Refrigeration and Chillers

Rohde is the leading provider of process cooling and ice bank applications. They are known for their superior energy efficiency, reliability and outstanding customer support.  That’s why so many companies choose Rohde to design, build, install and maintain ultra-efficient refrigeration systems.

Field-proven control technology means efficient and reliable operation with the ability to connect to existing control systems and utilize of off peak energy rates. And, Rohde controls and compressors operate at higher saturated suction temperatures and lower saturated discharge temperatures than competitive systems.

Steamfitting and welding


  • Environmentally friendly refrigerants
  • Don’t require a Process Safety Management program
  • Cooling capabilities of large systems without using glycol solution tanks
  • Compact unit design
  • VFD control for compressors, glycol pumps, and condenser fans

Sheet Metal

Rohde is an industry-leader in sheet metal technology and innovation.  Within its 51,000 sq. ft. facility the sheet metal department offers standard and custom metal fabrication.  Through technology and automation, it produces ductwork at a substantially reduced rate over other fabricators. Department capabilities include:

  • A spiral duct machine capable of producing up to 48 inch diameter 18 gauge duct
  • A five foot coil line, capable of producing full wrap TDC and slip and drive ductwork
  • A plasma cutting table for optimal production of CAD-designed fittings
  • Round fittings, couplings and starting collars
  • All rectangular fittings including duct accessories (lined or unlined)
  • Fiberglass duct board duct and fittings up to 8 foot lengths
  • Duct assemblies
  • Welded black iron and polished stainless steel duct
  • Coordination drawings
  • Tagged and labeled duct systems 


Rohde skilled steamfitters install piping systems to complement its design build services in the food processing, industrial manufacturing and commercial markets. Rohde is one of just a few mechanical contractors in the State of Wisconsin certified to perform for ASME code welding on high pressure and stainless steel piping.  Steamfitting services include steam, hot water, chilled water, fuel, hydraulics, oil, glycol, refrigeration and process piping.

Rohde-engineered 3D piping models allow for prefabrication of piping assemblies which reduces job site installation time and project cost. 

The department fabricates and installs piping using stainless steel, carbon steel, nickel and aluminum alloys, titanium, chrome-moly, copper and plastics.
