Clean air in factory setting
We have a plant of about 200,000 sq. ft. We build about 800 fireplaces a day and have about 300 members working in the production area. Production area consist of abrication equipment, liquid paint system (wash systems, cure ovens) and assembly areas. Our air quailty is fair but we need to improve.
I am planning to dedicate (assign) an egineer to improve air
quailty isses in the factory. I am looking for a procedure document/plan) of how to start recording information on current air quailty condition. Including all HVAC air equipment, exhaust fans, open doors, windows, building negative, positive, air pressure etc. If some one could give me some didection on this I would sure appreciated it.Barry's Response
It sounds like you're dealing with an indoor AQ problem, which is not my area of expertise. Since you plan on consulting with an engineer, hopefully one who works with HVAC design, I would expect his firm to be able to address all of these concerns. Alternatively, if he comes from within and does not specialize in this type of problem, he could be the one to liaise with an HVAC air consulting firm of this sort.
They are not hard to find with Google or your yellow pages. Look under "heating contractors" or "air conditioning contractors".
There is a section in this air pollution article
on what, besides HVAC systems, affects your indoor air quality at home.Search
