R-448A REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS PREFERED TO CO2 FOR AN AMERICAN SUPERMARKET CHAIN

02.04.2017

A R-448A commercial refrigeration system was chosen by an American supermarket chain for one of its new large supermarket.

R-448A has a moderate GWP of 1,386 and is nonflammable. With more that 50 percent of the floor space dedicated to fresh food, the medium temperature system has been shown to deliver as much as 16 percent reduction in energy consumption compared to systems presently in place.

R-448A was selected because of its excellent energy efficiency and its cost effectiveness, compared to a CO2 solution, which would have cost 20 to 30 percent more.
