Cellar Manager Plus Airflow
The Combined Cellar Manager and Airflow free air system works on two principals:
2. When the outside temperature drops below 10 degrees, the Airflow fan will automatically start bringing in cold air from outside, chilling the cellar.
1. That the beer in the beer kegs increases in temperature at a much slower rate than the surrounding cellar air temperature.
The combined control unit then monitors the influences on the cellar, such as the internal and external temperatures, door positions etc and then controls the main cellar cooler by switching it off and on as required. This maintains the beer temperature at 12 degrees, not the surrounding air temperature and optimises the cellar cooler power usage. The resultant year round energy savings have been proved to be in the region of £1,200 to £1,300 per annum, depending on the cooler size and the condition and operation of the cellar.
• Automatically turns off the outdoor condenser in high cost energy periods.
• Brings fresh air into the cellar.
• Can evacuate heat or CO2 gasses if required.
• Reduces the noise pollution by turning off the outdoor condenser unit, especially at night.
• Has an option to be linked to the cellar door so an alarm will sound if the door is left open for longer than an hour.
• Monitors and checks the cellar and external temperatures every 15 seconds.
• Visual indicators show the cellar condition. If the cellar gets too warm the Cellar Manager will bring on the main cooling unit until the correct temperature is restored.
