Topics: Case Studies

The Brief:

Pegler’s radiator valve assembly line is housed in a modern, highly insulated facility fitted with roof glazing to provide natural daylight. Working on a 24/5-shift system, the 20-strong workforce assembles manual and thermostatic radiator valves for commercial and domestic use.

Despite installing air input and extraction fans in the assembly area, during the summer months heat generated on the factory floor and from the roof lights, which had an adverse effect on the workforce’s morale. Looking after the well being of their staff is a top priority for Pegler and together with the knowledge that an unhappy workforce has an impact on production, Senior Maintenance Technician, Graham Shores decided to investigate various forms of cooling.

Our Solution:

Three Evaporative Cooling Technology coolers were installed outside the building, with air being distributed via ductwork then through air diffusers into the assembly line area to provide temperature relief. Temperatures are controlled by solid-state programmable regulator, which provides four different control modes.

An innovatively designed, aerodynamic fan provides a constant, even flow of air over the pads to provide a welcome cool breeze with minimal noise and low energy consumption. Other pioneering components include a highly efficient water pump that guarantees constant and reliable cooling when most needed, and a long lasting variable speed motor that gives maximum comfort level control. Temperatures in excess of 35°C have been reduced by up to 13°C to provide the workforce with a cooler and more pleasant working environment.

The Results:

“We looked at air conditioning but immediately decided that was too expensive to install, maintain and run and compared to evaporative cooling there was no contest. Cosaf provided us with a competitive price and as an established company with an expert knowledge on evaporative cooling we knew they were a company we could rely on.
