The Road Show, organized by one of the leading providers of cooling and heating solutions in the UK, Star Refrigeration, seems to have kept its promises: This CPD certified event, held on 24-26 September in Glasgow, Leeds and Reading, has brought users of industrial refrigeration, cooling and heating up to date on the latest technology trends and developments in environmental legislation and regulation.

The conference explored methods for improving system efficiency and reliability in various applications with case studies of completed projects on:

  • District heating and cooling (Nestle Halifax)
  • Food and dairy process cooling (Apetito, Yearsley Group)
  • Brewing & distilling (Thwaites Brewery, Guinness Brewery)
  • Building Services (Strathclyde University, BSkyB Sky Studios)
  • IT cooling (RBS Data Centre)
  • Leisure and ice (Solihull Ice Rink)
  • Temperature and controlled distribution (Tesco Livingston)
  • Total solutions (Chan Brothers)

Star's senior management team members shared their knowledge and expertise through a series of presentations covering the following issues:

  • Energy efficiency, total life cycle, free cooling (Speaker: Rob Lamb)
  • R22 phase out, legislation, natural refrigerants, H&S (Speaker: David Blackhurst)
  • Maintenance, reduction of operation costs and energy consumption through site monitoring (Speaker: Andy Smith)
  • Heat Recovery, free heating, renewable heat incentive, carbon reduction commitment (Speaker: Dave Pearson)

Personnel from the company's different branches attended the event to provide an expert view to those seeking practical guidance on specific issues and to make sure attendees receive in-depth advice on the challenges they face in their business today.
