  • ISO45001:2018 Certification Success

    ISO45001:2018 Certification Success

    Following a successful audit process, Wozair is pleased to have achieved ISO45001:2018 certification. Transitioning from the existing OHSAS 18001 standing means Wozair is perfectly positioned to provide a framework to manage Occupational Health & Safety risks and opportunities. Speaking about the achievement, Sarah Burns, Senior QHSE Co-ordinator, explains: “We have worked hard to ensure there is a Management System in place to make all our employees feel safer and have the knowledge that we are doing all that we can to eliminate hazards where possible and minimise risks. We are looking to continually improve on our processes, working in conjunction with our employees and the standard“. Indeed, worker involvement is one of the key differences between ISO45001:2018 and OHSAS 18001. ISO 45001 requires employee training and education to identify risks and help create a successful safety program, allowing broader employee participation. Additionally, ISO 45001 follows a preventative process, requiring hazard risks to be evaluated and remedied before they cause accidents and injuries, unlike OHSAS 18001, which focused only on hazard control.

  • Damper Pressure Drop Testing

    Damper Pressure Drop Testing

    Wozair has recently been conducting pressure testing for a number of its damper products using a purpose built airflow facility. Lewis Stroud, Proposals Engineer, who recently joined Wozair on a full time basis following a successful placement year during his undergraduate studies, was tasked with designing the test rig and performing the tests. The test rig allows us to measure the pressure drop for a range of Wozair damper products to determine their loss coefficient, including the Volume Control Damper, Marine Fire Damper and Blast Resistant Damper. All instrumentation used for testing is independently calibrated. Lewis explains: “knowing the total pressure loss through a ductwork system is critical for HVAC design (specifically fan selection). Understanding how our products impact on that, however minimal, is very important. The first stage is to undertake this testing in-house, however once completed we will look to have the results independently verified by a third party and published”.

  • Successful Fire Damper Test

    Successful Fire Damper Test

    In June 2020, Wozair undertook an IMO 2010 FTP Code, A class deck test, on one of its ‘MFD’ fire dampers.  The test was necessary to extend the type approved range of our product to cover damper sizes supplied to and installed by one of our customers, in buildings on the TCO project, Kazakhstan. The test damper was constructed in stainless steel 316L and operated using an electric actuator.  It had an internal duct size of 1500 mm x 1500 mm. The test was performed at Applus Laboratories and due to travel restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the test was witnessed remotely using live stream video. We are pleased to say that the damper successfully passed stability and insulation integrity for the 60 minutes test. We are now able to offer A-60 rated deck fire dampers up to the following maximum sizes: 2500 x 1220 mm and 1500 x 1500 mm (internal width x height).

  • Manufacturing 5S Project

    Manufacturing 5S Project

    Wozair is currently engaging in the Fit for Nuclear (F4N) programme which includes a category on Process Excellence. As well as the elements of Manufacturing Strategy, Value Stream Management, Performance Management, Process Improvement Training, Standard Work Methods, Planned Maintenance, Communication, Supply Chain Management and Environmental Management, Process Excellence also includes the adoption of 5S Workplace Organisation methods. At Wozair our aim is always to create a streamlined, efficient manufacturing environment, whilst maintaining the essential high-quality standards. This is the reason behind the introduction and implementation of 5S, which began in 2019. 5S was developed in Japan and was created as part of the Toyota Production System (TPS), the manufacturing method begun by leaders at the Toyota Motor Company in the early and mid-20th century. In its most basic of definition, 5S is a system for organising spaces so work can be performed efficiently, effectively, and safely. The naming of 5S refers to a list of five Japanese words: seiri, seiton, seisō , seiketsu, and shitsuke. These have been translated as Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardise and Sustain. Wozair Operations Manager, Patrick Golding, explains: “Deciding to go for the Fit For Nuclear (F4N) certification has been an excellent opportunity to adopt lean-manufacturing principles on the shop floor, and we used the workings of 5S as our start point.” Patrick continues: “For Wozair a streamlined, efficient workshop and a workforce using the methodology of 5S was the springboard to reducing costs, improving quality and increasing output. It has been proven that 5S fosters greater employee involvement and safer working practices. All shop floor training has been completed and the implementation plan will see us having applied the principles of 5S to every work centre shortly.” An often-held thought is that the final ‘S’ of 5S, Sustain, is arguably the most important. As Patrick details: “there is an energy and motivation to implement the learnings of 5S, however it is key that we continue to monitor and sustain the good work that we have carried out. Without sustained discipline – at the "end" of the 5S process, any benefits from the first four steps would gradually evaporate.”

