This was one of the key messages delivered to approximately 40 customers, contractors, distributors and trade media during the introduction of the CO<sub>2</sub> Mobile Training Unit in North America, on January 10 at Danfoss’ NAM headquarters in Baltimore, MD.

“CO<sub>2</sub> is continuing to gain traction in commercial refrigeration as food retailers look for ways to comply with legislation that phases out higher-GWP refrigerants,” explained Peter Dee, food retail sales and services director. “Danfoss has already been involved in more than 10,000 installations of CO<sub>2</sub>refrigeration systems worldwide.”
During the event, Jeff Staub, director of regional applications—Americas, gave participants a summary of the key capabilities of the mobile training unit, and also highlighted some of the latest Danfoss products for CO<sub>2</sub> food retail refrigeration systems, including ADAP-KOOL store managers and case controllers as well as the new CTM Multi-Ejector.
Danfoss CTM Multi-Ejectors are the latest Danfoss innovation for CO<sub>2</sub> refrigeration and recently won a prestigious AHR Expo Innovation Award. The ejectors remove the climate barriers for energy-efficient transcritical CO<sub>2</sub> operation, enabling energy savings of 20 percent or more even in warm climates.
“The technology for CO<sub>2</sub> is available today, although it continues to evolve,” Staub said. “Part of our mission with the CO<sub>2</sub> Mobile Training Unit is to provide retailers as well as contractors and service technicians with the necessary knowledge about CO<sub>2</sub> that will enable them to take advantage of the full potential of this natural refrigerant.”
The CO<sub>2</sub> Mobile Training Unit addresses a critical industry need for training on the emerging technologies in natural refrigerants, which are both a sustainable and economical choice for refrigeration systems.
