A national leader in packaged ice with 50 state-of-the-art manufacturing plants, producing over 7,000 tons of ice per day, added another facility to its impressive manufacturing and distribution chain. As they have at 7 other locations in the past, this ice manufacturer reached out to Summit Refrigeration Group to perform the ammonia piping, insulation, pipe painting and start-up of their latest facility in South Elgin, IL. The project included the ammonia refrigeration piping of compressors, condensers, high pressure receiver, desuperheater and recirculator equipment hooked up to an 18 cell Vogt Tube Ice/Turbo ice plant. This was the largest ice plant Summit has installed for this manufacturer. It included (2) compressors and (2) condensers, thus larger pipe was needed to interconnect the components, versus previous projects.
