Compressors, often referred to as the heart of the refrigeration cycle, are typically the largest energy consumers. Condensers fill the role of rejecting heat from a refrigerated space to the atmosphere by condensing the refrigerant.
The 2019 R&T Forum will be held at the Pyle Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. The annual training meeting of the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium, planned for May 8-9, includes an agenda that explores ways to improve industrial ammonia refrigeration systems.
Three large compressors have been installed behind a glass wall in the meeting center at Danfoss headquarters in Denmark so customers and guests can see the product in operation. The Turbocor units provide cooling for the ventilation system and other cooling systems in the main office building.
Danfoss is accepting entries for its 10th annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition, which recognizes OEMs, building owners, municipalities, contractors and end users for advancement in energy efficiency and environmental responsibility.
In late January, Bitzer Nigeria and the Institute for Industrial Technology, a local refrigeration and air-conditioning training center in Lagos, Nigeria, celebrated a new partnership. Bitzer donated its Ecostar condensing units and other accessories to the institute.
Howden completed its move to a 35,000 ft2 service center in Houston to meet demand from the oil-and-gas market. The company will service centrifugal fans, cooling fans, air preheaters, reciprocating compressors, blowers, centrifugal compressors and screw compressors.
Opteon XL41 (R-454B)-compatible compressors are now part of the product portfolio from compressor manufacturer Bitzer, Sindelfingen, Germany. All Bitzer Orbit scroll compressor series are now fully capable of working with Opteon XL41 (R-454B).
Evapoway is designed to help companies with the evaporation of frost and condensate where no drain is available or practical. The electric condensate evaporators have passed rigorous testing and are UL recognized.
The Vertex evaporative condenser reduces installation costs by 30 percent, says the manufacturer. The evaporative condenser design allows the upper part to be aligned to the lower section in less than 15 minutes per cell.
