Advantages of ice water pre-cooling
To boost refrigeration plant capacities, particularly in dairies, operators often add ice water storage tanks. However, these tanks can require a significant financial investment and extra space, which not all businesses have access to.
A cost-effective and space-saving alternative is ice water pre-cooling. With this approach, water is cooled before it enters the ice water storage tank, reducing strain on the existing system and improving overall efficiency. By pre-cooling the water, the refrigeration plant can operate more effectively, cooling the milk to the correct temperature more quickly and consistently. This not only helps to reduce energy costs, but also helps to improve the quality of the milk, which is of utmost importance in the dairy industry.
Ice water pre-cooling is an innovative approach that is becoming increasingly popular among dairy businesses. It's a smart way to improve efficiency without breaking the bank, making it an ideal option for businesses of all sizes.
Types of ice water distribution
Open ice water circuit
Ice water basins are a popular choice for refrigeration due to the efficiency of submerged heat exchange systems. Despite this, they do have a drawback: they require placement on upper floors to prevent air infiltration and ensure proper heat transfer and corrosion prevention. While this can be challenging, it's important to consider the many benefits of such systems, such as their ability to offer consistent cooling and the cost savings that come from efficient operation. However, there are also alternatives to consider. Specifically, roof-mounted Falling-Film chillers or ice machines can be a cost-effective alternative to the submerged heat exchange system. These devices produce ice or ice water, which can be used to effectively replace the ice storage used in other systems. This makes them a valuable option for any operation, offering a range of benefits that can help to improve efficiency and save money over the long-term.
Closed ice water circuit
This cooling system is specifically designed to maintain overpressure in the upper floors while keeping the refrigeration system in the basement. It features two separate circuits, divided by a heat exchanger, with one circuit supplying ice water to consumers and the other being a secondary circuit (using glycol) that connects to the refrigeration system or an open circuit with submerged heat exchange and plate heat exchanger. Although the ice water temperatures are relatively high at approximately 2°C, which some users may find unsuitable, it's worth noting that this setup is a great alternative to open systems with temperatures around 0.5°C. It offers a reliable and efficient cooling system that can be used in various applications. Additionally, the system can be customized to meet specific needs and requirements, ensuring the ideal temperature and pressure levels are maintained at all times.
