ECEX Air Intake Screens boost malt house refrigeration efficiency

Eastern Counties Refrigeration (ECR) recommended that ECEX Air Intake Screens be fitted to four large condensers at Boortmalt’s malting plant in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, to prevent clogging and improve their performance.

The ECEX Air Intake 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.

ECR, a partner of leading multi-specialist engineering contractor ECEX, suggested mounting the heavy-duty commercial grade Air Intake Screens to stop debris blocking the condensers and they were were manufactured and installed promptly by ECEX engineers.

The screens, which come with a 10-year warranty, are ideal for installation on coils, air handling units, cooling towers, louvres and other HVAC equipment, and can be hosed or brushed clean in minutes. They offer a fast return on investment because they significantly reduce maintenance costs, downtime, wear on plant and energy use as well as improving productivity.

A delighted Johan Abbink, managing director of ECR, said: “We had great communication with ECEX and they were thoroughly professional throughout the contract. I’ve also had really good feedback from my customer. The ECEX guys were neat and tidy, and the job was completed as they said it would be on time and to budget.”
