This Danish university is at the forefront of the refrigerant revolution with low-GWP scroll chillers

Friday, 30 August 2019

The new CIE in Denmark will meet a growing demand for a qualified workforce in the field of electronic engineering. Advanced labs for education and research will put a high demand on the cooling system. Therefore, Danfoss and partner G.I. Industrial Holding are introducing one of the first chillers using the refrigerant R452B. It has some of the lowest Global Warming Potential for scroll systems available today. 

The low GWP is a specific choice from Danfoss owners, The BMC Foundation, who supports the university. The chiller using R452B will cut the GWP by 67 %, reducing CO2   impact on the environment.

The solutions provided by G.I. Industrial Holding features multi refrigerant Danfoss Scrolls DSH, MPHE, electronics, sensors and valves.

 “We definitely see customers asking for low GWP solutions. They want to increase their energy savings and reduce their climate footprint,” says Francisco Fadiga, Francesco Fadigà, Technical Director, G.I. Industrial Holding SpA. “The transition to lower GWP refrigerants is accelerating. This solution here is actually the first in Denmark where we are using the new refrigerant combined with the Danfoss compressor Scroll with IDVs. We chose to develop the chiller with R452B and DSH multi refrigerant compressors  as it allows us to reach the same high-efficiency, reliable and flexible solution compared to standard units with R410A refrigerant but with a much lower GWP, “he adds.
