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.
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.
