REFRIGERATED WAREHOUSES

Thanks to the experience we have built up over many years, we are able to provide solutions in the field of large dedicated refrigeration systems.

The selection of a team of specialists to design, implement and install the system follows the company logic of retaining specific skills for the purpose of

creating bespoke solutions that fully meet the customer’s requirements.

An example is the refrigerated logistics platform for large retail chains built in Padua (IT).

The dimensions of the structure were 24,000 m² and more than 90,000 m³, requiring a cooling capacity that would meet the needs of medium temperature refrigeration rooms and low temperature refrigeration rooms.

Our designers equipped the facility with an NH3 system based on ethylene glycols, achieving a high level of versatility in power modulation.

An entire area of the facility was reserved for the multiple compression units, condensers and separators for NH3, completing the system with tens of meters of piping and evaporators, specifically installed in relation to the characteristics of the products that would eventually be stored in the rooms.

The result was a tailor-made system capable of delivering 1,600 kW of cooling capacity at -12° and about 400 kW at -30°.

The logistics facility that we built fully meets the modern demands of the sector, allowing fresh products to be kept at 0° and frozen at -18°, optimising efficiency, space and combining all types of storage in a single structure.

CATERING

The short-term expansion project for the in-flight catering facility at Dubai International Airport.

According to its overall function, the refrigeration system is distributed throughout the plant by means of G/F coolers,

for the preparation of vegetables and fruit in 2 refrigeration rooms and for the production of food with large quantities of chillers and cold rooms in 19 refrigeration rooms.

The refrigeration system room with evaporative condensers was placed on the roof.

The catering facility designed for the Dubai airport is designed to handle approximately 130,000 meals a day.

The condensation units for the two refrigeration rooms and the evaporating condenser system have been positioned on the roof level, while the central refrigeration system has been placed on the floor.

Second floor: chiller rooms, freezer rooms, cabinets, spiral blast chiller, in-line cooling curtains, supply of refrigerants to service counters.

On the first floor the project includes chiller rooms, a reach-in cabinet and a damp ice system, while the outgoing chillers, the wet ice freezer rooms and the refrigerated cabinets have been installed on the ground floor.

To complete the system, there are the condensation units for wet ice freezers and the quarantine refrigeration room on the mezzanine level.

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

Our in-depth knowledge of the storage conditions for fruit has enabled us to obtain orders for important storage centres in Russia.

The facility, which is dedicated to the storage of apples, has 48 rooms and extends over 52,800 m³.

The requirements of the structure were met by implementing an R404 system capable of delivering over 1,500 kW at -15°.

The project required adaptation work on the entire structure for the construction of the rooms for the placement of refrigeration components and for the rooms with an internal temperature of 0/-1 degrees Celsius.

The specific conditions of the product required our designers to act on the intra-room atmosphere by equipping the system with a double controlled atmosphere system: 40 rooms are equipped with a ULO controlled atmosphere system, while the remaining 8 are equipped with a DCA (dynamic management) system.

The design research resulted in the installation, in a dedicated room, of several compression units operating with R404a, to which the system for controlling the conditions of the environment was added.

Tens of meters of piping were needed to equip the entire surface with evaporators, which were carefully selected according to the location of the installation.

The result is a high-performance facility with a storage capacity of 13,000 tonnes, where apples can be stored under their own specific conditions before final transportation to distribution centres.

MEAT

Slaughterhouses and meat processing plants require powerful and safe equipment, with no problems of defrosting or gas leaks. We can manufacture refrigeration units that use ammonia,

ecological gases and glycol, rapid freezing tunnels, storage rooms that maintain the best appearance and the best organoleptic qualities of the meat, washable air conditioners with rapid drying rooms, o3 systems for sterilizing environments.

All in accordance with EC and HACCP standards with temperature monitoring.

The design research has led to the installation, in a dedicated room, of several compression units operating using R404a, which has been joined

by the system for controlling the environmental conditions.

