A turbo vent comprises of a hollow dome with vertical vanes spaced around its circumference. The dome is secured to a supporting spindle via a system of ball bearings that allows the dome to rotate freely about the spindle. The spindle, in turn, is secured to a neck designed to facilitate attachment to the roof of the building. A suitable hole is made in the roof and the turbo vent is installed on the roof to cover the hole.
How does it work?
Turbo vents use the turbine effect to harness the power in moving air to rotate the dome. The rotating dome uses the reverse turbine effect to generate a pressure differential that causes air to flow from within the turbo vent and out through its vanes.
Effective ventilation is an important aspect of an industrial environment, Fresh air makes people feel more energetic and productive, while hot air makes people exhausted. The ventilator prevents the people from heat stress.
Turbine ventilators which are light in weight can be mounted onto any existing industrial roofs with ducting without disturbing the existing structure. Wind ventilators work with the available normal wind speed.
Turbo vents can be installed singly or in multiples on the roofs of most buildings. As long as there is provision for air to flow in to replace the stale air being extracted, the turbo vent system induces a constant flow of air through the building.
