Low Charge Ammonia Refrigeration as an Alternative Technology

The world has been so keen on issues to do with global warming as well as any other environmental issue that puts the living things or non-living things to the danger of diminishing or even becoming extinct. While this has been the case, industries, and organizations across the world have been on the move to meet the international standards regarding measures put in place to reduce emissions among other environmental degraders. To ensure that eco-friendly production is assured, policies have been put in place as a blueprint which should be followed by the respective industries. The issue of energy consumption in the production process has also been among the issues that have been in the limelight in most of these conferences. The refrigeration industry is among the industries that have been kept on toes by these changes and hence forced to ensure better and more efficient methods of refrigeration.

Most of the refrigeration systems especially on large scale basis have been the ammonia refrigeration systems. They have been used regardless of the gas being poisonous due to the fact that in case ammonia gas leaks, it is easily detectable due to its smell. Among other reasons, it is lighter than air and hence can only rise the moment it leaks making it have less adverse impacts on the individuals living near the refrigeration system.

Ammonia refrigeration technology has further been improved by the introduction of low charge refrigeration technology. There is need of just a fraction of the refrigerant to achieve the same impact with the traditional refrigeration system. In addition, it is factory assembled a factor that makes it not require an expert the moment it is on the site.

The total cost of installation, transportation as well as operation tend to be less as compared to the traditional refrigeration technology. Low charge refrigeration technology also tend to consume lesser energy hence preserves energy for other uses saving the institution in question money. It is also field tested and hence one does not have to worry that it may break down. Among other things, it is highly on demand a factor that has proved to the manufacturers that various industrial users of low charge refrigerators prefer it and hence recommend it to their other branches as well as to their friends in the same or related industries.

Due to their adjustability, the refrigeration warehousing has benefited from the low charge refrigeration technology as they can now adjust the refrigerator to the required level of operation hence increasing their output quality. The low charge ammonia refrigerators have also been proven to reduce 80% of the ammonia charge when compared to the traditional pump circulation system. It is one of the technologies that have gained merit in relation to health, environment as well as economic friendliness.
