To successfully reduce costs in the implementation of a CO2 system, either with the intention of replacing an HFC system or for new installations, it’s essential to start the project from a global approach before starting with the technical part and the specific conditions of the project.

How to achieve efficiency without boosting the budget? This is a problem faced by owners and users of industrial refrigeration systems, as well as installers and designers.

The design of a transcritical CO2 system is a challenge even for a refrigeration expert. The correct implementation and quality of the equipment depends not only on the efficiency, but also on the safety and profitability of the production plant. When evaluating the feasibility of this system in a refrigeration project, it’s convenient to consider these 4 points.

Although the use of CO2 as refrigerant gas in industrial refrigeration systems is very old, lately we have witnessed an increase in its implementation due to current legislation to stop climate change. This has generated a large margin of opportunity in which the care of the environment goes hand in hand with the energy efficiency of companies, thanks to the use of natural refrigerants in the industry.

Trying to maintain the ideal temperature for your industrial processes will be very difficult, if not impossible, if you don’t consider adequate control of relative humidity. This relation is this simple: the amount of heat generated in an environment will be considerably affected by the amount of water present in the air.

Controlling the temperature and relative humidity is the most important factor to maintain the quality of the products within the cold chain in food, specifically, in its supply chain, but how much care is put in it to at the time of designing a cooling system?

We have previously raised the difference between these systems because of the better heat transfer properties of water compared to air-cooled chillers. In this entry, we’ll deepen into some technical aspects around the cost proposal and choice of an air-cooled chiller or a water-cooled chiller.

Choosing and installing a refrigeration equipment can be a headache if you don’t have enough information about its features and applications. Having the right equipment will ensure not only greater energy efficiency, but the ability to increase production in the long term.

Sustainability efforts at national and international levels are currently focused on finding substitutes that comply with environmental regulations; ergo, substances that wouldn’t damage the ozone layer and that their global warming potential is zero or very low.

Year after year, the cost of electricity increases in all Latin American countries, and when the accounts of the power reach the producers and small entrepreneurs, inevitably it points to something to blame: refrigeration systems.

For some years, natural refrigerants have been the medium used in large industrial refrigeration systems within the food and beverage industry for both production and storage. Due to growing concerns about the harmful effects that refrigerants can exert on the environment, natural refrigerants have undergone a new rebirth, especially the NH3 and CO2 used for industrial purposes with low temperatures.
