Warm-air delivers efficient heating for warehouse

Effective heating throughout this warehouse of Senator International is provided by a Powrmatic air-rotation heater.

A Powrmatic 500 kW air-rotation heater is delivering efficient heating at Senator International’s warehouse in Lancashire. The system for the company, which is a major manufacturer of office furniture in the UK, was designed by HVAC installer CK Services 1990 Ltd.

The TE61 air-rotation heater uses axial fans to move large volumes of air through the space at relatively low temperatures, typically recycling the air in the space every 30 min. Their ability to maintain setpoint temperatures is not affected by the layout of the space, making them ideal for warehouses.

Andy Smith of CK explains, ‘We needed to give Senator a heating system that would maintain suitable environmental conditions for staff and warehouse stock, while minimising energy consumption and carbon emissions. It was clear that a Powrmatic TE air-rotation heater would meet these criteria more effectively than a distributed warm-air or radiant system. Using a single free-standing air rotation heater also helped to reduce installation and ongoing lifecycle costs.’

The heater is controlled by the BMS.
