KTI cold air systems have been developed to Efficiency of existing systems for concrete cooling can be significantly increased. While concrete cooling with cullet or plate ice reaches its limits when the cement-water ratio is reached, cold air can be used to lower the concrete temperature even further.
- The prevention or reduction of ice through the use of cold air saves costs for electricity and water, as the technology implemented in a cold air system enables more efficient operation.
- In addition, the cold air system must Be in operation only during concrete production, while an ice plant is usually in continuous operation for 24 hours to fill the ice store even during the downtimes of the concrete batching plant.
- Cold air systems from KTI are a sensible economic upgrade of existing concrete cooling systems instead of expansion with an ice plant or a chilled water plant.
- The use of cold air to lower the temperature of the aggregates before they are fed into the concrete mixer is the most energy-efficient way to cool concrete economically. This can improve overall efficiency by up to 30%.
