidity and prevent condensate from settling on the walls and ceiling.
The installation of an air solar collector for ventilation of an industrial premises serves to maintain the hygienic parameters of the air necessary for the organization of the working process.
Advantages of solar collectors for industrial premises
The equipment runs on renewable solar energy, and does not require a connection to the power grid. It does not create additional electricity consumption during the heating period, contributing to the reduction of bills from energy sales companies. The device is suitable for use on remote non-electrified objects.
Solar collectors are installed at factories in the USA, Canada, Russia and the CIS. They make it easy to create efficient heating and ventilation at a minimal cost. And it’s not just about reducing energy consumption: the equipment itself is cheap compared to other industrial ventilation solutions. An air solar collector in an industrial building does not require installation and commissioning costs.
