A cheese manufacturer in France was looking for a performant cooling system for a new building with low temperature needs. The requirements included a constant and precise 2° to 4°C storage temperature in the cold rooms


Trane supplied one RTAF 191 HSE-LN screw chiller. The air-cooled RTAF is the perfect low temperature system to ensure the 2° to 4°C storage temperature needed in the cold rooms without any compromise on quality and safety.

The installalled high efficiency system features:
• Future-proof refrigerant R1234ze, an HFO with zero ODP and a below 1 GWP
• High Seasonal Efficiency with Adaptive Frequency Drive, inverter technology
• Low Noise
• Total Heat Recovery providing Free Heating with the reuse of the energy extracted from the cooling process to produce hot sanitary water
• Micro-channel condenser coils


The customer is very satisfied with the process cooling installation. From his experience, the system does provides outstanding energy efficiency that results into less energy consumed and lower electricity bills. And low noise is achieved without any loss of operating efficiency.

From warehousing to food processing plants, Trane's extended portfolio of 90kW to 1200 kW units can meet the needs of all food and drink applications down to -8°C with monopropylene and -12°C with monoethylene.
