Al Fardan’s partner Enervex were chosen to supply a fan exhaust system at the Burj Khalifa to ensure correct heating and draught of the Boiler Exhaust Chimney system.
This mixed-use tower features the world’s first Armani Hotel Dubai and Armani Residences, alongside corporate suites, residences, retail and leisure facilities. The Burj Khalifa Tower is the centre of Downtown Dubai, a 500-acre mega-development by Emaar Properties.
At 828 metres (2,716 feet), the Burj Khalifa has already achieved the distinction of being the world’s tallest structure.
Enervex designed and supplied six (6) demand-controlled inline mechanical draft systems for the building’s water heaters and steam boilers. The many heating appliances are exhausted via six chimney flues – each with an integrated RSIB mechanical draft system. The chimney flues are mostly running horizontally through the building and terminate to the outside via sidewalls and through the ground for aesthetics.
The mechanical draft systems also provide some ventilation to the mechanical room by maintaining an air exhaust rate while controlling the chimney flue draft as well as the combustion air intake.
