Custom Refrigeration System Design & Installation

We fully understand that a standard refrigeration system may not suit the needs of every facility. For customers with highly specific requirements and restriction, we offer custom design, build, and installation services for the following types of central built-up refrigeration systems:

  • Custom Skid Packages
  • Fab Shops to Build
    • Compressor Rooms
    • Vessel Packages
    • Pipe Fabrication
    • Steel Fabrication
    • Defrost Valve Stations
  • High-efficiency systems that reduce electrical costs and maintenance requirements, accommodates future expansions and energy saving grant programs, and abide by practices to meet the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) current standards.
  • Refrigeration System Optimization and Retrofitting

In addition to design, construction, and installation, our team also provide refrigeration training—in-class, hands on, or online—to customer system technicians and maintenance managers to teach them the best practices regarding system maintenance.


Refrigeration System Maintenance and Repair

Refrigeration systems require regular maintenance and servicing to ensure they remain in proper working order for the duration of their expected service life. Our preventive maintenance and repair programs are custom-tailored to fit the specific needs of each facility and comply with International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) 6-xxxx standards.

When examining refrigeration units, our technicians are trained to look for improvement and optimization opportunities. These suggestions focus on increasing the performance of the system.

In addition to performing preventative maintenance, we provide remote troubleshooting for mechanical issues. If requested, we present plant managers with a list of recommended parts to stock to facilitate future maintenance and repair operations.
