Invisible doors for energy-efficient temperature separation

“Our ambition is to halve our CO2 emissions per euro of turnover by no less than 50% compared to 2010,” says Erik-Jan Termaten, Energy Project Manager at Sligro Food Group Nederland BV “Limiting our electricity and gas consumption plays a crucial role in this. We pay particular attention to this in both our existing and new locations. ”

As an example Termaten mentions the 25,280 m² large new building in Deventer, which has been designed and built according to the BREEAM-NL “Outstanding” certification criteria.

New product combination

“Optimal separation is crucial, especially with deep-freeze cells,” says Deweerdt. “Not only to guarantee optimal temperature separation, but above all to prevent moisture entry and problems such as snow, fog and ice formation. After all, this can lead to significant energy and efficiency losses, high cleaning costs and even product or personal injury. With this in mind and in close collaboration with Sligro and the University of Ghent, we have carefully inventoried the conditions and processes in and around deep-freeze cells. This has led to the development of unique, slim, flexible and fully controllable Airstop and Powerstream setups, with which different temperature zones can be separated even more efficiently. The various product combinations were of course also applied in Sligro’s new distribution center in Deventer, where we had to deal with two types of partitioning: between the cooled (4 ° C) and non-cooled areas (20 ° C) and between the cooled areas and freezer cells (-24 ° C). ”

Air curtain with high and low air volume

Comments Off on Air curtain with high and low air volume

The air curtain technology uses so-called volume systems and high-pressure systems. The difference lies in the air flow and in the amount of air required thereby. The volume systems move a large volume of air. The air is swelling
out of the nozzle and forms an airbag. As can be seen in the thermal image, this is not bundled, which is necessary for a separation of the temperature zones. In high-pressure systems, the air is forced out of the special nozzle like a jet and remains visible as a beam in the thermal image. Here a clear zero point is visible.

Heat photographing

The thermographic images show a high pressure and a volume system in comparison. The two temperature zones are shown in the thermal image recording in yellow and blue. The dark green stripe, visible in the horizontal system, shows the precisely aligned separation air jet. The bright green areas next to it show the physical
entrained air.

Use of air curtains in deep freezing: how does it work?

Comments Off on Use of air curtains in deep freezing: how does it work?

In the deep-freeze sector, the requirements for an air curtain system are far-reaching. This is not only about the delimitation of the two temperature ranges, but above all about minimizing the entry of humidity into the freezer area. The incoming humidity is visible without shielding by mist, snow and ice formation and leads to a hygiene vulnerability. Most air curtain systems in the freezer compartment condition their entire air jet with heat. This warmer air can absorb more moisture than the cold air in the freezer and thus transports the incoming humidity.

Another possibility is the use of a second air jet. Based on the principle of the high pressure system with a defined directed air jet, a second jet of air is generated. Only this one is conditioned. This so-called insulation air jet compensates for the humidity and in this way minimizes the entry of moisture into the freezer area.

Second air jet

Example of an air curtain system in the freezer area. It can be seen here that the different temperature ranges (cold side in blue and hot side in red) are separated by a horizontal air jet. The yellow area represents the separation air jet. The green area shows the insulation air jet, which is responsible for the compensation of the humidity. These two layers of air are parallel and do not mix.

Optimal separation with freezer cells

Masterveil uses the Powerstream product at the passages for refrigerated and frozen storage, with serious temperature gradients in some places. Deweerdt explains: “Especially with freezer cells, optimum separation is crucial. If this is not the case, you will get snow, fog and ice formation, with all its consequences. Consider, for example, energy and efficiency losses, but also high cleaning costs and product or even injury damage. With this in mind, we developed Powerstream. Characteristic of these air curtains is that they have a small floor area and fully controllable air flows. This makes the end result predictable and the payback time short. “

The “Airstop” air curtain from Masterveil
in the installed state

The “Airstop” air curtain systems from Masterveil, Viersen, with their patented air flow system ensure a permanent and metered vertical or horizontal air flow. This airflow not only separates two temperature zones, but also bans dusts, insects and odors. Gates up to 6 m high can be sealed off with a horizontal system using a special high-pressure nozzle technology. The longest Masterveil horizontal air curtain had a length of about 180 m. He was supplied by several fans.

The systems are available in several material variants. In addition to the standard version with Aluzink coating, painted and powder-coated surfaces are also possible. For hygiene areas, the systems are also available in a stainless steel version.

Reference

With the VEOtec, Löhne, a distribution partner for Masterveil in Germany, a project was implemented in the central warehouse of the discounter Penny in Cologne. The requirements were a high shielding efficiency in a limited space with minimal energy consumption. The solution here was Masterveil’s “Powerstream DS-Block” system, an air curtain system for deep freezing, in the “Airlock” version. In addition to the basic version with two air layers, a further air jet is integrated, which further increases the efficiency of the base system.

The result: a proven foreclosure (at least 80%) of the climate zones by zero point measurement and a situation without fog, snow and ice formation, the energy expenditure was minimized as required. For this purpose, a footprint of approximately 0.15 m² was required per side.
