The Turboalgor Kits for medium temperature systems (-5°C – +10°C) are already available and the expected results are:
cooling power boosted
Turboalgor technology will soon also be available to work with the higher temperatures usually found in industrial air conditioning (+10°C – +20°C), leading to a reduction in consumption and costs for this sector, too.
Given the growing attention within the refrigeration sector towards the use of natural refrigeration fluids with a lower environmental impact, in particular towards CO2, Turboalgor will develop an innovative device which, inserted inside a CO2 refrigeration system, new or existing, will significantly improve its energy efficiency.
The project is based on a patent filed in Italy by Turboalgor S.r.l and granted on 30/09/2020 with the no. 102018000009843, which involves the insertion of an exchanger that has the role of generating, by recovering heat from the cycle, pressurized fluid to be exploited adequately to pre-compress the refrigerant before sending it into the main compressor. The latter will thus have to do less work to bring the fluid to the conditions required at the input from the gas cooler, consequently absorbing less electricity from the network.
This technology, in the case of evaporation at -20 ° C, which is the minimum value for transcritical CO2 systems, will guarantee: an energy saving of up to 15% for refrigeration systems with a capacity between 10 kW and 100 kW, a cooling capacity increase up to 25% and the payback of the investment within 2 and a half years.
Turboalgor is the company at the head of COLD ENERGY, a project financed by the European Community with the aim of reducing consumption and emissions and improving the efficiency of cooling systems.
Turboalgor contributes to increasing the competitiveness of European companies in the refrigeration industry.
Using cutting-edge technology, Turboalgor is able to cut carbon emissions, in line with EU directives.
With its three application solutions, Turboalgor can intervene on both new and existing systems.
