Melt Shop | Chicago, IL

A. Finkl & Sons

ATI Allvac Moffittvent assembly

Moffitt provided a full turn-key ventilation solution for A. Finkl & Sons’ aluminum melt shop in Chicago, IL. Moffitt utilized a combination of natural ventilation and powered ventilation to cool the facility.

Moffitt supplied, manufactured, and installed seven hundred twenty feet of MoffittVent™ natural ventilators. In addition, utilizing the natural ventilation the MoffittVent™ removes warm air from the work floor without the use of electricity. This method works particularly well in a high heat environment like an aluminum melt shop.

A Hooded Roof Fan was also installed. Therefore, this fan supplies fresh air into a critical work area within the building. By focusing the cool air directly where workers are present they plant now avoids wasting energy by cooling areas where it’s not needed.
