Advansor, the Danish manufacturer of transcritical CO2 refrigeration systems, has dedicated a team to the industrial sector that is separate from its traditional commercial refrigeration team, said Mark Kristensen, industrial sales manager.
Most of Advansor’s industrial transcritical systems operate in cold storage facilities. But blast freezing for food processers is a growing area “because we run down to -48°C,” said Kristensen. “And you don’t need a more complex cascade system; it’s purely CO2.”
Advansor’s industrial transcritical system, called the compINDUSTRI, offers more capacity and a larger frame than its compSUPER commercial systems. Kristensen said their capacity is large enough to compete with ammonia systems. The company’s industrial equipment was on display at the Chillventa trade show in October along with commercial systems.
