Major players in the TCS&D industry are reaping the benefits of investing in Star's improved range of high efficiency ammonia packaged cooling solutions.
A recent project saw one market leader in the cold storage and distribution industry invest in both the Azanechiller and Azanefreezer for two UK depots. Azanechiller is allowing the operator to extend an existing chill store facility, whilst Azanefreezer is to be retrofitted to a low temperature cold store at another site.
Star’s Azane range is designed to meet the environmental and legislative challenges facing operators in the temperature controlled storage industry. Ideal for both new and retrofit projects, each model is a complete packaged refrigeration plant with a very low charge of natural refrigerant ammonia.
Star’s Group Sales & Marketing Director Rob Lamb says: "The Azane range combines high efficiency, environmentally conscious cooling with a low total cost of ownership. Thanks to the system’s energy efficient features and low maintenance design, operators benefit from long term energy savings and reduced operating costs."
He adds: "Each model in the Azane range is a complete fully packaged refrigeration system, which requires no plant room. Site installation time is quick and the associated costs are minimal, as each unit is commissioned and charged prior to delivery.
The Azanechiller range features 12 air and water cooled models with capacities ranging from 200kW to 850kW. Azanechiller can cool both water and secondary fluids such as glycol, therefore making it suitable for a wide range of applications, including TCS&D, HVAC, food processing, ice rinks and process cooling.
Azanefreezer has a very low charge of ammonia, as low as 0.9kg/kW (5lb/TR). Standard sizes range from 110kW to 250kW for a nominal cold store temperature of -25°C and from 25TR to 70TR for a nominal freezer temperature of -10°F. High efficiency control features include floating head pressure and EC condenser fans. Key benefits include low maintenance costs and no ongoing water, effluent and water treatment costs.
