A2V recently completed the air extraction and treatment system to NGK’s newest manufacturing line at their facility in Airport Industria, Cape Town. As per previous projects, the system extracts air contaminated with xylene and other benzine type organic contaminants and treats it through a particulate filter to remove ash, followed by activated carbon filter to remove the organic vapors, before discharging the treated air to atmosphere.
The project also included AC supply to maintain the air temperature in the process at optimal levels as well as the fresh air supply to the operator workstations on the line.
This is the third system that A2V have installed as a turnkey project for NGK and continue to service.

Protea Chemicals – New Chlorine Store
The ventilation system was designed to ensure early detection of leaks with chlorine sensors situated at low points in the collection zone. The sensors activate the emergency extraction and scrubbing system and close the exits in the event of a tank rupture. The floor of the storage area is designed to be effectively ‘swept’ by even extraction via a low level extraction manifold located along one side of the facility.
A2V also carried out the Fire Prevention Plan for the new facility which was commissioned in September 2013.

NGK Ceramics – Gas Extraction and Carbon Adsorbtion System
A2V were appointed to design an air extraction and filtration system for one of NGK Ceramic’s new manufacturing process. The new manufacturing process produces a number of organic solvents as vapours, including xylene, ethyl benzene, n-buthanol, ethanol and methanol. Of these solvents, benzene is restricted in terms of the National Air Quality Act (2004). The limit is currently 10 ug/m3 and will be amended to 5 ug/m3 in 2015.
