An ice builder is a process cooling system consisting of an ice reserve submerged in an insulated tank of chilled water. The chilled water is routed to where cooling is required (plate heat exchangers, jacketed vessels etc.)
There is a huge range of potential applications for this system, from fermentation vessels in breweries to heat exchangers in bakeries and farms.
Kilkenny Ice Builders are ideal for pairing with renewable energy sources such as Solar PV, because they operate just like a battery. Ice is built when electricity is cheap and used whenever it’s needed.
