R744 innovations from Japan Part 2: integrated systems and improving CO2 system efficiency in warm climates
In part 2 of our reporting on the CO2 technology innovations discussed at ATMOsphere Asia 2015 we focus on the presentations from Carel, Bitzer, and Danfoss on integrated CO2 systems and technologies to increase the energy efficiency of CO2 in warm climates. These include more traditional systems such as mechanical subcooling and newer ones such as parallel compression and ejectors.
The use of CO2 as a refrigerant is becoming increasingly widespread in food processing industries, and is beginning to make inroads in industrial heat pump applications. TINE Dairy, which is Norway’s largest producer, distributor and exporter of dairy products, is committed to upholding its sustainable profile and strives to keep up to date with the most climate friendly and energy efficient technologies. With this in mind, TINE’s factory close to the city of Trondheim in
The new IntelOil is designed to electronically control the oil level in the compressor crankcase, using high resolution float-sensor technology. The standard product has a maximum working pressure of 60 barg and the high pressure version has a maximum working pressure of 120 barg, which is suitable for use in transcritical CO2 systems.
