APPLICATIONS

Fishing Industry:

Supply and dosing of flake ice in the working lines from a centralized ice making plant by pneumatic transport.

Fishing Boats:

Installation on board of ice making machines which make ice with sweet water or seawater. Nowadays we have more than 300 references installed in fishing boats.

Fishing Ports:

Installation of centralized ice making plant for supply ice to the boats or to the fish markets for the supply of the wholesale supply.

Central Markets:

Centralized ice making plants for wholesalers and retailers in the distribution net of the market.

Fish Wholesalers:

Ice making plants with ice storage silos in the storage and distribution plants.

Fisheries:

Installation of medium or small size ice making plants.

Refrigeration Installers:

Supply of ice generators or complete ice making plants to be installed in their customers.

Tuna Vessels Fleet:

Equipment of the Spanish and French fleet that fishes bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean, with flake ice factories and cooling of sea water to achieve a quick cooling of the product.

Bluefin Tuna Exportation:

Installation of flake ice factories in main bluefin tuna exporters to Japan, to preserve the quality of this product in fresh during its moving by air transport to the fish markets of Japan.

Bread Making:

Installation of ice makers in the main of bread factories in Spain, to control the quality of the mass during the kneading process.

Horticultural Industry:

Installation of ice makers in this sector to preserve the quality of its products during its transport by truck to the main markets in Europe.

Ice Sale:

Installation of ice makers and storage silos for ice selling (packaged or in bulk).

Ice slurry for fishing and agro-food industry

The ice slurry obtained with our AVALANCHA has a smooth texture, a high energy efficiency and a high concentration of ice crystals, which gives a high cooling capacity for its use as refrigerant in the rapid cooling of vegetables, fish processing, meat processing, dairy processing, etc.

Concrete Cooling in Public Works - Pre-Cooling:

Nowadays the usual way for the concrete cooling is the cooling of some of its components before the kneading. Among the main components that form part of the concrete are aggregates, sand, water and cement. Since most of the heat in the concrete is contained in these components, they are cooled primarily: water, aggregates and, less frequently, sand. The cooling of the cement, due to the technical difficulties that it raises, is almost not used.

Concrete Cooling in Public Works - Cooling by Water:

The simplest system is to cool the free kneading water to a temperature of 1 to 5ºC, instead of using the water at room temperature. We use water chillers in 2 or 3 stages, in order to reduce the energy consumption of the cooling process. The cold water is stored in isolated tanks of 20 to 50 m³ capacity for its use.

Concrete Cooling in Public Works - Flake-Ice:

A very used system to cool the concrete is to use a part of water of kneading in the form of flake ice. The ice melts during kneading, providing 80 Kcal / Kg of ice from its latent heat of fusion as a cooling effect. This allows absorbing a huge amount of concrete's heat, allowing obtaining concrete to the exit of the kneader to temperatures of 18º to 20º C in warm temperatures, in main cases.

Concrete Cooling in Public Works - Aggregates’ Cooling by Water:

When concrete temperatures are required at lower levels, the cooling of aggregates with ice water, either by showering them on the conveyor belts in isolation, or by flooding in silos, where ice water is recirculated. With these systems you can get aggregates between 4° and 8 °C.

Concrete Cooling in Public Works - Aggregates’ Cooling by Air:

The cooling of aggregates by air consists of cooling the aggregate dosed by size, in isolated silos in which a flow of cold air cooled in special refrigeration equipment is recirculated counter currently. This system has the advantage of not using water, which controls the humidity of the aggregates and allows achieving temperatures of the concrete at the outlet of the kneader from 7º to 8º C.
