RHINOTUFF Hybrid Ventilators are unique and offer the dual options of natural as well as forced ventilation in industrial and commercial buildings.
Hybrid Ventilators consist of motor driven impellers, which are housed within painted or epoxy coated Mild Steel (M.S.) Casings and are covered at the top by RHINOTUFF Turbo Ventilator Fans.
They offer the flexibility of natural as well as forced ventilation. The motor driven Roof Extractor can be switched on as and when there is a need for enhanced ventilation at a constant rate. After the Extractor is switched off, the Turbo Fan mounted on top continues to provide natural ventilation.
RHINOTUFF Hybrid Ventilators can reach a R.P.M. of 1440 and an exhaust capacity of 10000 C.F.M. when the electric motor is on. After the Extractor is turned off the Turbo Ventilator above takes over and continues to revolve and provide natural ventilation at variable rates (depending on natural factors such as temperature and pressure differential, stack height and the wind velocity). The Turbo Ventilator Fans can exhaust up to 2700 C.F.M. of inside stale air in peak working conditions (when all the performance determining factors noted above are at their maximum).
RHINOTUFF Hybrid Ventilators are capable of withstanding a high wind speed and are guaranteed against leakage of rain water. In addition, they are highly effective, mechanically strong, impact resistant,
light weight, weather and storm proof, maintenance free, easily repairable, easy to install, adaptable to any roof and are economical to use.
Plastic Base Plates (also called as the Roof Adapters), which are manufactured in a profile or corrugation matching with that of the roof sheets are used for fixing the Hybrid Ventilators. They allow the freedom and flexibility of installing the Hybrid Ventilators anywhere on the roof, while ensuring hassle free and leakage proof installation.
RHINOTUFF Hybrid Ventilators are commonly used in a wide spectrum of process based industries where there is a requirement for both natural as well as forced ventilation.
How to INSTALL RHINOTUFF ROOF EXTRACTOR & HYBRID VENTILATOR
- Identify the right location for fixing of the RHINOTUFF Roof Extractor or RHINOTUFF Hybrid Ventilator. This is done by our team of experts in consultation with the customers while keeping in mind their ventilation needs
- Lift the Roof Extractor or Hybrid Ventilator over to the roof - manually or by using mechanized equipment
- Cut an opening in the sheet using a hand grinder or cutter. The size of the cut out should be equal to the size of the opening of the Plastic Base Plate (Roof Adapter) over which the Roof Extractor or Hybrid Ventilator is to be mounted
- One end of the Plastic Base Plate is manually pushed underneath the existing roof sheet or the ridge flashing just above it. The other end of the Plastic Base Plates is made to rest over the roof sheet just below it. The Plastic Base Plates are always positioned and rested over the steel purlins for proper support
- The Plastic Base Plate is then fastened all along its length and width using self tapping screws, rivets or ‘J’ shaped hooks (depending on the type of roof sheet installed). A total of 18 nos. of screws / rivets are applied along the entire length and width of the Plastic Base Plates. The fasteners help firmly hold the Plastic Base Plates against the roof sheets and the steel purlins underneath. The steel purlins help firmly hold the Plastic Base Plate and prevent it from getting dislodged and blowing off during gusty winds and storms
- Roof Extractor or the Hybrid Ventilator is then mounted over the Plastic Base Plate
- A total of 4 no. of screws or rivets are applied all around to fasten the Roof Extractoror the Hybrid Ventilator on to the Plastic Base Plate
- The Extractor or Hybrid Ventilator is then thoroughly checked and inspected
- Scrap is removed from the place of installation and the site is handed over back tothe customer
