Danfoss Launches Mobile Training Unit for CO2 Applications

3d rendering of a shipping containerAs applications for CO2 refrigeration systems expand, there is a need to increase competencies around its use in the industry. To address this growing concern, Danfoss introduced the mobile training unit equipped with CO2 solutions and interactive learning modules for use across the globe to support Danfoss’ worldwide community..

CO2 is rapidly advancing in food retail refrigeration as traditional hydrofluorocarbons are phased out and retailers are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Technology and components for CO2 refrigeration are available today, but many system builders, refrigeration contractors, service technicians, installers and technical departments of food retailers need to learn how to harvest the full potential of CO2₂ systems.

The CO2 solutions presented in the mobile training unit range from simple gas-bypass systems to more complex parallel compression solutions with or without heat reclaim. Moreover, the training unit introduces Danfoss’ brand new ejector technology, which industry experts recognize as key in the evolution of transcritical CO₂ refrigeration. These ejectors have the potential to enhance the energy efficiency of their systems by up to 20 percent on the hottest days of the year, thereby solving a problem that previously limited the use of transcritical CO2 systems to milder climates.

Technologies for CO2 refrigeration are still evolving to offer enhanced performance while increasing ease of use. As it travels to new locations, the mobile training unit will be constantly updated with new components, information and learning modules to reflect these changes.

The first stop of the mobile training unit is Danfoss’ North America headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, on Jan. 10. Danfoss will launch several training containers to serve key markets in North America, Europe and Asia. The training unit can accommodate up to 12 people at a time.
