Cold storage plants are meant to preserve the perishable commodities of food items of a longer period, with retention of the original color, flavor and taste.
Unlike cold storage plants in developed countries, cold storage in our country have perforce adapted technology to local resource availability and needs. But new opportunities emerging and withincreasin
Design & Application Of Pipes In Cold Storages
Cold storage plants are large warehouse equipped with a vapour compression system for refrigeration, traditionally using ammonia as the refrigerant. The system functions through a network consisting of a compressor, condenser, expansion valve and an evaporator.
If the performance of the refrigeration system is to be optimized, it is necessary to ensure that pipes of right dimensions and quality are used across the system. Apart from the intricate pipe network in condensers and evaporators, designated as ‘heat exchangers’, the vapour compression refrigeration system has to include interconnecting pipes for these heat exchangers.
- Pipe sizes normally used : 15mm NB to 200mm
- Black Heavy Plain Ended (BHPE) Steel Pipes IS : 1239/ IS 3589
If you are in business of cold storage, and are settings for ordinary pipes you are running the risk of leakage. Because, nothing really matches up to the superior quality of Tata pipes. It is backed by 50 years of manufacturing expertise in steel tubes and pipes and bears the trusted Tata name.
