Johnson Controls, together with its affiliated brands York and RuskinTitus, joined Eurovent Middle East, an industry association representing manufacturers of process cooling, food cold chain, industrial ventilation and building automation technologies.
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.
Transcritical CO2 industrial refrigeration technology will find use on the high seas as a commercial cruise ship operator inks a contract with GEA. The green refrigeration technology has already been installed on board P&O Cruises’ 2,000-passenger ship Arcadia, where it will deliver the energy-efficient cooling supply for all of the ship’s food-and-beverage refrigeration units.
Fixed gas detectors suited for industrial refrigeration applications includes multiple communication and integration options for improved operational reliability. The gas detectors offer ease of calibration and maintenance procedures to enable high service efficiency and regulatory compliance, says manufacturer Danfoss.
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.
