Medium temperature system
The medium temperature system operates on R134a refrigerant with a suction temperature of -10°C and condensing at the design condition of 43°C.
The system has two multiplex racks fitted with six Bock-type HGX6/1410 eco compressors.
The refrigeration requirement for the R134a system is 648.77kW split over the two multiplex racks, one of the biggest systems installed by the Group.
This is known as a cascade system. The
The plant operating conditions recorded to date:
Minimum Average Maximum
kVA 80 150 235
Amps 120 240 360
The connected load for the entire refrigeration plant is 800A per phase.
As one can see from these figures, that were monitored during both average summer conditions and high ambient temperatures of up to 34°C, that the running conditions of the system are very favourable for energy savings.
