Feldmeier Ice Builders are designed to generate and store cooling capacity for use at a later time in applications where chilled water is used for comfort or process cooling. Ice generation takes place during no-load periods, storing up enough refrigeration capacity to meet daily requirements, utilizing smaller compressor equipment than would be required for instantaneous cooling. In addition, peak process cooling usually occurs at the same time as peak energy demand, so off-peak ice generation can provide lower energy costs.
Feldmeier Ice Builders are constructed with all stainless steel water contact surfaces, including the refrigerant coil, air agitation piping and box liner, for long-term corrosion resistance. Feldmeier Ice Builders can be designed with ammonia or HFC refrigerant. Stainless steel ASME certified Ammonia Surge Drums including piping; mounting supports and controls can also be provided.
