Citrique Belge in Tienen is one of the largest citric acid producers in the world. As a part of their Triple P programme, Citrique Belge also devotes extra attention to the relationship with the environment. When a small number of people living in the vicinity pointed out an annoying noise that was sometimes produced by a number of cooling towers, Citrique Belge decided to investigate how this situation could be rectified.
During the construction of a new production line in 2012, Almeco was closely involved with the development of process cooling. In 2013 we supplied an open cooling tower for cooling 120 m³/hour from 47.9°C to 28.3°C at a wet bulb temperature of 20 °C (discharged cooling capacity 2,734 kW).
