Thermax Ltd. won the ‘REFCOLD Emerson Award’ in Industrial Refrigeration category for two of its innovative products – the ‘Hybrid Chiller’ and ‘Ultra Low Pressure Vapour Absorption Chiller’ at REFCOLD India 2018. The REFCOLD India Emerson Award that recognises innovative and outstanding energy efficient projects & products in the Cold Chain & Refrigeration industry was conferred to Thermax Ltd. on 22nd November, 2018 in Gujarat.
The annual event of REFCOLD India, is an initiative of ISHRAE & NürnbergMesse India, who have been actively working towards the growth of Refrigeration and Cold Chain Industry with an objective to bring forward the best technology solutions and increase the overall growth of this sector. In this event, companies from various sections of refrigeration & cold chain industry participate and showcase their innovative products.
Thermax’s hybrid chiller is a unique combination of electrical chiller and absorption chiller technologies. The award winning chiller harnesses the advantages of both electrical chiller and absorption chiller technologies in one product. This high efficiency Hybrid Chiller can produce brine temperature as low as -40oC, while reducing power consumption by 50% compared to the electrical chiller, which consumes more electricity as we go lower on the temperature scale.
Thermax’s Ultra Low Pressure Vapour Driven Chiller works on the principle of providing the customers profit from waste heat. The chiller uses very low pressure water vapour (close to atmospheric pressure of 1.01325 bar) as heat source. It can also recover the water which otherwise is emitted into the atmosphere as vapour. This technology is used in food processing industries like fried potato chips and snacks, sweets etc., where lot of water vapour at atmospheric pressure is emitted through the chimney. The chiller also finds application in other industries like chemicals and petrochemical industries.
Through this green technology, Thermax encourages its customer to make energy efficient and cost-saving cooling choices with shorter payback time. The product also helps our customers in reducing carbon emissions per annum.
Winning this prestigious award was indeed a proud moment for Thermax Ltd.
