SANYO adds CO2 Cassette System for Bottle Coolers

By team, Dec 14, 2009, 16:01 2 minute reading

Having already proved its reliability and efficiency at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, SANYO is now adding the CO2 cassette unit to be used for beverage coolers to the database. SANYO’s original two stage CO2 compressor ensures additional quality to the system.

Co-developed by The Coca-Cola Company, the CO2 cassette system was already in wide use during the Olympics in Beijing in 2008 where 5000 units cooled Coca-Coca bottles. 10,000 of the maintenance-friendly and efficient cooling units have already been supplied to the European market.

To ensure a perfect fit for the natural refrigerant the system uses SANYO’s CO2 rotary 2-stage compressor technology that disperses the increased pressure, making a manageable average torque possible, while simultaneously keeping the compressor both low vibration and low noise. Sanyo’s tests showed that it achieves approximately 16% reduction in energy use compared to HFC cassette system. The system can be easily removed from the cooler for maintenance or replacement as it matches the size and interfaces of cassettes using traditional refrigeration.

Basic information:
  • Power: 220V
  • Power consumption: 456W (50Hz)
  • Performance: freezer: 0 - 7.2°C
  • Saves energy
  • Easy removal of the cooling unit from the beverage showcase
  • Can be used for bottle coolers that are designed to be compatible with cassette
  • Designed to replace traditional fluorocarbon type cassette
