Main Pain Points of Standard Filtration Suppliers 

  • In many cases, standard equipment works totally fine. We believe that when industrial processes become larger and more complex, a tailor-made solution becomes a necessity. The main issues related to Standard Equipment Suppliers are:  
  • Over-extraction 
  • Under-extraction 
  • Cross contamination 
  • Wasting resources 
  • Higher Energy Costs 
  • Trial & Error after commissioning 
  • Higher Maintenance costs 
  • Risk of downtime due to unpredicted clogging, cleaning, maintenance 

At JOA, we ensure that every system is designed, built, and implemented to meet the highest standards and your specific needs. From initial design through to final commissioning, our expert team manages every detail with precision. Experience the benefit of having all services from consultancy to commissioning under one roof. 

What is Air Technical Modeling? 

Modeling, particularly in air technical simulations, is a critical process used to design, optimize, and ensure the efficiency of industrial dust collection and vapor extraction systems. By using advanced simulation software, we can predict and enhance the system’s performance, making installations more effective and reducing the need for post-implementation adjustments. Internally the Air Technical Modeling software is called ‘GCM’ (Graphical Computational Modeling) as it calculates and visualizes air flows. 

Air Technical Modeling is a comprehensive, data-driven solution designed to simulate and validate designs for industrial dust and vapor extraction systems. It uses a combination of calculations, factory measurements, and pre-engineering inputs to generate accurate simulations. Examples of elements that may be included in the modeling software during the Pre-Engineering phase may include:  

  • Extraction capabilities 
  • Optimal Duct Routings 
  • Equipment layout 
  • Temperatures and Relative Humidity 
  • Equipment like filters, scrubbers, cyclones, valves, fans, hoods, heaters, chillers, carousels and piping.  

By using Air Technical Modeling, we are able to provide better concept designs and a high reliability on future performance of our systems. The ‘Proven Process’ we follow allows for balanced, stable, and efficient systems that minimize risks and unexpected setbacks during realization and operation. 

No operator likes to work in a dusty environment

How Air Technical Modeling Benefits Your Extraction Systems: 

  • Pre-Engineering Insights: Data-driven modeling, lab results, and factory measurements contribute to the design of economic, long-lasting systems with a meaningful process guarantee. Modeling is an important part of Pre-Engineering Studies where advanced calculations (Flow rate, temperature, energy recovery potential, etc.) are combined with a thorough advice, concept design and budget quotation. 
  • Scenario Management: The software allows for scenario management, preventing overdesign and minimizing fluctuations, resulting in stable extraction systems. The software integrates detailed data from the pre-engineering phase to model the entire extraction system. 
  • Visualization and Automation: Offers sophisticated visualization options that help in understanding system dynamics and automating design requirements for precise implementation. It helps showing capacity and pressure of fan requirements, plot velocities (together with CFD Modeling), capacities and temperatures and quickly shows system requirements.  
  • Performance from Commissioning: Our solutions eliminate the need for post-commissioning optimization, reducing downtime, maintenance and cleaning intervals. It prevents trial & error and ensures balanced extraction systems from the start. 

Balanced Extraction Systems leads to Healthy Work Environments, Explosion Safety and smooth operations 

JOA Air Solutions recognizes the importance of stable, reliable extraction systems for both operational efficiency and workplace safety. Dust and vapor emissions pose health hazards to operators and increase the risk of corrosion and downtime. By using Air Technical Modeling, efficient and balanced extraction systems can be designed, addressing these challenges comprehensively.

If your operation needs optimized and balanced extraction systems, contact us today to learn how JOA Air Solutions can make the difference between knowing what to expect and hoping for the best. 


  1. Q. Can I make use of your Air Technical Modeling tool myself?  

    A. Unfortunately, we do not allow access to this technology. This in-house developed software is crucial for our operations. Also, it only works well in combination with measurements, experienced engineers and a thorough understanding of your process in combination with knowledge of emission control.  

  2. Q. How is Air Technical Modeling related to your other services? 

    A. The start of almost every challenge that we face, begins with a Pre-Engineering Study. During this study, we gather data and take measurements. This is input for Air Technical Modeling that will identify bottlenecks and opportunities for improvement. Next to the early phase, we use Air Technical to validate the concept design proposed in the Pre-Engineering Study and during the Design & Engineering phase afterwards.   

  3. Q. How does Air Technical Modeling benefit industrial manufacturing companies? 

    A. Air Technical Modeling offers multiple benefits for industrial manufacturing companies, including: 
    – Accurate simulations: Ensuring balanced and efficient extraction systems. 
    – Scenario management: Allowing various configurations to be tested, preventing overdesign and ensuring optimal equipment setups. 
    – Comprehensive visualization: Providing detailed plots for each section of the system, including velocities, capacities, and temperatures, along with piping lists and equipment placements. 
    – Time and cost efficiency: Ensuring first-time right implementation, reducing downtime, maintenance intervals, and cleaning costs. 

  4. Q. What industries benefit the most from Air Technical Modeling? 

    A. Air Technical Modeling is particularly beneficial for industries such as Food Production, Consumer Goods, and Chemicals. In these industries, dust and vapor extraction systems are crucial for both operational efficiency and workplace safety. The modeling ensures balanced extraction systems that minimize health risks, improve process reliability, and prevent downtime due to equipment failure or pollution buildup. 

  5. Q.  How does Air Technical Modeling help with long-term system reliability? 

    Air Technical Modeling ensures long-term reliability by: 
    – Providing precise designs: Which are based on comprehensive data, ensuring balanced extraction systems from commissioning.
