Industry collaboration in Australia will be crucial to raising training standards, implementing a nationwide licensing scheme and providing a legitimate platform for natural refrigerants, according to representatives of leading industry associations interviewed for Accelerate Australia & NZ magazine.
Japan’s Mayekawa and North American companies CIMCO and SCE are collaborating to install and gather data on the performance of the NewTon refrigeration system in the United States.
Natural refrigerants are already delivering efficient and sustainable cooling for industrial applications ranging from cold storage to food production across North America, heard participants in the ATMOsphere America conference in Chicago earlier this month.
EKA (Energi & Kylanalys), specialists in the field of refrigeration, energy analysis and energy efficiency in ice arenas, joins R744.com as a Bronze Partner to showcase its CO2 expertise.
Participants gathered in Chicago for the biggest ever ATMOsphere America are hearing how competition between CO2, hydrocarbons and ammonia is creating exciting new opportunities and driving increased uptake of natural refrigerant-based technologies in the United States.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published in the Federal Register a notice finding carbon dioxide acceptable as a refrigerant in new equipment for ice skating rinks, centrifugal chillers, positive displacement chillers and industrial process air conditioning.
While ammonia has long been an accepted industry standard refrigerant, especially in larger industrial refrigeration systems, a new generation of natural refrigerant technology is shaking up the sector. A special edition Accelerate Corporate, recently published in partnership with Japan-based Mayekawa, investigates further.
Japan-based technology provider Mayekawa Manufacturing Company, Ltd. has announced plans to launch four new models of its highly efficient natural refrigerant-based cooling system, the NewTon, on 21 July 2016. The NewTon R-3000 and R-6000 for cold storage, and F-300 and F-600 for frozen storage, will feature reduced refrigerant charge, system size and weight compared to previous models.
