ATMO Europe: Transcritical CO2 System’s Efficiency Boosted with Hydrocarbon Heat Pump in Netherlands
An integrated R290 unit improved the R744 system’s COP by nearly 18%.
The Swedish manufacturer aims to make the unit, which will use hydrogen-reduced steel, by 2023.
The online event featured 19 webinars, which garnered more than 8,000 global views on multiple platforms and 52,000 impressions on social media.
Customized system uses R290-chilled glycol to keep the CO2 in subcritical mode.
The global online event, free to attend March 30-31, will cover key market and policy trends and new technologies using natural refrigerants.
The AC540 brazed-plate heat exchanger family is designed to minimize the evaporator’s refrigerant charge and reduce the pressure drop on the secondary side, saving energy.
The Swedish manufacturer aims to develop AI tools to determine what maintenance is needed for its plate heat exchangers.
The collaboration is part of the heat transfer specialist’s efforts to become carbon neutral across its entire value chain by 2030.
