New Fume Exhaust & Dust Extraction Case Studies

Newgate Air Systems have recently added two new examples of innovation and design in dust and fume extraction installations on the Case Studies pages of our website.

The extraction of fumes, gases and dust particles is a key component for creating safe and healthy working conditions while reducing pollution and contamination. It has to be said that some fume and dust extraction projects are more complex than others but as our clients know, Newgate Air Systems rises to the challenge.

Extracting fumes from a steel profile burning process. In this instance, Newgate Air Systems was required to create a fume extraction system that captures fumes from a travelling burning torch as moves across 80m2 burning table. Newgate Air Systems solved the problem by developing a matrix of fume hoods across the table with a series of dampers and limit switches to direct the extraction to the immediate cutting zone. We then installed a lip extraction duct along the length of the table that is then connected to the burner head carriage.

This process is similar to the movable fume extraction systems we have used for vehicle exhaust fumes in the manufacture of heavy machinery.

Malting Plant Dust Extraction System. One of the potentially dangerous elements in the distillery process is the accumulation of explosive grain dust. Newgate Air Systems was recently required to design and install a dust extraction system that covers multiple product conveyors and the five germination units that feed into a single processing system. In total this required an 18 point extraction system, a dust collection unit including storage hopper, and a main extract fan assembly complete with acoustic enclosure for noise reduction. Though we say it ourselves, it works like a dream and we are now in discussion with the client to design a similar dust extraction system for one of their larger facilities.

Industrial Units To Let and Workshops For Rent in Wallsend

Newgate Air Systems are proud of our North East roots and our Geordie heritage. But from a practical point of view we’d have been hard pressed to find a better location for our business. As an engineering company with fume & dust extraction contracts all over the UK and in Europe, Willington Quay in Wallsend is the perfect venue. Wallsend is in the heart of the Tyne & Wear metropolis. With the Tyne Tunnel on our door step it is as easy to get across the river to Sunderland, South Shields, Jarrow and Gateshead as it is get to our immediate neighbours in Newcastle, Whitley Bay, North Shields and Tynemouth. Wallsend is on the A19 / A1(M) for all roads north and south. We are on the Tyne & Wear Metro line, a stone’s throw from the national rail network and a short distance from Newcastle International Airport. From the ferry and freight terminals on the Tyne to the local markets – including the thriving Royal Quays Shopping Centre on our doorstep – Wallsend perfectly situated for new and existing businesses.

Marine Buildings Ltd currently has 6 newly refurbished industrial units and workshops to let at their Willington Quay facility in Wallsend.

Air Conditioning, Ventilation, Refrigeration and Cold Storage

Newgate Air Systems know a thing or two about clean air and healthy work conditions. So do our friends and web partners, Airfrost Ltd. Airfrost are a Lancashire-based company serving the North of England with the complete range of refrigerated food and drink stores, from chiller cabinets to blast freezers. Airfrost cold storage and refrigerated display units are found in bars, clubs, restaurants, shops and cafes.

Airfrost are also achnowledged experts in the design and installation of bespoke air conditioning systems. With forty years experience in the industry, Airfrost have witnessed the changes in air conditioning technology.

Once considered a luxury, air conditioning is now something we often take for granted. When we are staying in a hotel, we expect a pleasant temperature in the same way that we expect excellent customer service and welcoming surroundings. The same is true for shopping and dining out and if we feel uncomfortable in one environment then, as customers, we will move on to somewhere else.

The good news for business owners, managers and landlords is that modern air conditioning is not only affordable but with breakthroughs in air conditioning technology it is also environmentally friendly. One example of technological innovation is in the development of heat exchange systems. Airfrost regularly install VAM heat recovery units or VRV systems as part of a combined air conditioning and ventilation system. Heat exchange systems work by recycling latent heat energy while exchanging stale air for fresh clean air. Not only does this maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels but leads to a considerable saving in costs.

Airfrost design air conditioning for the specific needs of the client. Whether it is a directed cooling system for computer rooms or a general air conditioning installation for a hospital or office block, Airfrost air conditioning systems are cost effective and energy efficient.
