As the applications for CO₂ refrigeration systems expand, there is a need to increase competencies around its use in the industry. To help address this growing need, Danfoss (Denmark) has developed the Mobile CO 2 Training Unit. The Danfoss Mobile Training Unit is packed with CO₂ solutions and interactive learning modules. The unit had travelled around the world and it has now arrived in Malaysia to support their community in ASEAN region.
CO₂ is rapidly advancing in refrigeration as traditional hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are phasing out globally, and retailers are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. The CO2 Mobile Training Unit addresses a critical industry need for training on the emerging technologies in natural refrigerants, which are both a sustainable and economical choice for refrigeration systems.
Danfoss’ CO2 Mobile Training Unit was displayed at the Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysia France Institute (UniKL MFI), Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor from 4-15 December 2017. Danfoss held “open house” sessions to observe the training unit’s equipment and components for CO₂ solutions as well as hands-on training sessions led by dedicated Danfoss CO₂ champions who shared their in-depth knowledge of the natural refrigerant’s properties and the opportunities and challenges surrounding the use of CO₂.
The training unit introduces the AHR Expo Innovation Award winning ejector technology, which industry experts recognize as key to 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.
As technologies for implementing CO₂ refrigeration continue to evolve to offer enhanced performance while increasing the ease of use, the Danfoss Mobile Training Unit will constantly be updated with new components, know-how, and learning modules to reflect these changes.
Danfoss’ technology products and services are used in areas such as refrigeration, air conditioning, heating, motor control, and mobile machinery. The company is also active in the field of renewable energy as well as district heating infrastructure for cities and urban communities.
