An agroindustrial company processing dates is served by several chillers installed in uncovered areas where they suffered from high ambient temperature, direct exposure to sunlight and dusty environment. This led to lowered efificency, repeated failure of the mechanical parts due to the increased load and the deterioration of the evaporator fins.
Installingroof cover for chiller units has positively affected the performance of the cooling system, increase energy efficiency and reduce mechanical failures, saving 5% of the total energy consumption.
