Pegler Yorkshire givesa warm welcome to Breezair cooling
Temperatures in excess of 35°C on Pegler Yorkshire’s assembly line for radiator valves in Doncaster have been reduced by up to 13 K following the installation of Breezair evaporative cooling by CoSaf Environments.
This assembly line is housed in a modern, highly insulated building with roof glazing to admit daylight. It operates continuously for five days a week.
Even with fans to introduce and extract air from the assembly areas, internal and solar heat gains were having an adverse effect on the morale of the workforce — so senior technician Graham Shores decided to investigate various forms of cooling.
‘We trialled some Breezair mobile coolers and they worked well, so we made the decision to install Breezair coolers into the building housing the radiator-valve assembly line.’
Three Breezair coolers have been installed outside the building, which supply cooled air through ductwork to diffusers. Temperatures are controlled by a programmable regulator with four different control modes.
Graham Stores says, ‘Breezair evaporative cooling has provided a marked improvement in working conditions for our staff, and the coolers were extremely effective last summer.’
