Abstract

A study of the effects of air movement within a complex factory building is described. Air conditioning systems operated to alleviate discomfort in some parts of the factory, and to satisfy product requirements in another. The interaction of the various air conditioning systems and potential overcapacity were considered to offer scope for improvement. Environmental investigations included the use of a tracer gas to examine air transfers. It was concluded that air transfers between adjacent partitioned areas were low, enabling the adoption of a more sophisticated control strategy which would reduce the demand for conditioned air.
