Smithfield Precision Oxy Cut
Mechanical Ventilation Design
EPES were engaged by Sell and Parker to prepare a compliant ventilation solution to address poor internal air quality due to plasma and oxy cutting processes.
Our scope for this project included:
1. Assessment of ventilation issues within the Plasma and Oxy Cutting Areas
2. Identification of constraints for installation of ventilation plant and equipment
3. Prepare contract design drawings and technical specifications for the recommended solution
Location: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Client: Sell and Parker
Engagement: Design Consultant
Sectors: Buildings, Industrial
Services: Building Services, Construction and Design Consulting, Independent Reviews and Audits, Specialist Analysis
4. Ventilation calculations, equipment selections and controls
Sell and Parker required better ventilation for occupants of the space.
The source of contaminants (smoke) was associated with plasma and oxy cutting, and existing ventilation provisions were inadequate. Significantly greater air quantities were required to maintain acceptable internal air quality. Generally, the ventilation system was subject to the requirements of Australian Standards.
Analysis and Implementation
Ventilation air quantity calculations were performed based on a required air change rate for the space volume and process. Ventilation equipment and ductwork was designed to maximise pick up and minimise additional noise whilst moving the additional quantity of ventilation air. Intake air was positioned to ensure clean air was drawn into the building.
Compliant ventilation system custom designed for the space and the cutting processes being used, whilst minimising impact to current operations.
