Mayekawa’s ammonia/CO2 cascade installation in Isidro Casanova Partido de la Matanza in Buenos Aires province is the first of its kind in the South American country and the second in Latin America.
The first installation in Latin America, according to Mayekawa Argentina’s Ivan Fraccarolli, from the department of projects, was in Ecuador in an 1800m2 ice cream facility. This installation was required to cool two cold rooms in the facility.
