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%.
