Ammonia Refrigeration Basics

Ammonia has been established as the refrigerant of choice in the food preservation business due to its unmatched thermodynamic properties. The growing concern for environmental impact and F-gas regulation has pushed refrigeration technicians towards natural alternatives like ammonia and carbon dioxide refrigerants.

How does an Ammonia Refrigeration System work?

The typical industrial refrigeration system is a vapor-compression refrigerator. A refrigerant is charged with the responsibility of moving heat energy from one place to another. The refrigerant is a vapor most of the time but is periodically compressed to become a liquid, then allowed to expand back into vapor. The compression/expansion process lowers and raises the temperature of the refrigerant.

Coordinate this process perfectly in a controlled system and you master temperature. It’s what we’re all about.

The physical properties of the refrigerant determine the temperature ranges and pressures in the system. Ammonia’s unique properties make it an ideal refrigerant for large industrial refrigeration systems.Ammonia Refrigeration System contractors and installers
