|University Selects Fans and Gets "FIRST HAND" Experience of Belt Drive Benefit|
Berry College located in Mount Berry, Georgia, selected M.K. Plastics' Axijet® High Plume Dilution Blowers for the laboratory exhaust fans on their new Science and Biology building. The Axijets selected were belt drive, versus the direct drive type previously considered.
Upon system start-up and balancing, the proper exhaust flows could not be obtained. Since the M.K. Plastics Axijets have AMCA (Air Movement and Control Association) certification for sound and air performance, the performance of these fans are independently tested and confirmed by AMCA.
Through air balancing of the Berry exhaust system, it was identified that the system static pressure was greater than that originally calculated.
Since the fans supplied were M.K. Plastics' Axijets with standard belt drives, the fan RPM could easily be adjusted to compensate for the additional static pressure, and the required exhaust flow for laboratory safety and containment could be achieved.
The original direct drive fans, because of their fixed RPM, could never have been adjusted to compensate for the required flow at increased static without a fan change.
The simple, and fan industry standard, belt drive flexibility, offered on the M.K. Plastics Axijet High Plume Dilution Blower saved Berry College significant money, time, and effort, and got their laboratory facility up and running on time!
Berry College's Science and Biology Building has 3 Axijet exhaust systems consisting of 7 Axijet High Plume Dilution Blowers, exhausting approximately 190,000 CFM.
