Keim Mineral Paints

“The system has made a huge difference to the conditions in the warehouse; it’s a much more pleasant area to work in, even on the coldest of days. We have been extremely pleased with the entire process and the service provided by Lindon and Powrmatic”

Project Background

Keim Mineral Paints are natural, water-borne silicate paints that produce a micro-porous coating that is both durable and waterproof while allowing the substrate to ‘breathe’. Given the complex formulation of the paints, the environmental conditions in the warehouse are critical to maintaining product quality. However, despite good thermal insulation, warehouse temperatures could fall dramatically in cold winters and the company had been using portable heaters to maintain acceptable temperatures for both staff and products.

Solution

Powrmatic has supplied two PTUL 35 radiant U-tube heaters to provide effective temperature control at Keim Mineral Paints’ warehouse in Telford. The units were specified and installed by Lindon Heating and Cooling.

Keim Managing Director David Pratt explained: “Keeping temperatures above 0ºC is critical for mineral paints, as once they have frozen they are unusable. The decision to install an internal heating system was an important one, taking into account the size of area and the cost to the business. The installation by Lindon was very straightforward, clean and well controlled”.

Result

The Powrmatic gas-fired radiant heaters have been installed at high level to provide direct heating of key areas of the warehouse while ensuring optimum energy efficiency.

Production Manager Kelvin Tanner added: “The system has made a huge difference to the conditions in the warehouse; it’s a much more pleasant area to work in, even on the coldest of days. We have been extremely pleased with the entire process and the service provided by Lindon and Powrmatic.”
