German OEM TEKO Refrigeration has introduced a patent-pending heat exchanger, the TECO2nditioner, which is designed to reduce the suction and discharge temperatures of medium-temperature compressors in its transcritical CO2 booster systems. This in turn lowers and stabilizes oil temperatures, maintaining lubrication and extending the lifetime of the compressors.
The TECO2nditioner, unveiled at the Chillventa trade show in October, was explained by Andreas Meier, Managing Director of TEKO Refrigeration, at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe 2022 conference. Held November 15-16 in Brussels, Belgium, ATMO Europe was organized by ATMOsphere, publisher of R744.com.
The TECO2nditioner has already been implemented in specialty supermarkets. It is being designed for all of TEKO’s transcritical CO2 booster systems except for very large applications.
