Dioxide: The Next Step for Industrial Refrigeration
Refrigeration has been in the industrial refrigeration
business since 1945. Over the years, we have seen many
refrigerant trends come and go. Freon refrigerants had
their heyday, and are now virtually phased out. Rotary
vane and reciprocating compressors have been replaced
by screw compressors. Electromechanical controls have
been replaced by PLCs and computers. Through all this
change, ammonia has been one thing which has lasted.
It has the virtues of being environmentally friendly,
highly efficient over a wide range of temperatures, and
inexpensive to manufacture. However, anyone who has gotten
a whiff of ammonia knows that in high concentrations
it can pose a serious health risk. It has a distinct,
noxious odor that can permanently damage food products,
and can ignite if in sufficiently high concentrations.
Those are the reasons that for the past 60 years, we
have worked hard to minimize the risks of ammonia, to
assure our customers and the public that a Gartner designed
and installed system adheres to the highest standards
of the industry.
