Comparing HFO-based systems to ammonia for process cooling

The R1234ze HFO is an ultra-low, near zero GWP fluid with a GWP of less than 1, which means it has a lower impact on global warming than CO2. Ammonia has a GWP of 0, which makes the two fluids very comparable from this perspective. What stands out for the R1234ze is that it enables customers to reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing performance. Moreover, chillers with R1234ze refrigerant can outperform ammonia by 25 per cent according to the energy efficiency ratio (EER) analysis.

Energy Savings from Energy Efficiency

With the series Níkē, air-cooled liquid coolers with low global warming potential (GWP) and refrigerant HFO R1234ze, Tecnofreddo continues to expand its design and offer the perfect combination of efficiency and environmental sustainability.

The series Níkē with screw compressors, inverters and floating condensation represents an additional proof of Tecnofreddo R&D team commitment in developing cutting-edge solutions in terms of operational efficiency and sustainable performance for each industrial application.

Níkē meets the requirements of European legislation for seasonal efficiency and eco-design, resulting in a current, valuable and effective choice in terms of investment and operating cost.

The more efficient your system is, the lower your energy BILL WILL BE!

Níkē series includes also air-cooled water coolers in special execution for the direct production of icy water. These chillers are designed for the direct cooling of pure water at a temperature of +1 °C. The peculiarity of these units foresees its use in those applications where it is necessary to have pure water close to the freezing temperature. Níkē chillers fully replace the classic “ice bank” which involved an accumulation of ice (in storage tanks). Níkē series with HFO is a safe and sustainable choice for the future.
