How to heat an industrial warehouse?

Most of the industrial buildings in Spain have an area of ​​between 200m2 and 600m2 and with minimal or non-existent insulation, basically they were not designed with a minimum of thermal comfort in mind, in short they require an industrial heating system.

In addition, Spanish legislation specifies the minimum health and safety provisions forcing minimum comfort temperatures of 14 to 17ºC depending on the type of activity, it is the employer′s obligation to seek solutions to heat workplaces that do not comply with this Requirement, one of the most used options is the use of diesel hot air generators, gas wall heaters or wood burning stoves.

MET MANN, as manufacturers of hot air generators with more than 50 years of history, study the best solution to heat industrial buildings efficiently, economically and ecologically.

Those responsible for occupational risk prevention, maintenance technicians or directly managers, are presented with the following questions:


How can we heat a 600m2 industrial warehouse?
There are several industrial heating systems, hot water boilers with a fan coil or air heater system, gas radiant tubes, gas or electric radiant panels and hot air generators.


What is the best solution to heat an industrial warehouse?
    - If we do not have natural gas, gas radiant systems are discarded
    - If the warehouse is open-plan it makes little sense to place a boiler, since regulations require you to have a boiler room, in addition, the cost of the equipment and heat distribution systems is much higher
    - If the electrical power of the building is used by other equipment around 80% or more, it will be difficult to have the power to use electric heating systems.

In summary, the best option is air heaters or rather industrial hot air generators.


What types of fuels can we use?
The fuel used in industrial heating systems is usually diesel or gas, but at MET MANN, in addition to these fuels we can offer pellet or wood heating equipment.


What fuel consumption will I have?
In the case of a 600m2 warehouse, you can have approximate thermal needs of about 140 kW, the estimated daily consumption of diesel would be about 67 liters.
