Marine ventilation built to resist saline conditions and meet MOD naval standards
Our fans for the marine sector are built to the requirements of the majority of marine classification societies, including Lloyds, DNV, ABS and BV. Our range of fans for this sector include units for machinery and engine rooms, vehicle decks, cargo holds, occupied areas and cabins.
Fans within leisure craft must withstand extreme conditions, provide a high level of comfort and ensure safe indoor air quality. Effective boat ventilation circulates air and equalises humidity levels to discourage mould, mildew, dry rot and foul odours thereby preventing the resultant damage to fixtures and fittings.
Cruise Ships need ventilation and heating systems that can adapt to the changes in temperature and humidity that these ships go through. There is also a variety of large open spaces, small cabin rooms, commercial kitchens and open decks that need to be considered when designing the system.
Cargo and Container Holds
With our capability of building diverse, bespoke fans, we are able to meet the differing demands of the overall cargo hold ventilation system in order to ensure efficient ventilation and good environmental care for both cargo and crew. When carrying perishable goods on sea, it is essential that the ventilation system provides adequate temperature control in the holds and replacement air to reduce and remove CO2, vitiated air and other gases.
Engine and Machinery Rooms
In addition to the engine room, machinery rooms incorporating heat generating equipment, such as desalinators and steering gear, need to be ventilated and cooled. Our axial fans can be supplied to draw supply air in through cowls at deck level and distribute it through ductwork before it is extracted by fans via the ship’s funnel and other ventilation apertures.
Vehicle decks require supply and extract fans designed to cope with the increased levels of pollution present during loading and off-loading. To stop the build-up of pollutants during transit they must also provide supply air to dilute and then extract potentially dangerous gases and fumes.
