CONYERS, Ga. — Hillphoenix has introduced its new AdvansorFlex CO2 refrigeration system, which the company said delivers all the benefits of CO2 refrigeration in a compact and scalable format for small and medium-sized retailers.

As part of its Advansor CO2 platform, Hillphoenix said AdvansorFlex is an environmentally sustainable HFC-free system that uses the natural refrigerant CO2. Both Advansor CO2 and AdvansorFlex CO2 are part of Hillphoenix’s Second Nature® line of alternative refrigeration systems. Because it relies solely on CO2, which has a global warming potential of 1, the company said AdvansorFlex is U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) compliant, now and in the future.

“AdvansorFlex is ideal for smaller retailers who want the environmental benefits and energy savings of CO2 refrigeration but don’t have the square footage for a full-sized system,” said Dustan Atkinson, product strategy manager for Hillphoenix. “Multiple AdvansorFlex units can also be grouped together in a distributed system, so it’s good for larger stores as well.”

A single AdvansorFlex unit can serve as a centralized refrigeration system in smaller stores such as convenience stores, pharmacies, and smaller format grocery stores. The unit’s weatherproof enclosure allows for both inside and outdoor placement, and its compact footprint takes up less floor space in back rooms, equipment rooms, mezzanines, and rooftops. Hillphoenix said the system also provides straightforward installation, ease of maintenance, and reliable, cost-saving, day-to-day operation.
