Adding to its capabilities as a global leader in providing cutting-edge compressed air solutions for a diverse range of markets, Scales Industrial Technologies is now also an exclusive distributor of MTA Chillers with integral free cooling from one of the world’s foremost manufacturers, MTA-USA. MTA-USA features a chiller and free cooling unit all in one, and Scales is proud to consider MTA-USA a business partner.
“A facility that utilizes chilled water year-round, such as a plastic injection molding operation, would be an ideal candidate for a system like this,” explains Joseph Loesing, Sales Manager at Scales’ CarlePlace, NY facility. “Not only can this MTA Chiller deliver significant cost savings, it also saves wear and tear on the entire refrigeration system, increasing productivity and reducing downtime.”
Typically located outdoors, MTA Free Cooling Chillers are popular in areas like the Northeastern U.S.to take advantage of the region’s cold winters. The system automatically makes use of lower temperatures to cool the water when the air temperature falls three to four Fahrenheit degrees below that of the operating equipment supply water temperature requirement. This allows the controls to automatically turn off the refrigeration compressor. “That’s where the savings kick in,” says Loesing. “On days or nights that are somewhat warmer but still cold, it has the ability to cycle the refrigeration compressors to supplement the ambient air cooling. Of course, on truly warm days, the system operates only the refrigeration compressors.”
According to Loesing, MTA Packaged Chillers with integral free-cooling can save as much as 50% on annual cooling costs, conserving electricity by using cooling fans instead of refrigeration compressors and condenser fans. The MTA free-cooling packages also eliminate the need for complex condenser head pressure control systems, while reducing maintenance and replacement parts costs, as well. Additionally, the independent free-cooling section allows the use of simple controls.
“Just as important, these MTA Chillers are environmentally responsible, featuring non-ozone depleting refrigerants and low noise generation,” notes Loesing. MTA Aries FC Chillers are available in 10 models with cooling capacity from 15-50 tons, so there’s a great deal of flexibility to accommodate virtually any water-cooling operation safely and efficiently.
Right now, Scales Industrial Technologies is offering any company with a medium-to-large scale refrigeration operation a free audit to determine whether an MTA Free Cooling Chiller would be a viable addition to your business. Since these chillers represent the latest in refrigeration technology, they’re also an excellent choice for upgrades to existing equipment.
