What is the Buoyancy Effect?

Understanding Bouyancy driven natural ventilation

Everyday more and more commercial and industrial buildings are seeing the benefits of buoyancy driven natural ventilation. This type of natural ventilation, also known as stack-effect ventilation, relies on the differences in temperature between the inside and outside of the building to promote air-flow. By designing ventilation systems to take advantage of the buoyancy effect the interior can become significantly cooler and more comfortable. Smart placement of exhaust ventilators and intake louvers can have a huge impact on air flow and temperatures within a building.

Natural ventilation provides energy savings and maintenance savings. Switching to a natural system can help your facility hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, with significant cost savings over time. When a dollar value is put to the promise of “savings” it becomes real. One company chose natural ventilation for their project based on the million dollar savings they saw by using the Moffitt Cost Calculator.

Sometimes ESFR Sprinklers Aren't Enough for Fire Protection.

Posted by Ian Lachut

Feb 7, 2017 2:51:00 PM

When moving into a pre-existing facility the emergency fire system may need updationg to fit current requirements. However, knowing the exact requirements for each building, can be a challenge. While most warehouses in the U.S. require ESFR (Early Suppression, Fast Response) sprinkler systems many large facilities may instead require automatic heat and smoke vents. Choosing the right one is important for code requirements and for safety. Using both is not always the right answer, as the two systems are not always compatible. Before making any decisions it is important to know the advantages and drawbacks of fast response sprinklers and smoke vents like the Moffitt Firex.

Finding the Most Effective Industrial Ventilation System

Posted by Ian Lachut

Jan 17, 2017 2:30:00 PM

The industrial ventilation design process is much more complicated than simply installing a bunch of fans. Numerous factors come into play when designing a ventilation system. The height of the roof, temperature of the process heat, average wind speed, and building materials can all have an effect on the building's ventilation. Fortunately The Moffitt team knows the ins-and-outs of ventilation systems and can help anyone find the optimal industrial ventilator for their facility.

Emergency Heat and Smoke Control

Emergency heat and smoke vents, like the Moffitt Firex have been proven to save lives. When there is a fire emergency smoke vents open automatically without electricity or human action. By allowing the smoke from the fire to evacuate, the firefighters access and response time is improved and the dangers of smoke inhalation are decreased. The Moffitt Firex has been manufactured for over 60 years and has helped protect hundreds of buildings and thousands of lives.

CLARK is a new addition to the Moffitt team but far from a new addition to the world of industrial ventilation manufacturing. Clark has worked in Denison, TX for years now, creating industrial ventilators like the RidgePac and smoke relief products like the Firex. We sat down with Clark and asked him a few questions about himself and his team at Moffitt West.

What is Cross Ventilation?

Posted by Ian Lachut

Oct 17, 2016 11:43:00 AM

What You Need to Know About "Cross-Ventilation".

Cross ventilation (also called Wind Effect Ventilation) is a natural method of cooling. It has quite literally been used for centuries. The system relies on wind to force cool exterior air into the building through an inlet (like a wall louver, a gable, or an open window) while an outlet forces warm interior air outside (through a roof vent or higher window opening). Modern natural ventilation systems help increase the flow of cool air coming in and assist the hot air going out. This increases building air flow naturally.
