A comfy solution

Published:  03 March, 2007

The cooling of two large mezzanine floors at the Clarks Shoes warehouse in Somerset was solved using EcoCooling evaporative coolers.  A total of 12 coolers, providing up to 400KW of cooling capacity, were installed as part of a cross flow ventilation scheme.

Because of increased demand and expansion overseas, Clarks has built a new distribution centre at its Somerset HQ.

Two mezzanine floors totalling 11,000mē form the main picking area and operating conditions here were proving uncomfortable for personnel.

The top discharge coolers were installed in four banks of three to feed the two mezzanine levels. The five speed EcoCoolers can run in either ventilation or cooling modes. Each cooler is controlled by a combined Hygro-thermostat which automatically sets the fan speed and the cooling mode. The EcoCoolers are linked to the fire alarm system to provide automatic shut down.
