The main refrigeration system comprises of a high pressure, an intermediate and a low pressure circuit refrigeration system which serves 3 Chill/Freezer stores.

High pressure

   The high pressure side has an evaporative condenser on the roof, served by a recirc pump (and a stand by pump), and a fan motor. The sump is protected from freezing by a heater which is in turn protected by a low level float, as is the pump. Liquid generated by the condenser falls under gravity to a liquid receiver. The liquid receiver then supplies liquid to the intercooler and LT pumped vessel when called for.

The HP system is fed by 3 compressors, these compressors are staged on and off based on a signal from a pressure transducer sensing the intercooler pressure. The intercooler has a liquid level which is fed from the liquid receiver and controlled via a series of level switches and 2 off liquid feed solenoids.

These compressor operate independent of the LP compressors and maintain a set pressure within the intercooler.

The intercooler has 2 liquid pumps (run and standby) for use when chill mode is selected within any of the 3 stores.

Low Pressure

    The low pressure system is fed by 3 compressors, these compressors operate at 50% 67% 85% and 100% each and are also staged on a signal from a pressure transducer sensing the LT surge drum pressure. The LT vessel has a liquid level which is fed from the Intercooler and is also controlled via a series of level switches and 2 off liquid feed solenoids.

These LT compressor operate to maintain a set pressure within the LT surge vessel. The LT surge vessel has 2 liquid pumps (run and standby) for use when freezer mode is selected within any of the 3 stores.

Freezer stores

There are 3 freezer/chill stores, each store has 4 coolers/evaporators operating on pumped liquid overfeed system from either the LT drum (freeze) or the intercooler drum (chill). These are selected manually by changing valve positions over within the roof void for each cooler and running the liquid pumps accordingly. Each cooler defrosts using hot gas (discharge gas) from them main plant these are on timed intervals from a controller with the evaporator panel.
