The custom chiller designed by Frigofluid

High performance, for fluid temperatures below 0°C, and resistance in outdoor environments: these were the main demands of a juice company that made it opt for a custom chiller. Thus, with technical-functional features beyond the catalog and strongly focused on the customer’s design needs.

The Frigofluid chiller supplied to the client, the Italian headquarters of an American multinational, was to cool food processing machinery.

Conceptually, the machine designed and installed by Frigofluid is a combination of three different cooling chillers:

  • RW CW chillers, water-cooled machinery and thus endowed with high performance;
  • ERW chillers, which are suitable for outdoor environments due to their IP54 rating (for dust and splash protection);
  • and RW ax LT chillers, good for low outlet fluid temperatures (in this case water and glycol).

Power requirements: 8.1 kW. Water and glycol outlet: -2°C.

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.