  • Group Capabilities Demonstrated

    Group Capabilities Demonstrated

    Wozair secured their first project with Thermoplant since joining the Wozair Group in July last year. The project scope consists of the design, manufacture and installation of six sets of Veotec SE2-20SS Spray Eliminators in addition to the supply of commissioning spares for a CCGT (combined cycle gas turbine) power station. Thermoplant were initially contacted by ABB who supplied a number of drives to the power station, after a referral by a UK container manufacturer, following reports of high humidity and water ingress in their drive modules. Thermoplant and Wozair attended site to conduct a survey of existing equipment and subsequently advised on the best solution to resolve the issues witnessed on site. As a result of these exchanges, Tony Williams, Director of Thermoplant and his team are also in the process of tendering for similar solutions and installations at other plants throughout the UK, as well as various projects in the Far East and Middle East. This is an exciting project for the Wozair Group that clearly demonstrates the benefits and synergies created by the acquisitions of both Veotec and Thermoplant. Before photos. After photos.

  • Solution for Air Inlet / Weather Hoods

    Solution for Air Inlet / Weather Hoods

    Our Innovative Replacement Solution for Air Inlet / Weather Hoods

    What level of protection do you believe a weather hood gives your filter system, and what impact are the hoods having on the airflow within the housing? Veotec, a subsidiary of the Wozair Group, believe that these are compromises that you don't need to make, our vertical louvres provide unsurpassed levels of water removal, down to 2µm water droplets. Weather hoods have no efficiency against airborne water droplets, they are only effective against falling rain. Additionally, due to the continuous nature of a vane separator, compared to the segmented nature of weather hoods, the airflow into the filter house is much less turbulent and the velocities are much more even. Traditionally gas turbine filter houses are fitted with weather hoods for the first stage of protection against the weather. Primarily their function is to remove bulk water from rain fall and snow protection. However, we believe there is a better more economical solution. Flow through traditional weather louvres                                  Flow through Veotec vertical louvres   These CFD images show incoming air velocity for traditional weather hoods and vertical louvres/inertial vane separator using identical air volume and duct dimensions. This comparison clearly shows traditional weather hoods have radical fluctuations in velocity compared to vertical louvers/inertial vane separators. The highest velocity for weather hoods is typically observed nearest to the rear of the hoods and biased across the inlet to the lowest hoods. This means the face area of the air intake does not get an even distribution of air flow resulting in the subsequent increased likelihood of water ingress and a varied distribution of air within the filter house across all stages of filtrations as certain sections become more heavily loaded than others. A common solution that is deployed to combat the aforementioned affects weather hoods is the installation of drift eliminator panels to remove some of the droplets that would normally bypass the weather hoods. The efficiency of water droplet removal is linked to velocity therefore in a similar fashion to those reasons stated above, the majority of drift eliminator panels will have minimal effectiveness. Such drift eliminator panels shall also bare a significant additional pressure loss restriction to the system. By installing Veotec’s vertical louvres/inertial vane separators in place of weather hoods the air velocity and distribution is uniform across the full face of the filter house giving predictable performance against water ingress. In independent testing this equipment has been shown to remove 97% of 2 µm water particles and 100% of 5 µm water particles with a pressure loss of only 20Pa at 3.0 m/sec velocity and even greater performance at higher velocities.     