Energy savings of more than 73% with C02 reduction of 91 tonnes per year.


The Adelphi Group of Companies supply a wide range of packaging & processing machinery and equipment to a number of different industries.


Based in Haywards Heath, The Adelphi Group’s main production and stores area is situated on a mezzanine floor and with heat rising from the warehouse below, it has made the temperature too warm and uncomfortable to work in during the summer months.

Due to the large open space, evaporative cooling systems were recommended – as the running costs of traditional air conditioning would have proved too expensive*.

* Even on the very hottest summer days the evaporative cooling systems will supply fresh air cooling at temperatures below 23C at typically less than 10% of the operating costs of refrigeration

As an authorised installer of Evaporative Cooling systems for UK manufacturer, EcoCooling Ltd, SMARTech energy were brought on board to design in an energy efficient cooling system at the site – with the aim to improve the working environment for their staff.

Prior to the project start, a team from The Adelphi Group were invited to visit our previous evaporative cooling installation work at the Herman Miller factory site in Wiltshire, to better understand the installation process of evaporative cooling.


  • 2 x Evaporative cooling systems with recirculation capability. Both controlled via single PLC
  • Cooled air is discharged to the area by 2 x fabric ducts running the length of the production area
  • 2 x nozzles in the ends of the duct direct more air to the mezzanine area
  • Hot air is removed via 2 x exhaust grilles located above the supply entry points
  • Low energy usage – automatically ramps up and down according to needs. Fresh air injection into working areas for operatives


  • Improves security – as would not need to leave doors open to introduce cooler air in summer
  • The external units are roof mounted so require no floor or external space for installation
  • All work can be carried out during business hours and does not require any downtime
  • The cooling solution will improve the working environment for its staff and deliver energy savings to the company
  • Acting as a recirculation system for winter and a ventilator or evaporative cooling system for the summer
  • Even on the very hottest summer days the Evaporative Cooling systems will supply fresh air cooling at temperatures below 23C at typically less than 10% of the operating costs of refrigeration


SMARTech energy were approached in late 2019 and work to a schedule that would take advantage of a quieter period in The Adelphi Group’s production; thereby allowing SMARTech energy to install the system with minimal disruption to daily operations and more importantly, have the air cooling systems functioning prior to the summer months.

The project was led by Head of Evaporative Cooling at SMARTech energy Seth Robinson.

Seth comments “The installation took a team of 3 engineers, 2 weeks to install and we are delighted with the finished project.  We will continue to maintain and service all of the units and our relationship with The Adelphi Group continues to thrive”.
