AIRMAX's unique fabric ducting material provides low-cost, lightweight ducting systems for air distribution and HVAC applications.
HVAC Contractors can earn more bids and save their customers $$$$ with the use of these flexible, lightweight, fire retardant polyolefin ducts. AIRMAX fabric ducting can be used to distribute cool a/c air directly at employees and work areas. It can be used in conjunction with air conditioners, dust collectors, blowers- anywhere air needs to be distributed.
Here's how AIRMAX works in a typical winter application in a facility with fume, stratification, negative pressure, draft & stagnation problems:
- Fumes are exhausted at the floor level.
- Cool make-up air is brought in at ceiling height and dispersed evenly over a long path through holes punched in the tube at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock. (Engineering results determine number of holes, size and exact locations.) More air is brought in than is exhausted, creating a slight positive pressure.
- Wasted stratified heat is used to preheat the cool make-up air. A side benefit is the dramatically reduced amount of energy required to heat your plant. AIRMAX evens the temperature from floor to ceiling and reduces heat loss through the roof.
- Air flow is now from the ceiling to the floor, trapping fumes at floor level and forcing them down and toward the production exhausts, keeping heated air where it's needed. The building is now at a positive pressure, eliminating drafts, and reducing worker discomfort, complaints and illness.
