Customer:

Enterprise Products (Houston, Texas)

Type of Business:

Propane Transfer

The Problem:

This company owns and operates boat loading facilities in Houston, TX for oil, natural gas and propane. Historically, propane had been loaded onto tankers during the winter to minimize heat expansion and facilitate faster transfer from land to ships. World demand has grown and changed; now ships must be loaded in the summer months too. But because the dry cooling tower could not keep the propane cool enough during the hot summer days, the transfer rates would stop or be so slow that tankers would start lining up in the harbor.

The Solution:

Hydrobreeze Misting Systems designed its largest state of the art 1400-Nozzle Commercial Pre-Cooling Misting System which was installed under the dry cooling tower in order to lower temperatures. The cooling capacity was improved by approximately 30%. So that even on the hottest days, the propane transfer rates were as good as the middle of winter. System was so efficient that entire project was paid-off within 1 Day! Talking about return on investment!

Ashcroft Bakery (Stafford, Texas)

Type of Business:

Commercial Bakery

The Problem:

This commercial bakery mass produces a wide assortment of fresh breads, rolls, buns, muffins, cookies, cakes, pastries, pies and other specialty items on daily basis. Bakery is one of the largest supplier for restaurants and grocery stores in greater Houston area and operates 7 days a week. Entire indoor facility has no air conditioning system and their 150ft long oven room consists rows of walk-in ovens operating 12-15 hours a day. Average indoor temperatures of 100-105 degrees was normal. Heat from these ovens made it almost impossible for the employees to work in and around this oven room and be productive at the same time. In addition, extra dry heat was ruining baked products.

The Solution:

Hydrobreeze Misting Systems designed and professionally installed a network of strategically placed mist lines with multiple zones. System was powered by industry leading 1500psi mist pump with ultra fine stainless steel mist nozzles and anti-drip feature. Because of its indoor application, entire misting system was professionally calibrated to achieve flash evaporation ensuring that the floor does not get slippery/wet and equipment did not collect any moisture. Result was up to 20% reduction in temperature. A comfortable environment was created and workers have never been happier. In addition, same misting system was configured to increase the humidity in the storage room to keep the products “moist.”

PV Rentals (Houston, Texas)

Type of Business:

Vehicle Rental and Leasing

The Problem:

This company owns and operates several rental location around Houston area. Their fleet consists of more than thirty-five different vehicle types encompassing a wide range of trucks, vans and passenger vehicles. Company also operates a 10,000sqft service center where it performs maintenance on its vehicles. Just like many other auto repair facilities, this building did not have central air conditioning. Working conditions became miserable during hot summer months. Existing floor fans were no help as they simply moved hot air around.

The Solution:

Engineers at Hydrobreeze Misting Systems designed a mist system that utilized positive ventilation technique to cool the hot air and displace it every 3-5 minutes. This allowed fresh air in to the building and eliminated “hot spots.” Once installed, combination of high velocity oscillating mist fans and stainless steel misting line drastically reduced the overall temperature and created a pleasant working environment for the employees.

Jewell Concrete Products (Richmond, Texas)

Type of Business:

Concrete Manufacturing Plant

The Problem:

Jewell manufacturing facility produces Architectural Masonry and Concrete aggregate products that are used in thousands of construction projects throughout United States and Canada. Company’s Richmond, TX plant produces pavers, concrete block, stone and bricks. Plant’s outdoor tumbler area and indoor conveyer belt areas became extremely hot during summer months. In addition, manufacturing process produced heavy dust particles throughout the facility.

This high performance system not only helped reduce the temperatures, it also suppressed dust particles.

Igloo Products Corp. (Katy, Texas)

Type of Business:

Personal Coolers

The Problem:

Igloo is one of the largest recognized brand in USA with its ever expanding line of coolers. At its world headquarters in Katy, TX, company’s blow molding plant operates 24/7 to meet high demand for coolers. Heat generated from the blow mounding machines was resulting in 10 to 20 degrees higher temperature difference on any given day and time. Cost of installing central air conditioning system for building that is over 100,000sq feet was outrageous and impractical at the same time.

The Solution:

Facility already had 30” wall mount fans installed in various areas of the plant. Hydrobreeze Misting Systems came up with a plan to utilize those existing fans and retro fitting them with a high pressure misting system at a fraction of the cost. Instantly cooler and more comfortable working space was created to reduce heat stress and heat related injuries among workers. Igloo is currently in talks to install similar misting system for its adjacent shipping and receiving facility.

Type of Business:

Spanish Super Market

The Problem:

Bravo Ranch Supermarket’s newest Houston branch provides healthy choices in meat, produce and groceries at family friendly prices. Store’s produce section carry wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. In order to keep them fresh, store employees had to manually spray water on the products at timely intervals.

Hydrobreeze technicians made sure that mist produced would evenly cover the all the produce and prevent customers and floor from getting wet. NSF approved filtration system was used to filter the water. In addition, entire mist system utilized non rusting parts to prevent any health hazards. This misting system was completely automatic and allowed produce manger to increase overall department productivity while offering the most delicious and juicy fruits and vegetables to everyday customers.
