Rebound Technologies, an advanced refrigeration equipment supplier, has commissioned the first full-scale commercial IcePoint system, now operational at Lineage Logistics’ 115,000-square-foot cold storage and blast freezing facility in Greeley, Colorado.
IcePoint uses a new patented thermodynamic cycle called a freeze point suppression (FPS) cycle which allows cold chain customers with low temperature refrigeration needs to freeze more product, achieve higher efficiency and enhance moisture management throughout their entire facility, all leading to optimized operations.
The system will provide up to 80 tons of cooling while simultaneously managing moisture levels and helping avoid peak energy rates.
A globally patented technology,IcePoint provides agile freezing that attacks temperature fluctuations which leads to inefficiencies and reduced throughput. Its dehumidification impact greatly reduces defrost cycles resulting in faster freezing times, optimized equipment operations and labor savings. This technology offers next generation flexibility and impact in an otherwise fixed-capacity, legacy equipment world with excellent return on investment.
"IcePoint represents a huge leap for industrial cooling technology,” said Alexander Woolf, vice president of Research and Development at Lineage Logistics. “The go-live of the first industrial-scale IcePoint unit represents a key milestone in the six-year collaboration between Lineage and Rebound."
Rebound and Lineage partnered on a pilot project in 2018, at a strawberry processing facility in California, where the agile freezing benefit was shown to increase throughput. The unit operating at the Greeley facility is 10-times larger than the initial pilot, was installed with almost no interruption to the facility and does not require engine room integration or critical ammonia infrastructure tie-in.
“This installation is an exciting step for Rebound and Lineage,” said CEO of Rebound Technologies, John Fox. “Our partnership with Lineage represents the first commercialization of FPS technology and offers the next step in the evolution of improved cold chain operations.”
