UK-based plastics packaging firm Closures has installed IsoCool’s cooling systems for its site to implement energy-saving initiatives that could save the firm more than £52,000 a year.
Closures is a producer of in-mould-label cream pot containers and lids and more than two billion closures of the dairy sector every year.
Earlier this year the firm expanded to equip 12 injection-moulding machines and hence got IsoCool installed to provide proper cooling system for the site, backed by a Carbon Trust loan, as reported by PackagingNews.
Closures director Peter Acres said that IsoCool produced detailed cost analyses of their existing energy consumption compared with their new system.
The system includes an adiabatic cooling system for the hydraulic oil coolers as will as a multi-circuit chiller and air blast cooler for the moulds to provide partial and up to 100% free cooling during low ambient conditions.
