When you invest in industrial equipment, you need it to be as accurate as possible. In addition, when you create processes that utilise your equipment, you need to ensure that your employees are accountable for safety standards as well as accuracy. Hi! My name is Neil, and this blog is going to look at industrial equipment and supplies, and in particular, I plan to write about accuracy and accountability. I am a proud dad of two little boys. Currently, I work part-time while they are in nursery, and my beautiful wife is the full time worker in our home. I love our arrangement, and I especially enjoy that it gives me time to create things like this blog. I hope that you enjoy reading my posts.
On hot summer days, the temperature inside a warehouse can rise to a level that is dangerous to people, equipment and any goods stored inside. On top of that, the workers and machinery inside a warehouse can produce a lot of heat, which on a hot day can create an environment that is very hot and stuffy. Combat the heat-producing and heat-trapping effects of your warehouse with these five key tips.
1. Apply a Cooling Roof Coating
Many warehouses have metal roofs that soak up sunlight and cause the temperature inside to soar. By applying a reflective coating to your metal roof, you can reduce the amount of solar heat that enters your warehouse, therefore preventing overheating. According to SkyCool, the manufacturer of one such roof coating, applying an insulating coating to your roof can reduce warehouse temperature by as much as 20 degrees Celsius.
2. Maintain Your Air Conditioning System
If the air conditioning system in your warehouse is clogged up with dust, it can't cool the space efficiently. Contact local air conditioning services and book a maintenance check to ensure your air conditioning is working as well as possible. Air conditioning professionals can clean or replace filters, as well as check all other parts of the system, so you can be sure they are working well.
3. Use a Thermostat
Manually changing the settings on your air conditioning is an inefficient way to keep your warehouse cool. When you use a thermostat to set the temperature you want to maintain in your warehouse, your air conditioning system automatically adjusts itself to keep the space as close to this temperature as possible. That means there is no risk of the warehouse becoming too hot or too cold because someone forgot to adjust the air conditioning.
4. Use a Timer
Some warehouses need to maintain a carefully controlled temperature at all times because they store temperature-sensitive items. On the other hand, some warehouses only need to be cooled when workers are present. In this case, a timer can be very useful, as it can automatically turn on the air conditioning before the first worker arrives and turn it off again at the end of the day.
5. Use Energy-Efficient Fans to Move Air Around
Warehouses are typically very large spaces, which means that pockets of hot and cold air can develop if the air inside isn't moving. Use energy-efficient fans to create air currents inside the warehouse and bring all parts to the same temperature. The breezes that fans create can also make workers feel up to 12 degrees Celsius cooler, which could help to keep them comfortable and happy on hot summer days.Share
