Designed to help implement a low charge ammonia refrigeration systems management program, a new guide from IIAR, Low Charge Ammonia Refrigeration Management (ARM-LC) Guidebook and Summary Guide, is available.
Combining wet and dry cooling, the Trillium Series optimizes energy and water savings for industrial refrigeration. When the ambient air is below the setpoint, the unit runs as a dry cooler to save water and energy.
The LCCS is an efficient central refrigeration system with a total system ammonia charge of approximately 1.5 to 3 pounds per ton of refrigeration, or 85 to 95 percent less than traditional central ammonia systems.
Canadian refrigeration safety organization Technical Safety BC released an investigation report into the fatal ammonia release at Fernie Memorial Arena. The Vancouver-based group also issued 18 recommendations to further improve safety in ice-rink refrigeration systems.
The 8th International Conference on Ammonia and CO2 Refrigeration Technologies will be held April 11-13 in Ohrid, Macedonia. Topics will include: the design of modern ammonia and CO2 systems and technological innovations; improving energy efficiency; technical guidelines; and safety regulations.
Consider the lifecycle of a head of lettuce: The lettuce is grown, it is harvested, it is transported to be cleaned and wrapped, it is shipped to a grocery store to be displayed, and it is sold. Then, the consumer transports the lettuce home and stores it until it is ultimately eaten.
M&M Refrigeration LLC, a provider of industrial refrigeration equipment and control systems for cold storage, food processing and other industrial applications, was acquired by Atlanta-based Source Capital LLC.
Check out this special page to find products perfectly suited to help you and your process equipment handle high ambient temperature and humidity. As we head into the critical summer cooling season, be sure you know about products that can help solve cooling challenges.
Europe’s F-Gas regulations mandate phase-downs in the amount of HFC refrigerants available. The economics of supply and demand mean refrigerant prices are rising. Effective leak-detection systems can alert users to even small leaks of the increasingly expensive refrigerants.
Under the F-Gas regulations, January marked the start of a sharp phase-down in the amount of HFC refrigerant that will be available to the European Union market: a reduction to 63 percent of the 2015 baseline figure.
For safe operations and maintenance, it is important employees know what is inside the pipes they are working around to prevent accidental exposure to hazards. If the contents in a pipe may be hazardous, that information should be clearly communicated as a matter of human safety.
