Refrion has released figures to illustrate the performance of its Ecooler dry cooler in a data centre project for a leading UK bank.
The Italian manufacturer says the Ecooler range is designed to meet the growing demand for free cooling applications and combines Refrion's technology of oval tubing and the PADS adiabatic system, with panels made of sheets of corrugated cellulose to humidify the air.
At the recent IOR best practice webinar for service engineers, Bill Barlow, OEM business unit director for Conex Bänninger, provided tips on how and where the manufacturer’s >B< MaxiPro press-fit range should be used for pipework joints, as well as the training available.
Ed Whinyates of Stonegrove Refrigeration Services and Glenn Ward of Distribution Hygiene Services explain why regular cleaning of coolers and drains can result in significant savings
We all know and understand the importance of planned preventative maintenance on refrigeration systems. We help our customers to understand how this benefits plant performance and longevity both in the short and long term. However, one area that can be overlooked is the regular cleaning of coolers and associated drains.
With the summer weather, and in particular the recent and unbroken spell of hot weather, a number of companies will be experiencing the problems of maintaining required temperatures in both chilled and freezer environments. When this happens, thoughts can often focus on what small changes can be made to prevent this in the future. One question should be “are the evaporators/coolers clean and working efficiently?” A second should be “have the condensate lines been thoroughly cleansed and voiding the water when they are being defrosted”?
