Target Molecules

Project Brief

To remove existing perished and corroded ventilation equipment, and re-design, manufacture & install a Ventilation system to remove the fumes from the chemical processes within 4 X Fume Cabinets.

Extraction

Having had their previous extraction system in place for around 8 years, the galvanised steel ductwork connections and steel extract fans had become corroded from the constant chemical fumes extracted through the system.
We re-designed the connections from the fume cabinets from Polypropylene including balancing dampers.
We also supplied and installed Polypropylene Extraction Fans at high level within the laboratory, all carried out without any ‘down time’ to the customer.

Sunseeker

Project Brief

To remove exiting ventilation equipment, and re-design, manufacture & install a Ventilation system to remove the glue fumes from the upholstery department.

Fume extraction

Having provided ventilation services for Sunseeker for a number of years, we were called in to assist with the re-location of their Upholstery Department, as they had outgrown their existing facility.

We were asked to remove a large extraction canopy where they would place items of furniture whilst the adhesive cured, as well as a large wall mounted extraction chamber. This chamber would remove the fumes from the adhesive as it was sprayed onto the furniture.

The removal was as straight forward as expected. The challenges arose when we had to fit the equipment in the new area.

As the pictures show, there were countless obstructions such as sprinkler pipes, supporting columns, lighting grids etc. However, using our in-house CAD facilities we were able to come up with a design that worked efficiently, and allowed the re-installation to be carried out without any major down time.

Lush

Project Brief

To design, manufacture & install high level general extraction to remove steam laden air from the Dairy Department.

A ‘Lush’ job

Globally Renowned cosmetic retailer Lush, headquartered in Poole had an issue in their Dairy Department with a large amount of steam being generated by the mixing vats and ‘lingering’ in the area.

Although the steam is not hazardous, the visibility within the area was becoming dangerous, as it is a high employee traffic area.

We designed a system that will remove the air within the area 15 times every hour. However, as their manufacturing demands fluctuate at some points of the year, we designed the system in 2 separate sections, so that during less busy periods the amount of air removed every 7.5 times an hour.

This has enabled complete control over their demands of the system requirements.

AT&T Blandford

Project Brief

To design, manufacture & install high level vehicle exhaust extraction to remove the diesel exhaust fumes from the Large ‘Disaster Recovery’ generator trailers, located within the unit.

Project Goals

After undertaking the original installation of 2 fully ducted Vehicle Exhaust Hose Reels, for the Global telecommunications corporation AT&T, which had worked so well for a number of years, we were invited to assist them again with their premises re-location. They had outgrown their existing premises of 595M² by some way, as this area could only house 2 disaster recovery trailers at any 1 time.

Their new premises of 5100M² allowing for up to 8 Disaster recovery trailers, required 5 fully ducted Vehicle Exhaust Hose Reels over a total distance of 80M.

Due to the large scale of the premises, we also had to design and fabricate the supporting steelwork for the Exhaust Hose Reels. Working in conjunction with AT&T’s structural engineers and within health & safety constraints, all of these factors came into complete sync as the project was installed and commissioned with ease, giving the client a fume extraction system fit for purpose.
