We’ve spent many a Strait Talk entry discussing what types of fans to use and where to place them (be honest, aren’t you smarter for it?). So this month, we decided to change things up a bit… and talk about how to place fans in pick module aisles. See what we did there? Gotta keep our readers on their toes!
High Velocity (HV) fans are best suited for use in pick modules, as they are able to move air quickly from one end to the other. The key to proper airflow is making sure all aisles are moving air in the same direction. Determining this direction should take into account any large, wall mounted supply and exhaust fans that may be present in the facility as well (always want to accelerate air from supply to exhaust). In addition to this setup, fans at the end of the aisles can be turned sideways – helping to generate airflow around the pick module perimeter.
