Panasonic Ecology Systems has been tackling Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) improvement for many years. As well as dealing with ventilation and dehumidification, the Company has pursued achieving quality living environments through providing pleasant air flow and smell. Their market leading product range includes ventilation fans, kitchen hoods, air cleaners, and roof fans, and is also available in many countries in Southeast Asia. To design and develop the equipment needed to facilitate such environments, highly advanced technology and expertise are required. Cradle CFD has been an innovation that brought significant improvement to their design evaluation process. To help them with product development, Cradle CFD has been in use and “has played a vital role in the process,” according to Mr. Masahiro Shigemori, Chief of Ventilation Technology Development Division, Thermo-Fluid Development Department, R&D Head Office (Picture).
