Temporary Hospital Ventilation Hire- The Challenge

A major replacement programme of the hospitals air handling systems was programmed. We were instructed to supply a temporary hospital ventilation hire system with on-going support to maintain essential ventilation operation.

 

As a phased programme, a flexible system would be required that could be moved to follow the progressing works. The supply air was to be tempered to 17degrees.

The Solution to Temporary Hospital Ventilation Hire

We recommended that a single large ACR 160.120 AHU be located on and flat roof adjacent to the plant room. Flexible ductwork could then be run away from the unit into the plant room and extended as required. Finally, the clients contractors would complete the connections to the plant as required.

 

For efficient operation, a plate heat exchanger system was recommended to heat the air. This utilises a water/glycol mixture which is pumped through the AHU’s heater batteries and the exchanger.

 

The primary side was fed from the clients LTHW system. This isolates the primary from the secondary sides- advantages include, more stable temperature control and frost protection afforded by the glycol mix. A tank is fitted to give head for pumping and to stabilise the temperature in the system.

 

All in all, we have found this a very effective way of heating our AHU’s.

Summary

This project was installed for three months. The clients programme was very well handled by their contractors and all in all the project went very smoothly.

 

The temporary AHU was applied and functioned very well meeting all the design requirements.
