Every worksite and jobsite is unique in the different elements that it needs to retain productivity and safety. Choosing the right fan is necessary in order to provide the support workers need. In some cases, air movers or drum and barrel cooling fans are the indicated solution. Other applications call for more specific solutions such as dehumidifiers, misting fans or evaporative cooling fans.
Considerations When Choosing Worksite and Job site Fans
The factors that must be considered when choosing fans for today's jobsites and worksites are nearly as varied as their particular environments. The diversity of today's applications call for solutions that meet specific needs. While not an exhaustive list, the factors outlined below are some of the most important:
The area where people are working is a significant factor. While drum and barrel cooling fans, pedestal fans, explosion proof portable cooling fans and air movers might be the ideal solution for spaces that are open, the same might not be true for confined areas. These types of fans tend to deliver a high volume of air and/or air that's elevated in pressure.
Depending on the configuration of the work area, this could prove to be too strong for the materials that are in the space and the workers. Smaller worksites and areas might be better served by choosing alternative solutions such as confined space blowers or explosion proof confined space ventilator fans.
Today's worksites and jobsites are often, by nature, full of hazards. Fall hazards, explosion hazards and fire hazards are just a few that often result in devastating consequences if the right solutions are not applied. Due to the flammable nature of many of materials that are used today, the use of fans and blowers that guard against potential explosions is a must.
Explosion proof confined space ventilator fans, for example, are the ideal solution for those applications that require humidity and/or noxious fumes to be channeled out of the work area. When cooling is the primary objective, powerful and durable explosion proof portable cooling fans deliver excellent performance across a range of applications.
As mentioned previously, humidity is often a factor that prompts the exploration of fans or blowers. For environments that continuously battle a humid and moist atmosphere, both workers and machinery can be affected. Mold and mildew can take its toll on the materials within a space and negatively affect working conditions for employees.
- Worker comfort
Keeping workers comfortable can boost morale and increase productivity. Misting fans, for example, can reduce the temperature of a hot kitchen by up to 30 degrees. A misting fan is also a great way for a restaurant to keep the humidity and temperature of an outdoor eating area at bay for customers.
Working when exposed to the elements can reduce workers' focus on the job at hand. Portable Heaters that are targeted to a particular application can assist.
