Special Product’s Line – Italy

Background

Special Product’s Line is an Italian pharmaceutical company specialized in contract manufacturing for top national and multinational companies. In addition, SPL carries out research and development activities for new formulations.

Purposes

We have been commissioned to take care of the replacement of the previous HVAC system and to expand it in order to provide adequate cooling to all the plant areas: warehouse, production facility, laboratories and offices. The new HVAC system will have to significantly improve energy efficiency and reliability.

Project

For this project, we have developed two special air-cooled chillers with oil-free centrifugal compressors and a total cooling capacity of 2400 kW (682 RT). The chillers integrate both the Free Cooling operation and Evaporative System, the advanced adiabatic system developed by our R&D department. In this way, the units are able to ensure maximum levels of energy efficiency all year round (EER 4.34 W/W*): using Free Cooling during the colder months and Evaporative System during the warmer ones. 

*Cooling kW/RT = 0.92 – Cooling EER BTU/Wh = 12.946
