Evaporative spot cooling solves overheating problem in furniture component factory

Using a Breezair evaporative cooler to provide spot cooling for this area in the factory of BLP UK has solved the problem of temperatures in the area reaching 38°C.
With temperatures in the cutting area of BLP UK, a volume manufacturer of MDF wrapped profiles and membrane press cabinet doors, exceeding an ambient temperature of 23°C by 15 K, industrial heating and cooling company Air Plants recommending a Breezair evaporative cooler to improve thermal comfort. BLP is one of the largest bespoke volume manufacturers of vinyl pressed kitchen, bedroom and bathroom cabinet doors in the world. The doors are made using a vinyl membrane foil, which is heated to facilitate cutting. Following a site survey, Air Plants suggested that a single Breezair cooler would be able to provide spot cooling for the operators, rather than trying to cool the whole area. The cooler has been installed on the side wall of the building, venting cool air into the cutting area to provide operators with a much cooler environment and the benefit of humidified air. Works manager David White, says, ‘Our operators not only have to cut out the doors, but then they have to lift and stack them, which is very hot work. Spot cooling has proved extremely successful and far more cost effective than cooling the whole area.’
