Air handling surveys are a key element in air handling system maintenance. They are especially important when areas of food production or food processing need to regularly change to meet the demands of production and the customer.
Not only do air handling systems ensure a good level of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and a hygienic production environment, but they help to reduce the cross contamination caused by airborne impurities. Correct air mapping, distribution and ventilation within a food manufacturing environment is essential. The locations of the air handling equipment, ductwork and ventilation systems need to minimise airborne contamination.
In an initiative to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and reduce the level of airborne contamination across the food manufacturing industry, one of the UK’s most successful clean air specialists have launched a scheme of free air handling surveys. Specialising solely within food industry air hygiene and air management, ‘Trusted Partners in Clean Air’ HVDS are concentrating on making food industry air filtration, ventilation, and air handling a better experience by providing free air handling site surveys.
“The objective of the free air handling surveys is to provide the food manufacturing industry with a better understanding of their air handling systems. This will ultimately enhance the site operation, manufacturing and lower safety and contamination risks. Each of the air handling site surveys are tailored around the individual customer and their manufacturing needs. The information that we provide in our free site surveys will enable manufacturers to make calculated decisions. Not only to improve their level of air hygiene, but also significantly increase operating efficiency and lower energy costs.” – Mark Stevens, Managing Director, HVDS.
The air hygiene professionals HVDS operate solely within the food industry, where they are continuously developing an outstanding reputation for technical guidance, customer understanding and the highest possible quality of service.
