ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - XDX® Innovative Refrigeration has released the latest version of its Mysticool Max™ valve, which the company says can reduce energy consumption by 15 percent or more in commercial refrigeration and air conditioning applications.

According to XDX, over the past 10 years, its patented technologies have been utilized by bakeries, entertainment venues, food manufacturers, process cooling, full service and quick serve restaurants, hospitals, schools, and others to reduce energy usage, meet environmental initiatives, and also stabilize temperature to ensure food safety and decrease food shrinkage and spoilage.

The Mysticool Max valve features XDX’s X-stream® and A.R.M.E.D.® technologies and is retrofitted into existing refrigeration and HVAC systems. The valve is lighter than previous versions, features a molded jacket that is insulated with a washable surface, and has fewer connections for faster installation. The latest valve is now rated for 700 psi to accommodate newly developed refrigerants. Unit pricing and installation varies by equipment size and region of the country.

“Our new valve fulfills a variety of needs, for both food service operators and others who simply need to lower energy costs of major cooling systems,” said Susan M. Foster, senior manager of sales & customer support for XDX. “Most importantly, we can help assure the safety of food here in the U.S. and abroad as we keep food fresher for longer, at a minimal cost and little or no upkeep.”

In addition to refrigeration systems, Foster noted that a number of companies, including quick serve restaurants, major universities, and entertainment venues, have utilized XDX technology to increase air conditioning efficiency.
