ABC Food Machinery updates the cooling system of a Slovak tanner with R723 refrigerant.
The manufacturer installed over 40 units in Europe in 2022.
The four chillers deliver a total cooling capacity of roughly 3MW (853TR) to the site’s five ice rinks.
The mCHILLER FUGU is a new water-cooled ammonia chiller designed for industrial applications like breweries, process cooling and data centers.
The FUGU mCHILLER chillers, introduced to the U.S. late last year, feature very low charge and compact size.
Intarcon says its Ammolite chillers have a lower life-cycle cost than do HFO, R290 and water-cooled ammonia chillers.
PureChill packaged units are available in sizes from 30 to 400TR (106 to 1,407kW).
The air-cooled models are expected to cost less than water-cooled units.
New Grundfos units use temperature sensors to regulate water flow.
