A-Gas adds ammonia to refrigerant offering
Already stocking CO2 and the hydrocarbons propane and propylene, the addition of ammonia is said to reflect a demand for greener and more efficient alternatives to high GWP refrigerants, particularly in the light of the European F-gas phase-down.
“Ammonia has been added to further develop our one-stop shop offering,” said A-Gas managing director John Ormerod.
Used in many food processing, brewery and cold store applications, its acceptability has increased with improvements in technology enabling much lower charges.
“This new-found versatility has won ammonia many new admirers,” John Ormerod observed. “New technology and greater efficiencies have broadened the number of applications where it can be employed to such an extent that supermarkets have also warmed to its potential.”
