Waitrose Chilled Water Conversion
RequirementsConvert existing refrigerated coldrooms, display cabinets, and counters to chilled water cooling
ObjectiveReduce the amount of refrigerant on site
Waitrose have an on-going programme of projects that include action to reduce the volumes of refrigerant used at their store locations. Successful in competitive tender, Horsfield were awarded the contract to convert the Stamford store from refrigerant to chilled water to provide the cold-room, counter, and display unit cooling.
Following the removal of the refrigerant based system, chilled water now satisfies the cooling demand. The chilled water is delivered to the store via carbon steel & Victaulic pipework.
The plant delivering the chilled water to the store is now refrigerant free.
Discrete pipework within the store ensures that chilled food display cabinets are free to present produce in an uncluttered environment.
