Check out the March 2021 edition of Process Cooling: Condenser optimization for improved power plant operations, chillers and sub-ambient cooling, filtration, how clean is your process cooling water, heat exchangers and much more!
In large systems, the dissipation of process or ambient heat generated by manufacturing, power generation and food processors often is accomplished by cooling towers. These structures facilitate the transfer of heat through the use of water.
Danfoss changed its group structure to combine the Heating and Cooling segments into Danfoss Climate Solutions. With the new Climate Solutions segment, the company will intensify its focus on the green agenda in global markets.
Cold Summit Development launched a 343,000 ft2 multi-tenant cold-storage facility, Cold Summit Dallas, in Dallas, Texas. The $60 million project will include state-of-the-art refrigeration technology and a 50’ clear height. Construction is anticipated to start immediately with completion scheduled for September 2021.
Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), a global provider of reusable and single-use passive thermal packaging solutions for the shipment of temperature-sensitive products for the life sciences industry, opened a facility in Lebanon, Tenn., that will support the needs for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
A course focused on ANSI/IIAR 9-2020, the Standard for Minimum System Safety Requirements for Existing Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems, will help attendees learn how to apply those requirements to a safely operated refrigeration system.
To better reflect its emphasis on helping industrial processors navigate the shift to digital, Danfoss Industrial Automation has changed its name to Danfoss Sensing Solutions. In addition, the company is strengthening its portfolio, services and ability to provide application-driven sensor technologies and solutions.
Cleaning equipment and solutions play a key role in optimizing the operation of equipment used in industrial environments. A heavily fouled cooling tower or chiller, for instance, has poorer heat transfer.
A new cannabis cultivation facility in Massachusetts will use two 200-ton Tecochill chillers from Tecogen Inc. The chillers will provide facility cooling using natural gas with the free waste heat utilized for dehumidification.
In the first part of this two-part article series (“The Regulatory Environment and the Importance of Reducing Charge in Cold Storage,” January/February 2016, p. 8 or www.process-cooling.com/Chapp-part1), I looked at the regulatory environment in the United States and the importance of reducing the charge of ammonia used in cold storage facilities and other refrigeration systems.
A liquid nitrogen leak from a cryogenic freezing system at Foundation Food Group’s Gainesville Plant 4 killed six people, required 12 to be hospitalized, and led to the evacuation of 130 others in Gainesville, Ga. The plant is owned by Foundation Food Group, recently formed by the merger of Prime-Pack Foods and Victory Processing. The U.S. Chemical Safety Board is on site and investigating.
Lineage Logistics acquired Cryo-Trans, North America’s leading provider of refrigerated and insulated railcars and rail management solutions. The partnership creates a comprehensive and seamlessly integrated supply-chain solution for food and beverage customers.
Tippmann Innovation is working with long-term partners Sierra Supply Chain Services and Penta Properties to build a $65 million cold-storage facility in Hamilton, Ontario. Upon completion, the 65’ tall facility will include almost 250,000 ft2 of storage space and 30,000 ft2 of food processing space.
Lineage Logistics Holdings LLC acquired Pago Sp. z o.o., a warehousing, distribution and transport logistics provider in Poland. The strategic acquisition marks Lineage’s entrance into the Polish market and adds six assets to the company’s global network of temperature-controlled facilities.
TorQuest Partners completed the acquisition of VersaCold Logistics Services, one of Canada’s leading cold-storage warehousing and food logistics companies, from KingSett Capital and Ivanhoe Cambridge. VersaCold operates 31 temperature-controlled facilities across Canada.
The Florida Panthers IceDen selected Stellar to renovate one of the facility’s three ice sheets and install an associated refrigeration system. The new system will utilize Opteon, the NHL's official refrigerant solution developed by The Chemours Company, a Stellar partner. The $1.2 million project broke ground in September 2020 and is expected to be completed by March 2021.
Typical applications for the FTI QCT_PA12 Series include water treatment for cooling towers and boilers, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, mechanical seal flushing or cooling, process water, cooling loops, reverse osmosis (RO) systems, small-line injection systems, DI water-distribution systems and high purity filtration systems.
Designed to take up less space while delivering greater cooling capacity, the DTS 34X1C provides 1.5 ton of cooling capacity while the DTS 36X1C provides up to 2 tons of cooling capacity at normal operation.
The APV D4 allows users to clean a pipeline without having to empty the contents of the tank. Having this ability improves efficiency, eliminates changeover costs and reduces operating expenses, says the manufacturer.
