An air conditioning system is arguably one of the most important pieces of equipment in an industrial facility. Read on to find out why.
It protects materials from heat-induced damage
A huge number of industrial facilities make use of temperature-sensitive materials which can be destroyed by excess heat. The quality of pharmaceuticals, food and drink, for example, can all be negatively affected by high temperatures, as harmful bacteria and fungi tend to thrive in warm environments.
Engineering plastics refer to plastic materials that have been enhanced to have a higher mechanical as well as thermal performance. This makes them much stronger than regular plastic that is used for commodities such as polyethene or PVC, which are used in the manufacture of plastic bottles, plastic containers and more. Since engineering plastics have enhanced performance, they tend to be more expensive than their conventional counterparts are. As such, they are produced in smaller quantities and are used for applications such as bearings and other mechanical parts.
