Cairo, Egypt: 17 May 2016 Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has collaborated with Egyptian firm Delta Construction and Manufacturing (DCM) to produce the highest capacity commercial chillers to be manufactured in Egypt.
Three 170-ton chillers were commissioned with enhanced capabilities to cater for the strict requirements of the client local pharmaceutical manufacturer United Pharmaceuticals. Producing a commercial chiller with the required capacity and large commercial scroll (LCS) tandem systems is a huge challenge, particularly with no local OEM having the necessary facilities or resources to manufacture a system with required capacity range.
An Egyptian pharmaceutical firm required an air conditioning solution for a 10,000 square meter space. There were some constraints and special cooling requirements which called for a unique solution. Therefore for this particular installation, DCM engineers designed and manufactured a large-scale chiller according to the clients strict specifications.
The new solutions benefit the client on three fronts: taking up less space, costing less to install and generating lower running costs. They also come with full technical support from Emerson.
Each chiller has an inlet water temperature of 52 F, outlet water temperature of 42 F and inlet air temperature of 105 F. Serviced by DCMs fan coils and air handling units, collectively they can produce a total of 530 tons of refrigeration and 160,000 CFM.
Javed Rasheed, regional sales manager- Emerson Climate Technologies MEA, explained: DCM is a partner with whom weve had a successful relationship with since 2008, and is the largest commercial air conditioning OEM in the country. It was a challenge to produce a local commercial chiller with this capacity range with large commercial scroll tandem systems, but a project like this demonstrates the value of collaboration.
Established in 1995, DCM employs more than 135 staff at its production plant in the 10th of Ramadan Industrial City. They have been involved in a number of large-scale projects during the past 24 months, and their business with Emerson doubled in 2015, compared to 2014.
Previously, companies needing a chiller of this capacity would have to import it. No local OEM can produce this capacity range, as it requires advanced manufacturing capability. However, DCM now has the ability to manufacturer units from as little as 20 tons, right through to 175 tons the only organization in Egypt able to produce chillers of this size, said Mohamed El-Borollosy, marketing director - DCM.
