FREEZE AND THAW SYSTEM

Presented by: Nithin Varghese Ninan

Features of Modular FT100


The modular FT100 system controls freezing and thawing processes. This robust and reliable platform gives flexibility by processing upto 100L of solution in Single use Celsius Paks(Available sizes are 1L,2L,8.3L,16.6L Celsius Paks) The system is equipped with
a freeze thaw module for Celcius Paks holding a Thermal Control Unit(TCU) a control panel with process relevant sensors

How FT100 works?


The heat transfer fluid(HTF) circulates inside heat transfer plates mounted on each module. Once a freeze or thaw cycle is initiated , the plates close over the Celsius Paks ensuring good contact between the plates and the Celsius Pak surface optimizing the heat transfer. The FT100 is mounted on rockers that allow the module to rock back and forward during thawing processes. The rocking movement optimizes the mixing of the liquid and solid phases of the product, improving thawing time and product homogeneity.

FT100 Controller
The entire automatic freeze, thaw and hold operations are processed through the controller. It is linked with TCU and FT module via Profinet . The critical parameters of all processes are commanded, monitored and stored in an automatic manner with minimum operator intervention. The Human Machine Interface(HMI) is a touch screen panel PC connected to a Siemens PLC. All relevant process values are recorded with the WinCC Software: HTF Flow HTF Supply and return temperatures HTF Supply and return Pressures Product temperatures(2 or 4 sensors for each module)

Temperature Control Unit


An electronically controlled expansion valve is used in the Temperature control unit to optimize the power adjustment. The expansion valve always provisions the maximum possible cooling capacity within the permissible ambient temperature range. The TCU switches off when the upper range is reached(maximum permissible ambient temperature). Temperature sensors employed on the surface of heating coils monitors over temperature at this potential ignition source, thus ensuring that the controller regulates the heating coil temperature below the critical temperature (combustion point of the heating fluid). Expansion vessel usually maintains expansion temperature of thermal fluids in expansion vessel at almost room temperature.
