Refrigeration / Distribution Centers

Berlin Trade Fair

The traditional “International Congress Center ICC” at the radio tower was a landmark of old West Berlin. It is not without reason that Berliners call their ICC the “spaceship”. Built during the cold war for a total of 500 million euros in today’s currency, they wanted to make a statement withthe building on island-like West Berlin.

In the past, the catering team had to work with ice water basins prior to sending the food down seven floors downstairs. Today, food is delivered between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and transported on two freight elevators to the fourth floor of the industrial fair building number seven. Different cold-storage rooms for fish, meat, vegetables and dairy products are positioned as interim storage around the cooking islands. The refrigeration technology was planned and installed by the Berlin contractor Kleinschmidt Gewerbekühlung. “ In total, there are thirteen cold-storage rooms with areas between 8 and 42 square meters. Three blast-freezing units are integrated in a central cold-storage room. The remainder are for central warehousing. The operating temperature is between -18 degrees and +4 degrees. Kleinschmidt has installed a total of 21 energy-efficient Küba compact DFBE 072D. The space-saving ceiling air coolers ensure a high degree of cooling reliability – even and especially in cold-storage rooms that must be frequently entered.

“We always walk in and out,” says Flechtner, who especially highlighted the low noise level of the ceiling air coolers: “The noise emission is close to zero.” R134a is used as refrigerant. The casing of the evaporator is powdercoated; drip-tray and side covers are detachable and therefore easy to clean. In addition, the air cooler is equipped with electric defrosting and is continuously monitored with a wireless networksupported temperature control. “We are immediately notified by the system if there are any temperature changes. This guarantees the necessary storage security in the cold storage rooms,” says Flechtner. Kleinschmidt Gewerbekühlung has been successfully active in the market for 40 years and has supported the Berlin Trade Fair for ten years. “In the course of the last five years, we have modified the old Küba evaporators, which had been working trouble-free for 25 years in the diverse cold-storage rooms on the exhibition grounds, with the refrigerant changeover from R 22 to R 404. We carried out the change without difficulty, and that speaks for the quality of Kelvion components,” says Kleinschmidt, whose company also furnished refrigeration equipment to the O2 World in Berlin.
