Reducing Energy Losses At Logistic Facilities

  1. 1. Reduce energy losses at logistic facilities Sébastien Leichtnam General Manager
  2. 2. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com The problem Many temperature-controlled facilities have much higher energy consumption than is necessary. With the right know-how and fairly simple solutions, energy consumption can be dramatically reduced – a benefit to both you and the environment.

  4. 4. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com Open door with truck Energy lossTime
  5. 5. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com Open door, no truck Energy lossTime
  6. 6. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com SECTION SECTION Reduce energy losses at dock bay? The equipment configuration 3 things to consider: The leveller If you have the place the best solution is of course the load-house- But sometimes it is not possible due to too lack of place in front of the dock the alternative is Isodock.
  7. 7. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com SECTION Your building seen from the Top If that is not the case you will have to have your dock leveller inside the building You can install a load-house if the distance between building and the fence is more than 2X the length of a truck

  14. 14. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com •Mechanical shelter with corner seals Two types of shelter •Airbag shelter Seals 20% better than no shelter Seals 20% better than the mechanical shelter Leakage and air flow drive costs An adapted and well maintained dock shelter can save as much as 90% of the energy losses due to the open space between truck and door. On mechanical shelters corner seals should always be installed.
  15. 15. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com SECTION SECTION •The Doors Reduce energy losses at dock bay? The equipment configuration 3 things to consider: •The leveller •The shelter
  16. 16. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com The Dock door An insulated door is a must but Bottom and top sealing have to be in good shape and well adjusted U Value U-values gauge how well a material allows heat to pass through. The U value is depending on the design and thickness of the door. For overhead sectional door with insulated panels this U value is around 1W/m2K and it can go up to 4W/m2K for a glazed door. Maintaining your door will help you secure that the door always insulate as it did when you purchased it.
  17. 17. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com Well maintained Side Sealing eliminate draft
  18. 18. A Cardo brand www.cardo.com To limit draft at all time an airlock system based on a combination of a sectional door and a high speed door should be installed Air lock function To minimize energy losses we have developed and delivered air lock system based on a combination of traditional overhead sectional door and a wind resistant high speed door reducing draft during the loading unloading process tremendously.
