Displacement Ventilation in Industrial Buildings

Modern displacement ventilation was first developed for factories in Europe, and it remains a very effective industrial ventilation solution. The increased ventilation effectiveness and inherent pollution control of displacement ventilation ensures a clean breathing zone for occupants while providing cooling to the space.

The industrial environment typically contains many sources of pollution, such as welding fumes, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), adhesives, and solvents. Displacement ventilation is a stratified system which carries pollutants that are lighter than air up out of the occupied zone with the airflow, leaving employees with safe, healthy breathing air. Another typical feature of industrial facilities is high ceilings. Since displacement systems only condition the occupied zone, these buildings can achieve significant energy savings by implementing displacement.
