What is the Difference Between Blow Through and Draw Through?

3 MIN READ

This blog was guest written by Chris Leach, Applications Engineer. There are two main non-recirculating direct gas-fired heater designs for commercial and industrial applications and those are blow-through and draw-through. The main difference in these two systems is the location of the blower relative to the burner. While a simple difference, blow-through units provide multiple benefits for large industrial space heating driven applications. Blow-through, as defined by the DOE (Department of Energy) as HTHV (High Temperature Heating & Ventilation) and employed in our S-Series heaters, places the blower before the burner and benefits from a higher LAT (Leaving Air Temperature) and temperature rise (∆T). HTHV units are not limited by the fan components in the hot airstream and can safely discharge at the maximum allowable limit for CSA certified direct fired applications. Draw-through units place the blower after the burner and have a lower LAT and ∆T due to limitations of the fan components in the hot air stream. Each of these systems has a specific purpose for large industrial spaces. For heating driven applications, maximizing the BTU to CFM ratio maximizes efficiency ...

The Right Solution For Industrial Cooling Lies Somewhere Between DX Cooling And HVLS Fans

2 MIN READ

Evaporative cooling can provide significant temperature relief at a fraction of the cost of mechanical cooling. Industrial settings - with much exhaust airflow for contaminants and a substantial footprint - can struggle to achieve clean and temperate indoor air conditions without expensive mechanical cooling systems. However, the sheer size of many of these facilities prices that technology out of the possible solution set. On the other end of the cooling option spectrum, HVLS fans tend to move the hot air around, dependent on contact cooling for temperature relief. The moving air from HVLS fans can help employees feel more comfortable but cannot address internal heat gains within a facility nor provide temperature relief. Somewhere between those two options stands evaporative cooling technology, which provides tempered make-up air while also improving indoor air quality with the usage of 100% outdoor air.    Two-Stage Evaporative Cooling Technology Shines in Industrial Facilities The Cambridge ESC-Series evaporative cooling unit is a semi-custom fabricated air handler that can utilize direct (DEC), indirect (IEC) evaporative cooling, or a combination of both indirect/direct (two-stage) evaporative cooling to meet specific usage ...

How Does a Make-Up Air Unit Work?

2 MIN READ
The Cambridge M-Series make-up air unit is a 100% outside air direct-fired, tempered ventilation system that provides the most energy efficient solution to offset building exhaust. It is designed to be durable and reliable, with lower maintenance costs. It works by tempering 100% outside air, creating a consistently comfortable and well-ventilated facility, resolving the uneven temperatures caused by the exhaust process.

Make-up Air Production Facility Grand Opening Tour

1 MIN READ
Video recap from our livestreamed Grand Opening from Tuesday, June 29th, 2021. This 20 minute tour will be a quick glimpse into a lean workstation as well as a high-level look at what a people-centric culture is all about. We touch on continuous improvement (lean) and a close-up to what expansion during a pandemic looks like. We also showcase our M-Series Make-up air product line that brings in the fresh, tempered air into warehouses, factories and distribution centers all over the county.

Building a comfortable and clean facility starts with the right horsepower

3 MIN READ
Bringing in 100% outside air and introducing it to our blower FIRST before raising the temperature is the basis of the S-series unit. Due to this, we often show our engineering community the effect of our fans processing an air mass that is higher in density – thus containing more oxygen; a vital component in clean combustion.
