Swire Coca-Cola

Fruitland, Idaho

Year Completed: 2020

Scope:

Swire Coca-Cola is the best of the Best 

In 2020 a new bottling line was installed.  We expanded their refrigeration system and installed a new Glycol Heat Exchanger Skid.  This new glycol system allowed them to use glycol in the carbo-coolers on the new line as well as the expanded capacity to convert their existing carbo-coolers from ammonia to glycol. 

A new High-Pressure Receiver (HPR) and Evaporative condenser (EC) were also installed. 

The design, piping, and insulation was all performed by the Louis A. Roser Company

Potato Products of Idaho

Rigby, Idaho

Year Completed: 2020

Scope: Potato Product of Idaho makes the best mashed potatoes we have ever tasted!  To support the growing demand of these delicious potatoes, the Louis A. Roser Company had the privilege to design/build a new ammonia refrigeration system to support two spiral freezers.    

This is not the first time that PPI has turned to L.A. Roser for our expertise.  This is the third refrigeration system that we have installed at this same facility.  As their business grows, they continue to turn to the Louis A. Roser Company.   Just one more example of why we have been in business since 1907.

Schreiber Foods

Logan, Utah

Year Completed: 2020

Scope:In 2019 Schrieber added a new Yogurt processing line.  We modified their existing ammonia refrigeration system to give them additional glycol cooling capacity.  This included the installation of compressors, condensers, recirculator, and plate and frame ammonia to glycol HX skid.  We also assisting in the re-assembly of cooling tunnel that was moved from a different facility. 

We started by taking a 3D scan of the existing mechanical areas.  We developed 3D models of the existing equipment and piping, and then we inserted all the new equipment, piping, and valves into the model.  This allowed us to review the layout with the great people at Schreiber’s to ensure they were happy with the piping and valve locations.  It also allowed us to fabricate much of the piping in our shop, thus reducing the overall cost of the project. 

In 2020 we made additional modifications to support a new process line that was installed.  This included hundreds of feet of new glycol piping, converting a flooded ammonia to glycol HX to Direct Injection, and the removal of the surge drum to reduce ammonia inventory.  We also cleaned the HX plates and added new ones to increase the capacity of the unit.

  • New Flooded plate and frame HX package from Evapco 
  • New glycol storage tank and pumps 
  • Installed new Ammonia compressors from Frick 
  • Retrofit of existing recirculator 
  • Added a liquid ammonia transfer pump 
  • Installed new cooling water storage tank and pump system 
  • Installed new fluid coolers 
  • Installed a new ammonia diffusion tank

Daily’s Premium Meats

Salt Lake City, Utah

Year Completed: 2020

Scope: The Louis A. Roser Company recently installed a cooling tower for the microwave units at Daily’s Premium Meats. This installation took a load off of their existing freezer system, allowing them to both save money and free up the system’s cooling capacity for other vital loads.

In addition, our exceptional team installed both an ammonia detection and ventilation system for their plant as well. This system is running well and is controlled by Alan Bradley PLC.
