What Are Air Handling Systems?

Air handling systems are used to condition and circulate air as a part of a larger HVAC system, which stands for heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning. Needless to say, air handling systems are essential especially when it comes to food safety in commercial kitchens, restaurants, and food-service establishments. In fact, the United States Food and Drug Administration believes that because airborne contamination is strongly suspected as the cause of potentially harmful pathogens, a comprehensive assessment of the air supply in restaurants and food-service establishments should be conducted, specifically in both processing and ventilation air.

More specifically, properly installed and utilized air handling equipment is essential for improving the air flow inside your restaurant or food-service establishment. This is important because stale indoor air can become toxic to your food-service staff and crew. In fact, studies point out that a commercial kitchen without proper ventilation can be three times more harmful that smog-filled streets.

How Air Handling Units Work and their Components

An air handling system needs to have several components in order to work smoothly. First, it needs to have an air filter. Air handling unit filters are important because they provide clean, dust-free air. Filtration is generally the first step in the operation of air handling units.

Next, heating or cooling elements in an air handling system are designed to provide heating, cooling, or both in order to change the supply air temperature as well as the humidity level, depending on the location and application.

A humidifier is also an essential type of air handling equipment. Humidification is especially needed in countries or places that have colder climates. There are various types of humidification that may be used, and they are the following: evaporative, vaporizer, spray mist, ultrasonic, and wetted medium.

A mixing chamber is not one of the most conspicuous elements of an air handling system, but very important just the same. It is where the ratio between types of air (return, outside, exhaust) is controlled.

One of the most important parts of an air handling system is a wall exhaust fan or blower. It is the specific air handling equipment that is designed to circulate the air inside your restaurant or food-service establishment.
