The UK vending solutions supplier, Aimia Foods is using a new cooling system from Cosaf at its newly developed packaging plant in Hadock. Climate Wizard is a form of direct evaporative cooling, said to be capable of delivering much colder temperatures without adding any additional moisture to the conditioned space.
Aimia Foods required an energy efficient cooling solution and having worked with Cosaf previously invited the HVAC specialists to create an energy efficient and environmentally responsible cooling solution.
The packaging plant needed to be cooled but very strategically, as the space was used to pack a hygroscopic product that required the air to have minimum moisture content to avoid the packed products gaining any unnecessary weight.
Cosaf installed Climate Wizard unit into the factory along with its product hygienic ductwork system; which is a lightweight self insulating ductwork system with a wipe down finish particularly suited to the food industry.
The Climate Wizard provides low energy, low carbon cooling with no added moisture and is said to be the only evaporative cooler in the world which can offer this highly specialised solution.
Reductions in emissions can equate to six tonnes of CO2 per year for each new Climate Wizard installed in place of a ducted refrigerated system. By replacing their current air conditioning system with Climate Wizard, Aimia Foods was able to supply air at refrigerated temperatures with no refrigerant gases and no compressors.
Cost savings in energy consumption of 80 to 90 per cent are said to be achievable. This installation is only one of a handful to be competed in the UK.
