These units feature a 70°F floating head pressure control valve and an integral subcooling circuit that allows saturated liquid to flow from the receiver to the condenser where the refrigerant is sub-cooled by ambient air.
The new facility will triple the company’s capacity
February 15, 2017
The Chemours Co., a global chemistry company in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts, and chemical solutions, announced that it has broken ground on a new HFO-1234yf production facility. The new facility, located at the Chemours Corpus Christi plant in Ingleside, Texas, will triple the company’s capacity for its HFO-1234yf-based-products, which are low-global warming potential (GWP) and better for the environment.
This line for hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerant (R290/R600a) use includes electronic expansion valves (EEVs), thermostatic expansion valves (TXVs), reversing valves, check valves, ball valves, and solenoid valves.
The VTC series compressor and electronic controller dynamically matches the capacity of the compressor to the cabinet’s cooling demand. The series features a capacity range from 300 to 1,500 Btu per hour, and is optimized for use with eco-friendly hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerant R-290 (propane).
New ice rinks generally use ammonia as a refrigerant, but R-22 was the choice for many years, and the ice making systems in older rinks can contain several thousand pounds of R-22. In the approaching cold, hard reality of a post-R-22 world, how will rinks keep their ice cold and hard?
Filter driers are designed to remove foreign materials, such as moisture, dirt, sandpaper grit, soldering flux, small solder beads, and acid from a refrigeration or air conditioning system. However, filter driers are notorious for becoming restricted from moisture, sludge, dirt, or oil that has entered the system from a poor service practice or extreme operating conditions.
The first point to understand about refrigeration theory is that heat is energy, and it can be made to move. If enough heat is removed from a glass of water, the water will freeze to ice. When that heat is allowed to move back into the ice, the ice will melt.
