ARBS 2012 Young Achiever of the Year

The ARBS 2012 Young Achiever of the Year has been announced last night at a gala dinner at the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne.

Acoustic expert Daniel Tan Teng Yeow was employed by Fantech as an acoustic product specialist after graduating in 2006.
 
One of Daniel’s first projects was to assess the potential of impulse technology using JetVent products for the Australian market. While used widely in European carparks, impulse fans had not been used in Australia for a number of reasons, including legislative requirements (Eurpoean legislation focuses on fire and smoke prevention, while Australian legislation is more focused on preventing the build up of dangerous emissions). 
 
Daniel researched the Australian legislative requirements and undertook a lengthy analysis and testing process to ensure that the fans kept the accumulation of poisonous exhaust fumes beow acceptable limits. Daniel’s research led to the implementation of impulse fans in Australian carparks, delivering significant construction cost savings from the reduced need for ducting and plenums.
 
Daniel has also contributed heavily to the development and delivery of Fantech’s technical training programs, designed to help engineers working in the industry develop a better understanding of fan types and fan legislation.
 
Constructing an acoustic test rig compliant with ISO 7235:2003 was an Australian first that Daniel achieved. This supports silencer testing against the latest international standards.
