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.
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.
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.
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.
The air-cooled MRM Series includes a full range of modular chillers from 90 to 580 kW (25.6 to 165 tons). The heavy-duty, industrial-grade line is more efficient than the company’s previous Heavygel HGM.
Line of two-stage, oil-sealed rotary vane pumps range in flow rate from ~141 to 2295 ft3/hr (4 to 65 m3/hr). They are suited for use in analytical instruments and semiconductors as well as the chemical, vacuum coatings and power industries.
Designed specifically for industrial refrigeration applications, the motor-controlled ball valves have electronic actuators for precise modulation of refrigerant flow. The low pressure-drop valves can help reduce energy costs.
The 1/8 NPT external-mix spray nozzles atomize fluids up to 25 gal/hr, and they can be used on liquids with a viscosity up to 800 cP. Suited for uses where a high volume of liquid is needed, the nozzles combine liquid and compressed air to create an adjustable coating of liquid.
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.
