Researchers also looked at the effects of mechanical subcooling and vapor ejectors, using a model developed with field measurements taken from an Italian supermarket.
According to new study, economizers and extra compression make transcritical suitable in most European climates, saving up to 8.5% in energy consumption.
A subcooling system equipped with thermoelectric modules improves cooling capacity up to 33%, and COP upto 24%, a study found.
Transcritical chiller offers payback on 47% premium in a few years, says Zero Zone paper that compares CO2, NH3 and R448A.
A study by the National Technical University of Athens shows a mean 23% COP improvement via subcooling with an ammonia absorption chiller.
CO2-based technology can provide efficient heating and cooling in Spanish supermarkets despite the country’s warm climate, according to a paper presented by experts from the NTNU and SINTEF at Gustav Lorentzen this week. Estimations based on six representative cities show how HFC-free solutions lead to remarkable energy savings. The EU F-Gas Regulation bans the use…
A study conducted by Emerson and ILK Dresden concludes that integral hydrocarbon display cases are more efficient than remote CO2 transcritical rack systems.
