Functions of OPT HVLS Fans
KEEP IT DRY
By maintaining consistent temperatures from ceiling to floor and wall to wall,OPT® are an energy-efficient approach to producing consistent produce, reducing condensation and boosting worker comfort and productivity.
OPTFANS, which span up to 24 feet (7.3m) in diameter, move air throughout the entire space, including up and over obstructions such as machinery and stacked product. This airflow pattern ensures air reaches all corners of the building, maintaining consistent conditions throughout while eliminating condensation and stagnant spots where produce can quickly spoil.
Not only do OPTFANS keep produce dry, they also work with heating and ventilation systems to increase worker comfort and save energy costs throughout the year. In the hotter months, they (obviously) cool things down. When set on slow speeds in winter, the fans use their large size—not speed—to redirect hot air down from the ceiling, creating an even temperature throughout with minimal energy use.
KEEP THEM COMFORTABLE
Studies have shown that more comfortable workers are safer and more productive. A single OPTFANS can replace dozens of small, noisy overhead and exhaust fans while using only a fraction of the energy. Move hot air away from technicians working on running machinery and provide a comforting breeze throughout the space at the same time.
