Frigel unveils portable chillers with advanced control technology at K

Frigel, the self-proclaimed “pioneer in intelligent process cooling” based near Florence, Italy, promises yet another ‘first’ at K 2016: The company will introduce its portable chiller line and teach attendees how adanced 3PR control technology with Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity on its Microgel chiller/temperature control units can improve productivity and profitability. Stop by stand A60 in hall 11 for a lesson.

Frigel also will introduce K visitors to the company’s enhanced and expanded line of Heavygel air-cooled central chillers, which also feature the new control platform. It offers users numerous options while helping them lower costs with “industry-leading” energy efficiency ratings. Designed for global applications, the Heavygel air-cooled chiller line extends to more than 30 models, including units capable of operation in ambient temperatures up to 55o C (131o F).

Frigel has been developing intelligent process cooling systems since the 1960s. Its closed-loop Ecodry cooling system is installed at more than 5,500 manufacturing plants worldwide. An environmentally friendly cooling solution, Ecodry keeps cooling water clean and delivers substantial savings on water, chemicals, energy and maintenance. Frigel also manufactures and markets the Turbogel and Thermogel TICs, Aquagel pumping and filtration equipment and Heavygel central chillers.

“For decades Frigel has helped plastic processors worldwide leverage advanced process cooling technology as a way to more efficiently produce high-quality parts and products while saving money in the process,” said Frigel CEO Duccio Dorin. “Now, the use of the control technology on our Microgel and Heavygel products takes it to a new level. Additionally, our enhanced line of Heavygel chillers gives users greater flexibility in choosing a system that best meets their production and cost-saving goals,” added Dorin.
