BITZER has delivered the first new condenser produced at its own factory in Germany, following the acquisition of Alfa Laval's shell and tube evaporator and condenser business in 2018.
BITZER acquired the Alfa Laval portfolio of shell and tube evaporators and condensers for air conditioning and refrigeration applications in April last year.
A significant number of European retail professionals who responded to a survey by Emerson said they were unaware of upcoming regulatory changes related to the phase down of HFCs as refrigerants.
The study showed that the retail industry was lagging behind schedule due to a lack of clarity in regulatory changes and replacement technologies available, with 40 per cent of respondents unaware of the changes and nearly half (44 per cent) either yet to make the shift, or unsure. However, 81 per cent of respondents viewed the shift from HFCs to natural refrigerants as a positive change.
