Refrigerants

Refrigeration and air conditioning technologies have thrived and become commonplace built upon the solid foundation of safe and efficient working fluids. However, regulations relating to the production of chlorine-containing refrigerants which deplete stratospheric ozone, means that the industry faces a number of years of unprecedented change.

Munters IceDry - A guide to conditioning Cold Stores

Munters IceDry - A guide to conditioning Cold Stores

Throughout the world, different cold stores have different configurations, but none can fully resolve a problem common to all cold store operators - FROST! Water and ice create dangerous slippery conditions in the loading dock with ice building up and around the store entrances. Ice also builds up around the inside of the cold store, including the intake to the evaporator coils and the components critical for maintaining products at sub zero temperatures. This creates the need for constant defrosts and stretches the capability of the cooling apacity of your equipment, whislt using a great deal of energy. Safety issues can arise when fog forms around door entrances, cauing poor visibility. Snow accumulates on product, creating the potential for collapsing cases. Ice and snow also build up on cold store ceilings and floots with the potential to fall on people, and form dangerous uneven floors for fork lift trucks carrying loads at speed. The reduced visibility from fog also increases loading times.

Sanhua accepts the challenge of new low-GWP refrigerants

Sanhua accepts the challenge of new low-GWP refrigerants

A couple of years earlier than expected, 2018 is proving to be a critical year for the entire Refrigeration and Air Conditioning sector. European Regulation 517/2014 provides for a gradual reduction (Phase Down), from 2015, in the use of HFC refrigerants by refrigeration equipment manufacturers. In, this reduction imposed by the legislation must amount to 37% during the current year, while the subsequent steep drop to 45% is to be achieved by 2020. However, we are witnessing a dramatic acceleration of the Phase Down process, in large part due to difficulty in obtaining the most common HFC refrigerants and the consequent sudden and dramatic increase in prices, in accordance with the well-known market rules of supply and demand. This situation is directly controlled by the multinational refrigerant gas producers that have implemented a political and commercial strategy of strong obstruction to the use of widely used refrigerants such as R410a, R134a and R404a. This has effectively forced the entire sector to find and introduce alternative refrigeration fluids.
