Danfoss recently introduced its new Multi Ejector Solution™, which the company says will help CO2 become a major asset for the cooling industry. As a refrigerant, CO2 has the lowest possible Global Warming Potential (GWP) with a rating of “1,” causes zero ozone depletion, and is non-toxic and non-flammable. This means that both buildings and products can be cooled safely without negatively affecting climate. It is also versatile and can be used in many different cooling applications, including commercial, industrial, and transport applications.
According to the company, when paired with the technology in the Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution, CO2 refrigeration systems can outperform traditional HFC systems in terms of energy efficiency in all climate zones, while reducing the environmental impact.
The use of CO2 as a refrigerant was previously limited to cooler regions, or required the use of complex, expensive systems. With the Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution, CO2 can now become a global solution. Now even the world’s hottest regions — like the Middle East, South and Latin America, Australia, and Asia — can see the benefits that CO2 offers. This includes energy saving potential — up to 18% annually compared with CO2 booster system.
