Hydrocarbons in commercial refrigeration

This paper explains why hydrocarbon refrigerant was selected for Waitrose’s new stores and major re fits in 2011, and will show the new concept for store refrigeration and its integration with building services. The significant carbon and cost savings achieved through almost total leakage elimination and improved store energy efficiency will be quantified. The paper also explains how HC refrigerant has been safely applied in equipment ranging from display cabinets to chillers, and the procedures which have been developed so engineers can work safely on HC systems on a shop floor.
