ATMOsphere America 2016 – The use of R290 as an excellent option to reduce energy consumption

Once more, Huayi Compressor Barcelona will participate in the ATMOsphere events organized by Shecco. ATMOsphere America 2016 will be held in Chicago during 16th and 17th of June. This event represents an excellent meeting point for decision makers and refrigeration market leaders of North America.

During this event, our R&D Director – Mr. Vicente Guilabert, will present the optimum low energy consumption results from the case study “The lowest energy consumption when using R290 LBP fixed speed compressors in a plug-in ice cream conservator”.

In particular, this test shows how to reach 25% of energy saving from the complete refrigeration system only by replacing the compressor with our U Range NUT60LRb single speed model using R290 refrigerant. This comparison is done by substituting high efficiency L Range models NLY60LRa and NLY60LRb. Further 40% energy savings could be obtained using our variable speed motor compressors.

This energy saving coming from compressor EER improvement is automatically transferred to the considerable reduction of CO2 emissions directly connected to the lower energy requirements. This in turn is translates into reduction of CO2 emissions to the environment, as well savings in energy cost, both direct benefits that end users enjoy.

These results demonstrate that R290 is one of the best Natural Refrigerant alternatives for light commercial refrigeration applications. R290 provides excellent GWP, and refrigeration systems don’t require significant changes with respect to current HFC’s or other ecological alternatives as in the case of CO2. R290 has been applied in the most efficient appliances produced in Europe from last few years with very positive results and is beginning to be used in North America as a feasible option.
