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.
Danfoss has been named a winner of three 2020 AHR Expo Innovation Awards. The company won in the cooling (interlaced microchannel heat exchanger), green building (Turbocor TG490 compressor) and refrigeration (CO2 adaptive liquid management solution) categories.
Danfoss named Arctic Chiller Group the winner of its 10th annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition. Arctic Chiller Group is using Turbocor oil-free magnetic-bearing centrifugal compressors in the development of its air- and water-cooled chillers to reduce first costs of equipment and energy consumption.
The industrial cooling system market will surpass $25 billion by 2025, according to a research report by Global Market Insights Inc. The report cites an increasing demand for reliable, efficient cooling systems coupled with technological advancement. Such demand driving new cooling systems installations to enhance component and manufacturing operations.
SPX Corp. completed the acquisition of SGS Refrigeration Inc. of Dixon, Ill. SGS manufactures and distributes industrial refrigeration products, including industrial evaporators and evaporative condensers, in the North American market.
The line of DSH scroll compressors from Danfoss has been qualified for use with R454B and R452B refrigerants, providing OEMs an alternative to R410A. The option to use lower-GWP refrigerants was prompted by the European Union’s ongoing phase-down of high GWP refrigerants, limiting availability and increasing the price of R410A.
Atlas Copco agreed to acquire Eurochiller S.r.l., an Italian manufacturer and distributor of industrial cooling equipment and related products. Based in Mortara, Eurochiller manufactures and services industrial cooling and heat-treatment products as well as related systems used in industrial manufacturing processes.
