Some manufacturers and end users are expecting low-charge packaged ammonia systems and ammonia-CO2 cascade systems to face increased competition from CO2 transcritical in the industrial sphere, while foreseeing a boom for ammonia heat pumps.
Ammonia is “a superior refrigerant” to HFOs and low-charge ammonia systems are improving safety and reducing regulatory burdens, Gerard von Dohlen, president of Newark Refrigerated Warehouse, said.
It has been widely acknowledged that the number of technicians trained to handle natural refrigerant systems is dwindling. But the advent of small and standardized low-charge ammonia packaged systems – which can be used instead of traditional massive ammonia plants or synthetic refrigerant systems – will make it easier to train and maintain enough qualified technicians, according to Mike Chapman, director of process safety management (PSM) compliance at Stellar, and Kurt Liebendorfer, vice-president of Evapco.
Johnson Controls’ new York YZ centrifugal chiller is said to be the first such machine designed specifically for use with low GWP refrigerant R1233zd and using magnetic bearing technology.
