Shutting down the plant to defrost the freezer coils or the unending task of maintaining dry floors so as to reduce falls, can dramatically affect a companies ability to meet its overall financial objectives. Controlling moisture in the cold storage space is crucial to eliminating these concerns.
The ability to reduce downtime due to maintenance or safety issues is key to the profitability of a cold storage facility.
Cross Hire can provide a temporary solution for companies with refrigeration and cold storage facilities, who struggle daily with both the practical and safety-related problems due to moisture.
Cross Hire can provide temporary dehumidification systems during those months when the moisture load is at its highest. These advanced systems can eliminate fog, frost build-up on coils, condensation and wet, slippery floors.
Application and Procedure
One of our Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Customers was presenting irregularities with their -30c freezer room evaporators, frosting over due to the ingress of warm humid air during door openings.
In order to ensure that the equipment is tailored specifically to each cold
storage facility, the following information was required:
• Size of the room
• Make-up of current air handling systems
• Moisture load from product
• Temperature requirements
• Make-up of the room material
• Infiltration rate.
Results and Benefits
Cross Hire’s engineers serviced and check the equipment, ducting and ancillary items prior to delivery on site. It is vital that the dehumidifier is sanitised and the ducting is new to eliminate the threat of contamination. Equipment is then placed in a designated area, positioned close to a power supply and set up to maximise the safe operation of the unit.
Cross Hire engineered a fixed solution to dehumidify the air entering the freezer which eliminated the icing on the floors, coolers and reduced the defrost cycles.
Energy efficiency in the freezing rooms is improved while having the resources required for defrosting. A better environment is also created for employees.
