Our cooling systems
Whether the product requires a defined cooling process, process times are to be shortened or workers are to be provided with a more pleasant working environment; cooling systems are installed downstream of many furnace processes.
Here too, Airtec meets every requirement, from a simple cooling chamber for manual, batch-based charging, a continuous cooling system with or without conveyor technology or even a turnkey automatic system.
The cooling systems are always specially adapted to your requirements. Of particular note here are horizontal and vertical airflow, as well as direct ventilation systems via, for example, high-performance nozzles for particularly effective cooling.
Further differences in the continuous cooling plant are the continuous, discontinuous or quasi-continuous conveying of the products. The latter represents a fixed cycle which automatically conveys the products forward. The advantage of discontinuous and quasi-continuous conveyance is the option of using lift gates as these significantly increase the energy efficiency of the systems and reduce noise pollution. It is also possible to regulate the circulating air volume automatically, for example via frequency converters, to further reduce the amount of air escaping and the noise level. Even in continuous processes, it is possible to improve these aspects using curtains or clever air routing.
The entire conveyor technology can generally be planned, engineered and manufactured by us at the Rhede site. Here, we offer a wide range of different conveyor technologies and custom solutions. This also includes safety technology such as protective fences and light barriers, as well as complete commissioning and safety-related interlinking of the overall plant.
The actual dissipation of the heat energy can be realised, depending on requirements, by supplying fresh air or by using water heat exchangers. These can be connected to a water system provided by the customer or to a cooling system that we have engineered and supplied. These are specially designed for the desired cycle time or cooling time of your components.
In our cooling systems, too, we pay special attention to the high-quality insulation of the outer shell to keep your operating costs low and to prevent condensation in undesirable places.
Thanks to our many years of experience in this field, we can supply you with your perfectly coordinated system!
