Evaporative cooling solves overheating problem for PZ Cussons
Temperatures of 30 to 35°C in a 6000 m2 factory producing liquid soaps have been reduced to 20 to 25°C following the installation of Breezair evaporative coolers by Cosaf. PZ Cussons needed a solution for its overheating production areas and summertime solar gain, and Cosaf was chosen to design, supply and install a low-energy, low-carbon cooling system to overcome the problem of an uncomfortable working environment.
The installation comprises 24 roof-mounted Breezair units, which are claimed to use 80% less energy than standard air conditioning. They operate on 100% fresh air.
Karl Sullivan, a director with Cosaf, says, ‘Many local authorities, public-sector organisations, educational establishments and major corporations are now looking to Breezair to meet their environmental policies and are already benefiting from the improvements in performance and reductions in running costs.’
