Cooling solutions in process industry
Refrigeration in industrial processes
Industrial process cooling is often characterized by varying temperatures and sewage waters full of suspended matter. Open circuit cooling towers with different characteristics are recommended depending on the cause, In these cases. Furthermore, our wide range of adiabatic and evaporative coolers allow us to adapt them to every project’s requirements.
We have been serving the needs of engineering companies, installers, and end users since 1967, installing more than 12,000 cooling towers worldwide.
What is your industry and what are your cooling needs?
Some of our projects in the process industry:
The challenge is to renovate the interiors of a 4-cell forced draught cooling tower that is more than 25 years old in an important Andalusian food plant that was deteriorating due to the passage of time.
Safely bridge the distance between the main plant building and the cooling equipment. This is one of the priorities of the project along with facilitating, through platforms, the execution of maintenance and cleaning tasks.
Cooling and its control of the furnaces for subsequent heat treatments is fundamental, since the characteristics and quality of the final product will depend on the controlled temperature and time curves.
An open circuit cooling tower is supplied for a skiing facility in Japan. Cooling towers PME-E 4103 Container CW Snow are selected for performance, maintainability and durability.
The common factor of all TORRAVAL cooling towers is fiberglass, an excellent plastic material to ensure the durability of the cooling equipment. The highly corrosive environment required the use of machines without metal components.
Industry 4.0: The latest technology in refrigeration not only supports a process but a future vision of the business. Fonderia Casati has no doubts about what will be necessary to maintain.
Creation of new process units and adaptation of the facilities and the expansion of the cooling of the production processes with two new TORRAVAL cooling towers.
The laboratory located at the University of Pisa has an area of 200 square meters and is located within the protected park of San Rossore. MITA Group provides a solution for the cooling system of the 2 engine test benches.
Adiabatic systems use the air cooling action only during autumn and winter. In this way, the outside cold air reaches the circuit's battery, which contains the liquid to cool.
The choice of filling the cooling towers is the key to optimizing the operation and maintenance of the refrigeration equipment. It is special for waters with high solids content.
To comply with the required deadlines and the technical aspects specified by ArcelorMittal, Torraval takes up the project launched with great flexibility, taking care of the design and collection in record time of the material for the renovation of the cooling tower.
The reasons for choosing cooling towers instead of other technologies such as refrigeration or air condensation systems, are several and have to do with issues such as their greater energy efficiency, lower acquisition cost, ease of maintenance and lower impact environmental
The closed circuit is the best solution to preserve the quality of the liquid to cool. In fact, the latter circulates in a tube bundle and does not come into direct contact with the cooling water of the cooling tower.
Installation Context Examples: food & beverage process lines, chemical industry, plastic processing, metal heat treatments.
Requirements: efficiency, water and energy savings, highly variable output temperatures.
Cooling Technologies: adiabatic dry coolers, cooling towers.
