MACS-imize Energy Savings

MACS Coolers use less energy than conventional precooling tunnels.

Electric Usage (40-50% less)

  • Fans

    • Shorter, more even airflow paths
    • Automatic variable speed cycles
    • Shorter run times due to faster precooling
  • Refrigeration

    • More effective heat transfer due to reversing air flow
    • Cold air goes directly to the warm product instead of mixing with room air
    • Less fan heat to remove due to shorter run times
    • Less warm air entering the building through door openings
    • Less forklift heat entering building
    • Less building space to keep cool
