The Client –
Hampshire Based Cosmetics Manufacturer
The Challenge –
Product Development Trial
The Solution –
Bespoke Hire Package
For the research and development laboratory at a leading cosmetic company, a bespoke Chiller Hire solution proved to be the answer when they were faced with challenges during product development.
In this scenario, system flexibility was key. The lab was working under the constraints of a very specific time scale when cooling the product. It was critical to ensure it wasn’t cooled too quickly or too slowly, otherwise product would be compromised and have quality and cost implications further down the line.
Being a cosmetic manufacturer, our client had an existing chilled water supply on site. However, for the trial they needed their cooling water to be completely independent so that there was no risk to day to day production in their main plant.
To ensure the laboratory could vary pressure, temperature and flow rates, Aqua supplied the following:
- Variable speed pump – this enabled both pressure and flow rates to be changed as and when required
- Heat exchanger with a 3-way value – this gave full control over the temperature
- 30kW chiller
- System design and installation
With a flexible hire agreement in place, our client only rents the equipment for as long as they need it. Once optimum flow rates and conditions have been established for mainstream production of the product the above equipment can be easily off hired with just one phone call to our hire desk.
