The Challenge:

When food ingredient manufacturer Kerry Foods were undertaking a factory refurbishment, they chose us to design and install their new ventilation system.

The system was to be value engineered to a challenging budget but also needed to meet the client’s exacting standards.

The Solution:

Penmann’s in-house design team developed an energy efficient solution, working on the principle of displacement air distribution.

The system was also designed to maintain a pressure cascade through the factory. Differential air pressure was monitored across production boundaries and controlled via inverter drives on fan motors.
