Danfoss has launched a mobile training unit equipped with carbon dioxide (CO₂) solutions and interactive learning modules to help boost CO₂ refrigeration system competency among system builders, refrigeration contractors, service technicians, installers, and technical departments of food retailers.
“Our mobile training unit will go a long way in promoting the benefits of CO₂. The training unit features equipment and components for CO₂ solutions, accompanied by hands-on training panels, along with onsite instruction by dedicated Danfoss CO₂ champions who will share their in-depth knowledge of the natural refrigerant’s properties and the opportunities and challenges surrounding the use of CO₂,” said Hans Ole Matthiesen, segment marketing director, food retail, Danfoss.
The CO₂ solutions presented in the mobile training unit range from simple gas-bypass systems to more complex parallel compression solutions with or without heat reclaim. The training unit introduces Danfoss’ new ejector technology, which Danfoss says may prove to be a key in the evolution of transcritical CO₂ refrigeration. These ejectors have the potential to enhance the energy efficiency of their systems by up to 20 percent on the hottest days of the year, solving the problem that previously limited the use of transcritical CO₂ systems to milder climates.
According to Danfoss, the mobile training unit will be updated regularly with new components, information, and learning modules to reflect any changes. The first event was on Jan. 10 in Baltimore.
Danfoss will launch several training containers to serve key markets in North America, Europe, and Asia. The training unit can accommodate up to 12 people at a time.
