Space-saving CO2 system is convenient answer
The compact ECO2 Booster Integrated Solution (BIS) is described as a 3-in-1 natural refrigeration system.
It makes use of advanced technology to recover waste heat, turning it into space heating and using booster technology to provide space cooling at the most efficient conditions utilising parallel compressor technology. With no need for separate heat pumps, retail store space is maximised.
This system is the first of its kind, and its capabilities are already said to be making waves with some of the UK’s biggest supermarket chains.
Space Engineering says that the system’s heat recovery capabilities, combined with the efficiency-boosting thermodynamic properties of CO2, means that energy usage in stores could be reduced by as much as 30% compared to a store with HFC pack and separate heat pumps.
The dual-temperature system is based on Space Engineering’s established ECO2 Mini Internal system, but the ECO2 BIS goes one step further with its integrated heating and cooling capabilities, whilst still allowing the store to stay in control with refrigeration priority settings.
Tony Mills, Space Engineering Services’ plant manufacturing director, said: “We are really excited about the ECO2 BIS development and see it as a major advancement in the convenience market. The use of direct CO2 space heating is a first for this type of unit, and coupled with high efficient space cooling and refrigeration cooling in one package, it makes the ECO2 BIS an attractive proposition for any customer looking for an efficient and natural solution.”
