Protect Against Heat Waves
Learn how to safeguard refrigeration against rising temperatures and reduce energy costs
Climate change is causing more frequent and intense heat waves around the world, even in regions that normally experience mild summers. Refrigeration systems are highly vulnerable to overwork and fail during extreme heat, increasing the risk of food spoilage and store closures.
Join our webinar, “Climate-Proof Refrigeration: Navigating Heatwaves & Natural Refrigerant Regulations,” to learn about transitioning to natural refrigerants in the United States, navigating incoming regulations, market drivers, and retailer trends. Discover ways to optimize your system transition, harnessing pressure exchanger technology for energy savings and improved heat wave readiness.
How PX G1300™ Protects Against Heat Waves
The PX G1300 increases cooling capacity and reduces energy consumption of CO2 refrigeration systems. For instance, when installed in an average US supermarket’s existing system, the PX G1300 can allow for an increase of up to 11°F (6°C) degrees above the maximum design temperature*. Simply put, with the PX G1300, 111°F (44°C) will feel like 100°F (38°C) to your CO2 refrigeration system.
Other solutions to increase system capacity, such as purchasing additional compressors, are often only used a few days a year during heat waves. The PX G1300 works year-round to maximize energy efficiency by capturing and recirculating pressure energy within the system, reducing energy consumption and emissions and lowering your operating costs year round. These benefits actually increase at higher temperatures: on high heat days (104°F/40°C), the PX G1300 has been shown to reduce energy consumption by an average of 28.5%*.

*Estimated increase in design temperature assumes comparison to a CO2 system with high pressure value with a 120 KW MT, 30 KW LT system and 100° F / 37.7°C gas cooler exit temperature. Results may vary from site to site, as design maximum is site-dependent.
