Isofred expands COPIMA

Isofred expands COPIMA's vegetable preservation facilities

The company wanted to continue its ecological and efficient approach to the cooling of its new rooms by selecting the refrigerant R-290 and food glycol

ISOFRED offers services for the study, construction and maintenance of industrial refrigeration installations and controlled and modified atmospheres. To this end, Isofred provides its human resources, experience, technology and innovation to the maximum and uses materials from the leading brands on the market. All of this provides its clients with the best results in terms of both professionalism and quality in their projects.

On this occasion, it has expanded the facilities of COPIMA, a centre dedicated to food distribution logistics and located in the Aragonese Pyrenees.

In 2017, it was commissioned using ammonia and food glycol. In this new phase, the capacity of the facilities is increased with the addition of two new spaces dedicated to the Picking and preservation of vegetables, with a power of 100 kWF working at -8 °C.

The property wanted to continue its ecological and efficient approach to the cooling of its new rooms, by selecting the refrigerant R-290 and food glycol, which flows through a network of pipes made of Georg Fisher's innovative technology, polyethylene material pre-insulated with polyurethane, a combination that guarantees proper insulation and low weight. In addition to these features, an optimum thermofusion jointing system, suitable for this type of material, minimises the risk of refrigerant leakage.
