Refrigeration for the food industry

EQUANS France will help you

EQUANS designs, installs, implements and maintains custom refrigeration systems for the food industry and associated warehouses.

With the Axima Réfrigération France offer, we guarantee the optimization of your processes and the securing of the cold chain while respecting the regulations in force and limiting your operating costs.

Securing the cold chain in the food industry

Reconcile your challenges of securing the cold chain and energy and environmental performance with our offer; We privilege the respect of the quality of food products by optimizing the choice of refrigerating equipment and by proposing you a traceability via GTC (temperature, hygrometry, alarm...).


Air quality control

EQUANS adapts to your food process thanks to the Axima Réfrigération France offer. We offer hygienic air handling units with absolute filtration, temperature and hygrometry control, air flow regulation, air diffusion by textile sheath, air management during washing and disinfection phases...


We have a long history with the Axima Réfrigération France offer, for more than 30 years. We had a simple and complicated challenge: our electricity subscription should not increase. Since 2008, we have saved about 15% on our gas consumption and a little over 10% on our electricity consumption.
Technical Manager Abera Saint-Brice-en-Coglès (35)

Your energy and water savings

EQUANS implements solutions adapted to the food processing industry to reduce the total installed cost, promote energy efficiency and thus optimize the return on investment :

Energy audit, reduction of electrical power, speed variation, heat recovery, natural refrigerants, adiabatic condensation to reduce water consumption.


CPE: Energy Performance Contract

Our EPC solution for the food industry is a turnkey offer to reduce energy costs and carbon impact. It integrates energy and environmental performance actions as well as a long-term energy consumption commitment to guarantee the payback period of the investments.

An EPC consists of three phases: works, maintenance and energy monitoring.

Areas of application: work on cold and/or heat production, heat recovery...

Interventions that respect the farm

Don't interrupt your business! Our specialized teams design a cold equipment deployment strategy that takes your constraints into account. For your extension or remodeling projects, we carry out studies, manufacture sub-assemblies, and carry out worksites while preserving your existing equipment;

We completely overhauled our installation which was using heterogeneous refrigerant gases. We opted for a CO2 solution, a natural fluid, to comply with the F-gas regulation. We now have a 35% reduction in energy consumption and a reduction in noise on the site. The return on investment of our installation should be around 3 years.
