Ultra-low temperature systems are used to achieve low temperature baths or boxes for laboratory use, storage of pharmaceutical or biological samples, low temperature manufacturing of metals, or extreme temperature environmental testing.
Midwest Refrigerants’ approach to the destruction of unwanted refrigerants has gained approval that will now allow startup of the process in the United States in mid-2012. What is the company's process?
Recent reports from overseas have revealed that rogue refrigerants were used in hundreds of transport HFC-134a refrigeration systems, which resulted in a number of explosions and at least three deaths. World trade press, industry manufacturers, and watchdog websites have been issuing statements in recent weeks as part of this ongoing story.
Based on the company’s Refrigerant Slider, the KoolApp refrigerant converter mobile app converts mobile devices that use Android and Apple IOS into user-friendly pressure-to-temperature refrigerant converters. It is designed for installers, distributors, and producers of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
“The sky isn’t falling. There are plenty of options.” Those words are from Rajan Rajendran, director of engineering services for Emerson Climate Technologies to an audience of supermarket engineers at the Food Marketing Institute Energy & Store Development Conference.
While there are no pending regulations that would curb production of HFCs, those specific refrigerants are a part of the equation when talk turns to the broad, emotionally laden topic of global warming.
No technology has stirred up more attention in recent years than use of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a refrigerant in both stationary and mobile HVACR applications. And yet the technology has more people head scratching over it in terms of dealing with the pressures, efficiencies, installation costs, and servicing skills.
