Case study: Heron Foods picks Cubo2 Smart CO2 condensing units
North East refrigeration engineers H.A. Davie have installed four SCM Cubo2 Smart condensing units from Dean & Wood at a new-build Heron Foods store in Stockton-on-Tees.
H. A. Davie, based in Houghton-le-Spring, were approached by Heron Foods to look at alternative, environmentally friendly refrigerants which would offer a more stable price and availability in the future. After some research, CO2 seemed the obvious choice.

Keith Scott, from H.A. Davie, said: ‘We were very impressed by the Cubo2 Smart for its build quality and design and the comprehensive support offered by SCM and Dean & Wood. After completing the training course at Cool Concerns, our engineers found the actual installation of the packaged units very simple and they were fully supported by Dean & Wood representatives during the commissioning process.
“The units we installed are running a 12m run of dairy cabinets, chill room and a freezer room and we have been very impressed by noise levels and running efficiencies.
“We would definitely recommend the Cubo2 Smart packaged condensing units from Dean & Wood for build quality, design, ease of installation, efficiency and sustainability.”
Up to three indoor evaporators can be run on one Cubo2 Smart unit with a combined duty of 8kW. The units are inverter driven and give a 25%-100% capacity modulation. All units are fitted with the Carel HECU Sistema control system.
Adelle Munro, sales engineer for Dean & Wood Newcastle, said “The new build Heron Foods store was an ideal application for the Cubo2 Smart condensing units. We worked closely with H.A. Davie to ensure that their engineers were confident in installing, commissioning and maintaining the new CO2 technology.”
