EuroShop 2017, the challenge of natural refrigerants

The fiftieth Euroshop held last March in Düsseldorf was the biggest in the event’s history. The organisers have announced record numbers: more than 113,000 visitors, a total of 2,368 companies exhibiting, 18 halls occupied and a net exhibition area of 127,000 m 2.   As regards commercial refrigeration, the sector I know best and have been dealing with for many years now, the...

From 150 to 500 g of propane: higher charge, same risk?

2018 may be the year when the charge limit of 150 g for flammable refrigerants in commercial refrigerators will be increased to 500. This may be a very important step towards the use of natural refrigerants , while on the other hand it entails a huge responsibility in terms of safety. Indeed, the working group that is defining the additional requirements has the scope of ensuring that the...

The mobile app revolution also involves the HVAC/R market

Today it seems perfectly normal to get out our smartphone and with a simple touch of an icon, check our email, check the weather forecast, find a good restaurant for dinner tonight and invite our friends in a chat group. Our daily tasks are constantly facilitated by what those simple coloured icons let us do. Yet the technology behind them is relatively young: indeed, most of us will...

Are self-contained units ready for natural refrigerants?

The new requirements for reducing CO 2 emissions due to refrigerant and electricity consumption are leading retailers to consider other alternatives to traditional centralised systems. One of the preferred options is the use of plug-in and semi plug-in units , and these are indeed being increasingly used worldwide in different types of supermarkets, especially medium-sized stores. The...

What happens at Purdue, innovates the HVAC/R industry…and just might save the world

Every other summer since 1972 a community of brilliant minds comprised of academic researchers, students, and industry professionals gather in central Indiana, USA to share their findings on various topics that push the limits of current technologies in the built environment. This past week under the backdrop of a scorching July heatwave the Purdue University held its 24 th Compressor...

The best trade-off for a low carbon footprint in commercial refrigeration units

Undoubtedly the best results in terms of reducing carbon footprint and environmental impact are achieved using a variable-speed compressor working with a natural refrigerant, i.e. R-290 (Propane), with intrinsically high thermodynamic efficiency. In our point of view, a compressor for a plug-in commercial refrigeration unit (i.e.: bottle coolers, chest freezers, display cases) should be: ...

New efficiency limits for condensing units!

Less than 4 months remain to prepare for more stringent limits on European condensing units! In detail, Ecodesign requires an increase in efficiency of between 6-14 %, depending on the categories, compared to the 2016 tiers. This comes at a crucial moment for HFC phase-down and with some uncertainty among condensing unit manufacturers regarding the alternative refrigerants to be used, which...

How will commercial refrigeration develop in the future?

Undoubtedly, the expansion of commercial refrigeration is likely to continue due to the growing importance of food preservation . The food chain from “ field to fork ” must be able to guarantee food quality and safety , and above all for fresh products with a short shelf-life this can only be ensured by low temperature transport and storage, so as to prevent bacterial growth: indeed, ...
