Star performance aids CO2 refrigeration lessons

STAR Refrigeration's engineers lent their expertise to create what they claim is the world's first carbon dioxide refrigeration e-learning course accredited by CIBSE.
The course available online now, introduces the basics of working on carbon dioxide 2 systems and helps prepare students for further study of advanced CO2 refrigeration systems.

The course covers design, installation and maintenance issues, including the advantages of using carbon dioxide, the functionality of different refrigeration systems, including volatile secondary, volatile secondary with DX, volatile secondary/cascade, trans-critical and direct expansion.

The course is designed to educate those working with CO2 or about to use these systems.

Interest in carbon dioxide technology has rapidly grown in the last few years as it provides high refrigeration capacities for compressor size while CO2 is ozone friendly and has a low global warming potential. Regulations have further restricted the use of CFC and HFC refrigerants due to their damaging effect on the environment.

Star Refrigeration's engineers developed the course with information about the use of CO2 in refrigeration systems collected from sources around the world to create the two-module course, including CO2 fundamentals and CO2 refrigeration system basics. Danfoss also contributed by providing learning material.

Students achieving an 80% or more in the final test will receive a diploma certified by CIBSE and the Construction CPD International service.

Star Refrigeration is the UK's largest independent refrigeration company and has worked on the development of CO2 technologies and solutions that reduce users' environmental impact and running costs for more than 15 years.
