Car Park Extraction and CO detection

Vortice is continuing its development process on its existing product range of axial and centrifugal fans including, material handling, smoke rated and ATEX. Vortice is now pleased now to include Jet Fans in its range of fans produced by Vortice group company Casals Ventilation.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless gas produce when fuels such as gasoline, propane, and oil are burned. It is an extremely toxic gas that can even cause death when allowed to build up to dangerous levels. Multi-storey and underground car parks are at particular risk of CO build-up due to the number of cars that can be present in the space.

To solve the issue of CO build-up in car parks, it is critical that these spaces are adequately ventilated.

This is achievable by installing fans that move fresh air into the space, while pushing out contaminated air that has a significant CO content.

Natural ventilation may also be used to assist in diminishing CO levels. Vortice offers a range of fans suitable for this purpose, as part of the Casals range of process fans. These include fans located within the car park itself, or roof mounted with ducting to service the space. These fans are also able to double as smoke fans in the event of a fire.

The Casals range can be used in conjunction with the CO-MASTER and CO-SENS accessories.

This allows the CO concentration in a space to be measured and for fans to be switched on automatically when the ppm exceeds a set threshold. This allows for more efficient air renewal in a space, with the CO-MASTER being able to activate fans in specific zones, to avoid fans being used where unnecessary.

CO Master and CO Sens

Overall, it is crucial to take the necessary steps to prevent the build-up of CO in car parks to ensure the safety of those who use them. Through proper use of ventilation and sensors, the danger of CO in car parks can be reduced to the benefit of all.

Vortice would be happy to work alongside you for specific applications and to work together to produce a fan to the requirements of the installation.
