Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2009, Vol. 81 Issue 11, p9
The article presents the author's view on the temperature of working areas in paint-preparation, forge plant and warehouse. He recommends that for paint-preparation and warehouse areas the air must get in and be dispersed 10 feet above the floor and for forge plant, 30 inches above the floor due to high temperature in the area. He also advocates the installation of evaporative cooler (EC) in the working areas to minimize the heat temperature.