Rain and traditional weather hoods                           Rain and Veotec vertical louvers/inertial separators   Furthermore, filter houses with fitted with weather hoods lacking in sufficient drainage facilities are often subject to an inherent problem whereby rain cascades down the front of the hoods. The collected water generally drops from one hood down to the next hood multiplying the water from hood to hood down the face of the inlet. A simple rain shower quickly becomes a waterfall across the hoods. The first few rows of hoods may resist ingress however the lower sections of the intake shall eventually can become overwhelmed by the volume of water leading to further ingress into the filter house often to the detriment of the pre-filters leading to increased maintenance as the bottom rows of filters quickly get saturated. Filters exhibit a spike in restriction prematurely, leading to reduced filter efficiency, shortened filter service life and contamination getting washed through the filters. Due to the design of the vertical louvres/inertial vane separators, the amount of water that can be removed is very high and does not vary across the face area of the inlet. In independent test results the water handling capacity of this equipment was 36 litres (9.45 galls) per minute per square metre of product.   Photographs from inside a typical filter house fitted with traditional filter hoods Photographs from inside a typical filter house 12 months after having vertical louvres/inertial vane separators fitted The water ingress and air velocity variations can also cause several problems for the air filters. Filters are tested in a controlled laboratory setting with relatively uniform velocity conditions and generally stable humidity. These filters are given performance ratings. Those standardized ratings help end users select appropriate performance characteristics to suit their needs. Unfortunately, many filters will experience reduced efficiency and lower dust loading capacity at higher velocities. A F9 filter at 4 m/s (787 ft./min) may drop a grade or two at 5 m/s (984 ft./min.) Dry filters generally maintain efficiency as reported - Standardized tests classify dry filters in a dry laboratory environment with dry dusts. Saturating filters will change the performance. Filters capture and remove particulate from the air. Filters eventually load and either need cleaning or replacement. Some of the contaminants captured on the filters are water soluble. The addition of water or moisture into an installation converts some particles into a solution which is detrimental to the performance of the filtration and or subsequent systems and processes, such as saline solutions which can cause corrosion. Some soluble solutions can seep through most air filters like coffee flows through a coffee filter. The contaminated solution migrates through the filter from the dirty air side to the clean air side where it can dry out and become airborne later. Carrying the contamination into the turbine or other equipment downstream of the filters. Some of the contaminants captured on the filters absorb moisture and swell up like a sponge. Some filters use hydrophilic fibres that also absorb water. These hydrophilic particles and fibres grow and blind off the filter media when wet causing the restriction to increase. The air simply must work harder to get past the larger particles. The level of dust loading and the amount of precipitation bypassing the hoods will impact the intensity of the restriction spikes and the time required to recover after a precipitation event. Wet particles and fibres may also contribute to premature filter media breakdown in freezing environments. Hydrophilic particles hold moisture next to the filter fibres. The moisture then expands during freeze events causing microscopic ruptures throughout the filter surface. Repeated wetting and freezing events will result in performance degradation. End of filter life is normally observed as increasing frequency and intensity of restriction and precipitation induced restriction spikes. Dry filters will perform better and last longer.

The charity was created in 1973 by women with breast cancer for women with breast cancer who work to ensure that everyone that is diagnosed gets the support that they deserve. Breast Cancer Care has a community of nurses, volunteers and people affected by cancer that together, responded to 5.8 million counts of breast cancer support requests last year. Wozair bakers put their skills to the test at their Gillingham offices which resulted in a superb selection of sweet and savoury treats for the day. It was a great opportunity for staff to get together, have a chat and take a break with colleagues while supporting the 62,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer every year. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in contributing to the day which raised a total of £268 for this amazing cause. Thank you!

