With the ongoing adoption of transcritical COrefrigeration systems in North America, the Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin introduced three new CO2-related components for the North American market at the Food Marketing Institute’s Energy & Store Development Conference, held September 23-26 in Atlanta.

The new components include an electronic expansion valve (EEV), and rack and case controllers designed to make CO2 systems more cost competitive, according to Sporlan.

“We are expanding our COline to do more – faster speed, more powerful and better performance,” said Clay Rohrer, business unit manager for Parker Hannifin, a Mayfield Heights, Ohio-based component maker.

The components are also lower cost “to be more competitive,” said Rohrer. “One of the problems with COis the electronic valves are more expensive.” COsystems’ cost is also boosted by the cost of case controls, he added.

The SPW EEV for COis a pulse width modulated (PWM) valve for evaporator coils.

The MT-700 series COcontrols platform covers racks, parallel compressors, ejectors and adiabatic or air-cooled condensers/gas coolers.

The S3C Bluetooth case controller can be used for COand other refrigerants.
