How it works

How it works

A revolution derived from the automotive industry, applied to the industrial refrigeration industry.

Turboalgor uses highly efficient technology from the car industry: a turbo compressor, together with heat exchangers to recover the energy. TurboAlgor’s technological innovation is a radical change compared to any other energy-saving solution in existence. It can also be used in the presence of energy-saving technology currently available in the refrigerating industry, such as INVERTERS and/or ECONOMISERS.

The refrigerant used in a conventional vapour-compression refrigerating system has an important point of inefficiency, the expansion valve. This takes to refrigerant from high to low pressure, dissipating energy. By inserting a turbocompressor and two heat exchangers (of which one is an economiser), it is possible to recover a part of this energy as well as to increase the cooling power of the system.
