Free Cooling Upgrade for Expanding Scotland Dairy Saves ££££££s

Keeping operational costs low whilst maximising production capacity are key considerations for clients within the food & beverage sector. One of Scotland’s largest, independent dairy farms, invited Aqua to propose a new, energy efficient, cooling system that would support their expanding product range. 


The dairy had installed a new ultrafiltration (UF) plant to facilitate in production of their protein yoghurt product. Ultrafiltration is one of four different membrane filtration processes used within the industry. There were two legacy chiller units on site, along with heat exchangers. One heat exchanger was being upgraded with a new scrape surface version. As a result of these changes, cooling capacity needed to increase to ensure -3°C glycol could be supplied to the process tanks, UF plant and heat exchangers.  


Aqua designed and supplied a custom designed solution, comprising two air cooled Aqua Pro Plus packaged chiller units, and a stand-alone free cooler.

Aqua Pro Plus Chillers

Our Aqua Pro Plus chiller units incorporate high efficiency scroll compressors, giving ultimate capacity control when compared to large screw compressors. Each unit has two independent circuits, with 3 scroll compressors on each.

Whilst the chillers are efficient just by themselves, the ability to add free cooling to the system boosted potential energy savings even further.

The dairy process was able to be configured to include a separated return from the ultrafiltration plant and heat exchangers.  This resulted in an average return temperature of 18°C, making free cooling a possibility.
