Air curtains are devices used to reduce heat loss from buildings and to prevent air or contaminants from moving from one open space to another.
These usually take the form of a downward-facing blower fan mounted over the entrance to a building, or an opening between two spaces conditioned at different temperatures. They provide a continuous broad stream of air circulated across a doorway.
ACE supplies a range of air curtain solutions, including both electrically powered options and powered through compressed air heat recovery systems. Energy savings are achieved by reducing heat transfer between two spaces, reducing the load on the building’s heating or air conditioning system.
Air curtains save up to 80% of energy lost…
Used effectively air curtains can save up to 80% of the energy lost over an open doorway when compared to a doorway with no air curtain. They are a brilliant addition to creating an energy saving system using heat recovery that can reduce both energy consumption and costs.
Air curtains are also vital in creating and maintaining a suitable environment for many applications. Air curtains are also effective in preventing contaminants from entering through an open door such as airborne dust and pollution. Using an air curtain with a high pressure jet can also stop flying insects from passing through a doorway.
Some applications of air curtains include:
- Cold Storage
- Clean Rooms
- Product Cooling
- Product drying
- Contaminant Control
- Climate Control
- Cleaning on the production line