  • Production Begins at Appomattox

    Production Begins at Appomattox

    The Appomattox floating oil production system operated by Shell started production on Thursday 17th May, several months ahead of schedule. The development is a joint venture between Shell (79%) and CNOOC (21%) and is one of the largest projects to have recently launched in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform is expected to produce 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day from its position 80 miles southeast of the Louisiana coastline. Wozair manufactured a range of dampers and spares and offered various support services for Appomattox from September 2015 to December 2016, all of which were manufactured at their US facility in Houston, Texas. The factory, which opened in 2006, was one of four new manufacturing facilities that formed part of an international expansion by Wozair, who has since acquired two new businesses in the UK. Last year, Shell announced a new discovery near Appomattox that can be further drilled and developed through connections to the platform called the Dover discovery, which will prevent the need to build a new platform in the future. Since approving Appomattox in 2015, Shell has said that it achieved cost reductions of 40% as part of their commitment to drive down costs through efficiency improvements during execution. Wozair USA are pleased to have been part of the cost-saving project that has since led to new discoveries in the first large-scale production off the Gulf of Mexico.   Photo Credit : Shell

  • Time Lapse – Louvres Installation

    Time Lapse – Louvres Installation

    The Veotec Group are a UK based subsidiary of The Wozair Group with a strong presence in the USA. Here is a 10-minute time lapse of the Veotec Americas team installing their ESFH Fluid Heated Louvres at Augsburg University, Minnesota. SEFH fluid heated air intake louvers combine the superior water removal efficiency of Veotec SE1 vane separators with heat exchanger technology to de-ice the inlet and heat or chill the air stream. The anti-icing properties effectively removes snow, ice, hoarfrost, drift, fog, mist, and rain from the air stream. Snow bounces off and through most cold louvers, hoods, and drift eliminators until it finally builds up on the filters or on the eliminator. Veotec SEFH fluid heated louvers melt snow and prevent icing. Snow flakes instantly melt into water droplets where we effectively drain the coalesced droplets away. SEFH fluid heated louvers are optimally spaced for first stage water removal for inlets and filtration systems so there is no need for pre-filtration like normal coils. In many cases these louvers can be bolted in place of hoods. If required, the louvers can be sized to fit inside of most hoods. Inlets already using coils can benefit from an added boost in performance.

  • New Temporary Building

    New Temporary Building

    New temporary building provides more testing space at Wozair.

    Wozair has constructed a new temporary building situated in the lower section of the rear yard in Gillingham, following demand for more space after securing a large project. After a competitive tendering process, Warwickshire based Smart Space were appointed to build the temporary facility at the head offices, which now provides additional space for testing large Air Handling Units (AHU’s). AHU’s are designed to provide conditioned air that is filtered, cooled, heated, humidified or dehumidified according to customer requirements. Each unit must go through rigorous testing before it is packed and shipped to the client. Previously, the workshop had capacity for testing only one unit at a time. With the addition of the temporary building multiple units can now be tested simultaneously, resulting in shorter lead times. Wozair are thrilled to have had the option to extend their factory space to meet growing demand. Smart Space designed the 30m x 15m structure which stands 6m tall with a sloped roof providing extra height. The independently owned and British based company employs over 30 staff working closely with their customers to ensure all regulatory standards are met. Wozair initially planned to retain the unit for 3 months to assist with current projects; however, if demand for more space continues this may be extended.

  • BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor

    BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor

    Wozair Limited have been selected to manufacture Blast Protection Dampers for the Jules Horowitz Reactor (RHJ) which is currently under construction at Cadarache in Southern France. The RJH is a Material Test Reactor (MTR) named after the 20th century French nuclear scientist Jules Horowitz and is expected to begin operation in 2021. The reactors construction was recommended by ESFRI as a replacement for the European Union’s existing materials testing reactors, which were all built in the 1960’s, and are expected to reach the end of their service lives by 2020. Blast Tube Array (BTA) will be provided for the programme in both single and modular sizes of up to 2440W/1300H and 2500W/1000H. The dampers are located on the MVK and MVL backup networks between the external AHU and between the exhaust fans and external fans. Blast systems will also be included on the fresh air ducting and exhaust of cooling units EIS2. The Wozair BTA is a technical revolution in blast protection, addressing several technical challenges whilst providing improved safety and protection. Years of research and development have resulted in an elegant philosophy to wave attenuation that breaks down the blast overpressure in a static device. The result is a lower pressure drop, no moving parts and maintenance free operational lifetime in an extremely cost-efficient product. Wozair Limited will be providing full documentation in dual-language for the project to meet French standards with definition and follow up folders for quality, traceability and workers qualifications. Documentation for the qualification of the BTA under the project conditions will also be provided. Wozair are thrilled to be a part of the project which is the largest new platform for irradiation experiments in support of Generation II and III reactors, Generation IV technologies, and radioisotope production.

    Wozair (USA) Accreditation

    Wozair receive Buy American and Buy American accreditation at their USA facility in March this year

    Wozair are delighted to have received Buy America and Buy American accreditation in March this year at their USA facility, enabling them to bid and win their first project under this scheme for designing and manufacturing of bespoke heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) components for the Staten Island ferries in New York City. The project consists of manufacturing a range of Fire Dampers, Blast Dampers and Control Dampers for 3 x 320ft vessels. The compliance has created a host of opportunities for the company who also have manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, the USA as well as their primary base in the UK. The Buy America Act is the name for a group of domestic content restrictions that attach to specific funds administered by the American Department of Transportation (DOT) and is part of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982. Separate and distinct from the Buy America Act is the Buy American Act, passed in congress in 1933 which only applies to “federal” procurement. It does not apply to DOT funded state/local projects because, while the source of the money for those projects is federal, such purchases are not made directly by the federal government. Both Acts seek to increase transparency and ensure federal agencies prioritise purchase of American-made goods in compliance with the existing law. It enables Wozair to bid for jobs directly on the US government portal. The penalties for non-compliance are serious and include civil or criminal False Claims Act Violations, suspension or debarment. Wozair are currently bidding for a number of exciting projects under the legislation which they are hoping to win and expand their client portfolio.

  • Major Project

    Major Project

    Wozair has completed its latest project for the Arabian Gulf with the delivery of a Package Air Conditioner Unit (PACU) for a Total platform, a first for the international company. This exciting first major project with Total represents many more exciting things to come for Wozair, with the opportunity for many more units of this type in the future. The first unit was delivered to Abu Dhabi and built to exact specifications and requirements supplied by Total to withstand the extreme conditions that offshore platforms endure in the Middle East, including high temperature and humidity in a salt-laden atmosphere. These conditions would see other supplier’s standard units failing to achieve their required task of supplying clean, conditioned air. The unit was fully painted and designed to withstand +50°C and 100% humidity. Total, as a global integrated energy producer and supplier, knew that Wozair would be the ideal fit for the design of this unit. Total focus on delivering economic, social and environmental benefits with their products across 130 countries worldwide. This commitment was the reason that Total knew Wozair was the best fit for the job and was sure to provide something that not only worked but exceeded expectations. Chris Cherrington, Commercial Director, Wozair, says: "Our company was chosen to complete this project thanks to our reputation for delivering high-quality units that are designed to last, something we have been doing within this region for the past 20 plus years. We think this latest project further cements that we're willing to go the extra mile to achieve our client's goals and produce something that works every time. Even with the challenging conditions that our unit will face, we're more than confident that it can do the job – high-integrity HVAC is what we do." As a privately owned international HVAC equipment manufacturer, Wozair specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of a variety of HVAC products, including heavy-duty heating, ventilating and air conditioning products. They employ a full-time, highly skilled team to develop new products and improved systems to ensure they're always on the leading edge of the market while remaining fully compliant with all certifications and international requirements.
