Air intake screens boost refrigeration efficiency in malt house

28 July 2018

ECEX air intake screens have been fitted to four large condensers at Boortmalt's malting plant in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, to prevent clogging and improve their performance. 

The screens have solved the problems of inadequate heat rejection and insufficient process cooling during hot weather and other periods of high demand due to debris previously building up on the condensers.

Grain from the malt house's production process, airborne pollen, insects, leaves and other detritus was being drawn onto the coils, clogging them within just a few weeks of cleaning and meaning the condensers were working well below peak efficiency. Repeated pressure washing of the coils was costly, time-consuming and potentially damaging to the delicate coil fins.

The screens can offer a fast return on investment because they significantly reduce maintenance costs, downtime, wear on plant and energy use as well as improving productivity.
