ATMO Europe – Romanian Cold Storage Facility Reduces Energy Consumption with Vapor Quality Control

Danish sensor manufacturer HB Products lowered the energy consumption of a Romanian cold storage facility’s DX (direct expansion) ammonia/NH3 (R717) system by 43% after switching it from superheat control to vapor quality control.

Although vapor quality control has been tested in Australia and the U.S. with favorable results, the Romanian installation is said to be the first of its kind in Europe.

This project was presented by Henrik Kudsk, HB Products’s Product Manager, and Adrian Balaoi, CTO of contractor AB Tehnic, during Part 2 of ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe Summit 2022’s Refrigeration Case Studies session.
