Nearly all air conditioning applications can be divided in to two sections: Comfort and Process.

Comfort Applications:
Comfort applications aim to provide an indoor environment that will be comfortable for the people occupying the building and will remain relatively constant, despite changes in external weather conditions or internal heat loads.

Process Applications:
Process applications aim to provide a suitable environment for a process being carried out, regardless of internal heat, humidity loads or external weather conditions. Although the temperatures maintained are often similar to comfort applications, it is the requirements of the process that determine conditions, not human preference. Examples of process applications include:

  • IT Data Centres
  • Hospital operating theatres
  • Clean rooms
  • Laboratories
  • Aircraft
  • Electrical or communication equipment
  • Kitchens
