As the applications for CO2 refrigeration systems expand, there is a need to increase competences around its use in the industry. To help address this growing need, Danfoss has developed the Mobile CO 2 Training Unit. The Danfoss Mobile Training Unit is packed with CO2 solutions and interactive learning modules, and will be making stops in the Pacific and Mountain regions as it travels the U.S. to support the industry.
CO2 is advancing in refrigeration as traditional HFCs are phasing out globally and retailers are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. The Danfoss CO2 Mobile Training Unit addresses an industry need for training on the emerging technologies in natural refrigerants, which are both a sustainable and economical choice for refrigeration systems.
Danfoss’ CO2 Mobile Training Unit will be on display at the ATMOsphere America Conference in San Diego, Calif., June 5-7; at Source Refrigeration & HVAC Training Center in Anaheim, Calif., June 14-29; and at DC Engineering in Meridian, Idaho, July 10-20. Danfoss will hold open house sessions to observe the training unit’s equipment and components for CO2 solutions, as well as hands-on training sessions led by dedicated Danfoss CO2 champions who will share their knowledge of the natural refrigerant’s properties and the opportunities and challenges surrounding the use of CO2.
“The technology for CO2 is available today, although it continues to evolve,” says Jeff Staub, Danfoss’ director of regional applications – Americas. “Part of our mission with the CO2 Mobile Training Unit is to provide system builders, as well as contractors, service technicians, installers, and technical departments with the necessary knowledge about CO2 that will enable them to take advantage of the potential of this natural refrigerant.”
The CO2 solutions presented in the mobile training unit range from gas-bypass systems to parallel compression solutions with or without heat reclaim. Moreover, the training unit introduces the AHR Expo Innovation Award winning ejector technology, which industry experts recognize in the evolution of transcritical CO2 refrigeration. These ejectors have the potential to enhance the energy efficiency of their systems by up to 20 percent on the hottest days of the year, thereby solving a problem that previously limited the use of transcritical CO2 systems to milder climates.
As technologies for implementing C2 refrigeration continue to evolve to offer enhanced performance while increasing the ease of use, the Danfoss Mobile Training Unit will be updated with new components, know-how, and learning modules to reflect these changes. As it travels, be sure to visit us and take advantage of this industry opportunity.
