Re: agriculture refrigeration application
Hello Refrigerants.
I'm new to this and I have to admit to not being in the trade. I grow raspberries in the UK. But am in the process of installing biomass (wood) boilers for heating my glasshouses. In looking for a use for these boilers in the warmer months I thought of using the heat for ammonia evap. cooling to cool the fruits. Does anyone know if this is possible and could it be designed to include a prestorage rapid cool (airblast) system.
Also what would be the minimum temp achievable using this method.
Thanks and sorry to butt in on a thread, I'm not sure how this works yet.
