Application

Filtration in salt water at sub-ambient temperatures.

Brief

Schleicher & Schuell required us to design a low temperature recirculating chiller with high cooling power and four-stage high-pressure pumping in a saline environment.

Grant's skill and technology

Our knowledge of refrigeration cooling, closed loop high performance pumping and materials technology enabled us to offer a unique solution suitable for use in a harsh environment.

The outcome

Grant designed and manufactured a closed-loop re-circulating chiller, offering stable, accurate temperature control. This was coupled to a high performance pump all housed in a bright annealed stainless steel case. The system was supplied to the Scottish Association for Marine Science and connected to a cross-flow filtration system. Similar systems have been sold for whisky filtration.
