INNOVATION IN POWER GENERATION
YORK Refrigeration – Frick
Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, United States
AE Polysilicon corp. commissioned yOrK Process Systems to design and
supply its new facility in Fairless Hills, Pa., with two process screw chiller
packages. The customized system utilizes carbon dioxide and ammonia as
refrigerants to cool a proprietary process fluid used to produce polysilicon, the
raw material used in 90 percent of solar-energy modules.
Successful project completion hinged on the team’s ability to separate multiple-unit components on different skids to maintain bill-of-material accuracy, meet
the project schedule with limited manpower, and navigate through unforeseen
obstacles. YORK trained its engineering and fabrication personnel on Bentley
software and produced more accurate drawings and bills of material, increased
design time, and improved procurement and visualizations.
