Cooling Usage of High-Temperature Posts

The Giti plant in Fujian province invested a total of about RMB 1.5 million (USD 244,000) for installing water-cooled air conditioning and ventilation equipment in machine-operating posts of preparation and curing workshops, which not only improved the air quality in the workshop, but also reduced the temperature of on-site high temperature posts.

Sharing Best Practices & Experiences
