Developed a solution which increased product life by balancing humidity and temperature.
Airius teamed up with HT LYONS to provide Cigars International’s Hamburg facility an evenly dispersed humidification answer. This retail behemoth features multiple levels and bars along with spaces for live music, pool tables, and many areas to enjoy stogies and a glass of scotch.
Because of its size, this beautiful location needed a system that provided an even disbursement of humidity thorough its enclosure to make sure their premium handmade cigars were always kept at the ideal humidity.
First, the heat was rising towards the ceiling, so HVAC efficiency needed to be optimized; the warm conditioned air needed to be fl owing down and out around the product consistently. Second, the humidification system wasn’t providing consistent levels of moisture throughout the store. This space is essentially a large humidor: a wood lined building trying to achieve a specific level of humidity to maintain product integrity. Our fans worked in concert with the humidification system to bring the warm, humid air from the ceiling and evenly distribute it throughout the space.
Thanks to their controlled airflow, a series of Q-50 fans were easy to mount where it would not disturb customers, so the only thing they noticed were the cigars.
THEY HAD TO LOWER THE
The proprietor of Foodie’s Markets, a 3-store, family-owned, grocery chain in Massachusets, liked his irst Airius installaion so much that he came back for seconds.
Foodie’s irst installed 8 Model 15 Air Pears in 2015 in their South Boston store. Managers were so pleased with the destraiicaion efects for customers and employees that they installed another system of 7 Model 15 fans in their Duxbury, MA store.
Even during the cold Massachusets winter that followed, employees asked that the heat be lowered…twice! Circulaing the hot air from the 14 t. ceilings helped balance temperatures between the manager’s oice on the mezzanine, which was too hot, and near the checkout counters and entrances, which were too cold.
Fans installed above the open-case freezers delivered warmer air to shoppers without disruping the cool air inside the freezers. Keeping shoppers, employees, managers, and the store’s HVAC systems happy, Airius shows once again the beneits of destraiicaion.
