Temperature Control for Olympics


Heat Pump Chiller

Andrews Chiller Hire supplied a 200kW Heat Pump Chiller for the Olympic site in London to guarantee that concrete production was not interrupted. Concrete batching in all temperatures has become an increasing demand due to build projects schedules and pressure on developers and construction companies to deliver on deadlines.

This has caused concrete suppliers to meet the demand on their product by ensuring they can guarantee product during all extreme weather conditions. Importance of controlling concrete temperature is critical. Temperature affects fresh and hardened properties of concrete as well as the thermal cracking potential. Careful attention must be paid to batch temperatures in hot and cold weather concreting. For more information visit
