Danfoss is accepting entries for its ninth annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition. Launched in 2010, the competition recognizes North American original equipment manufacturers, building owners, municipalities, contractors and end users that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility or invested in a building or system upgrade in the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy and environmental savings.
Interested participants may enter the competition by submitting an application by June 1. Applications will be reviewed and selected by a panel of third-party judges representing various disciplines.
Last year, Danfoss presented the EnVisioneer of the Year award to Welbilt’s brand Delfield. Delfield used Danfoss thermostatic expansion valves and electronic controls to optimize its foods service refrigeration equipment. By integrating these Danfoss technologies that enable more precise control and are approved for use with flammable refrigerants, Delfield recently converted its portfolio from R-404A, an HFC refrigerant, to R-290, a natural hydrocarbon — reducing global warming potential by more than 99 percent, from 3,943 to 3. It also was able to lower refrigerant charge by 40-80 percent to reduce equipment footprint, and cut energy consumption by as much as 50 percent.
