Ammonia, which is produced by biological processes and naturally decomposes, is an efficient and trusted refrigerant. It is also a natural refrigerant without the threat of global warming, having a GWP (Global Warming Potential) rating of 0 or depleting the ozone, having a ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) rating of 0.
Ammonia has great heat transfer properties and is typically is more energy efficient for both high and low temperature applications and can be up to 10% more efficient over other refrigerants.
Add to those benefits is that it is cost-efficient because narrow-diameter piping may be used and more energy efficient (3-10% more efficient than CFC’s) which results in lower operating costs.
It is critical that when using a natural refrigerant chiller, such as ammonia that the system be regularly monitored to ensure that the chiller is functioning properly to ensure workers safety. With ammonia, even the slightest leaks are quickly and easily detected due to the pungent and offending odor. However, it needs to be noted that steps must be taken to prevent liquid ammonia from getting into a sewage system or seeping into the ground.
The low-charge Ammonia Chillers from Budzar Industries are based on more than 40 years of engineering, designing and manufacturing experience in the process heat transfer industry.
Low Charge Ammonia Chillers are available in air-cooled evaporator condenser or water-cooled configurations. Each Ammonia chiller engineered, designed and manufactured by Budzar Industries utilizes high quality industrial components that are selected to give our chillers a long service life, deliver reliability, accuracy and dependability.
