Looking for a re-chiller that performs above the industry standard without sky-high energy bills? The COOLCAT Re-Chiller could be the option you are looking for, thanks to high performance efficiency and a system that builds energy savings into its design.
One of the finest re-chillers available on the market today, the COOLCAT combines superb reliability with one of the most economical systems commercially available; a system which utilizes two hermetically sealed ammonia pumps, one for principal use and the other for back-up in case of unforeseen contingencies.
“A lot of savings have been built in to the design,” explains Dustin Huggins, JBT’s Product Manager for Chillers and Re-chillers.
“The unit is a recirculated system and utilizes a small pump to move the refrigerant vs. hot gas injection. The refrigeration system sees a significant reduction of load with this method. The result is a pretty big savings for any plant that has the Re-Chiller installed.”
Each COOLCAT unit comes with hermetically sealed ammonia pumps for minimum energy consumption, as well as C.A.T.’s unique, patented “U” bends – manufactured using an exclusive proprietary process – which do not leak.
As well as this, the Re-Chiller includes state-of-the-art PLC control packages as standard on each unit to regulate temperature.
Using two pumps and the ammonia system, the water going through the piping is cooled to 32℉ (0℃); as close to freezing as you can get without the water solidifying, Huggins explains. However, as an extra level of assurance, the Re-Chiller features built-in freeze protection, and the machine will shut down as a safety measure if the amount of water entering the system reaches too high a pressure. Additionally, it has floating tubes which are not fixed into position which allows both for thermal expansion and gives the tubes room the breathe.
ASME rated at 250psi, each COOLCAT Re-Chiller is tested at C.A.T.’s Russellville, Arkansas factory before being shipped out to customers worldwide. Featuring stainless steel frame and stainless steel components, every model comes completely pre-piped including all refrigerant valves, pre-wired, and pre-insulated, with all necessary isolation valves and pressure gauges included.
