Electronic E-Star® HiPerForm®

E-Star® Refrigeration Units -

Manufactured in house by Paul Mueller Company to ensure exacting standards for milk cooling applications. E-Star refrigeration units are specifically designed to handle the large temperature changes required to cool milk. They are manufactured with a true refrigeration compressor rather than an air conditioning compressor that has been adapted for dairy use.

A variety of upgraded features including a Copeland┬« scroll compressor, a variable-speed fan, rifled condenser tubing, and a sub-cooling coil makes Mueller refrigeration units the most energy-efficient and cost effective refrigeration system available for the dairy industry.

Mueller E-Star units are designed for easy service. Electrical controls and valves are located for easy access. There's even an oil sight glass and fill port that allow you to change refrigerant oil to meet future HFC requirements.

Mueller refrigeration units outperform all other milk-cooling units in terms of reliability, efficiency, and value. It's what you'd expect from The Milk Cooling Systems SpecialistsTM.

Electronic E-Star OH HiPerForm®

The proprietary technology of the E-Star HiPerForm refrigeration system has historically made it the most energy-efficient milk cooling system in the world. As technology has developed so has the HiPerForm. The mechanical subcooling valve has been replaced with an electronic subcooling valve and control. The electronic control processes data to the tenth of a second making the proper adjustments to the electronic valve. These advancements result in nearly no install set up and provide the highest energy efficiency with faster milk temperature pull down times.

HiPerForm Concept

The HiPerForm process maximizes efficiency by utilizing the entire evaporator surface for cooling and eliminating the inefficient superheated vapor refrigerant found in conventional refrigeration systems. Additionally, the HiPerForm refrigeration system enables the compressor to operate at significantly cooler temperatures for longer compressor life, less maintenance, less energy consumption, and incomparable refrigeration efficiency. The HiPerForm is the most cost-effective way to cool milk with a scroll refrigeration unit. The Mueller E-Star HiPerForm outperforms all other milk cooling units in terms of reliability, efficiency, and value.

Features and Benefits

  • Most Energy Efficient System in the World - Proprietary electronic subcooling valve and control completely flood the milk cooler evaporator for maximum operating efficiency.

  • Copeland┬« Scroll Compressor Design - A refrigeration compressor designed to handle the large temperature changes required to cool milk. Scroll technology is more energy efficient and has less moving parts than reciprocating compressors.

  • Maximum Evaporator Efficiency - Condenser subcooling coil ensures subcooled liquid refrigerant, ensuring maximum evaporator efficiency.

  • Enhanced Condenser Heat Transfer Surface - Enlarged tube-and-fin condenser with rifled tubing results in greater refrigeration capacity and efficiency.

  • Suction Line Accumulator Heat Exchanger - Increases system efficiency and protects compressor during low load conditions.

  • Longer Compressor Life - Screw terminals versus push-on terminals, which provide positive electrical connections and reduces compressor failure.

  • Single, Variable-Speed Fan with High-Efficiency Motor - Maintains an even air flow to increase capacity and efficiency of the compressor.

  • Greater Serviceability - Electrical compartment located in the upper front portion of the unit permits easy service access.

  • Alternate Refrigerants - HiPerForm is available for use with the environmentally friendly HFC-507.

  • Oil Sight Glass and Fill Port - Allows simple inspection of the compressor oil level and provides an easy method to add or change oil for future HFC refrigerant requirements.

  • Rust-Resistant Brass High- and Low-Side Valves - Located in front of the unit for easy service access without removing the cover.

  • Galvanized Three-Piece Cover - Heavy-duty metal enclosure protects the unit from the environment while providing safe operation. The three-piece construction provides easy service access.

  • Quality Assured - Meets worldwide standards such as CSA and CE.
