Cascade CO2/NH3 Refrigeration

A Sustainable Refrigerating System

Food processors and distributors are under constant pressure to produce more while spending less on operations. For plant owners looking for greener and more efficient secondary refrigerants, a carbon dioxide (CO2)/ammonia (NH3) cascade system is a viable option. In addition to providing 0 ozone depletion potential (ODP) and 1 global warming potential (GWP), CO2/NH3 cascade systems offer several benefits for food processing and low-temp distribution facilities including:

-Lower operating costs

-Ammonia charge reduction

-Constant positive pressure

Quality and throughput improvements

Frozen foods processors often seek lower process freezing temperatures to enable faster freezing, which optimizes food quality and enables increased throughput. With CO2/NH3 cascade systems, lower temperatures (and higher production yields) are achievable with less investment and less operating costs than conventional refrigeration systems.
