Incorporating HVAC into a grocery store's CO2 (R744) refrigeration system introduces parallel compression to stabilize medium-temperature (MT) compressor demand during high ambient temperatures. This finding comes from a case study conducted in Montreal by the Canadian-based OEM EVAPCO LMP. The details of the integrated system's installation and operation, which also featured heat and gray water reclaim, were presented at the FMI- The Food Industry Association Energy and Store Development Conference. The presentation was given by Francois Aucoin, Director of Engineering at EVAPCO LMP, and

The need for cooling capacity is increasing globally. An expanding population and an evergrowing dependence on data increases the need for process cooling, centralized space cooling, and data center cooling. Meanwhile, in many places, water scarcity is a massive issue. In conventional, industrial cooling applications, the use of water for heat rejection is critical. Cooling towers and most evaporative fluid coolers depend heavily on water to reject waste heat to the atmosphere. Taking blowdown and drift losses into account, evaporative cooling systems use approximately three GPM per 100 tons

U.S.-based OEM Evapco has installed its first low-charge ammonia (R717) split refrigeration systems at a cold storage facility in Reno, Nevada. The project was completed in partnership with specialist contractor Ti Cold, which views the technology as “revolutionary” for the industry. The new Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center’s five cold rooms and loading dock are cooled by 10 Evapcold LCR-S Split Systems, which provide a total of 676TR (2.4MW) of cooling capacity with just 4,664lbs (2,116kg) of ammonia. Each system consists of a rooftop adiabatic air-cooled condensing unit and two ceiling-mounted

Data centers rely heavily on the capability and optimal performance of heat rejection equipment being utilized to function efficiently. When conserving water is a primary goal, careful attention must be given to the heat rejection equipment being specified. Data center cooling applications can be served by either an open-loop cooling tower or a closed-circuit cooler. The requirements of the application, location of the facility, local utility costs, water availability, and environmental considerations are the primary factors when choosing between the two.
