1. Installation context
The client company of MITA Cooling Technologies and Swedish distributor CAMpreq is a major Swedish manufacturer of dog and cat food with more than 100 years of experience in the industry. The company operates in about 20 countries and is known for the quality of its products.
In 2005, the company needed to install a cooling solution for its process lines, considering an increase in the scale of production at one of its plants compared to previous years. It also required that the cooling performance be certified.
2. Proposed solution
To meet the customer’s needs, MITA Cooling Technologies supplied a PME 5703 E K12 open circuit cooling tower. The K12 mode solution, in addition to performance and energy efficiency, has performance certified by the third-party body Eurovent, confirming the efficiency and quality of the system.
The evaporative cooling tower uses the principle of evaporative cooling, which enables high cooling performance while reducing water usage. This solution is particularly suitable for industrial applications, such as food processing.
3. The key to success
The critical success factor in this case is the combination of CA Morck’s, now CAMpreq’s, technical expertise and the high-quality cooling solutions provided by MITA Cooling Technologies.
“In adapting to the different expansions and new capacity requirements, CA Morck’s wide range of expertise was of great importance, especially the technical support we had during the project. Something that was really appreciated” , said the client company’s technology development manager.Ask for Information
In this project
PME-E Open-Circuit Evaporative Cooling Tower
A light and non-corrodible open-circuit evaporative cooling tower: process industry and HVAC operators will be able to count on its multiple versions and ease of transport and installation.
Cooling technologies for food industry must help preserve the quality of the finished product (and of the process liquid): this is true even more than in other industries. Closed circuit cooling towers and “hybrid towers” can make their contribution. It is fundamental to grant the operational plant continuity of the cooling system.
