  • back room humidity

    What is the best temperature and humidity to run in the back room for the pinsetters. A couple of the houses I have visited have several fans and dehumidifiers running in the back. We dont have either, basically the only A/C we get is what comes through the doors by #1 and #32 and what comes in around the masking units. Thanks for reading.

    i know how you feel howard it sucks in the heat, the fans are the way to go i think. i just keep the door open and we have these huge turbo dryers that we use on the carpets when our cleaning crew shampoos the carpets and i just set it behind lane 4 and leter blow into the shop.

      When i took over a 24 laner a few years ago the backend was too hot in the winter,summer not great either sooo,i set the thermostat at 67 degrees and told them it's to be kept at that,if you get chilly grab a sweater.The pinsetters don't like heat much so between the winter 67 degrees and summer fans they began to run much better.,all by turning down the heat.Since then the owner has completely repaired the a/c system and they still run good.Everyone will find a comfort zone for the machines but too much heat will create some troubles.I'm not saying just turn the temp down and all is well but it has worked for me and a few other places that i stop in to relax have made some temp changes and things got better.

        Excessive heat and humidity can cause the pins to want to stick in the chutes. It also can cause ball calls. Keeping the thermostat low can also improce lane condidions, as the oil will be thicker with less carry down.
