Ice Bank Systems
Ice Bank systems provide cooling to buildings in a highly efficient manner. Ice is produced, water runs through it, and air passes across that ice-chilled water to drop the air temperature being blown out. Because these systems produce the ice during off-peak usage hours, utility companies typically provide energy price reductions to these clients. Additionally, because ice bank systems are operating in cooler times of the day, costs of energy are further reduced and the system runs more efficiently. This efficiency positively correlates to longer life expectancy of the system. Thus, ice bank systems are becoming more popular as energy costs rise. Because of space and upfront costs, these systems are most often seen in commercial or industrial applications.
What is an Ice Bank System?
Ice bank cooling technology cools considerable quantities of water and enables the dispensing temperature to be kept constant. They consist of a stainless steel coil and a copper coil immersed in a reservoir full of water. The copper coil containing the refrigerant gas freezes the water contained within the reservoir producing a cold supply, which in turn cools the drinking water flowing through the stainless steel coil. In this way the water cooler offers greater performance and in particular it ensures the cleanliness of the water.

For any issue, has access to a vast network of distributors for parts and equipment (including those hard to find).
Keep your ice bank system performing at its optimal level and help ensure its long life by having it properly maintained. This preventive maintenance keeps the ice bank operating at peak efficiency, minimizes unnecessary repairs and down-time, and helps keep energy costs low. This service keeps your system clean and in good working order. It also helps prevent smaller problems from becoming larger, more costly problems.
With preventive maintenance, we like to partner with our clients in order to provide options best for the situation and create custom solutions that fit your needs. We understand the importance and adverse effects of having an operation down in the commercial/industrial realm and will thus work on comprehensive, systemic solutions to keep you up and running.
