LU-VE Group, specialised in heat exchangers for refrigeration, air conditioning and industrial applications, is joining as bronze partner. Active in the field of CO2 refrigeration since 2005, LU-VE can today look back on many high-tech solutions adopted successfully as well as a high number of plants installed in the field of CO2.

LU-VE has produced a gas cooler for one of the world’s first transcritical R744 refrigeration system installed in a Swiss supermarket in 2008. Now LU-VE is joining as a new bronze partner in order to present its quality R744 heat exchangers on an international platform.

LU-VE’s ideal R744 exchanger configuration

The appropriate choice of heat exchanger technology is fundamental to the successful construction of high-efficiency CO2 installations. For this reason, LU-VE in association with the Politecnico di Milano and several customers carried out a specific project that led to the definition of the ideal exchanger configuration: one that is capable of exploiting to the utmost the special characteristics of this refrigerant and of obtaining interesting benefits.
