Petrochemical Cooling Customer Journey

Sell your Old Chiller to Rapid Chiller Rentals

Chiller Solutions

Cooling hydrocarbon rundown during summer heat is proven to prevent interruptions in production.
An example case in question was:-
Oil refinery needs to continue scalable production in any climate and in line with fluctuating demand. The installed dry coolers were ineffective due to the summer heat, which increased the ambient air temperatures of its hydrocarbon rundown in the alkylation unit. This can affect the octane levels in the fuel produced and increase the water vapour leading to corrosion! Something needed to be done. The excess water vapour had to be flared off unless an alternative could be sourced. A simple heat exchanger and cooling tower was all that was needed, applied correctly flaring was halted and the customer learned how quickly a hire solution can have a positive impact on production optimisation.

Creation phase of customer contact for Rapid Chiller Rentals

Start by hiring a temporary chiller

The design process of creating a temporary freezer depends on key factor.

  • How much does it need to store.
  • How is that stock accessed and by whom.
  • As well as for how long it is required.

Rapid chillers are able to accommodate all these eventualities.
If it is a small business looking for a walk in freezer to enable them to use the space inside their premises for non-perishable stock, perhaps for the food retailer needing extra freezer capacity or any other combination, we are experts and here to help you make the right decisions.

Emergency Response Needed

A temporary wet system freezer or chill store

The most common of all our applications is installed following the partial or full loss of cooling in critical stores at food factories and haulage storage facilities.

Imagine your freezer at home breaking down and how quickly the temperature begins to rise.

Having a supplier on hand that can deliver and install a temporary cold or chill store quickly is quite often an essential piece of disaster recovery planning for the food retail industry.
Where stock is put at risk by temperature related failures a robust plan needs to be followed to prevent stock losses and continue business operations for example picking.
Trucks can mount up quickly and staff standing around waiting are not productive and the reputational damages that occur when orders don’t reach their destinations can mean contractual failings and these quite often have significant financial and trust related consequences.

Chiller Hire Reaction to your Emergency situations

Quick Reaction!

A couple of holes is all it takes sometimes!
A temporary chiller can be connected to the internal air movers by flexible glycol hoses and filled with specially treated water that cannot freeze, this solution delivers the cooling into the building space and removes the heat, back to the chiller. Where it is vented as waste energy to atmosphere.

A single air handler can deliver 25kW or 50kW of cooling in the right conditions. Our specialist hire team, work out the deerate to be applied to achieve the desired room temperature. Allowing for air handler defrost cycles, and size the chiller according to that and the flow rate required to deliver the correct cooling capacity. A single chiller and air handler can be installed in an hour or two in the right conditions so its vital you act quickly when you realise temperatures are not being met.
