Modern industrial production, storage and distribution […]
Modern industrial production, storage and distribution would be impossible without extensive use of refrigeration. Ammonia (NH3) has long been the prevalent refrigerant in industrial refrigeration due to its high degree of efficiency, low environmental impact and affordability.
Ammonia is commonly used in food processing facilities, dairies, breweries, meat processing plants and cold storage warehouses, where a large cooling demand is required.
Ammonia is a cost-effective and efficient refrigerant. The only drawback is its classification as a poisonous refrigerant that in case of leakage can be harmful to personnel and the food items that the refrigeration system was designed to protect.
The risk of leaks arises from many different sources, ranging from inadequate operating procedures or lack of training to failures in piping, welds or poor maintenance.
Due to its classification as a poisonous gas, design, construction and operation of ammonia refrigeration systems are governed by strict standards. Early-warning detection devices, efficient ventilation systems, emergency switch-off systems are among the typical measures implemented to limit the risk during operation.
Industrial refrigeration systems from ZHAOXUE can meet exceptional demands that you can rely on for critical processes. Our innovative fluorine refrigeration equipment and gas compression technology does this by keeping food and beverage processing safely chilled, natural gas moving through pipelines and industrial process equipment working smoothly.
To protect the ozone layer and minimize global warming, engineers and designers are again touting the praises of natural refrigerants--carbon dioxide, ammonia, and even air and water. The return to these natural refrigerants protects the ozone layer, and because they have a higher efficiency, it helps to decrease the greenhouse effect of fossil fuels used in energy production. This also helps to preserve the energy reserves of planet Earth for future generations.
This is making refrigeration equipment that is earth-friendly in emissions and energy consumption, as well as co-generation applications to provide additional energy and refrigerated storage facilities with a low initial cost and technological match with the location's infrastructure.
