Ammonia refrigeration is the one of the oldest refrigerants used. The running costs are low. It requires less energy than most competitors, because the refrigerant has a great ability to absorb a large amount of heat when it evaporates.
As natural refrigerant ammonia is toxic and slightly flammable, safety is crucial to its market success. Adequate safety measures are essential. NH3 is classifies as a B2L refrigerant.
Low charge ammonia (NH3) is climbing the ladder in the industrial sector. Applications getting bigger, charges getting smaller.
Natural refrigerants CO2, ammonia and hydrocarbons have been used in different HVAC & R applications for many years. With the exception of a few sectors, their market penetration has remained relatively low.
SCM Ref in the Netherlands was commissioned by Beijer Ref to develop a chiller unit for cooling water or glycol-containing water.
Many colleagues have worked with enthusiasm to make this project a success.
Our aim to reduce the carbon footprint with our Innovative technology and high efficiency NH3 Chillers is one step towards the solution.
