Portable HVAC equipment manufacturer Denso Corp. has a new guide for using its MovinCool products.

“Using Portable Spot Air Conditioners in Industrial Applications: Cooling People, Processes and Equipment,” is an eight-page guide available as a PDF download at www.movincool.com/industrial.

“Overheating of people, processes or equipment in heat-dense areas of a manufacturing plant or other industrial facility can have disastrous effects on productivity,” said company spokesman David Keller. “A building’s central air-conditioning system cannot always eliminate these kinds of hot spots, and traditional solutions such as electric fans or evaporative coolers have serious drawbacks.”

The guide extols the benefits of self-contained air-conditioning units such as those sold by MovinCool. Originally designed to be used in factories, the equipment is now suitable for a variety of situations, company officials say.
