Sil-Mid Limited is a distributor of silicones, sealants, adhesives, lubricants, cleaning agents, and surface treatments for a range of specialist applications. The temperature in the warehouse is therefore important for maintaining optimum condition of the stock as well as ensuring comfort for staff.
A Suspended warm air heaters and destratification fans from Powrmatic, specified and installed by Heatserv Solutions Ltd, are helping to ensure optimum temperatures at Sil-Mid’s warehouse in Coleshill, West Midlands.
“The warehouse was getting too cold in the winter so we were asked to propose a solution that resolve this issue effectively while minimising energy consumption and carbon emissions,” recalled Heatserv’s Mark Knibbs. “Having carried out a site survey we identified that a suspended warm air heating system would provide the most efficient distribution of warm air through the warehouse racking,” he added.
Heatserv has now installed two Powrmatic NVx suspended warm air heaters, supplemented by destratification fans to increase energy efficiency by preventing warm air stagnating in the roof space. The heating is controlled by a Powrmatic Powrtrol controller providing both timer and thermostatic control.
“We selected Powrmatic units as offering the best mix of performance and value, as well as their high level of reliability,” Mark Knibbs concluded.
