PX G1300® Pressure Exchanger for Commercial Refrigeration
CO2 refrigerant is a climate-friendly alternative to greenhouse gas-emitting hydrofluorocarbons and has been the natural refrigerant of choice for decades in Europe and Japan. CO2 refrigeration systems are safe, sustainable, and commercially available, but they can also consume significant amounts of electricity in warm environments, making them expensive to operate.
At a European supermarket, installing the PX G1300 led to efficiency improvements of over 30% at temperatures above 40°C (104°F), compared to a standard CO2 booster system.
Driving Energy Savings Above Existing Technologies
In Vallarta Supermarkets, using the PX G1300 eliminated the intermittent onset of the system’s third compressor, reducing peak power consumption by roughly 30% and cutting average energy consumption by approximately 14%. These savings were all achieved on top of the system’s adiabatic cooler.
Beyond energy and cost savings, switching to CO2 refrigeration systems equipped with the PX G1300 can markedly reduce emissions.
In the United States, Energy Recovery estimates that for every 1,000 supermarkets, the PX G1300 can save approximately 67GWh of electricity, lower electricity costs by about $10 million, and reduce CO2 emissions by around 16,000 metric tons, equivalent to taking roughly 3,400 passenger vehicles off US roads.1
In Europe, Energy Recovery estimates that for every 1,000 supermarkets, the PX G1300 can save approximately 43GWh of electricity, lower electricity costs by about €6.6 million, and reduce CO2 emissions by around 9,600 metric tons, equivalent to taking roughly 6,000 passenger vehicles off European roads.1
PX G1300 for Industrial Refrigeration
The PX G1300 is the simple choice for industrial refrigeration operators looking to improve energy efficiency. Its modular and flexible design means it can integrate into new or existing systems, and multiple PX G1300s can work in tandem to meet the load requirements of industrial refrigeration operators.