Tens of meters of piping were needed to equip the entire surface with evaporators, which were carefully selected according to the location of the installation.

The result is a high-performance facility with a storage capacity of 13,000 tonnes, where apples can be stored under their own specific conditions before final transportation to distribution centres.

CURED MEATS

The in-depth knowledge of the conditions needed to preserve meat has allowed us to acquire the order from major slaughterhouses for the production of cured meats in Russia.

The facility, which is responsible for slaughtering pigs, has a production capacity of 3,120 animals/day.

The specific characteristics of the product required our designers to base the project around three applications: a shock tunnel was built at -20° C, which is needed to quickly refrigerate pig carcasses, a series of refrigeration rooms at 0°C with a storage capacity of 3,500 animals and freezers for offal.

The system is completed by the air conditioning system that is required to maintain the correct temperature in the various working rooms.

The design research has led to the installation of several compression units

operating with R404a with ethylene glycol in a dedicated room.

Tens of metres of piping were necessary to equip the entire surface of the structure with evaporators of various capacities and sizes, carefully selected according to the specific conditions of the working rooms in which they would be placed.

The result is a high-performance system capable of reducing the actual average weight loss of the product from 2.5% to 1.3% after processing, allowing the customer to save over a million kg of weight loss per year.

FISH

The selection of a team of specialists to design, implement and install the system follows the company logic

of retaining specific skills for the purpose of creating bespoke solutions that fully meet the customer’s requirements.

Fish and seafood products in general are foods where preserving the product in perfect condition and maintaining the original freshness are of primary importance.

We are able to provide rooms for fresh fish and mussels,

freezing tunnels and storage rooms for frozen fish, conditioning processing rooms with air exchange and filtration.

All systems are made of materials that are suitably corrosion-resistant that conform to EC standards.

CHEESE

Reproducing the ideal conditions for maturing and

aging for all types of cheeses (fresh, blue, goat, soft, up to Parmesan and pecorino) avoiding mould, bacteria, weight loss and waste: our airclean refrigeration systems have been developed on these fundamental principles.

All of the air conditioning in a dairy, including the production and processing rooms, is carried out using high level hygienic systems, which can be washed and sanitised, with customised air circulation.

MILK | YOGHURT | ICE CREAM

The heat treatment of drinks and in

particular of milk and dairy products requires large quantities of cold at low costs.

In this sector we build highly efficient ammonia and ecological gas refrigeration systems, freezing water production systems with stainless steel tanks, rapid cooling and hardening tunnels, sterile air conditioning and clean-rooms where bottling takes place.

CLEANING ROOMS

We have been working for many years in the field of hygienic air treatment, paying particular attention to contamination control.

Our air conditioning systems can be washed and sanitised and are ideal for all sectors where a high level of hygiene or air quality is required.

The units, which have been designed to avoid water stagnation and so prevent problems of bacteriological pollution (salmonella), are equipped with an automated washing system and are manufactured according to hygienic design criteria, in compliance with EC regulations, with G3 and H13 filtration systems.

PROCESS LIQUIDS AND GAS COMPRESSION

We design and manufacture refrigeration systems that are used to cool process fluids, with applications in the chemical,

petrochemical and industrial production fields.

These systems are sized according to the needs of customers and their technical specifications comply with all of the standards in force in the areas where they are installed.

We also produce systems for the gas compression sector with a particular focus on natural gas.

In this specific case, the most significant projects concern compressor stations installed upstream of gas turbines for the production of energy,

which are normally based on screw compressor units.

We can therefore respond to any requirement that involves the use of systems to be used by production units.

ICE SKATING RINKS

We have created numerous ice stadia for ice hockey, short track, figure skating, curling and speed

skating as well as fixed and mobile ice rinks.

We have developed expertise based on technologies that make these systems reliable and safe, but also easy and economical to operate.

The equipment is programmed using computerised systems for remote control and remote management.

Design support is also provided for systems,

additional equipment, operation and management.
