Plant and Facilities Worker Cooling by Misting Systems
Each summer industrial and manufacturing plants across the United States and Canada find the temperatures in their facilities have reached excessive levels. This can be dangerous for the health of the plant workers and even life threatening. High-Pressure Misting Systems, High-Pressure Misting Fans and Evaporative Cooling Fans are very effective in combating heat related problems. These units can be placed anywhere throughout the plant and provide extensive cooling without wetness.
The goal for an industrial misting system is keep the facility workers safe from the heat and allow them the environment to stay cool and continue working. The factory or plant workers are a major asset to any manufacturing facility. Keeping their workers and technicians cool and safe is a good investment of the company’s resources.
Every year thousands of man-hours are wasted due to insufficient or non-existent industrial cooling or industrial misting systems. The manufacturing equipment in certain plants produces heat as a by-product of the process. For example, the production of aluminum results in temperatures routinely in the excess of 100 digress in parts of the plant that workers perform tasks. Misting and Evaporative Cooling Systems and Fans relieve this excessive heat by dropping the temperature up to 50 degrees in certain applications.
Other industries that create excessive heat in the fascinate of their workers include the steel industry, forging mills, foundries, chemical plants, oil refiners, battery factories, equipment manufacturing and anywhere with open ovens that let flames and heat into an open area. In most of these facilities and plants the use of simple industrial fans just is not sufficient. These industrial fans just end up blowing hot air throughout his plant and provide no real cooling.
Even if the facility is not generating its own heat in the manufacturing process, the heat of the summer is enough to require misting and cooling system that ensure the safety and comfort level of the workers. Warehouses, storage facilities, distribution centers, trucking companies and industrial condos all need cooling systems during the summer months.
The products below can be used to enhance any cooling of workers:
- Industrial Misting Fans
- Industrial Misting Line Systems
- Evaporative Cooling Fans
- Duct Delivery Misting Systems
- Stationary and Portable Cooling Stations
Misting and Cooling systems are available in a variety of sizes and designs to fit any application. These industrial misting systems can be designed to be either stationary or portable to provide the greatest variance in effectiveness. Also, automated controls can be attached which allow the system to turn on or off in different zones throughout the plant based on humidity and temperature in each area. Misting or cooling stations or zones can be located throughout the facility as an area workers can visit to revive and recover from the effects of excessive heat.
