Euroklimat manufactured what is believed to be the country’s first such R290 chiller installation.
Italian OEM Euroklimat provided the six R290 chillers, which are used for air-conditioning and cold storage.
The reversible heat pumps provide both space heating and cooling for the warehouse and offices.
The four TAE N Mini chillers offer cooling capacities from 1.7kW (0.48TR) to 4.4kW (1.3TR).
The installation has inverter-driven compressors and two types of heat recovery.
Euroklimat propane chiller serves the 9,000m2 site, which includes both the dairy and offices.
Full production returns as some Italian HVAC&R companies reopen to support essential activities.
Italian contributions to the natural refrigerant industry include Epta’s FTE CO2 system and a strong expertise in R290 plug-in units.
Euroklimat displayed a prototype propane heat pump at Chillventa 2018. Giulia Fava, product developer of Euroklimat, explained that the firm’s new propane heat pump prototype will be ready for the market in 2019.
