Gelato goes green – IWC’s water saving, cooling solution

In the quest to balance efficiency and sustainability, businesses often face significant challenges. For Gelatissimo, an authentic Italian gelateria based in Glenhazel, the sporadic cooling water requirements of their machines posed a substantial problem. Each production cycle necessitated a quick and efficient supply of cold water, which traditionally led to high water consumption and elevated operational costs.

The Challenge: High Water Costs And Waste
Gelatissimo’s production process was heavily impacted by the need for rapid cooling water. The existing system was not only costly but also wasteful, affecting the company’s bottom line and environmental footprint. This inefficiency underscored the urgent need for a solution that could provide immediate cooling while conserving water and reducing expenses.

Exploring Solutions: Chiller Systems vs Practical Alternatives

The search for a solution began with considering the installation of a chiller. However, the capital investment required and the physical size of the chiller made this option unfeasible. Gelatissimo needed a budget-friendly, space-efficient alternative that would offer a tangible return on investment without compromising on performance.
