Using CFD to Measure Humidity Evacuation Efficiency for a Kitchen Exhaust Hood System

When developing kitchen exhaust hood systems, CaptiveAire engineers investigate methods to remove heat and effluent produced during the cooking process. Various conditions are considered such as containing vapor from stoves and grills, reducing condensation on surfaces, and maintaining cleanliness of the cooking space. They must also consider the comfort of the cooking staff by providing a steady supply of fresh air and regulating the temperature and humidity inside the kitchen.

Introduction to Specifying HVLS Fans

High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans are widely used in commercial and industrial settings due to their superior performance to provide comfort, energy savings, and versatility. When compared to traditional high-speed fans, HVLS fans offer the architect and engineer greater control over the design and implementation of air circulation strategies in large, high ceiling environments. This guide discusses factors that affect air displacement, HVLS project solutions, and other factors to consider when specifying an HVLS fan.

Thermal Management Solutions in Electronics Enclosures

Heat is the number one enemy of electrical and electronic equipment. As technology in electronic packaging has advanced, so has the impact of thermal loading and temperature rise. Smaller electronic components and increasingly dense packaging in enclosures have made these systems much more sensitive to external influences such as temperature, dust, oil and humidity. 57% of all component failures are heat related, followed by vibration, humidity and dust respectively. The use of air conditioners can help eliminate three of these potential system failures. (Temperature, Humidity, and Dust). This white paper provides information on air conditioner science and Rittal’s product line-up for industrial scenarios.
