The Highest Quality of Industrial Refrigeration
Equipment in the Market
The traditional refrigeration and air conditioning techniques are quickly changing to respond to an always increasing responsibility of the industry towards the environment. As consequence, as an alternative to synthetic refrigerants, the market shows a growing tendency to use natural refrigerants in several applications. Hydrocarbons represent a very well known and tested natural refrigerant solution, they don’t have harmful effects on the ozone layer (ODP=0) and have an extremely low effect on global warming (GWP). Furthermore, compared with other natural alternatives like CO2 and NH3, they are extremely competitive in terms of initial investment. These refrigerants work at pressure levels very similar to R22 and show a very similar refrigeration capacity. Hydrocarbons don’t have any corrosive effect on copper and can be easily used with semi-hermetic compressors with enclosed electric motor.
Based on its traditional semi-hermetic compressors, Frascold has developed a new product line, whose technology is identified by the initials AXH. These compressors are suitable to be used with all the most commonly used hydrocarbons (propane R290, propylene R1270, isobutane R600a) and have been technically modified to guarantee the safety standard requested for the flammability of hydrocarbons.
