Tug Building in Durban
Durban, 24 June 2015
I recently discovered this article on the internet originally written in 2008.  In 2008 the Bitzer Open Drive Compressors as well as the Marine Condensers used for the air-conditioning plants on the Tugs were supplied by Afcon Industrial Equipment to the contractor.  This was seven years ago and I am pleased to report that the shipbuilding industry is still thriving in Durban and has been awarded the contract for a further eight tugs to be built.  At Afcon we pride ourselves on keeping all details of orders supplied.  We have again supplied the Compressors and Condensers and the Racks are currently being manufactured off site by our customer for fitting onto the Tugs when ready.

Refrigeration and Airconditioning #ElectricitySavings
#Hysave Lpa Pumps offer extensive savings in the costs of electricity.
A new customer recently had this to say...

"we are installing the last one that we bought in Ghana, there are 4 on test trials, after the winter costs analysis we will more than likely install a lot more again. The two that were on trial on this site showed a 25% decrease in running costs over the two packs that did not have them."

#Cubicool have already installed over a hundred #Hysave pumps in their Multiplex's in recent years and have constantly proved they really achieve what is claimed #PowerSavings.
Hysave pumps also compliment electronic expansion valve installations by ensuring quality liquid refrigerant reaches the expansion valve.

One of Afcon’s specialities is thermal storage, and no-one offers more technical experience than Dave Nichols.  While working on a project lately he mused on the properties of ice and it is worth noting - the amount of energy that needs to  be transferred to 1kg of ice in order to melt it is much higher than the energy needed to change the temperature of 1kg of water.

The #LPA pump is a semi-hermetically sealed unit. The impeller floats in a revolving magnetic field and is the only moving part.
The magnetic flux is supplied by an external motor with a magnetic coupling device. Because the motor is external to the system, a burnout cannot contaminate the system.
The external placement of the motor eliminates any additional heat back into the system.

In the unlikely event of motor failure, the motor can be replaced without the need to shut the system off or remove the refrigerant.
No need for variable drive or frequency control as the characteristics of all LPA pump ‘s are self unloading which means less power consumed and less cost.
Mechanical life exceeds 20 years of reliable and stable operation. - http://www.afcon.co.za/hy-save
