Case Study

Headquartered in Central China, since 2010 the birth of company, FahrentecTM has been actively participating in the spotlight projects with the world leading companies. FahrentecTM helped designing and manufacturing the glycol system for indoor ski-school in Melbourne; provided uniquely designed energy efficient flake ice machines for Tahiti Islanders, we enjoyed these cooperation, as they are precious opportunities in which we constantly, intensively challenged ourselves, and these efforts gained the most valuable return---the satisfactory from customers! We delivered the value, and all benefited from it.

20Ton Glycol tube ice system for Melbourne indoor ski school

Thanks to the successful and trustworthy cooperation with international companies, FahrentecTM acquired this precious opportunity contributing its expertise and passion to the snow making business on global stage.

Original design of this snow making system is targeting on all times snow making application. It integrates the AggrekoTM glycol chiller, FahrentecTM tube ice evaporator to a specially designed all weather snow making system; presents the features of fast snow making and harvest, fully automatic and energy efficient.

Stage one--- ice making


Controlled by the FahrentecTM Siemens fully-auto touch screen controller, water circulates in tube evaporator while chilled brine is made by AggrekoTM 150Kw chiller and pumped into the evaporator for heat conduction. 15 minutes per cycle, Approx. 300Kg of tube ice are made.


Stage two- harvest

Once the counting down clock in touch screen is ended, the system indicates hot water pump to circulate the hot water from cooling tower to evaporator to defrost the tube ice. Within one minute process all tube ice comes out from inlet to the FAD200 auger conveyor.

Equipment FahrentecTM contributes:

  • Tube ice evaporator
  • Special designed pumps and valves
  • Fully automatic touch screen control system
  • High speed stainless steel automatic ice auger

Fahrentec Refrigeration Corporation delivers this ALL TIME SNOW MAKING SYSEM to every corner of the world, AggrekoTM’s ability of global deployment is the winning key. Instead of investing huge capital in the expensive snow making systems, managers of ski-resort now have another solution of renting the AggrekoTM chiller from its local agents in the snow season as long as they have this ALL TIME SNOW MAKING systems in hand. Except the AggrekoTM chiller, the system is compact, and easy to transport, install. The beauty of this joint product is when you order us, you order the snow, when you don’t need the snow, you don’t pay one cent.

For indirect refrigeration system, the heat of cooling objects or the space is transmitted to the refrigerant through a kind of middle media, which is called secondary refrigerant in refrigeration application. The advantages of adopting secondary refrigerant are centralizing the refrigeration system in a smaller space so that can minish the volume of refrigeration system and the refrigerant filling, moreover, secondary refrigerant has a large heat capacity, which made the cooling objects’ temperature be apt to keep constant. On the contrary, relatively complicated system and the increased temperature between cooling object and refrigerant are the negative aspects in indirect refrigeration system.

Common Secondary Refrigerant:

  1. Water. Water is a kind of ideal secondary refrigerant, which characterizes in large heat capacity, lower density, minor corrosion, non-combustible, non-poisonous and good chemistry stability Etc. it is adopted widely in above 0
