Description of the industrial air curtain for the Menken Salads
In order to reduce energy loss during the day, Menken Salads has chosen to make use of the various applications of a high-pressure industrial air curtain. High-pressure air curtains are a suitable solution for reducing the energy consumption in both cold stores and freezer rooms. The high-pressure industrial air curtain were delivered and installed by the company Air In Motion. Due to the unique functioning of the high-pressure industrial air curtain (AFIM® Air Doors), the temperature in the cold stores and freezer rooms are easily maintained even during the warm summer months.
Benefits of the industrial air curtain for the Menken Salads
The advantage of a high-pressure industrial air curtain at a cold storage is that logistically speaking, a lot of time is saved. Furthermore, virtually no cold is lost to the adjacent areas during transport through the passageway. This last benefit is directly visible in the temperature charts and thus in the amount of energy consumed. Menken Salads is very happy with this solution for its various cold stores and freezer rooms.
