The designer and manufacturer of industrial and commercial heating and cooling solutions using the natural refrigerants CO2 (R744), ammonia (NH3; R717) and hydrocarbons (R290) is now a silver partner.

TEKO– a designer and manufacturer of industrial and commercial heating and cooling solutions using the natural refrigerants CO2 (R744), ammonia (NH3; R717) and hydrocarbons (R290) based in Altenstadt, Germany – recently became a silver partner of R744.com.

“We expect the trend for natural refrigerants to pick up speed and we have the answers for it. We offer a big range of reliable series products, simple to use and with the highest efficiency, which are needed and requested from the market,” Andreas Meier, General Manager at TEKO, told R744.com.

The company believes CO2 is set for big things. “It will become the most successful refrigerant in the future. We’ve seen the number of requests for CO2 solutions double every six months for the last two years,” Meier told R744.com.

TEKO has installed 2,500 CO2 systems to date.

The company has already released two products in its ROXSTA range for industrial and small capacities. “On one side we are working for more industrial projects [and] on the other side we are working on more commercialised small capacity CO2 units,” he said.

To increase the efficiency of CO2 further, the company has developed the EVALIFT. “The technology of EVALIFT is very efficient. You’ll save up to 20% energy by increasing the evaporation temperature,” he explained.

600 people trained in CO2 and Wurm control systems per year

To complement its well-known product range, TEKO has been offering training at its CO2 testing and training centre in Altenstadt since 2006.

“Last year we were able to welcome over 600 people for training courses,” he said.

For CO2 the participants get a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of CO2, plant technologies, system components, installation, safety devices, control technology, and commissioning. They also receive practical training on TEKO’s CO2 test racks.

The testing centre tests all components and systems that TEKO is considering manufacturing or using in its systems. “We also test different types of control strategies which will be implemented in the refrigeration systems, including eco-compression, heat recovery, heat pump and air conditioning functions,” Meier said.
