The choice of a refrigeration system for an industrial or commercial enterprise is a task so responsible that it can be compared in its importance with the profession of a sapper, who, as you know, is mistaken only once.
Why is it so? It’s simple — refrigeration equipment is one of the most technically complex, and therefore the most expensive devices of climate technology. Moreover, the main difficulties for the customer begin at the design stage of the refrigeration system, ArxProektStroy specialists, who have rich experience in refrigeration supply design, can tell you more about this.
Selection of parameters of the refrigeration supply system
Modern refrigeration technology is able to quickly create and maintain operating temperatures in various ranges for a long time and do this with great accuracy. But it can do all this only if you have a well-composed detailed project in your hands, taking into account all the nuances of the work of a particular enterprise.

As a basis for drawing up a project, specialists are required to provide the following information:
floor plans of the customer’s production facilities, where it is required to install a refrigeration system;
a detailed statement of all customer requirements for the system design, taking into account possible equipment upgrades in the future;
complete information about the customer’s equipment that consumes cold (modes of operation, power, estimated fuel consumption, etc.).
The quality of the project directly depends on how fully the information required for the drafting of the project is presented. And, of course, the price issue. The situation is complicated by the fact that industrial refrigeration solutions are expensive and not always clear to the end user, so it is very important at the initial stage to establish a trusting relationship between the project company and the customer.
Each consumer has its own refrigeration system
An additional difficulty in choosing a refrigeration system is introduced by the fact that it is in refrigeration that there are practically no standard solutions, and each object requires its own, largely unique set of refrigeration equipment, taking into account the specific requirements of the customer.
As a rule, a chiller or several chillers form the basis of the refrigeration system in a large industrial or commercial facility. Industrial chillers are refrigerating machines with high cooling capacity, which are designed to operate at loads from 500 kW. The selection of the right chiller depends on the specific conditions of the customer.
You should know that there are many varieties of chillers, the most common of which are as follows:
air-cooled chillers with axial fans;
air-cooled chillers with centrifugal fans;
chillers with water cooling of the condenser;
chillers with remote condenser and air cooling.
Therefore, the choice of the required type of chiller must be entrusted to specialists. Moreover, modern chillers not only produce cold, but also produce heat in parallel, which can then be used for industrial or domestic purposes, which increases the energy efficiency of the enterprise.
So, without a well-designed project, the refrigeration supply system is unlikely to be effective. In order not to get an inefficient and at the same time expensive solution, you should contact a reliable design company, which will be able to choose the best option through a feasibility study of different options.
The criterion for such a comparison can be such parameters as the specific costs for the creation of the refrigeration system itself, the specific energy costs for the operation of components and assemblies of the refrigeration system, as well as the cost per unit of cold and heat generated by the system.
As you can see, even at the design stage, not only one-time costs for the creation of refrigeration supply are estimated, but also operating costs, which must be calculated and optimized in advance. This is the only way to justify the customer’s money invested “in the cold”.
