More than 150 stores across Europe, the Middle East and Australia have now installed Epta’s Extreme Temperature Efficiency (ETE) technology, according to David Wirth, Product Manager of Power Packs at the Italian OEM.
With ETE, which was launched at EuroShop in 2020, Epta has integrated a subcooling unit into its transcritical CO2 (R744) systems to help boost efficient operation in high ambient temperatures. The subcooling unit consists of a dedicated compressor that is only turned on once a certain ambient temperature is reached.
Wirth shared details of Epta’s ETE installations during his presentation in a refrigeration session at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe Summit on natural refrigerants. The conference took place November 15–16 in Brussels and was organized by ATMOsphere, publisher of R744.com.
