Many warehouses are now suffering the effects of heat, particularly in areas where mezzanine floors have been built. Also many pharmaceutical products now need to be stored at temperatures below 250C to comply with the requirements of the MHRA. Previously this temperature has only been properly achieved and maintained using expensive refrigeration-based air conditioning systems because simple ventilation systems are not able to match this standard. EcoCooling can now offer a balanced evaporatively-cooled ventilation scheme which can ensure full compliance.
18 EcoCoolers were installed in a large pharmaceutical warehouse in Orleans France. The coolers were linked to a common control system which monitors temperature at multiple levels in the warehouse. A combination of ventilation, evaporative cooling and air throughput are regulated by an integral control system to meet temperature criteria.
EcoCooling was selected because of the greatly reduced capital cost. At approximately 25% of the installed cost of refrigeration-based cooling and less than 15% of the running cost substantial financial and environmental savings were offered by our system. A single EcoCooler, rated at 35KW, can show carbon savings up to 10,000kg per year and cost less than 15p per hour to run.
EcoCooling will provide detailed designs for projects which can typically be completed in less than one month. For further information and case studies visit our web site at www.ecocooling.org or telephone 01270 750988
