Turnkey hard ice and thermal ice storage technologies
The development of underground mines to below 2,000m (6,500 feet) below the shaft collar, combined with an increasing concern with energy costs, has increased demand for turnkey hard ice and thermal ice storage technologies. Howden plate ice technology can be used with normal mine service water to product ice with an Ice Mass Friction (IMF) of up to 98%. Our oil-injected screw compressors are used with environmentally friendly ammonia refrigerant to provide ice freezing capacity. We can supply ice-making technology that can produce either "ice water" or "hard ice" during any specific 24 hour period. These options make power and demand savings possible when used with good water management systems and policies.
Every Howden product is backed by an absolute commitment to lifetime support and service that covers all spare parts, troubleshooting, scheduled maintenance and emergency response. We are dedicated to maintaining your plant at peak performance and, above all, keeping it in continuous production.
Our extensive range of air and gas handling equipment are used in the most critical positions in the generating process. Howden has therefore been listening to the needs of the people in the industry to custom design each product to precisely match the individual specification and circumstances.
One of the most valuable advantages in working with Howden is that you can discuss your requirements with engineers who have a detailed understanding of the workings of power generating plants. You invest in a continuing partnership that gives you unrivalled global expertise in air and gas handling processes.
Our lifelong aftercare service will supply original replacement parts, support you with maintenance and installation, and even train your own engineers in maintenance techniques. We keep detailed plant records almost indefinitely, and regularly supply spare parts for machinery over 50 years old.
