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.
The major factors driving the growth of the industrial refrigeration systems market are the expansion of the food and beverage processing sector in emerging economies, the advance of the cold-chain industry, and the rise in the demand for refrigeration solutions among pharmaceutical and chemical companies.
Fürth-based Wolf ButterBack KG is a specialist in Danish pastries, which the company produces for bakeries. The bakeries receive the pastries frozen and ready-to-bake in-house to sell to their customers.
Howden has been awarded a contract with UT-Battelle (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) to supply an oil-free screw compressor system and the variable-frequency drive (VFD) for the Tokamak Cooling Water System (TCWS). Tokamak is a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy.
In a world full of cookie-cutter products, process chillers that are designed specifically to meet the needs of the processor and the installation site can be a great asset when dealing with conditions such as extreme ambient air temperatures.
A blow-through evaporative condenser for industrial refrigeration applications has been specifically designed and built to simplify installation for contractors and provide extended life for operators.
Air- and water-cooled industrial-grade chillers are critical for industrial processes such as plastics, pharmaceuticals and transportation manufacturing. They also are used for brewing processes and medical equipment processing.
Spig S.p.A., a subsidiary of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, has been awarded a contract by Suez RV Energie to upgrade an air-cooled condenser for its waste-to-energy plant at the Feniix site in Rambervillers, France. All materials are scheduled to be delivered and erected in the first half of 2021.
Minimized noise, vibrations and pulsations, and reduced maintenance requirements, are among the features of a line of subcritical compressors intended for industrial low temperature applications in cold stores and the food industry.
