MVI/MVIC Intercooler Package

The MVI Intercooler Package reduces installation time and cost compared to field fabricated units. At the heart of the package is the Matrix LLC™ (Liquid Level) Control Panel, providing total intercooler or accumulator level control. The MVI Intercooler Package is available in a complete range of vessel diameters from 16” to 144”, with or without internal pipe coils. Major components are maintained in factory inventory to enable fast on-time shipments.

Standard MVI catalogued models range in capacity from 40 to 4,749 tons of refrigeration for ammonia depending on the high stage suction temperature and are based on a 95°F liquid feed temperature.

Depending on the method chosen to pre-cool the liquid feed to the low temperature side of the the refrigeration system, the MVI can be arranged to to either flashcool or sub-cool the liquid. Flashcooling provides for the most economical equipment and operating cost. The sub-cooling method is recommended for applications where the liquid is being fed to a remote location. It is accomplished by adding a pipe coil inside the vessel. This arrangement changes the model nomenclature from MVI to MVIC.

Surge volumes for the MVI range from 5.2 to 766 cubic feet and for the MVIC range from 2.9 to 238.3 cubic feet.
