CONVECTIVE SPOT-COOLING OF HOT WORKING ENVIRONMENTS.

Author(s) : OLESEN B. W., NIELSEN R.

Summary

THE AUTHORS DEAL WITH CONVECTIVE SPOT-COOLING, IE USING INDIVIDUAL AIR JETS AT EACH WORK STATION. THERMAL STRESS DECREASES, BUT ANOTHER DISCOMFORT MAY ARISE DUE TO THE AIR VELOCITY. STUDIES SHOW THAT THE TOLERANCE TO THE THERMAL ENVIRONMENT INCREASES BUT THAT IT DEPENDS ON THE AVERAGE AND MAXIMUM AIR VELOCITY AT THE WORK STATION. AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 3 M/S AND A MAXIMUM LOWER THAN A VELOCITY OF 4 M/S ARE RECOMMENDED.
