Turnkey Refrigeration System

Saving Energy with a Turnkey Refrigeration System

A large plastics processing company needed to renew its refrigeration plant in its entirety. During the summer shutdown and the concomitant production stoppage, we built a turnkey refrigeration plant complete with: chillers, adiabatic coolers, heat exchanger, electrical panels and storage tank.

  • Turnkey refrigeration for plastics manufacturer
  • Some components supplied: chillers, coolers, exchanger and switchboards
  • 1,910 kWf total

Key to Success
Refrigeration plant complete with different systems to support different customer processes. A single point of contact throughout the project.
The expected energy and operating savings, given the characteristics of the new system, which is replacing power plants that are already performing well but have accumulated operating hours over 14 years of uninterrupted service, is 20 percent.

How turnkey refrigeration can save a manufacturing company resources

Five machines with three different types of operation, all however designed and installed in such a way as to allow energy saving and resource utilisation by automatically utilising all the hours of actual operational need. Hydraulic accessories, pump kits and storage tanks, installation services (including disposal of degraded process fluid) complete the supply of this turnkey refrigeration system.

The customer company is based in Monza Brianza and operates in the production of high-end plastic food containers.

We have renewed the entire fleet of machines currently in use by replacing and updating them with:

  • no. 2 air-cooled chillers RWE 624/4 ax ST,
  • no. 1 central dry cooler RAW 360/E
  • no. 2 adiabatic dry coolers PAD-V S 3/6 Q.

Total installed cooling capacity: 1,910 kWf.

The refrigeration system thus integrated replaces high-performance power stations with uninterrupted operation: the total energy saving expected is approximately 20%, thanks to the special features of the individual refrigeration and cooling systems.

In fact, Frigofluid chillers have remote control as standard: this means that the customer company can decide to monitor the operating parameters also from the company management system. On the other hand, the dry cooler allows energy saving “by default” thanks to the free-cooling action: i.e. cooling through the direct action of ambient air on the heat exchange coils. The adiabatic dry cooler, on the other hand, allows optimisation of the resources used by switching (depending on the parameters set on the control panel) from a purely air mode to another with pre-cooling by means of very short wetting cycles.

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.
