Kellogg’s Mexicali Plant Saves 88% in Cooling Costs
Kellogg’s has reduced energy consumption at its Mexicali, Mexico, food processing plant by 88 percent. The facility regularly deals with ambient temperatures exceeding 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Powered by Coolerado’s heat mass exchange (HMX) cooling technology, Kellogg’s is experiencing an annual savings of $62,000 in cooling costs.
Compared to a traditional system that would consume as much as 60 kW during peak use, the Coolerado system at the Kellogg’s plant uses only 7.1 kW during peak power conditions. According to the company, Coolerado HMX units typically use one-tenth the energy of traditional AC units.
Coolerado’s M50 line of air conditioners do not use chemical refrigerants like CFCs that are believed to create greenhouse gases, deplete the ozone and contribute to global warming.
