CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂
CTR 3-way heat reclaim valve is designed to allow full proportional control of the surplus heat from compressor pack into the heat exchanger of transcritical heat reclaim solutions, securing availability of heat and hot water. The CTR valve prevents pressure peaks eliminating costly system down-time and the risk of insufficient heat supply for store heating and hot water, regardless of installation size.
CCMT electric regulating valves, transcritical CO₂
The CCMT is an electric operated valve designed specifically for operation in CO2 systems. The valve is capable of functioning either as an expansion valve, as a pressure regulator for the gas cooler or as a gas bypass valve with back-pressure regulation in trans-critical or subcritical applications.
A new shade of green for grocery stores
The supermarket aktiv & irma in Oldenburg, Germany, has pressed the start-button to a solution enabling it to store and generate electricity. The grocery store’s manager calls it a leap forward in energy supply. Danfoss and SMA have helped make it happen. Learn how.
“A real win-win situation!” Danish organic food company reduces climate footprint with CO₂ cooling solution
A stronger environmental profile and energy savings of approx. 30% from a cooling solution that can be expanded as needed. These are the results so far for Danish organic food company Aarstiderne. Since Q1 2018, the company’s facilities at Barritskov, Denmark, have relied on a CO₂ cooling system with Danfoss components delivered by refrigeration installer company JF Køleteknik A/S.
The Danfoss Multi Ejector range for CO₂ refrigeration: design, applications and benefits
Danfoss offers a complete portfolio of gas and liquid ejectors that provide significant benefits in CO2 refrigeration applications. Here we take a closer look at these offerings: the Multi Ejector Low Pressure (LP), the Multi Ejector High Pressure (HP), and the Liquid Ejector (LE). All three ejector products are only available as a complete Multi Ejector Solution™ where the ejector is bundled with the AK-PC 782A pack controller to provide the robust system controls necessary for efficient and reliable operation.
Just add know-how: Danfoss training addresses climate change
How can refrigeration professionals comply with the EU F-gas regulation? What technologies can be used to make the transition to compliant refrigerants? And how can professionals specify, install, service, and use these solutions? Innovation and new approaches require know-how, and Danfoss is offering extensive, user-centric content that builds know-how through training, education, and the sharing of knowledge with the company’s partners, customers, and other stakeholders such as policymakers on several platforms.
Selecting the right evaporator injection algorithm makes a world of difference
Danfoss has pioneered two control algorithms that help you achieve this balance. The Minimum Stable Superheat (MSS) algorithm has been an important part of the Danfoss ADAP-KOOL® offering for years and is still the ideal choice for adaptive evaporator control for dry expansion. Now Danfoss introduces the next generation: Adaptive Liquid Control (ALC).
5 ways connected monitoring and management systems can save food retailers money right now
Many new kinds of store facility technologies promise to help. Big data, automation, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all have the potential to save food retailers time, money, and energy, while preventing food waste.
Supermarket refrigeration, heating, air conditioning, and ventilation work best as an integrated solution. Here’s why.
When you stop and think about it, it’s a little strange that supermarkets usually pay to heat their premises and water while their refrigeration system works overtime to move heat energy outside.
Why are so many supermarkets now choosing CO₂ refrigeration?
Around the world, there is little doubt that CO2 is fast becoming food retailers’ refrigerant of choice. At Danfoss alone, we’re currently seeing supermarkets switching to CO2 refrigeration systems at a rate of around 10,000 a year—and that number is growing fast.
Supermarket energy optimization: why efficiency is only half the story
In the last few years, supermarkets have made great advances in energy efficiency—reducing both overhead and their environmental impact.
Reducing energy use is valuable, and always will be. But there’s another side to reducing energy costs. Increasingly, the biggest potential saving isn’t only in using less energy; it’s in optimizing how it’s used, and when.
What's new with CO₂ : New solutions and trainings for Food Retail applicationsWednesday, May 29, 2019
CO₂ is taking the Food Retail industry by storm and is shaking up how we do business. It offers an eco-friendly and efficient alternative to many refrigerants that are currently being phased out – if you have the right technology, tools, and know-how in place. That’s where we can help.
AK-PC 572 MiniPack controller – CO₂ made easy for small store formatsMonday, April 15, 2019
It's not too long ago that we here at Danfoss stood up and boldly declared, "We love CO₂!" This proclamation contained all the passion, knowledge, and hard work that has gone into shifting the food retail industry from HFCs towards natural refrigerants. Our engineers have developed solutions that help make the refrigerant transition even easier for our customers – and now we’re ready to introduce one more.
