Keeping your head cool is not just a simple phrase in heat treatment business. With furnaces running at nearly 1100 °C (2012 °F) and shop floor temperatures soaring up to 50 °C (122 °F), it does not make your job any easier. At Aalberts surface technologies in Venlo a cooling system is in operation since July 22nd of this year.
It is based on the adiabatic principle. This is a thermodynamic process of reducing heat by evaporating water. The state change from liquid to gas results in an energy transfer in the form of heat. Heat exchange of warm air occurs when it flows through a piping system. Humid evaporated air passes over the exterior of this system and will absorb the heat and cool the air within.
Efficient and at very low costs, the temperature can be reduced by up to 10° C pending on room temperature, air pressure and humidity.
This system will make a contribution to the sustainable employability of our employees.
