Check out the January 2020 edition of Process Cooling: Cryogenic cooling for hemp processing, automation for cooling tower maintenance, minimizing white rust on galvanized cooling towers and much more!
For decades, cooling towers have provided an efficient means of cooling industrial process loops by providing the lowest operating temperatures available. At the same time, through the years, water-based cooling systems have evolved.
Greenyard Frozen has more than 50 years of experience in providing fresh-frozen fruits and vegetables. At its King’s Lynn production site in the United Kingdom — one of the company’s 10 sites across Europe — Greenyard Frozen needed a robust refrigerant leak detection and notification system.
Globally, regardless of the industry, water and energy savings are becoming more important. This article explores the benefits of adiabatic cooling by looking at a new installation at a metal processing company that was scheduled to go online in late 2019. A case history helps illustrate how other industrial processors might take advantage of this technology.
Evaporative cooling has been around for centuries. Also called adiabatic cooling (particularly in Europe), evaporative cooling is the earliest form of air-side cooling known to man. In spite of that, it also is probably the least understood — and sometimes maligned — solution to cooling.
Some farms grow food,” says the soothing yet authoritative voiceover in the commercial. “This one grows fuel.” So begins a recent television commercial from ExxonMobil that brings again to the consumer consciousness the idea of growing algae for biofuel production.
Lakos Filtration Systems has formed strategic partnership with Handasiyah, an engineered products distributor located in the Middle East. According to filtration systems maker Lakos, Handasiyah has deep knowledge and expertise in refrigeration leak detection, outdoor cooling systems, hydronic cooling, liquid-solid filtration and humidity control.
Design-build firm Stellar will help develop and promote Opteon in industrial refrigeration projects, including retrofits, following a partnership agreement with with Chemours Co., a global chemistry company. Opteon refrigerants are hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) based.
The 2020 AHR Expo announced its full schedule of sessions for the its education program, including more than 200 free seminars, new product and technology presentations, professional certifications and continuing education courses. The 2020 AHR Expo will be held February 3-5 in Orlando, Fla.
Danfoss entered into a collaboration with Microsoft to bring domain expertise in refrigeration and HVAC to the cloud. The cloud-based services, to be delivered through a platform powered by Microsoft Azure, will enable food retailers to reduce food loss, reduce energy consumption and optimize overall store performance.
Goodway Technologies, a manufacturer of industrial maintenance and cleaning solutions, is partnering with Camus to offer a safe and effective cleaning solution for industrial boilers. Camus manufactures gas-fired, high efficiency copper tube and stainless steel boilers.
A turnkey cooling system has cut the time it takes to chill a meat marinade by one-third, enabling a soup/sauce manufacturer to significantly increase production. Denver-based Ready Foods, after receiving a large order from a chain of restaurants, needed a solution that would enable it to decrease the length of time it took to cool the marinade from 200°F to 38°F.
Design-build firm A M King finished design and construction of a greenfield facility for TrueCore, a manufacturer of insulated metal panels for use in construction and renovation of industrial cold storage and food processing projects. The building sits on a 14-acre site in Laurens, S.C.
Lineage Logistics Holdings of Novi, Mich., signed definitive agreements to acquire Dallas, Texas-based Emergent Cold. The acquisition strengthens Lineage’s presence in the United States and signifies its entry into the Australian, New Zealand and Sri Lankan temperature-controlled logistics markets.
Stellar, a fully integrated design-build firm, completed construction of two refrigerated distribution facilities for Lineage Logistics in Vernon, Calif. The two adjoining facilities, which total 200,000 ft2, began as one cold storage building.
Designed for applications where a fine level of filtration is not required, Series ORC can be installed in parallel to handle larger flow rates. Perforated stainless steel screens are available with 3000, 5000 or 8000 micron openings.
If the Dräger Pac 8000 measures hazardous gas concentrations, it sets off an audible, visual and noticeable vibrating alarm. Two bright, ﬂashing LEDs on the top and bottom of the device ensure that the alarm is easily visible from all sides.
