Edy’s Grand Ice Cream, ROCKAWAY, NJ
Edy’s Grand Ice Cream needed a cold storage system at their Rockaway, N.J. plant that would meet the increasing demands on CFC’s and HCFC refrigerants.
This ammonia refrigeration system was prefabricated in Shambaugh & Son’s Fabrication Facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana, skid mounted and shipped to the Rockaway, NJ facility for cost efficient installation.
SCOPE OF SERVICES
Shambaugh & Son dual-designed an ammonia refrigerant system that uses R-22 initially, and, when required, be converted to ammonia. To help keep energy costs to a minimum, an under-floor freeze protection system was designed to circulate with glycol, which is heated from the compressor’s discharge gas through a shell-and-tube heat exchanger. The ammonia refrigeration controls systems, engineered and installed by Shambaugh and Son’s Controls Division, are PLC5, and are monitored via computer and telephone modem.
