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.
Johnson Controls is celebrating 125 years of its Sabroe brand as a supplier of industrial refrigeration systems in Denmark and globally in 2022. The company was founded by engineer Thomas Ths. Sabroe in 1897 in Aarhus.
Atlas Copco acquired Fitec S.A.S., a French distributor of compressors. The company specializes in the sales and service of rotary screw compressors and ancillary equipment and mainly sells to small and medium-sized industries.
Evaporative condensers are normally considered permit-required confined spaces (PRCS). Under certain conditions, evaporative condensers can be reclassified to non-permit required confined spaces. A guideline document from the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) is intended to help users understand these classifications.
Green Cross Biotherapeutics Inc. (GCBT) operates an intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and albumin manufacturing plant in Montreal, Quebec. The facility required two freezers to store and maintain its product at all times. It also needed multiple process double-jacketed tanks cooled with propylene glycol.
In an interview with Editor Linda Becker, Tom Stone, the national sales manager for industrial markets with Thermal Care, talks about how using variable-frequency drives can improve the process cooling operations. Tom is a speaker at the Process Cooling & Heating Show, the show that focuses exclusively on industrial heating and cooling equipment, components and supplies used in the process industries.
An oil-free compressor with a 400-ton/1,400-kW nominal capacity rating received the Product of the Year Award at the 2022 AHR Expo in Las Vegas. The variable-speed, magnetic-bearing centrifugal compressor utilizes a hybrid compression design that is optimized for use with low-GWP refrigerant R-1233zd.
