Heat on the shop floor

Locomotive manufacturer in search of a heating system to heat its factory halls efficiently. Callens proved to be just the ticket!

A locomotive manufacturer was looking for a heating system to heat its factory halls efficiently. As you might have guessed, Callens proved to be just the ticket! To meet our customer’s exacting temperature and air velocity specifications, we opted for direct gas-fired hot air units in the assembly hall.

By combining these air handlers with textile extractor ducts, not only the heat on the shop floor is distributed evenly but our customer also ended up with a very efficient system to heat the place where the rail vehicles are assembled, inside and out.

Completed in: 2014
Output:  670kW
Efficiency:  90%
