Carrier Rental Systems (UK) helped sustain production at one of the UK’s leading suppliers of eggs and poultry following a breakdown of its cooling plant.
The refrigeration system at the company’s site suffered a critical failure and plans for a new system had to be put on hold while specialised heat exchange equipment for the cooling plant was commissioned and budgets allocated.
To enable the plant to continue operating, and at the same time support its planned expansion in capacity, the company contacted Carrier Rental Systems for an immediate temporary solution.
After visiting the site and assessing the requirements, Carrier Rental Systems’ team rapidly provided a complete turnkey package, including four Carrier 30RH100 AquaSnap® air-cooled chillers rated at 100kW each, four low-temperature air-handling units, approximately 80m of ductwork and related piping and electrical connections.
The solution included full design, supply, installation and commissioning. The chillers were positioned outside the building, with chilled water pipework connected to the internally located air-handling units. Refrigerated air was supplied to the plant’s processing and packing areas by insulated ductwork installed in the roof space.
Commissioned and fully functional within 24 hours, the temporary cooling solution enabled the company to maintain and increase production throughout one of its busiest periods, while meeting strict industry product temperature requirements.
Carrier Rental Systems holds a comprehensive range of temperature control rental equipment at locations around the UK and Ireland, enabling a rapid response to heating, ventilation and air conditioning breakdowns and major outdoor leisure and sporting events.
Rental periods can be as short as one day to however long the temporary cooling solution is required.
