Chiller Case Study for Food Sector

Chiller for Agribusiness in Senegal

A large company needed a chiller for cooling its food processes at a production site in Dakar. We supplied a RW ax refrigeration chiller, an air-condensed ecological gas compression model, for ambient temperatures up to +40°C.

1. chillers for agribusiness: precise temperature control

When food and beverage production is at stake, the first requirement is the precise control of production processes: including therefore the fluid outlet temperatures allowed by a chiller. The same request came from an installer of our client, who needed to supply a large Senegalese agribusiness company with a chiller for a production site in Dakar.

The player we served produces sauces and finished tomato paste products.

After an evaluation of the project requirements, they definitely opted for an air chiller instead of a water chiller (given, of course, the scarcity of the water resource in the installation area).

2. Temperatures and cooling capacity

In agreement with the customer, a RW ax series refrigeration system was selected as an alternative to an ERW chiller (for extreme temperatures), judged to be sufficient for high ambient temperatures. given the spatial configuration of the production facility, it was possible to install an external storage tank.

The cooling capacity used places the selected agri-food chiller in the medium-high range of the RW ax series: however, thanks to the electronically controlled motor-fan unit, it is possible to modulate the operating parameters and optimize energy use.

Preliminary Assessment

Many interlocutors come to us with a very general idea of their industrial refrigeration needs: this is normal. That's why we stimulate the sharing of technical information.

Customized Design

We believe that integration with the best accessories on the market and the careful and 'unified' selection of internal components can make the difference.

Custom Chillers and Turnkey Plants

Production facilities and the characteristic of the installation area also have important effects on the design: because one cannot stop at the listed solutions.
