The customer was looking to add a new process to their production line to make the coating procedure more sustainable.
Previously, they would heat the solution up and then dispose of it after every batch. Adding in a cooling step to their process would mean they could use the solution for multiple batches without affecting the quality of the end result.
We supplied a Parker ICEP Chiller to the Liverpool site, including coolant lines and a bespoke stainless spring heat exchanger to cool the chemical solution they use as part of the coating process.
The robust and reliable Parker chiller was commissioned to the customer’s requirements with the coolant lines designed by Matt Banks (PPS HVAC Technical Sales Manager) and manufactured by the R&G Fluid Power Group company Merseyflex.
UKHE supplied the heat exchanger, making a high-end stainless coil which exceeded the specification and will deliver years of repeated use in other applications on the production site – complete with brackets to allow removal and cleaning as a site task.
Parker and PPS have been working together in the UK for many years and were the perfect fit for this project.
The customer was happy with market leading products from Parker supplied and installed by a local team with technical expertise.
