The Challenge

Our client- a large national food distribution company- required additional chilled storage capacity to fulfil contractual obligations. Typically, in excess of 1 million pounds worth of stock would be stored in the 60,000 m3 warehouse.

 

A large ambient warehouse was available on the site, but with no cooling fitted, was not considered an option. However, after contacting ACR a plan was hatched to install a high capacity cooling system.

 

Critically, a rapid 5 day turnaround was required for this project.

 

Turning Warehouse

The Solution to Turning a Warehouse into a Temporary Coldstore

Climate Rentals  specified and fitted a 1.1Mw temporary chilled storage system.

 

Because of the perishable nature and high stock value, a reliable temporary chilled storage system would be required. In view of this, it was decided that 2 separate overlapping systems would be specified, offering good redundancy in the event of failure of either system.

 

ACR fitted 13x 50kw low temperature air handling units, mounted on a scaffolding platform. Each AHU is fitted with a defrost panel to control the electric heaters and valves required to keep the units free of ice build-up. 2x 600kw low temperature chillers were utilised with associated pumps, hose and fittings.

Summary

The project was a great success. The whole team worked really hard on what was a very tight schedule from concept to delivery. In all, the system provided faultless operation for three months. A great job.
