The Free Cooling Concept
In simple terms, a Free Cooler uses low temperature ambient air to cool the process water, rather than refrigerant cooling. This enables you to keep your manufacturing/production process and/or temperature sensitive equipment cool at practically zero cost. This short animation gives an outline of how the concept works and the advantages it brings.
As the video explains, in the UK with a typical system set up, the ambient air temperature is low enough most of the year to achieve cooling literally for free. If the ambient air temperature increases, the system works with the traditional refrigeration system to give partial Free Cooling – still massively reducing power usage and associated costs!
Hiring a Free Cooler allows you to retro fit the Free Cooling concept to your existing equipment – so you gain from the subsequent energy savings but without investing in additional technology. Renting the Free Cooler technology gives you inbuilt flexibility – you can off-hire the equipment during the summer months and re-hire as temperatures drop.
As an example, a typical 300kW system operating with a fluid temperature of 15°C can achieve savings of £49,000 per year. For many customers this saving makes the outright purchase of Free Cooling technology a very easy decision because payback is so rapid – but if you retro-fit with Hire equipment you start saving immediately. In addition, based on this example, you save over 200,000 kg of C02 – a considerable saving for any company with environmental issues at its heart.
You’ll also safe-guard the lifetime of your equipment. If your existing Cooling system doesn’t have to run for so long each year then it will last much longer overall and keep maintenance costs at a minimum. You also have built in back-up – if your Chiller unit so fail for any reason you’ll still have the Free Cooler in operation.
