Case Study Backup Refrigeration for Chemical Sector

Mobile Backup Refrigeration Unit for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Sometimes industrial refrigeration needs backup units, active at well-defined times in the company’s productivity: this is the case of the Italian headquarters of a pharmaceutical multinational, to which Frigofluid supplied a removable chiller.

Removable custom cooler: the requirement

When an industrial plant is expanded, the industrial refrigeration section must also be able to scale up with the addition of new chiller units. However, for different plant requirements over time, customised solutions can be considered: such as the custom chiller equipped with wheels, requested by a company in the chemical-pharmaceutical sector.

The customer for this customised solution is a group with 100 years of history in the production of pharmaceuticals. The basic product selected by Frigofluid, in agreement with the customer, is an RWA 4 ax air-cooled chiller: electronically controlled axial fan for modulation of operating parameters, internal storage at atmospheric pressure. Power requirement: 3.9 kW. We are therefore talking about a model for limited performance, to which we have added the possibility of easy transport on wheels.

The refrigerant gas used is R513A, with a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of low environmental impact.
All Frigofluid units are prepared for remote control: the customer can therefore monitor parameters, performance and operation of the machine even from a company management system.

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.
