LOW-CHARGE AMMONIA REFRIGERATION CHILLER
Evapcold says its LCR-C-A low-charge ammonia refrigeration chiller is now available with air-cooled and adiabatic condenser technology. The chiller provides a chilled secondary fluid to serve many diverse applications and includes over 100 pre-engineered industrial design models. Typical ammonia charges range from 2.5 pounds/tons of refrigeration (TR) to 5.5 pounds/TR and can serve cooling loads from 40 to 250 TR, with fluid temperatures ranging from 5 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The chillers require zero water usage with air-cooled technology or minimal water usage with alternate adiabatic technology. They are environmentally friendly with zero ozone depletion potential and zero global warming potential.
GEA North America says its BluAstrum chiller features a sleek design, requires minimal maintenance, and delivers reliable performance and operational advantages. Available in seven screw-compressor-driven models, GEA BluAstrum utilizes a water-cooled condenser and a combined evaporator-liquid separator. Its cooling capacity is 100-500 tons of refrigeration with a variable speed range of 1,000–4,500 rpm for superior part-load efficiency and turndown. This ultra-low charge, high-efficiency chiller features the high-definition, multi-touch GEA Omni control panel with optional multiple chiller sequencing.
Rytec’s Turbo-Seal insulated door stops cold energy loss at the doorway through enhanced performance features. The company says the door boasts an unrivaled average speed of 101 inches per second to minimize air exchange. In combination, material-handling systems can work harder, while the cold storage room’s chiller system can work less to save energy. With thermal breaks built into the header, side columns, and bottom bar, quad seals in the side columns, and brush seals at the top of the door, the Turbo-Seal insulated door seals securely. It’s also ideal for today’s higher-ceiling facilities and higher doorways, enabling full doorway access in only seconds.
