CO2 Refrigeration Technology

When deciding on which refrigerant type you should purchase for your data center, supermarket, distribution center, or manufacturing facility, you must consider multiple variables and pay close attention to the total cost of ownership, not just the simple payback analysis.  Efficiency, energy costs, environmental impact, lifespan, footprint, refrigerant costs, and maintenance costs are just some of the factors that need to be analyzed.  When evaluating systems from a wholistic point of view, CO2 is the clear choice for the future and is rapidly gaining appeal and market share in the U.S. market.  The fact is that CO2 is 100% natural, safe, and inexpensive and 12x more economical than major HFC (Hydrofluorocarbons) synthetic refrigerants on the market today. Its effect on the climate is 1,500-4,000x less than that of synthetic refrigerants.  At ripKurrent, we feel that it’s important to provide clients with a real understanding of the whole picture, not just the lowest cost on the front end, when considering a next refrigeration system.  We will assist in the evaluation and financial analysis of this expenditure and show you the lifelong benefit of switching to CO2 today.
