Multi-ejector concept for R-744 supermarket refrigeration.


Type of article: Article, IJR article


Supermarkets are commercial buildings with major energy consumption and relatively large contribution to direct emissions of greenhouse gases through refrigerant emissions of the refrigeration and air condition system. The majority of the European systems are applying HFC404A as working fluid. Average annual leakage rates in Europe are in the range of 15–20% of the total charge. Worldwide the figure is about 30% and HCFC22 being the main refrigerant in use. Systems applying R744 as the only refrigerant have been developed and more than 2000 supermarkets exists in Europe, mainly in northern and mid-European countries. However, the systems still have large potential in development with respect to energy efficiency, heat recovery and cost efficiency. In this paper efficiencies and capacities for an R744 supermarket system layout with ejectors and heat recovery have been compared for different climate conditions. First results show relevant improvements in system efficiency of up to 30%.
