The global industrial refrigeration systems market is expected to reach $23.22 billion by 2022, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.24 percent between 2016 and 2022, according to a report published by MarketsandMarkets.
Starting in 2024, the three HFC refrigerants will be deemed “unacceptable” in new liquid chillers under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.
A company has invented and patented a method for freezing edible alcohol products. The consistency of the products ranges from hard and solid through sorbet-like, and all stay frozen in the temperature range of 24°-28° without affecting taste, consistency, or alcohol content.
As heat energy is removed from a substance, its molecular activity will decrease; as heat energy is added, its molecular activity will increase. The intensity of this molecular activity affects the temperature of the substance.
Gains will stem primarily from the rising number of food retail outlets in developing countries
