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).
An oil refinery from the Port of Antwerp asked us if it would be possible to adapt their counterflow cooling tower with axial suction fans so it could still cool the same water flow rate, but to a lower cold water temperature. The cooling tower consists of six cells.
This drying solution is designed to dry glass jars with different sizes and lids. The jars must be dried to allow labeling after they exit the scrubber and are then immediately packed in cardboard boxes.
One of the longest indoor karting tracks in the world is located in the industrial park of Eupen. Since safety is their top priority, Karting Eupen was looking for an efficient ventilation system to prevent CO-poisoning by exhaust gases.
Our customer, a producer of baby and infant nutrition faced the challenge to de-dust lids with a complex shape. Almeco helped them by building a custom made innovative installation that is able to blow off dust and all possible other contaminations.
Almeco has designed a series of Ronair dryers for Sealynx, a major player in sealing for the automotive industry. After the extruded sealing profiles went through the cooling bath and just before they are rolled up, drying of the profiles is necessary. A lot of manufacturers therefore make use of compressed air.
Our client realizes custom-made containers. These containers contain an electric generator that is driven by a diesel engine. The cooling of the container is crucial for the proper functioning of the machines. Therefore, the manufacturer relied on Almeco for the supply of two fans of type AVK1000 in Atex execution.
Our customer, market leader AB InBev, was looking for a solution to eliminate water drops off of big PET bottles with different sizes ranging from 6 to 18 liters. Special attention had to be paid to the drying of the cap and valve at the top of the bottle.
