Norbrook Newry – Temperature Control Case Study


Temperature management of products from manufacture, through packaging, storage and distribution is critical to Norbrooks’ quality standards. The Sintra Pulsion® was the solution of choice for Norbrook for their warehouses and packing areas. 

Cross Group provided the system design, and carried out the onsite installation with minimum disruption to the production work schedules. 

Cross Group have over 80 years experience in refrigeration and air conditioning, and are sole Sintra Pulsion® distributors for UK and Ireland.


Stable and stringent temperature control, combined with operator comfort were key elements identified by Norbrook for their warehousing and packing areas. 

Capital and lifecycle costs along with ease and speed of installation were key drivers for Norbrook, in their decision for the innovative, customised Sintra Pulsion® solution. 


Sintra Pulsion® is a unique high induction solution that delivers tempered air across all the areas, ensuring maximum comfort for the operatives, with no draughts and homogenous temperature stability to +/- 1 degree C. 

The Pulsers® recall large quantities of ambient air to mix with the input air. This mixture of input and surrounding air approaches design temperature within 1m of the Pulser and sets the total environment air mass in controlled motion. 

Heating, cooling and fresh air is provided to the Sintra Pulsers by Rhoss Air Handling Units, incorporating fresh air, free cooling, and inverter driven fans. 

AHU control strategy is bespoke, modulating the primary and secondary Pulsers .
