Carrier Transicold's Athens facility, a leading producer of transport refrigeration equipment for trucks, trailers and rail cars, has been named a 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plant, making it the first transport refrigeration equipment facility ever recognized with this award.
Automatic solution eliminates the cost of manual, inaccurate monitoring of refrigeration units
January 28, 2016
Zebra Technologies Corp. and Atmel® Corp. announced the demonstration of a smart refrigeration Internet of Things (IoT) reference design at NRF 2016 in New York City. The companies said the IoT reference design provides an easy-to-deploy, cloud-based temperature monitoring solution.
The Carel HEOS Sistema is a high-efficiency solution for refrigerated cases. It features remote cases fitted with variable-speed BLDC compressors cooled by a water loop. Each case can adapt its operating pressure to the load conditions in real time, allowing the compressor to operate in the most energy-advantageous conditions.
ComStar International is introducing two new refrigerants. RS-44B (R-453A) is a low-global warming potential (GWP), energy-saving HFC refrigerant that replaces R-22 in a/c and refrigeration applications without an oil or component change.
