Developed with Carel, Continuous Cooling uses an inverter compressor and advanced controller to achieve high levels of efficiency in Freor’s equipment.
The Japanese manufacturer has entered the light-commercial HVAC market with its new ECOi-W propane heat pump chiller, which will offer capacities of up to 80kW.
Representatives from the scientific community support the wide adoption of hydrocarbons across the spectrum of heat pumps, starting with air-to-water.
Compared to HFC alternatives, reversible propane heat pumps can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to lower GWP, lower refrigerant charge and higher system efficiency.
The manufacturer launched its propane equipment in Europe in 2019 and as of 2020 had transitioned its entire commercial refrigeration portfolio to hydrocarbons.
Freor, Emerson, Novum and Frascold are among the R290-equipment suppliers at the German trade show.
The modular cooling system can also operate as a heat pump to provide heating in the colder months.
The Spanish manufacturer’s Cubigel compressors are used in a range of propane- and isobutane-based commercial refrigeration applications.
The propane-based technologies include a refrigeration unit for light commercial vehicles from pbx and AHT’s waterloop system for commercial display cases.
Swedish Manufacturer Qvantum Raises €42 Million for Accelerated R290 Residential Heat Pump Deployment
The funding will also support the completion of the company’s production facility in Åstorp, Sweden.
