Embraco eyeing use of eco refrigerants

European customers are seeking possibilities to comply with new legislation, enacted by European Parliament in 2014 and designed to ban refrigerants with higher global-warming potential (over 150) from the market by 2020.
This means that especially commercial refrigerating products, which are now produced in large quantities for use with old-type cooling media (in some producers with over 50 percent of production volumes), need a big rehaul in the next few years.
As the detailed tests in the company's laboratories have shown, few alternative refrigerants are able to supply currently-used refrigerants without further changes in the refrigerating system. The biggest problem is posed by higher temperatures.
The presentation 'The latest trends in refrigeration' by Embraco will be held on Thursday February 18, at Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Theatre at 10:30am, and the comapny will be presenting its ecological and energy-saving products at the stand of Hawco at ACR 2016, is one of the largest manufacturers of hermetic compressors for refrigeration.
