A multinational brewery in the United Kingdom installed a system that will deliver 1.2 MW of process cooling to a beer-bottling plant line.

For its latest expansion project involving a new beer-bottling plant, the brewery was looking for a non-ammonia-based cooling line that would be able to supply steady low temperature process cold with attention to sustainability.

The brewer worked with U.K-based ICS Cool Energy to design a modular system incorporating its Imperium air-cooled screw chiller, which is capable of delivering 1.2 MW of capacity and supplying return cooling fluid at 32°F (0°C) temperature. Imperium units use ultra low GWP, hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) R-1234ze refrigerant.

The installation includes equipment redundancy to provide the brewery with a standby system for contingency in case of any failures.
