Swiss firm, Mirai Intex, revealed new heating and cooling systems at Chillventa which use air as the refrigerant. The company showed two products aimed at the heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and refrigeration markets at the show.
Neither of the systems any refrigerants, such as Freons or ammonia; they only use air as the refrigerant. The products use an 'air-cycle' system. And, they use 'super-precision' ball bearings which decrease the friction so much that there is no need for oil to lubricate them. The company says this also means the unit are very low maintenance and cheaper to run.
The MIRAI COLD refrigeration unit has a temperature range of between minus 40 degrees C and minus 80 degrees C. This makes it ideal for cold rooms in the food or biomedical industries.
The control interface is intuitive, and the 'Mirai Climate' control unit is accessible via an iPhone, iPad or Android app.
