    International stone specialist chills out and cuts costs - with help from 007

    Thursday 2nd April 2015

    Knaresborough-based Lapicida, established in 1984 and now recognised as the world's leading international stone specialist, has recently installed two Parker Hiross Hyperchill industrial process chillers from Thorite to provide precision cooling during stone cutting and shaping. Each of the two Hyperchill machines, both model number 007, have an air flow of 4400 m³/h and recirculate chilled water from tanks to cool the vacuum system which "sticks" stone to a bed prior to being worked on. This process previously would generate temperatures above boiling point and use a constant flow of fresh water, but the new system ensures greater accuracy and is estimated to be saving around 3000 per month in water usage costs.
