Cándido Vegetables


In the fruits and vegetables company Hortalizas Cándido in Segovia, specialising in carrots, there was a need to replace a direct expansion hydrocooler refrigeration system (due to the penalty in fluorinated refrigerants) with a modern glycol water system. This hydrocooler is responsible for supplying cold water to a system for spraying the vegetables for cleaning and further processing.

With a chiller and its incorporated hydraulic unit, we manage to provide the same cold water power as with the previous system. In addition, an integration with the chiller has been carried out, as they have a photovoltaic installation on the roof of the industry, and thanks to a large storage tank, they manage to produce more cold water at times when they have more sun, as well as varying the start-up stages of the compressors according to the electrical production.
