Consultation &


At Ecogate, we specialize in providing consultation and engineering services for industrial exhaust ventilation systems. With over 25 years of experience, we have established ourselves as the industry leader in designing energy-efficient systems.

Industry Leaders

Data-Driven Design

Our team of expert engineers has evaluated and measured hundreds of ventilation systems globally, ranging from small shops to large manufacturing facilities. By analyzing the data from these reports and observing the mistakes made in actual factories, we have developed a comprehensive set of design best practices.


Our services include traditional and on-demand ventilation systems, ensuring that we can cater to a wide range of industrial needs. We use the latest technology and cutting-edge techniques to design systems that promote energy efficiency. As global demands for manufacturers and supportive government initiatives evolve, customers are increasingly embracing the concept of utilizing less energy and minimizing CO2 emissions.


Partnering with Ecogate helps you achieve this, ensuring that your industrial ventilation system is designed to the highest standards.


Design of New Industrial Ventilation Systems


Specializing in the design of custom ventilation systems, Ecogate tailors solutions to meet your current needs while anticipating future requirements. Our team of experienced engineers can help you avoid common mistakes that can lead to unbalanced duct systems, improper drop air velocities, and fan system errors - which even the biggest factories fall victim to.


We take a comprehensive approach to designing your ventilation system, including calculating design air volume, selecting optimal locations for dust collectors and fans, and designing an optimized duct layout. Our best practice for duct design results in lower pressure losses, and shorter, less expensive duct systems. Because fan power is divided between generating pressure and moving air, the same fan can exhaust a higher air volume. We'll also recommend the best dust collector and fan for your specific needs.


Once we've collected all necessary measurements, we'll provide you with a detailed report that includes calculations, drawings, and plain English explanations of our options and recommendations. Additionally, we'll provide a Safety Features Proposal that includes spark detection systems, no return valves, and fire suppression systems to ensure the safety of your facility.

Industrial Ventilation System Optimization Services


We understand that not every facility needs a brand new industrial ventilation system. That's why we offer a comprehensive optimization service to help you get the most out of your existing system.


Our expert engineers will visit your facility to conduct an on-site assessment and take precise measurements of key ventilation values, including drops, branches, main duct air velocities, air volumes, pressure losses, and fan consumption measured by power analyzers.


With this data, we can answer crucial questions about your current system's efficiency, such as how much air volume the system should exhaust, how much it's currently exhausting, the total fan pressure, and how much energy it's currently using.


If you're interested in our On-Demand System, we can also evaluate how much air volume the system will exhaust if it only ventilates to machines that are cutting material and how much energy the system will save with an Ecogate System by evaluating workstations’ Active Utilization.


Our engineers will check the fan operating point and compare it to the fan curve to calculate potential savings, assess the dust collector design values against real ventilating values, and ensure that all necessary safety systems are in place.


As part of our optimization service, we'll provide you with a real duct system layout drawing, along with detailed calculations and drawings that include plain English explanations of our options and recommendations.

Review of Existing System

Standard Duct Layout

Many traditional duct systems are designed with unnecessary complexity, featuring numerous turns and unnecessary pressure losses. Unfortunately, these design flaws can drive up the total cost of ownership by forcing the fan to consume more power over years of operation.


Optimized Duct Layout

Our optimized system layouts have shorter ducts, fewer turns, and lower pressure losses, which reduces electricity consumption by your factory's fan. Since the fan typically uses the biggest motor in a factory, this leads to significant savings that are immediately noticeable.


Upgrade Proposals


After a thorough evaluation of your existing industrial ventilation system, we can offer you several options to optimize its performance. Depending on our findings, we may suggest systems consolidation, partial duct system redesign, and installation of an on-demand system.


Incorporating our services during the planning stages of your factory expansion could be your best financial decision. Increasing your system's capacity will require a capital investment, but our recommendations will take into consideration your system's capacity with a smart controller. As explained in our video, an on-demand system only directs suction to workstations with active utilization, allowing your fan to handle more workstations as not all will be in use simultaneously.


You may believe that your system needs suction at all or most of your workstations because they're in use most of the day, but you're likely overestimating. We've worked with thousands of maintenance managers who have made this same assumption. Check out this article where we share our experience and explain why overestimating can cost you more than necessary.

Energy Savings & Carbon Reduction Evaluation


Corporate customers are increasingly looking to reduce their carbon footprint, and Ecogate's smart controls for industrial ventilation systems make it a significant contributor in achieving this goal. Our systems can save an average of 68% of electricity compared to a traditional dust collection system (you can see the comparison to traditional systems here).


Our Energy Savings & Carbon Reduction Evaluation can show you the potential yearly savings and incentives available when you add our smart controls to your existing system. We conduct on-site measurements and calculate proposed electricity savings, and our precise DataMining technology is built into our system to make post-installation savings evaluation easy. The accuracy of our report is so precise that  utilities accept our data for savings evaluation, making the process even smoother.

Engineer Site Visit


Our single site visits are an ideal solution for customers who need help with system tune-ups, recalibrations, or troubleshooting, but do not have an ecoCARE plan (Plus or Platinum). With our comprehensive knowledge of dust collection, fume extraction, and oil & mist extraction systems, we can provide the technical assistance you need to set up and keep your system running efficiently.


Our on-site support is especially valuable for customers who have recently purchased a used Ecogate system and require expert help in setting it up. We also offer hands-on training to your maintenance staff during our visit, ensuring that your team is equipped with the knowledge and skills to use your Ecogate system to its fullest potential.


Don't let a lack of understanding hold you back from experiencing the full benefits of your on-demand industrial ventilation system. Contact Ecogate today to schedule an engineer site visit and get the expert assistance you need to optimize your system's performance.

Ecogate Technology Training


We understand that our cutting-edge technology can be simple but overwhelming. That's why we offer Ecogate Training to help you fully understand how our smart controls for dust collection, fume extraction, and oil & mist extraction systems work, as well as how to troubleshoot any issues that may arise.


Our user interface is designed to be user-friendly, but with so many advanced features, it's easy to overlook key functionality. Our comprehensive training program covers all the bells and whistles, ensuring that you get the most out of our technology.


Whether you need training for a single manager or a group, our technical training is tailored to meet your specific needs. We offer the same high-quality training to our dealers during their onboarding process, so you can be sure that you're getting the most up-to-date information and expertise.


Invest in your team's skills and knowledge with Ecogate Training, and ensure that your industrial ventilation systems are running at peak performance and efficiency.
