Opportunités pour les applications frigorifiques de supermarché fonctionnant au CO2.

Opportunities for CO2 in supermarket refrigeration.

Auteurs : VERHOEF P. J.


This article describes the results of a feasibility study for CO2 applications in supermarket refrigeration: state-of-the-art in Europe; the availability of equipment for CO2 has been investigated; for three categories of supermarkets, small, average and mega, the feasibility of CO2 has been analysed. The study indicates that the necessary equipment is available, however, there is less choice compared to the traditional refrigerants. Especially for the small supermarkets, one compressor often has enough capacity, while two compressors, one for back up, would be preferable to achieve better reliability. It can be concluded that the average contractor does not have the necessary knowledge of CO2. Therefore education will be vital for the future of CO2 technology.
