Electrolux Professional expands use of green refrigerant gases

Electrolux Professional has expanded its use of green gases within its refrigeration equipment portfolio.

The move will see its refrigeration products use the most climate-friendly CO2 natural refrigerant, as a replacement for the less sustainable Hydrofluorocarbon greenhouse gases (HFC-gases). As well as being more environmentally-friendly, the alternative gases also offer improved operational performance and energy efficiency.

The new greener gases were introduced into Electrolux Professional’s remote compressor versions of the Prostore Cabinets and HP Premium Counters earlier this year, and will be in place in the remote Roll in cabinets by the end of 2021. The remote ecostoreHP, ecostoreHP Premium, and ecostoreHP Touch cabinets are set to be updated in the first half of 2022.

Steve Bowler, Design and Product Manager at Electrolux Professional, comments: “Refrigeration equipment is invariably in use 24/7, which makes it critical to do everything we can to minimise the impact it has on the environment. To illustrate, it can often account for as much as 40 per cent of a kitchen’s total energy consumption.

“The re-design of the cooling circuits in our refrigeration equipment optimises the natural gases, and as a result, an improved product performance and energy consumption in the cooling system is achieved. The new green gases have a cooling effect that is four times greater than HFCs, which combined with improved insulation in the updated range, significantly improves the green credentials of our products.”
