First chiller from Sri City dispatched overseas
Thermax executed its first export consignment manufactured at the Absorption Cooling & Heating division’s new stateof-the-art facility in Sri City. This was a repeat order for a 60 TR low temperature hot water driven vapour absorption chiller from UBE Chemicals (Asia) Public Company Limited in Thailand. The chiller helps the customer in the process cooling application of ammonium sulphate, used as a fertiliser in the Asian region and caprolactam used in nylon fibres and resins. The chilled water at 5°C maintains Dinitrogen (N2 ) at its dew point temperature, which in turn is used for polycarbonate diol processing. Hot water, the driving heat source, is produced from steam condensate and process heat recovery. Thermax’s chiller is helping the customer save 2,00,000 units of electricity and reduce carbon footprint equivalent to planting 19,200 trees in a year.
