To provide cooling to a large machine shop where airborne fumes were generated as part of the machining process, prohibiting the use of recirculated air conditioning.
The high cooling load from solar and internally generated heat required a large cooling capacity. This was provided by installing a single CW-160 that delivers 11,800 l/s (25,000 cfm) into the machine shop via ducts arranged internally, across one wall of the building. Exit paths for the warmed air were installed on the opposite side of the building, allowing the fresh cool air to purge away the contaminated air from the processes. The CW-160 operates with a COP of around 8.0 (EER = 27.3) in summer.
