Back to the Future - With Ammonia
Back to the Future - With Ammonia (1997)-This paper examines the results of applying up-to-date ammonia refrigeration technology to a frozen vegetable processing plant dating to the 1960’s. The project was initiated in order to meet increasing production demands, while at the same time seeking methods of reducing the net energy cost per pound of product. Funding of the project was through energy consumption savings, a contribution by the local electrical utility, and reduced operating costs. The technologies implemented include natural gas driven screw compressors with steam generators, plate and frame water cooled condensers, a microprocessor control system and segregation of the loads into multiple temperature levels. A technical discussion of individual components, their effect on savings and plant operation, and a review of results to date are included.
