Royal Armouries has J&E Hall cooling tech installed

A top tourist attraction in the north of England has installed J&E Hall cooling technology to protect museum artefacts from the ravages of infestation.

A suit of armour at The Royal Armouries in Leeds.

The Royal Armouries in Leeds attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year and its national collection of exhibits feature a wide range of objects. The museum accepts exhibits of all sizes but many arrive in poor condition, for example they may be carrying insects which can cause damage and these bugs can infest other artefacts once on show in the museum.

New exhibits spend five days in quarantine at low temperatures before being defrosted and made ready for display. A new freezer room has been installed at the Royal Armouries with the addition of a J&E Hall Fusion commercial condensing unit to help with this.

The J&E Hall range of Fusion commercial condensing units are the solution for commercial refrigeration installations where noise, size and reliability are key. Housed in a cabinet made of electro-galvanised mild steel with anti-corrosion treatment and coated in baked polyester powder paint, the units are able to withstand stringent weather testing.

The integral IP54 rated control panel provides further protection to all essential electrical components. All units are acoustically lined. Fusion scroll units house the Copeland scroll compressor and the standard Fusion range houses a highly-reliable reciprocating compressor fitted with jacket to further reduce noise. All condensing units come complete with components fitted during manufacture to save the installer time and money.

The cooling system for the new freezer operates in a temperature range of -24 degrees Celsius to -28 degrees Celsius and runs on R448 – a low GWP refrigerant.

Andrew Hegarty of installer ACME Facilities Group, said: “We chose the J&E Hall system for the freezer because we know we receive excellent reliability from the product and superb technical back-up from J&E Hall.”
