The facility is the fourth such Application Development Center (ADC) worldwide, where OEMs and Danfoss engineers test new cooling solutions.
With the opening of the new Application Development Center in Tallahassee, Florida, Danfoss has added a fourth ADC to its worldwide portfolio.
The other application centres are in Nordborg, Denmark, Oragadam, India and Haiyan, China.
Focused on reducing energy demand
In the ADCs, Danfoss and OEMs have the chance to test new cooling solutions and reduce energy demand.
Currently the buildings sector accounts for 40% of global energy use, from residential buildings and offices to hospitals, supermarkets, and data centres.
“We partner with OEMs to help them incubate new-to-the-world innovations, meet new efficiency standards, improve quality and time-to-market, and reduce emissions and energy related costs."
– Stefan Pietrek, Danfoss's Senior Director
By partnering with OEMs in its testing centres, Danfoss is seeking to reduce the cooling and heat demand in buildings.
“We partner with OEMs to help them incubate new-to-the-world innovations, meet new efficiency standards, improve quality and time-to-market, and reduce emissions and energy related costs,” said Stefan Pietrek, Senior Director, Danfoss Global Applications.
The centre in Tallahassee will focus on flammable refrigerant testing, along with heat pumps, chillers and air-conditioning.
Each facility offers expert support from a local team of highly educated laboratory personnel and two dozen global application experts with knowledge about compressors, controls, sensors, variable frequency controls, brazed plates, micro-channel heat exchangers, and much more.
Danfoss has previously tested and developed solutions with OEMs at its ADCs for supermarket refrigeration, display cases, beer dispensers, chillers, rooftop units, variable refrigerant flow (VRF), transport refrigeration, and others.“Together, we prepare for the transition to new refrigerants and support the industry in meeting the increasingly stringent regulations and standards shaping our future,” Pietrek said.
