Why You Need to Implement Ammonia Systems in Your Next Refrigeration Project

In the dynamic landscape of refrigeration technology, ammonia refrigerant stands out as a leading solution, renowned for their efficiency and minimal environmental impact. From wholesale food storage and pharmaceutical processing plants to industrial applications, ammonia refrigeration systems offer a multitude of benefits, especially in regions like Puerto Rico where the challenges of heat and energy costs are significant.

Understanding Ammonia Refrigeration:

Ammonia, a naturally occurring gas composed of nitrogen and hydrogen, is classified as a natural refrigerant. Unlike synthetic refrigerants, ammonia boasts negligible environmental impact, making it an eco-friendly choice. Its resurgence in popularity stems from increasing awareness of the environmental harm caused by synthetic alternatives.

Advantages of Ammonia Refrigeration:

1. Environmental Sustainability: Ammonia refrigeration aligns with stringent environmental regulations due to its minimal impact on ozone depletion and global warming. This eco-friendly attribute makes it an attractive option for businesses aiming to reduce their carbon footprint. This is especially important for customers in the Puerto Rico region as new environmental regulations and goals set forth by the government change the demands of the next generation of refrigeration on the island. Our customers can rest easy knowing that our team has experience in this arena, and the products to comply.

2. Unmatched Efficiency: Ammonia refrigeration systems operate up to 20% more efficiently than alternative options, even at partial capacity. This efficiency translates to cost savings, with potential electricity cost reductions of up to 10% compared to synthetic refrigerants. These savings are vital for our Puerto Rico customers who are facing costs that are more than double the national average in the industrial sector, according to the US Energy Information Administration.

3. Safety and Reliability: Despite safety concerns associated with handling ammonia, such as leaks during loading or unloading, its distinct odor enables easy detection even at low, non-hazardous concentrations. Proper training and handling procedures mitigate risks, ensuring a safe and reliable cooling solution for businesses. Our team is trained to help you understand proper safety procedures that will help you long after our project is complete.
