One of the major sources of heat gain in refrigerated storage rooms is the infiltration of warm ambient air through doorways. Air curtains reduce this amount of heat transfer by blowing a plane air jet in the doorway while allowing an easy passage of the traffic. An air curtain device installed at the doorway of a cold room in a supermarket was studied in detail. Thermographic images were taken, recording the temperature field across the doorway. Tracer gas decay measurements were used to… CONTINUE READING
