Marstair has launched its A2LsysteMatch solution for cold room applications, which it says is engineered to deliver a 93% reduction in system refrigerant GWP.
Following recent investment in newly built R&D testing facilities at Marstair’s UK manufacturing plant, eight months of comprehensive testing have been completed, ensuring A2LsysteMatch has been developed in accordance with BS EN 378: 2016 standards.
As a result, a range of condensing units and cold room evaporators are available, which can be mix-matched to suit specific room temperature requirements, with duty range of 1-6kW. Systems are also suitable for a variety of A2L refrigerants, including R454A, R454C and R455A.
The refrigerant charge for any system match with a known pipe run can easily be calculated, meaning A2LsysteMatch can easily be selected giving clients complete confidence their selection can be applied safely and in compliance with regulations.
A2LsysteMatch is said to be the only complete system solution on A2L refrigerant for cold rooms. Installed using standard controllers, it is also suitable for applications with up to 80m pipe runs, and with requires no extra safety measures. To support this, Marstair also provides a DSEAR risk assessment template within its instructions giving best practice installation guidance to installers.
Marstair adds that the new systems are also 3% more efficient than its already efficient ECO design certified and ETL listed range of condensing units and come with a 5-year parts warranty as standard.
The manufacturer says A2LsysteMatch provides the solution to accelerate the step-change needed in the cold room sector, allowing a major shift in refrigerant GWP reduction, and that this will also give end user clients seeking greener future-proof alternatives confidence for better total cost of ownership.
