PAL 150 “SP” is a new concept in the High Speed Door trade as it breaches the traditional door configuration. The usual basic design : ” steel frame, drive motor, flexible curtain, safety photocells control box”, has been revamped by COIL. A new solution was developed for best isolation of processing departments and/or storage rooms with individual controlled environments.
For these applications, a possibility to install “high speed rollup automatic doors” is a welcome convenience for both plant designers and operators.
The PAL 150 “SP” function is : “automate” operators traffic and “isolate” rooms with different environments with no need for sectional barriers. These room environments usually require doors with special features such as :
- Frequent wash down capability. This is mandatory in the food processing industry
- Positive air tight feature. In the chemical-pharmaceutical and food industries the processing rooms are rated “white area”, thus their individual environments are over-pressurized to prevent outside pollution from entering. More the door is airtight less the energy costs to keep the room over pressurized will be.
- Reliable operation. Due to these special environments this automatic door must operate without special maintenance downtime.
