ALBERTSON’S WAREHOUSE

North Salt Lake, UT

Industry: Cold Storage
Markets: Grocery Distribution
Services: Construction, Service, Engineering, PSM, Insulation
Type of Facility: Distribution Facility
Size: 250,000 sqft

Scope: The Louis A. Roser Company has performed a variety of projects for this Albertsons/Safeway facility. The most recent projects include:

2020 – Freezer Evaporator Replacement. The goal was to reduce the temperature of the freezer for ice cream storage. Four old evaporators were removed and replaced with new, higher capacity evaporators. The valve stations were modified to improve the hot gas defrost efficiency and the new piping was re-insulated.

2019 – P&ID Validation and verification. As with most facilities, as time elapses and changes are made, the record keeping starts to be more difficult. The LA Roser team created new P&IDs and independently 2nd and triple checked them for accuracy.

2019 – Insulation repairs were made to their system. Our expert team of insulators tackled this project in a timely manner. In doing so, the vessels were checked for proper wall thickness.

2019 – An Anhydrator was installed to remove the moisture from the refrigerant of this aging system. Once the Anhydrator was installed, over 55 gallons of water was removed from the ammonia within the first three weeks.

Utah Olympic Oval

Kearns, Utah

Year Completed: 2020

Scope: Known as the fastest track in the world, LA Roser assisted with installation and continued service to this world-class ice rink.

Louis A. Roser Company prolonged the life of this world record holding facility by replacing aging shell-and-tube heat exchangers. To ensure the long-term integrity of the rink’s piping, the cooling brine was flushed and replaced with new monitoring and chemical treatment capabilities. To reduce electrical costs, a new compressor with variable frequency drive (VFD) was installed. A full flow balance of the Calcium Chloride Brine was performed.

Those entrusted with maintaining the “fastest ice on earth” rely on Louis A. Roser company to continue to service their equipment on a regular basis.

Maverick Center

Salt Lake City, Utah

Year Completed: 2019

Scope: The Engineering team at Louis A. Roser Company was asked to evaluate the equipment at Maverik center and offer suggestions to run more efficiently and prolong the life of the facility, both with and without the ice floor in place. 

 

Our design was approved, and we worked with Lewis Young Robertson and Lux Energy to remove some of the aging equipment and install: 

  • A new Ammonia Compressor with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) 
  • New Evaporative Condenser and Cooling Towers 
  • Ammonia to Brine HX for the ice floor 
  • New Brine Pumps and associated piping 
  • Ammonia to Glycol HX for arena comfort cooling 

 

The retrofit went well, it works wonderfully, and looks amazing.  Best of all, the soft ice issues are resolved, and they have reduced electrical costs.

Geneva Nitrogen

Orem, Utah

Year Completed: 2011

Scope: Geneva Nitrogen is a unique facility in that it uses ammonia refrigeration systems to chill ammonia. They can store millions of pounds of ammonia at any given time. In 2011, LA Roser provided a new shell-and-tube heat exchanger to chill a small part of their process. This particular chiller presented a challenge, in that the heat exchanger had to replace an existing one, and still remain on the skid package originally installed.

Louis A. Roser Company designed a refrigeration system to lower the pressure of rail car tankers reduce the offloading time. An all-stainless steel ammonia refrigeration system was integrated into their existing processes and reduced rail car unloading time by 50%.
