TURBO doesnot engineer or design fluidchilling systems, icesystems, ice plants, orprocessing lines. TURBOcan provide assistance inlocating qualifiedcompanies familiar with theinstallation and operation ofTURBO chillers. Contactthe factory at the address ortelephone numbers listed atthe end of this section.will help avoid injury topersonnel and/or damage tothe equipment. Both arevaluable assets to youroperation. Take the time toprotect them.Read the manual contentsbefore you start yourinstallation or operation.This will save time byensuring that all necessarymaterials and tools areavailable when theequipment arrives.HistoryInformation on safety,installation, operation,maintenance and troubleshooting is contained in thismanual. If you havequestions concerning any ofthese phases, contactTURBO or one of itsdistributors to ensure thatyou fully understand theinstructions and guidelines.You must read all of theinformation carefully andmake sure that all personnelinvolved in the installationhave also read andunderstood the informationand safety instructions. ThisIntroductionTURBO has beenproducing a line of fluidchillers since 1984equipment as well asicemakers and icegenerators for the iceindustry since 1960. Thechillers described in thismanual are part of a familyof products designedspecifically for theindustrial market for avariety of cooling needs.Fluid Heat ExchangersHTD and HF series heatexchangers are designed toinstantaneously chill fluidsfalling over verticalstainless steel plates in athin falling film. Because ofmethod of chilling theliquid heat exchangers areoften referred to as fallingfilm chillers.HTD SeriesHTD stands for HighTemperature Difference.Fluids are chilled or heatedover large temperaturedifferences, ranging from5 F to 60 F in a single passusing R-22, ammonia orglycol as the refrigerantinside the plate. Systems areavailable in directexpansion (DX), floodedand recirculated models.Flow rates are availableover a wide range but aretypical considered relativelylow. Higher flow rates canbe obtained with HFchillers.HF ChillersHF stands for High Flow.Fluids are chilled overnarrow temperaturedifferences, ranging from1 F to 2 F. The plate’s longnarrow geometry enableshigh fluid flow over the2/01 Turbo Refrigerating 1-1

Ammonia, R-22 andglycol are all available foruse in direct expansion,flooded and recirculatedsystems.ApplicationsHTD/HF chillers aresuitable for a variety ofapplications including: Food Beverage Chemical ManufacturingModelsA number of standard andspecial chiller plates areavailable in a variety ofconfigurations to meetmany applications. Standardplate sizes include: 48” x 60” 72’ x 60” 96” x 60” 144” x 24”Refrigerants/RefrigerantFeedChillers are available in R22, ammonia, and glycolwith direct expansion (DX),flooded, and recirculatedrefrigerant feed. Chillerscan be furnished with theirown high side andcondensing unit orconnected to existingrefrigeration systems.Associated EquipmentIcemakers/Ice GeneratorsTURBO C-LineIcemakersPackaged ice applicationsrequire a dry sub-cooled ice1-2 Turbo Refrigerating 2/01and uniform fragmentednuggets. TURBO hasproduced the C-lineicemaker since 1964. Thisproduct line uses a waterdefrost to produce ice incapacities ranging from 1ton per dry to 200 tons perday in CAR and CAR-LR(ammonia) and CF (R-22)models.TURBO TIG/TIGARIce GeneratorsIn industrial applicationswhere ice is being used forprocessing or for top icing,TURBO produces a seriesof wet ice generators calledthe TIG (R-22) and TIGAR(NH3) series. These hot gasdefrost icemakers are builtwith the same high qualitystandards and engineeringas the TURBO icemakersof the sixties. The onlydifference is that theicemaking process producesslightly wetter ices due tothe hot gas defrost, and thestandard system used toproduce dry, uniform icenuggets is eliminated. As aresult, a random shapedpiece of fragmented ice isproduced at a lower cost perton.In applications wheretotally dry, uniform ice isnot required; theTIG/TIGAR series offers alow cost alternative.Typical Applications Produce (broccoli,carrots, etc.) – top icing inthe field (trailer mountedunits) or in the processingarea Concrete icing Ingredient icing(bakeries) Fish icing Poultry icing Chemical and dyeprocesses Emergency coolingloads Ice slurries Catering trucks Salad bars or display ice Food processingIce Storage SystemsTURBO rakes and storagebins were introduced in1967. There are three basicsizes in the hydraulicversion as well as twolarger versions known asautomatic ice rakes(described in this manual).The smaller hydraulicmodels range in capacityfrom 20 to 87 tons while thelarger automatic ice rakesrange from 100 to 300 tonsof ice storage.TURBO rakes have beenused in USDA inspectedinstallations.USDA DesignAll TURBO ice storagesystems are designed tomeet USDA guidelines andmeet rugged industrialstandards which make themthe most reliable in theindustry. Each system isdesigned to make theloading and unloading ofthe ice storage system asIntroduction

Read Safety Section before installing or using equipmentsafe and simple as possible.Regardless of size, all of theice storage systems operatein basically the same simpleyet reliable manner.The entire load and unloadsequence is automatic anddoes not require theoperator to be in contactwith the ice or any movingparts in the ice storagesystem.The continuous presence ofan operator is not requiredalthough it is recommended.At the end of the day, thebin is empty (on a designday). The bin refillsovernight and is full whenpersonnel return to work.NOTE: All controls areadjustable to allow theload or unload rate tomatch the customer’sproduction and/ordelivery requirements.Rake VariationsCB and Automatic rakes areavailable in a number ofstandard sizes toaccommodate bulk storagecapacities ranging from 20tons to 400 tons. Models areavailable in standard 10’,12’-6”, 15’ and 20’ widths;20’ to 55’ length; heightsfrom 9’ to 25’ making itpossible to produce avariety of standardcapacities.IntroductionOptional Rake FeaturesAlthough TURBO designsand builds the ice storagesystem to be as flexible aspossible, the standardsystem may not meet aparticular application.TURBO can design astorage system to meetalmost any need.TURBO Block PressTURBO offers anotherfeature to make optimumprofits from your iceproduction. Instead ofthrowing away the snowproduced by the breakerbar, ice sizer, screwconveyors, or otherhandling devices, install aTURBO block press. Thisblock press converts thesnow into ten or fifty-fivepound blocks of ice.Introduced in 1977, theblock press is a completelyautomatic, hydraulicpowered unit capable ofproducing from 120 to anexcess of 400 ten poundblocks per hour.The block press is availablewith a block baggerattachment, which means: Eliminates handlinguntil the block is in the bag A better product Higher profitsRugged industrialconstruction and stainlesssteel or UHMW in all areasof ice contact make theTURBO block press themost reliable on the market.Special ApplicationsTURBO is in the businessof supplying equipment tomeet the needs of thecustomer.
