Refrigeration Skid

Project Description

A large agricultural conglomerate contracted Romco to build a rapid chiller capable of reducing thousands of pounds of fresh-picked produce from 35°C to 3°C in only 45 minutes. This massive device sports a vacuum chamber of 2,000 cubic feet and all the mechanicals required to evacuate air and refrigerate at 100,000 BTU per hour. Romco fabricated the frame and enclosure to precise tolerances, installed machinery and controls, and tested the unit prior to shipping within 12 weeks of receipt of order.
