Every breath exhaled by an average person contains 3-4% CO2. Ours probably contains more because we live and breathe to use CO2 in the world’s best, sustainable CO2 refrigeration systems.
As a market-leading OEM manufacturer, Advansor has been building more than 4,500 CO2 systems for supermarkets and industrial customers around the world since 2006.
We decided to use CO2 in refrigeration systems and to combat global warming. We have made our vision a reality: We design and produce the world’s best sustainable CO2 refrigeration systems.
CO2 is often associated with global warming. However, we don’t lose our cool. Literally. Because CO2 is the most climate-friendly refrigerant:
- IT’S NON-TOXIC
- IT DOESN’T AFFECT THE OZONE LAYER
- IT DOES NOT CONTRIBUTE TO GLOBAL WARMING
- IT’S VERY ENERGY-EFFICIENT
We have paved the way for the commercial distribution of CO2 refrigeration systems, and we are proud to deliver sustainable systems with advanced technology at competitive prices. Our driving forces are technology, knowledge, the climate and a desire to win – both as a team and in close, candid partnership with our customers and suppliers.
THAT’S WHY WE ARE ’COOL WITH CO2’
Spanish version – Cada espiración de una persona normal contiene un 3-4 % de CO2. Las nuestras seguramente contengan más, porque vivimos (nos dejamos el aliento en ello) solo para usar CO2 en los mejores sistemas de refrigeración con CO2 sostenibles del mundo.
Decidimos usar CO2 en los sistemas de refrigeración y luchar contra el calentamiento global. Hemos hecho realidad ese objetivo: diseñamos y producimos los mejores sistemas de refrigeración con CO2 sostenibles del mundo. Somos fabricantes de equipos originales líderes en el mercado y llevamos construidos más de 6500 sistemas con CO2 para supermercados y clientes industriales de todo el mundo desde 2006.
El CO2 suele asociarse al calentamiento global. No obstante, nosotros mantenemos la cabeza fría. En sentido literal. Porque el CO2 es el refrigerante más respetuoso con el medioambiente:
- No es tóxico.
- No afecta a la capa de ozono.
- No contribuye al calentamiento global.
- Es eficiente desde el punto de vista energético.
De ahí nuestra afirmación: “We’re cool with CO2” (“Tenemos buen clima con el CO2”).
Fabricamos nuestros propios sistemas en Dinamarca y Polonia.
Contamos con una proyección internacional que nos permite prestar servicio a los clientes en más de 30 países. Nuestra sede central está ubicada en la agrupación industrial de refrigerantes naturales de Brabrand (Dinamarca), cerca de la ciudad de Aarhus.

The K65 tube system has been developed in response to the use of R744 as an environmentally friendly refrigerant e.g. for supermarket refrigeration systems. K65 simplifies the selection process, as the Wieland K65 alloy provides an enhanced mechanical strength high enough to withstand the huge pressure ratings required. K65 has excellent processing properties that are similar to those of copper. Wieland K65 tubes can easily be brazed to Conex Baenninger K65 fittings. This K65 system is covered by a joint system guarantee that includes CO2 applications. Having such a high mechanical strength, the K65 tube can be made with comparatively thin walls allowing for an economical utilization of material, while still meeting high technical demands. The thinner walls of the tubes not only saves on material, but results in a lighter weight product that is easier to handle, for example, when mounting the pipes on ceilings.
