Your building is hot.
Maybe it’s a showroom with wide floor to ceiling glass, or perhaps you’re in a factory with machines generating heat 24/7. Both can be a problem, especially during warm summer months.
But Briggs Burners can help.
Our evaporative cooling solutions will keep your customers cool and also make sure your staff are comfortable to work.
Even a large floor plan is no problem. That’s because our range of coolers are designed to use less power than an air conditioning unit, while still efficiently cooling large areas. Read on to find out how.
How does an evaporative cooler work?
Traditional air conditioners use either compression or refrigeration coils which spike energy bills. But an evaporative cooler uses the natural process of evaporation to cool air, because water absorbs heat in order to evaporate.
So the hot, stale air in your building is drawn into a cooling unit by a fan. The hot air then passes its heat to the water and exits the unit as cool air.
They don’t use harmful CFCs and you won’t suffer from the dry air that is usually generated by an air conditioning unit.
Process cooling for manufacturing
Do you make products that need cooling? Or your manufacturing process produces a lot of heat that needs venting.
You’ve come to the right place.
Not only are Briggs Burners experienced in process heating, we’ve also helped a number of businesses install cooling systems for their manufacturing process.
How we helped one company cool their staff and print factory.
Our client operates printing machines 24 hours a day, which gives off a lot of heat.
As you can imagine, this is beneficial in winter, but not in the summer months when production, productivity and staff welfare all suffered.
In addition, the poorly insulated building led to solar heat gain with a lack of air movement. This all combined to make an uncomfortable working environment.
The staff were struggling.
So one of our heating engineers attended a site visit.
They did a thorough assessment of the premises, then designed and installed the following solution.
We installed 2 EcoCooling evaporative cooling units on wall brackets on the exterior of the building. These coolers discharge fresh cool air locally, where it is needed, by two ranges of ductwork. The fact that this air is humid is a particular advantage, as very dry air is not beneficial to the printing process.
Two extract ventilation fans were also installed to ensure a good air change rate within the building.
The customer received an interest-free loan from the Carbon Trust for the installation.
