Of late, industrial processes such as pharmaceuticals, medical and recreational cannabis, vacuum coating and product testing — those that require a wide band of temperature control — have been at the forefront.
When choosing which low temperature heat transfer fluid to use for your process, data such as density, viscosity and pour point need to be taken into consideration. In Process Cooling’s annual Cooling Capabilities Chart on Low Temperature Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all of the data you need to choose a fluid for low temperature heat transfer fluid processes.
In high ambient temperature conditions like those found in metal-heating applications, electrical enclosures need cooling units in order to enhance performance and prevent failure. The acceptable operating temperature for most electrical devices exceeds 104°F (40°C).
GEA Refrigeration Technologies, the GEA division specializing in industrial refrigeration, joined the Cool Coalition led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). The initiative aims to drive the use of efficient, climate-friendly cooling in industrial processes and urban environments by fostering dialog between governments, business, finance and civil society.
GEA will sell its industrial refrigeration contracting operations in Spain and Italy to Clauger, a French family-owned company that specializes in industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. The transaction is expected to close in the fall.
When Miele’s old closed system with a hybrid evaporative cooler reached the end of its service life, the German manufacturer needed a solution for cooling the hydraulic systems at its Warendorf location.
The MH fluid cooler line is now available with three coil materials: copper, hot-dip galvanized steel and stainless steel. The expanded line from SPX Cooling Technologies Inc. is designed to meet multiple applications.
Nautilus Data Technologies and Reston, Va.-based Bechtel are collaborating to build data centers that are expected to use as much as 70 percent less power for cooling and eliminate the consumption of drinking water.
Developer Cold Creek Solutions (CCS) will build a roughly 350,000 ft2 cold-storage facility in San Antonio. CCS anticipates breaking ground in the fall so that the facility will be ready for operation in late 2022.
Magnavale secured planning approval and funding to construct an automated cold-storage facility with a capacity of 96,000 pallet spaces. According to the company, it will be the largest ever built in the United Kingdom.
HazLoc duty vortex AC coolers are designed specifically for purged electrical enclosures in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D locations, Class II, Division 2, Groups F and G and Class III locations.
FlexPro is intended for use in for cooling systems. With a range of products for corrosive, scaling and reclaim waters, the cooling water treatment line includes phosphorus-free and zinc-free treatment options.
