The Danish manufacturer is working with Indian research institutes to introduce CO2 refrigeration for Indian conditions.
Cooling of the Large Hadron Collider’s tracking detectors will be based on a two-stage R744 booster system, with a secondary pumped CO2 loop.
The manufacturer aims to strengthen the development of new systems to meet stringent EU and global regulations.
The new facilities will include work on new transcritical CO2 solutions, following research at Emerson’s nearby Helix Innovation Center.
CO2 evaporators should be operated without superheat, heat recovery should be employed, says Professor Armin Hafner.
The U.S. company will also be featuring a new rack supervisor and facility management controller for transcritical CO2 booster systems.
Researchers have found a CO2-based heat pump to be the most efficient of four options studied for mobile air conditioning.
TÜV SÜD has opened a new test station in its Center of Competence near Munich. It is Europe’s biggest independent controlling station for refrigeration systems.
