Oomiak completed a project for Mt Barker Chickens in Rockingham, Western Australia.
Oomiak was contracted by Milne Agrigroup to design, install and commission an ammonia refrigeration plant to serve a spiral freezer system as part of a new cook / chill line at the Rockingham facility.
The plant is located outside the building servicing a dual temperature operation spiral freezer/chiller.
Through the use of a pre-packaged plant skid, Oomiak was able to provide an economical and timely solution to meet the project’s tight deadline.
Fabricated in Oomiak’s Adelaide workshop, the new skid was sized to enable transport by road across to Perth.
The critically charged ammonia refrigeration plant consists of a screw compressor, evaporative condenser with a refrigeration pump recirculating liquid ammonia through the spiral freezer evaporator coils.
The system was designed to run efficiently at both -35oC and -5oC operational temperatures and allows for simple switch ability between the two modes.
