For hung sausage products storing it is necessary to provide the high air mobility in order to prevent dead spaces formation in the storeroom. Coolers ECO MIC with two-sided air outlet were applied in the sausage products storeroom to reach this purpose. Visualization of air treatment in the cooler is represented in Figure 5.2 – the warm untreated air enters from one (lower) side into the air duct, the treated cooled air is discharged from two sides of the cooler.
