In recent years, we have commissioned cooling systems at petrochemical plants and refineries nationwide. Our network of depots - which spans the entire UK - allows us to respond to your call within four hours, guaranteeing cost effective solutions to all your requirements. Renowned as the country’s leading specialist hire company, no-one is better placed to supply industrial chiller or cooling units to this sector.

Our impeccable reputation as your sector’s leading provider of cooling equipment is reinforced by a plethora of references from customers within these industries. We are constantly investing in both our products and staff to ensure the high standards we aspire to are always met. With a broad range of fluid chillers, low temperature chillers, air handlers as well as ancillaries, clients can depend on us to supply the right equipment for all your cooling needs.

Before commissioning or recommending a chiller package, our exert engineers will conduct a no obligation assessment of your premises to help establish the most applicable course of action. This allows us to understand both the demands and dimensions of your application, as well as the budget constraints in place. We will also carefully consider how your requirements may develop in the future and any cooling solution we install can be adapted if necessary.

Petrochemical processes and procedures of a similar nature demand closely monitored climate control in order to assist refinery processes. Fluid chiller units are regularly deployed on site to facilitate many of the processes in the removal of excess heat, among other sources.

Refineries often install high capacity fluid chillers when existing cooling becomes inefficient or closed circuit cooling towers or chillers have broken down or are unavailable. Cooling is used on a multitude of processes within a refinery from Kero merox plants to Hydrocracking to ensure that the process of refining is optimised. As refineries utilise sea water, the existing chilling pipe work and heat exchangers can become extremely vulnerable to corrosion and loss of efficiency due to scaling. At Andrews we supply the full range of fluid chillers, heat exchangers, pump sets and temporary pipe work to ensure your refining process is uninterrupted.

If your refinery is devoid of effective cooling systems then it could seriously hinder your activities going forward. We will help you plan for upcoming operations or projects but can also provide emergency assistance if your current equipment has collapsed. Our instant service and specialised technicians ensure your productivity will be restored to its normal levels, without disturbing other aspects of your process.

With demand for cooling equipment constantly growing where chemical enterprise is concerned, it is imperative that businesses choose the right chillers for their application. Greater use has led to energy consumption increasing, which in turn causes costs to rise to unprecedented levels. This is why it’s essential to correctly calculate the capacity requirements of your plant and then select appropriate equipment accordingly.

For this reason, we encourage customers to take up the option of a free site survey which could ultimately save you time and money. We will visit your site or facility at a time convenient to you and ascertain which of our cooling systems would be most befitting of your needs. Our technicians will design a turn-key packages based solely on your individual conditions, guaranteeing efficient solutions at affordable rates.

As the UK’s largest specialist hire company, we have stock available for immediate dispatch at our nationwide fleet of depots. This enables us to quickly supply the petrochemical and refinery sectors with our units in the event of an emergency or planned maintenance - meaning you are protected against any feasible scenario.
