Carter Thermal Industries (CTI) will make its debut at the Temperature Controlled Storage and Distribution Show in Peterborough on June 25-26.
As well as sponsoring the inaugural World Refrigeration Day, which takes place on the second day of the show, the company says it will be showcasing the expertise of its divisional companies with the main focus on the part it plays in environmental technology and solutions, particularly with regard to natural refrigerant solutions with low global warming potential such as hydrocarbon and CO2-based systems.
The companies coming together on the CTI stand are Carter Retail Equipment and Carter Synergy. Carter Retail Equipment specialises in refrigerated retail display cabinets and cold stores, from their design and specification to manufacturing and installation. Here the division gets involved in retail environment and back storage areas; fruit and veg bulk wholesalers’ storage; ripening rooms; and pharmaceuticals.
The Carter Synergy with KB Refrigeration divisions together cover design, consultancy, installation, service and maintenance for refrigeration, heating, ventilation, mechanical and electrical disciplines across England and Scotland.
Within the wider refrigeration business there has been a significant focus on the use of natural refrigerants, with Carter Retail now supplying almost 90% of their cabinets as low charge, hydrocarbon based integral systems with integrated heat exchangers which allow the cabinets to be coupled to closed loop Glycol or water systems. This offers benefits including heat recovery options and significant energy saving benefits.
Carter Synergy was an early adopter of CO2-based refrigeration systems with several hundred large-scale installations now in place, many of which utilise heat recovery thereby providing the customer with options to re-use rejected heat within their stores for hot water or customer comfort applications.
Much of CTI's success has been achieved within the retail sector, with the organisation working with the majority of the UK’s blue chip retailers. The group also works across commercial and industrial sectors within their core refrigeration business. Beyond the UK, the organisation has achieved considerable success in the Australian and American markets with its range of refrigerated display cabinets and separately has extensive experience in the installation of its Franklin Hodge products around the world.
