How to maintain the correct temperature with semi-welded plate heat exchangers

Maintaining the internal temperature of the huge distribution centre at a constant level is the job for two semi-welded plate heat exchangers fromAlfa Laval. The two plate heat exchangers handle a total duty of 1500 kWand are part of a central cooling system that feeds unit coolers to provide direct cooling to the main produce storage area and subsidiary section for meat and fish.

To ensure that all of its products arrives at its stores fresh, Morrisons has established a chain of giant distribution depots. The latest of these is a chill distribution centre covering 62,500 square metres that provides chilled storage for fresh produce, meat and fish.

Constant temperature with plate heat exchangers

Maintaining the internal temperature of the huge building at a constant +20°C is the job of two Alfa Laval MK15-BWFGR semi-welded plate heat exchangers. The two Alfa Laval PHEs handle a total duty of 1500 kW and are part of a central cooling system that feeds unit coolers to provide direct cooling to the main produce storage area and subsidiary sections for meat and fish. Designed and installed by Alfa Laval business partner, J&E Hall, the cooling system uses glycol and ammonia and is fitted with variable speed drives to operate in cascade fashion for maximum efficiency.

MK15-BWFGR semi-welded plate heat exchangers provides great energy efficiency.
