Type of article: Periodical article


The paper covers cold storage and refrigerated road transport as operated by one organization. The main cold storage facilities use ammonia as the refrigerant. Where R22 is used it is being maintained. R12 is being changed to R134a and R502 to R69L. Insulation for new building is R22 blown. Transport refrigeration was mainly R12 or R502. A gradual change is being made to systems using R22 or R69L. A further improvement is the use of an alternator driven from the vehicle engine to supply an electric drive to the refrigeration unit. This results in a decrease in noise pollution, and energy saving which causes less global warming. The company is very aware of environmental problems. D.W.H.
