Arneg USA, a division of the Italian OEM Arneg, has started bringing new propane (R290)-based self-contained commercial cases into the U.S. market this year, according to a company executive.
Some of the air-cooled, island-style cases have already been installed in U.S. stores, said the executive, Howell Feig, vice president, sales & marketing for Arneg USA, in an interview at the FMI Energy & Store Development Conference in Atlanta last month.
Arneg has been selling propane self-contained cases in Europe for eight to 10 years. “We’re going to be trying to migrate as many cases over to propane as we can considering the charge limit,” said Feig.
He is eagerly awaiting a vote by the IEC that would raise the charge limit for propane in commercial cases to 500 g from 150 g.
Feig previously worked for AHT Cooling Systems USA, a major manufacturer of propane cases in the U.S.
Arneg USA is manufacturing CO2cases for remote transcritical rack systems at its Lexington, N.C., headquarters, noted Feig.
