To meet LATAM’s growing demand for natural refrigerants, Weston is developing larger R290 plug-ins and chillers in line with new international safety standards.
The Brazilian manufacturer installed its first Highpack PRO chiller system at a supermarket in June 2023 and has plans for projects in Colombia and Costa Rica next year.
To prove the business case for new technologies and support the adoption of natural refrigerants, case studies must focus on the end-user experience, they added.
Natural refrigerants are the best option for high-temperature heat pumps, which are important for building decarbonization in Europe, according to the European Environmental Bureau.
The Austrian manufacturer’s KALEA range covers both medium- and low-temperature applications and is available in plug-in and semi plug-in units.
The Dutch manufacturer launched its hybrid Blackbird heat pump earlier in 2023 and wants to deliver 1,000 units in its first year.
The five-day tour encouraged international cooperation and knowledge sharing between government and industry representatives from various Article 5 countries.
The Everest290 range of air-cooled modular heat pumps can produce high-temperature hot water up to 70°C in ambient temperatures down to -20°C.
