Air coolers optimized to use natural refrigerantsS. Himmelstein | May 23, 2023
Unlike traditional fluorinated gases, natural refrigerants have zero ozone depletion potential and negligible global warming potential. To promote increased reliance on these sustainable refrigerants, Germany-based Kelvion has re-engineered its CSF/CBF and CSH/CBH cubic air cooler lines with adapted pipe systems to support the demands of low volume systems for carbon dioxide (CO2) or ammonia.
The range, designed in blow and draw-through versions, is available from 5.6 kW up to 175 kW for CO2 and ideally suited for high pressure applications up to 90 bars. A capacity range for ammonia is from 7.7 kW to 224 kW is also available.
In addition, the CDF and CDH ranges have also been extended to accept natural refrigerants as dual discharge air coolers featuring the same capable tube system. With capacities of 6.1 kW to 125 kW for CO2, these units are ideally suited for high pressure applications up to 90 bars. The capacity range for ammonia is from 7.9 kW to 154 kW, and both ranges offer efficient solutions for general refrigeration plants in distribution centers, storage facilities, supermarkets or food processing.
