Compressors, often referred to as the heart of the refrigeration cycle, are typically the largest energy consumers. Condensers fill the role of rejecting heat from a refrigerated space to the atmosphere by condensing the refrigerant.
Design-build companies provide single-source responsibility for all aspects of a project. For users of process cooling, the design-build approach means that single supplier — with a team consisting of architects, refrigeration engineers, designers and contracting field engineers, among others — helps eliminate overlap in design and construction phases, streamlining project completion. In addition, the processor has a single supplier that takes full responsibility for the project from conception to completion.
Iceman OA Series is designed for exterior installation, freeing up indoor floor space. The outdoor air-cooled chillers have a scroll compressor to provide efficiency, enhanced reliability and quieter operation.
For applications requiring high water-cooling performance in small spaces, the mRC-Kit-900-Twin provides two independent water-cooling systems that can provide a combined maximum cooling capacity of 900 W in a 19” rack-mount insert.
When sizing, selecting and installing hermetic pumps in refrigeration units, there are many considerations. This article will explore the types of pump as well as provide a guide for troubleshooting common problems.
BioSpray Tower will disinfect hard, nonporous surfaces, says the manufacturer. The EPA-registered disinfectant kills 99.9 percent of Legionella pneumophila when correctly applied to hard, nonporous surfaces like cooling towers.
The number of cooling towers used for industrial applications and HVAC systems in the United States was estimated at 500,000 to 600,000 towers in a report by Pacific Northwest Laboratory in 1995. Based on that value and the intervening years, we can extrapolate that the number of cooling towers worldwide can be estimated at 1.5 million.
For those involved in the process industries, three shows this fall offer a chance to see new and upgraded products firsthand, learn about emerging technologies and network with others in the industry.
Heat exchangers, boilers and other water-contacted vessels are integral parts of many industrial plants. Often, when people think of protecting these components from corrosion, their minds fast-forward to corrosion issues that occur after the equipment is installed.
Attendees of the IIAR Natural Refrigeration Conference & Heavy Equipment Expo come from all facets of the industry including design engineers, contractors, end-users, academics, scientists, trainers, and government agencies.
