Celebrated Cornish ice cream producer Kelly’s wanted to upgrade a process chiller to a more powerful and energy efficient unit to meet the growing demand for the clotted-cream based product.
Acclaimed ice cream producer Kelly’s of Cornwall whose product can be found in leading retailers including Tesco and Sainsbury turned to ICS Cool Energy to supply an upgrade of the process chiller for cooling the pasteuriser.
The process had to be energy efficient to work at an ambient temperature of up to 32°C, supplying fluid to the process at 15°C and returning at 20°C. As well as class leading efficiency, it also needed to be quiet in operation as there are private residences nearby.
Following a full consultation, an Aptus air cooled A rated chiller was specified that is capable of extracting 228kW at the above conditions, with precise temperature control.
ICS Cool Energy delivers process cooling across industries and has special experience in food production and the dairy sector where process control as well as hygiene is essential in all sizes of businesses from the niche producer to global player.
