Our refrigeration solutions for the food industry

Whatever the season, consumers now expect fresh food to be available at all times. That is why reliable refrigeration immediately after the harvest is essential. During the manufacturing process in particular, temperature plays a key role in keeping produce as fresh and ripe as required. And that is exactly what our refrigeration solutions do.

Projects in the food industry

A strong team: food industry and refrigeration technology

Precision at the highest level: when it comes to the production, freshness, storage and shelf life of food and drink, reliable and effective refrigeration capacity is essential. There’s no room for temperature fluctuations. Quite the opposite: a single degree can make all the difference when it comes to hygienically flawless production and storage processes. Standards are high, and rightly so. Imprecise refrigeration could cause products to ferment or decay in an uncontrolled or premature way – and thus reduce their durability.

With our decades of experience, we are a strong partner who can assist your cooling process with our refrigeration solutions. And one thing is for sure: conditions differ from situation to situation, and every requirement for refrigeration with cold brine in the food industry is unique. The perfect refrigeration solution for a harvesting business is not necessarily the best solution for a dairy – and vice versa.

That is why we at ENGIE Refrigeration offer a range of different chillers as solutions to complex problems in a variety of fields. Our advisors can also call on deep expertise and find a safe and energy-efficient refrigeration solution for even the most challenging conditions. We are by your side from the very beginning: from performance calculation, design and integration to training your employees.

Maximum energy efficiency with our QUANTUM series

We are convinced that nobody who has owned a QUANTUM would ever want to refrigerate in any other way. The model versions are designed and optimised for a range of different requirements, but they all have a few things in common:

  • Turbo compressor: Allows full- and partial-load EER.
  • Oil-free system: For lower service costs and fewer leaks.
  • Frequency converter on every compressor: Offers fully continuous power control and is thus particularly efficient under partial load.
  • Open-flash economizer: Improves the EER value without increasing the machine’s space requirements.
  • Multiple compressor design: Guarantees reliable operation through a redundant structure.
  • Flooded tube bundle evaporator: A small temperature difference between chilled medium and refrigerant makes the QUANTUM highly efficient.
  • Durable, high-quality fittings and sensors: These features make the chiller less susceptible to errors or failures.
  • Start-up current of compressors under five amp: Say goodbye to peak current loads.
  • Control with PLC: Greater regulation and control options for the chiller provide major flexibility.
  • Protection class IP54: Safety first – QUANTUM machines are equipped with protection against physical contact and spray water.
  • Large range of electrical options: Every QUANTUM can be adapted individually.

An impressively wide SPECTRUM

SPECTRUM Water is something special. This is because it is the world's first and production-ready water-cooled chiller with oil-free high-lift turbo-compressors in the performance class from 170 to 1,100 kilowatts nominal cooling capacity and at chilled medium outlet temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. This makes the SPECTRUM Water chiller ideal for all cooling processes in food production, processing and storage, which are in the range of standard refrigeration and require a maximum of operational reliability with negative chilled medium outlet temperatures at the same time.

Your advantages with SPECTRUM:

  • Precisely designed for all MT process cooling applications down to -10°C chilled medium temperature.
  • Highest seasonal energy efficiency with SEPR-MT values up to 4.96- for minimum operating costs and CO2 emissions
  • Absolute operational reliability due to the smart machine concept "made in Germany".
  • The use of the low-GWP refrigerant R-1234ze is considered future-proof according to current legislation.
  • Reduced space requirement for installation while maintaining excellent space utilization efficiency.
  • SPECTRUM Water has very low maintenance requirements due to the oil-free machine design.
  • Minimal noise and vibration levels thanks to magnetic bearing of the compressor shaft.

Natural cooling with the AMONUM

Natural cooling with the AMONUM

Consumers increasingly demand fresh, healthy and sustainable foods. And this trend is unlikely to disappear in the near future. The AMONUM with the natural refrigerant ammonia is a good way to make refrigeration as eco-friendly as possible even during the production process. Ammonia does not damage the ozone layer or contribute to global warming. The AMONUM can thus be used to improve customers’ trust, as the eco-friendly production process can be communicated to them.

Thanks to its smart design, the chiller is of course absolutely safe and provides up to -21 degrees Celsius for brine applications, and up to +16 for process cooling and climate control. The icing on the cake: the electrical cabinet is completely integrated in the housing. This saves valuable space, which is especially important for complex production processes.

The following factors make the AMONUM so impressive:

  • Climate-neutral
  • Low-cost refrigerant
  • Easily available refrigerant
  • Low operating costs
  • Low energy demand during refrigeration
