World’s leading manufacturer of low charge ammonia based refrigerant systems, Azane Inc, will talk about the benefits of their environmentally friendly Azanechiller and Azanefreezer, at this year’s IACSC Conference at Fort Lauderdale Harbour Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Florida during November 10-12.
America’s leading low charge ammonia chiller and freezer manufacturer is all set to demonstrate their range of low charge packaged ammonia solutions for public refrigerated warehouses, temperature controlled storage and distribution at tomorrow’s International Association for Cold Storage Construction Conference.
The company recognizes that it is vital for all stakeholders within the cold storage industry to work together in developing the technologies that are proven to future-proof business in the long term.
Caleb Nelson, VP Business Development of Azane, said, “Refrigeration systems are such an integral part of any cold storage facility or construction project that we need to spread the news about the important benefits a packaged system can bring to the project. From schedule, to construction flow onsite, and of course the longstanding benefits through the life of the system such as charge reduction, efficiency and safety”.
The event will open with Nelson shedding some light on the availability of low-charge ammonia cooling options and how their use is not limited by current legislations and changing landscape. Azane will be part of a refrigeration panel which will discuss the most innovative technological advances in the industrial refrigeration market today. Nelson will also highlight the economic, environmental and safety benefits of switching to low charge ammonia refrigeration systems and will be focusing on a transfer of knowledge.
Nelson said, “Traditional ammonia plants containing large amounts of ammonia can now be replaced with modern, safer pre-packaged low charge ammonia units which are in turn able to reduce the refrigerant charge to a minimum. This was the case for one of our customers - a leading distribution company-, which by making use of a low charge ammonia Azanefreezer was able to reduce their existing charge by over 90%, from an estimated 5,000lb to just 360lb.”
With the current changes in the political agenda, there has been a push by many governments to shelve the use of harmful refrigerants, including R22 and HFCs, which have come under criticism for their pernicious effects on climate change as they are linked to ozone depletion and global warming. The recent market trends and environmental pacts, including the recently ratified Paris Climate Agreement and the Montreal Protocol, are now pushing cold storage companies to phase down the use of these gases which up until now have been commonly used in refrigeration systems.
Ammonia has been long known to be one of the most efficient natural refrigerants and it continues to be seen as one of the most viable options for companies looking to replace their existing R22 and HFC systems.
Nelson said, “As a part of the Star Refrigeration Group, we see it as our prime responsibility to offer a safe, climate friendly and law-compliant refrigeration solutions for our customers who have often been burdened by the paperwork and health and safety issues associated with large ammonia plant inventory.”
Azane will also be showcasing their flagship products, Azanechiller and Azanefreezer, and will offer advice on low charge ammonia solution at their booth – stand 27.
IACSC Conference and Expo draw more than 200 temperature-controlled construction and logistics professionals from around the world to gain valuable insight for improving their business. The annual IACSC Conference & Expo is the only event in the world dedicated to cold storage construction, design, and maintenance.
