They shared with us their most recent innovative project at Asian Foods, where they supplied and installed a rack system comprising of a 170kW C02 low-temperature cascade rack and a 434Kw R134 a medium temperature screw rack and an energy-saving glycol defrost system which is heated freely off the medium temperature rack eliminating electric heaters, allowing the system 2 defrosts a day for less than 15 minutes. Finally, they installed a fully automated Emerson control system with touch screen operation. The same system was recently installed at the Wyuna Cold Stores’ facility at the airport.
