Enrad, a Swedish manufacturer of propane (R290)-based liquid chillers and heat pumps, has joined some of the world’s leading producers of hydrocarbon-based refrigeration equipment as a bronze partner on Hydrocarbons21.com.

With a belief that natural refrigerants will be the “only option” in the future, Enrad has been working exclusively with propane since 2008.

The company is committed to manufacturing refrigeration and heat pump units that are eco-friendly, easy to install, energy efficient and safe.

“The most important thing you can do when it comes to cooling and heating applications is to choose natural refrigerants over the existing f-gases that are now being phased out,” said Andreas Bäckäng, CEO of Enrad. “We must [also] deliver machines [that] are so efficient that we need to put as little electricity in and get as much cooling and heat out as possible.”

Enrad’s eco-friendly chillers

Enrad’s Compact Chiller can be used as both a liquid cooler unit or a heat pump, offering temperatures from -8°C (17.6°F) to 60°C (140°F). It has a cooling capacity from 25kW (7.1TR) to 60kW (17.1TR) and comes in three different sizes.

The manufacturer also offers modular cooling and heat pump units that can be scaled up to create a complete cooling and heat pump system that provides temperatures from -8°C to 60°C. The system can deliver up to 125kW (35.5TR) in cooling output and up to 135kW (38.4TR) in heating output.

According to Enrad, all of its products meet the EU’s ECO design and ERP 2021 energy-efficiency standards.

To reduce the climate footprint of its products even further, Enrad works to keep the production of its cooling and heat pump units as local as possible.

“We are a company that produces a product that is made completely in Sweden,” noted Bäckäng. “Our aim is to involved as many local companies as possible.”

Free NatRef training

Enrad also offers free online training courses for industry professionals wishing to learn more about natural refrigerants and design for the installation of heating and cooling plants.

“We seek to help heating and cooling professionals gain a better understanding of the regulations that apply when designing and installing heating and cooling plants that use natural refrigerants,” explained the company.

The courses cover a variety of topics including the Swedish EN378 cooling standard and other regulations, the importance of cooling and heating systems for environmental management and how to future-proof HVAC&R systems with natural refrigerants.
