Glass Mfg Boiler Room | Mexico

The boiler room in this glass plant was getting so hot that the air compressor was shutting down. It simply could not operate at such high temperatures.

Ingersoll Rand, the company that made the air compressor, contacted Moffitt on Fevisa Industrial's behalf. They needed help in figuring out how to lower temperatures in the room and achieve a safe operating temperature without using air conditioning.

Moffitt installed a large natural ventilator to help with warm air exhaust and twelve adiabatic evaporative natural cooling units to introduce cooler air into the plant.

RESULTS

In the end the new system was so effective that it actually made the interior of the plant cooler than the temperature outside. This is a feat that is unheard of in compressor buildings. The hybrid ventilation system, using natural ventilators and natural adiabatic cooling, was the key to making it possible.

Project Summary

  • Twelve (12) adiabatic natural cooling units
  • One (1) 10.5’ x 160’ low-profile natural ventilator
