1. Installation context

The end customer is a manufacturer of bathroom porcelain with a history of nearly three centuries in the ceramics industry. The company’s headquarters are located in Germany, but it has locations in Europe and operates globally. The installation under study is located in the Netherlands.

MITA Cooling Technologies, in cooperation with Varmeco, was approached by the client company to replace two old closed cooling towers used to remove heat during the production process.

2. Proposed solution

After mapping process parameters and comparing different solutions, it was concluded that the use of adiabatic dry coolers would result in significant water savings. Indeed, this technology requires less water than other solutions (due to the short wetting cycles of the adiabatic pack). In addition, the client company benefited from the fact that it was no longer necessary to treat the water used in the cooling processes. During a short production downtime of a few days, the cooling towers were removed from the roof and the suppliers installed and connected the adiabatic dry coolers.

The proposed solution also included some special offerings, such as a recirculation kit, a removable wall for internal inspection, and a main control panel and human-machine interface (HMI) for remote control and management.

3. Results and critical success factors

These elements decreed the success of the project.

  • Significant water savings: the use of adiabatic dry coolers enabled the client company to save a considerable amount of water compared to previous solutions.
  • Choice from a wide range of solutions: MITA Cooling Technologies and Varmeco evaluated different cooling options and selected the optimal solution for the client company’s needs.
  • Support during all stages of the process: suppliers provided ongoing support, from the needs assessment phase to equipment installation.
  • Turnkey installation by a reliable partner: the adiabatic dry coolers were installed and connected fully and functionally by the suppliers, ensuring a smooth installation.
