Refrigeration systems with natural gases will set the pace for many industries, improving not only energy efficiency but generating a greater commitment to the environment. The importance that these systems are acquiring is reflected in the number of activities, and training in seminars and congresses during 2017, such as those carried out by the IIAR, ASHRAE and Froztec, to name a few institutions and companies.
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.
It’s not that your equipment or refrigeration system is defective: but you will have to change it if you don’t follow the regulations of protection to the atmosphere at international level or in your country of origin. If your production depends on an efficient refrigeration system, it’s important that you prepare for the transition to refrigeration equipment based on natural or non-fluorinated refrigerants, and make sure you are not using refrigerant gases that will be banned or regulated in the coming years .
