“We are probably the first European [CO2 manufacturer] to sell equipment in the country,” said SCM Frigo’s Asia Pacific Sales Director.
ATMO LATAM: Transcritical CO2 Is Up to 33% More Efficient Than R404A Systems in Latin America, Says SCM Frigo
Based on five commercial and industrial refrigeration projects across Latin America (LATAM), Italian manufacturer SCM Frigo has found that its transcritical CO2 (R744) systems are 5–33% more efficient than similar R404A solutions. The level of efficiency achieved depends predominantly on the local climate as well as system complexity and the additional technologies deployed, explained Alberto…
ATMO Europe: Transcritical CO2 in Cold Storage Facility Offers 19% Energy Cost Savings Compared to R404A
Based on analysis conducted by manufacturer SCM Frigo, cold storage facility operator Sagat will see an ROI in 4.7 years due to lower operational costs.
ATMO America: Chilean Cold Storage Facility’s CO2 System Achieves 8% Energy Savings Over One with Parallel Compression, Says SCM Frigo
The system “optimizes” the low-temperature demand with medium-temperature “satellite” compression, high-temperature compression, vapor ejection and adiabatic gas cooling.
The Italian OEM’s Smart Booster 2.0 offers a new configuration with more compressors to provide a higher cooling capacity for both low and medium temperatures.
The Italian manufacturer is also launching its iBooster transcritical CO2 rack for industrial applications, which offers up to 1.5MW in refrigeration capacity.
The new unit, which is designed for commercial refrigeration, marks the first time the Italian OEM has used scroll compressor technology for CO2.
The rack is suitable for a wide range of retail applications.
The ATMO Approved label is a global gold standard highlighting best-in-class manufacturers of natural refrigerant systems and components.
The Italian manufacturers have all upgraded from silver status.
