Hillphoenix has announced the addition of NXTCOLD ultra-low charge ammonia systems to its industrial refrigeration portfolio providing a unique extension to its industry-leading natural refrigerant product offerings.
NXTCOLD combines the benefits of ammonia with a revolutionary technology that reduces the size of the refrigerant charge and is ideal for cooler, freezer and blast freezer applications.
"With our manufacturing capabilities and our core competencies focused in the arena of natural refrigerants, this system gives us the ability to add ammonia to our portfolio and deliver more options to our customers and the marketplace,"
Hillphoenix industrial refrigeration vice president, David Neu, said.
NXTCOLD's ultra-low ammonia charge of 6 to 8 oz. per tonne is the lowest charge ammonia refrigeration solution available for large refrigeration facilities. As a result, it is not subject to the same extensive regulatory mandates as large ammonia charge systems.
The company's senior vice president for product strategy and innovation, Eduardo Navarro de Andrade, said the units are delivered preassembled after undergoing rigorous quality control inspections at Hillphoenix.
He said this attention to every detail results in less complicated installation and startup than traditional industrial systems.
"The addition of NXTCOLD to our industrial refrigeration product offering is another example of our deep commitment to delivering natural refrigerant system alternatives that help our customers achieve their goals," he said.
"It's imperative that we continue to look ahead and carry through on our commitments to deliver technologies that help shape the landscape of the future."
