CO2 - Carbon Dioxide
CO2 – Carbon Dioxide Chillers
CO2-Carbon Dioxide Chillers are not new. Carbon Dioxide has been used as a refrigerant for more than 100 years. Beginning in the 1890’s, meat and other food products were transported to Europe using refrigerated vessels from Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.
After being replaced by CFC’s and HCFC’s, the usage of Carbon Dioxide as a refrigerant is of great interest.
From an environmental viewpoint, Carbon Dioxide Chillers (CO2) are incredibly attractive. Carbon Dioxide is naturally occurring, abundant in the atmosphere, nonflammable and non-toxic. Add to that it is a very good heat transfer coefficient, is relatively insensitive to pressure losses and has very low viscosity.
Benefits of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Chillers
- Environmentally Safe; CO2 is already in the atmosphere
- Significantly higher volumetric cooling capacities
- Leaks will not damage products
- Highly efficient even in large systems
- CO2 is non‐toxic and non‐flammable
Natural Refrigerant Carbon-Dioxide Chillers from the Budzar Green line of Budzar Industries are ideal for medium temperature cooling and suitable for either indoor or outdoor configurations and are both energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
Features of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Chillers
- Transcritical and/or Subcritical design
- Brazed or welded joints
- Electronic Expansion Valve
- High pressure safety controls
- Heat Reclaim options
The Budzar Green Carbon Dioxide Chillers from Budzar Industries feature precise temperature control and are ideal for commercial and industrial refrigeration systems, transport refrigeration, compact systems, dairies, and supermarkets.
The Carbon Dioxide (CO2) chillers use are based on more than 40 years of engineering, designing and manufacturing experience in the process heat transfer industry. Carbon Dioxide chillers, manufactured with industrial quality components are selected to give our chillers a long service life, deliver reliability, accuracy and dependability using a natural refrigerant and are safe for the environment.
