BITZER UK has supplied its 300th carbon dioxide-based refrigeration compressor for installation in Aldi UK’s stores.
The milestone was reached following a delivery of the manufacturer’s proven semi-hermetic CO2 units to Aldi's refrigeration pack builder, Clade Engineering Services, which works closely with installation sister company A1 Engineering Services on the retailer’s refrigeration systems.
Aldi committed to installing natural refrigerants across all of its stores more than a year ago and CO2 has a GWP of just one.
Carter Synergy has revealed details of what it believes was the world-first installation of a newly developed multi rotary compressor pack using CO2 at a trading store.
The pack at a Tesco Express store in Shaw, near Oldham, combines rotary compressors with Green & Cool’s control software to ensure reliability and efficiency.
