We train all our people to be specialists in what they do – innovative engineers dedicated to providing practical, effective and efficient solutions supported by second-to-none customer service.
Adiabatic Cooling Puts A Spin On Things For Home Appliance Manufacturer
Built in redundancy and energy efficiency are often key factors for clients when they’re considering upgrading their cooling equipment. This was exactly the case for a client who wanted to replace an aging air-cooled chiller system which provided hydraulic oil cooling to their manufacturing process. Our customer is a market leading manufacturer of home appliances, including a range of washing machines and tumble dryers. In addition to being old, their existing chillers ran on R407C refrigerant, which limited their energy efficiency potential.
During the manufacturing process, our client uses a cold press to produce component parts. In very basic terms, a sheet of metal is inserted between two metal plates. A hydraulic system then creates a sheer force which presses the required shape into the metal sheet. Our in-house design team removed 3 chiller units from the existing cooling system, replacing them with a single adiabatic cooler. One larger chiller unit was retained as a back up option. Moving to an adiabatic system meant the required cooling capacity could be achieved without the need for a refrigeration system.
