Cofely offers containerised R1234ze chiller
Introduced towards the end of 2014, the R1234ze Quantum G chiller now offers a space-saving, pre-assembled cooling system.
The container solutions from Cofely Refrigeration are based on a modular principle: the container systems are pre-mounted on a base frame so that they can be quickly adjusted to the conditions on site. Pre-wired and piped, they can also be easily relocated if required. The container can also be implemented as a machine room to provide the integrated chiller components with effective protection against the elements.
Cofely is one of a number of major chiller manufacturers now providing chillers operating on the new low GWP refrigerant. R1234ze has a GWP of less than 1 and is consequently not subject to a leak test as per the F-gas regulations.
