Trane Rental equipment is designed and built from the ground up to be reliable and operate within tight specified tolerances. The critical processes involved in manufacturing demand equipment that’s highly durable and stable with highly accurate temperature control. Trane Rental’s units deliver accurate leaving water temperature, operate trouble-free for years and have an interesting op-ex cost.
Process cooling can involve temperatures as low as -40°C and as high as +25°C. Trane Rental units can deliver the required cooling with capacity ranging from 5 kW to 3700 kW in a single unit. Special equipment from Trane Rental can even provide deep cooling of -40°C for the most demanding applications.
The cost of unplanned downtime in manufacturing can be devastating. If a cooling unit is out of action for a prolonged period, this can result in hefty costs in terms of lost revenues or damaged product. An unplanned interruption in production can also have a big impact on end users.
In the north-east of the UK, a company producing patient-specific doses of radiopharmaceuticals, needed an urgent cooling solution after their permanent chiller broke down. The company supplies products for around 200-300 patients a day and doses need to reach patients as swiftly as possible. Trane Rental UK was able to supply an emergency chiller to ensure production continued without interruption.
Rental equipment are a key resource when a manufacturer is running trials or developing new products. Trane Rental looks on heating and cooling as services rather than products and collaborates closely with manufacturers to understand their exact requirements, determine their priorities, and help devise the best solutions.
Sometimes this results in a change of specifications, or other modifications to reach the desired result. Trane Rental offers in-house expertise with Equipment and Service Engineers, Energy and Application Engineers enabling us to truly partner with our customers in designing solutions.
In the Netherlands, a company manufacturing high-quality synthetic pallets was trialling the use of two large industrial robots in a new injection moulding manufacturing process. The process reaches very high temperatures and the moulds needed cooling from around 32°C. A year-long trial is taking place to test the system under different climate and temperature conditions – including lower temperatures and increased capacity.
