Temprite Supports Efforts to AdvanceNatural Refrigerants by Joining NASRC

Temprite, which manufactures commercial refrigeration components and offers products for all refrigerants, especially all natural refrigerants, has joined the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) at the silver level. The NASRC is an action-oriented 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to creating a climate-friendly future for refrigeration through natural refrigerants.

The demand for natural refrigerants is on the rise as supermarkets face increasing legislative pressures to reduce their overall carbon footprint through energy efficiency and climate-friendly refrigerants.

Natural refrigerants, including ammonia, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons, have zero or near-zero global warming potential (GWP), making them a future-proof solution for increasing refrigerant regulations. The transition to natural refrigerants in supermarkets has been slow, however, because of barriers like high up-front costs, a lack of data around performance and other ongoing costs, and a shortage of trained service and maintenance technicians. 

NASRC, in partnership with its 130-plus stakeholders from across the supermarket industry, is taking action to remove those barriers and make natural refrigerants a strong business choice for supermarkets.Temprite now joins their effort to help supermarkets transition to climate-friendly natural refrigerants.

“We chose to join the NASRC because we want to get the message out about how Temprite’s products are good for the environment in multiple ways,and they help save money by lowering electricity consumption and increasing refrigeration system capacity. NASRC is an ideal platform for accomplishing those objectives,” said Jim Nonnie, Temprite’s President.

Temprite was founded in 1924 and now supplies energy-efficient coalescent and conventional oil separators,oil reservoirs, drier housings, liquid receivers, suction accumulators, and refrigerant oil management products.The company first introduced its components for CO2 transcritical refrigeration systems in 2006 and has been expanding its natural refrigeration solutions ever since.

“We provide supermarket energy managers and technicians with products, technical data, and practical equations they can use to quantify their energy and financial savings resulting from using Temprite’s products in natural refrigerants systems,” Nonnie continued.

“We’re pleased to welcome Temprite into our growing network,” said Morgan Smith, NASRC manager of programs & operations. “They’ve demonstrated a longstanding commitment to advancing energy efficient natural refrigerant solutions, and we look forward to leveraging their expertise to further accelerate our progress.”

In addition to Temprite, NASRC’s member network represents more than 24,000 US supermarket locations and stakeholders from throughout the commercial refrigeration industry, including service contractors,manufacturers and suppliers, consultants, engineering firms, trade associations, distributors, and nonprofits.
