Since introducing its Evapcold low-charge ammonia/NH3 (R717) packaged units in 2016, U.S. OEM Evapco has installed 100 of the units across 25 industrial sites, with each site using between one and 10 units, said Kurt Liebendorfer, Vice President of Evapco. In total, these 100 units represent well over 10,000TR (35,168kW) of refrigeration capacity, According to Liebendorfer, the number of its installed ammonia units will double over the next year or two, “without a doubt.” Liebendorfer delivered his remarks during the market trends panel at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) America Summit 2022 on natural

Renewable energy enthusiasts now have reason to celebrate: EVAPCO offers a solar-powered evaporative cooling tower. The SUN cooling tower, available in two sizes — 241 and 383 nominal tons — is paired with PV panels to dramatically reduce energy consumption. The SUN cooling tower is capable of achieving net-zero operation because its 9 or 12 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels power the unit fully at 50% capacity. Its net-zero capability stems from an annual average of energy usage (most of the year, evaporative cooling towers operate at less than 50% of their capability). Read the entire article
