Wider application of CO2 …
The market for CO2 based refrigeration systems is still far from becoming mainstream but there has been significant growth within this sector over the past 24 months.
No longer is CO2 purely the preserve of the carbon footprint focused retail sector or the BREEAM specifier, we now see other refrigeration dependent applications recognising the genuine efficiency & environmental benefits of utilising natural & low global warming refrigerants.
The increased activity within the CO2 refrigeration market is driving developments in technology, but one of the main barriers to widening the scope of CO2 application remains the lack of focus and knowledge within the specification community.
Experience with a proven track record …
For this reason the Italian manufacturer Enex, who are recognised as being one of the leaders in the design & manufacture of packaged CO2 refrigeration equipment, has appointed Green Cooling as their UK distribution partner.
Green Cooling’s management team has extensive experience within the CO2 and Hydrocarbon refrigeration sectors from both design and installation perspectives. This experience is driving the impressive growth of Green Cooling within the specialist area of natural and low global warming refrigeration.
The management of Enex feel that the specialist approach of Green Cooling, which is geared towards providing highly efficient refrigeration systems, with a low environmental impact, fits perfectly with the Enex range of CO2 equipment.
Green Cooling provides a complete service covering the design, specification, installation and commissioning of refrigeration systems across a wide range of critical applications.
The Green Cooling management team have been working alongside the team at Enex for a number of years and this close relationship has now brought the two companies together in a formal distributor/manufacturer partnership.
Garry Broadbent of Green Cooling comments:
“We are extremely pleased that we are now able to offer the Enex CO2 range on a formal UK distribution basis”, continuing, “our approach is best practice driven and totally engineering focused which is completely aligned with the way Enex operate”.
Typical Enex 50kW packaged CO2 refrigeration unit with dual -25°C/0°C outputs plus optional 100% heat recovery output at 50°C.
Great potential for CO2 cooling & heating …
The Enex range includes low temperature -25°C and medium temperature 0°C packaged CO2 refrigeration units for freezer and chiller applications. However the Enex range also includes 80°C CO2 air & ground source heat pumps for the production of hot water.
It is clear that the Enex CO2 range will provide very clear & definite benefits for BREEAM projects, however the range will also prove to be extremely beneficial for any project that is geared towards delivering a practical high efficiency refrigeration system.< Back to Blog
