Many supermarkets converted their chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigeration systems to hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) systems only to see HFCs targeted for a phaseout. Now, they’re hearing about natural refrigerants, distributed refrigeration, and cascade systems.

Part of the ‘Making Sense’ series from Emerson Climate Technologies
June 29, 2015
Emerson Climate Technologies Inc. will host a webinar, “Seven Keys to Servicing CO2 Systems,” to explore the many operating implications of a CO2 (R-744)-based refrigeration system. The complimentary webinar will be held Tuesday, July 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT.
This case study documents one year of operating experience with a transcritical carbon dioxide (TC CO2) booster refrigeration system at Delhaize America’s Hannaford supermarket location in Turner, Maine. This store, which began operation in June 2013, is the first supermarket installation in the U.S. of a TC CO2 booster refrigeration system.
Everyone talks about what it initially costs a supermarket to switch to a 100 percent CO2 commercial refrigeration system. But start thinking about the costs that come next — on everything from electricity to regulatory compliance — and the return on investment on CO2 begins to make a great deal of sense.
