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 ...

Why We Invested In Our Own Facility

3 MIN READ
As a manufacturer of industrial HVAC equipment, we know quite a bit about the problems that poor indoor air quality within your facility can have on your employees during hot summer months. Trying to achieve temperature relief within your facility when it is 100° F outside, and even hotter inside, requires more than opening your dock doors and pulling hot air through your facility while running HVLS fans. For most facilities, including ours, the equipment that is running inside the facility provides additional heat gain that can drive indoor temperatures well above the 100° F outside air temperature. When this happens within the facility your productivity, quality and even safety may be affected. Your ability to retain quality employees can suffer as well as your ability to hire new talent can be difficult as well.
