With an already impressive track record and knowledge base for CO2 refrigeration solutions, the Danish specialist is continuously improving its existing technologies as well as developing new components. This brief Danfoss R744 update provides you an overview of the existing portfolio and the new products coming up, including the new CO2 ADAP KOOL pack controller, the high pressure valve CCMT and an upgraded GBC ball valve.

To meet the increasing market demand, especially within the food retail industry, Danfoss continues to develop its product portfolio for CO2 systems. Building on several years of experience the company’s main target is to meet the market needs with the highest quality products.

New products from Danfoss coming soon

Upcoming innovative Danfoss technologies include:
  • CO2 ADAP KOOL: A new CO2 ADAP KOOL pack controller that integrates more functions into one unit, giving the end user even more energy efficiency options. Among the functions: heat reclaim and oil management.
  • CCMT: A new high pressure valve, namely CCMT, which will serve as a supplement to the ICMTS in the low end of the ICMTS capacity range.
  • GBC ball valve: An upgraded GBC ball valve optimized for CO2 and high pressure.
  • Portfolio activities: Danfoss has more projects forthcoming in their CO2 portfolio within their core competences. More information soon on R744.com.
R744 Portfolio extract

For the food retail CO2 segment, the following key components were best-sellers last year:
  • ADAP KOOL and EKC: The well known ADAP KOOL and EKC electronic controllers
  • ICMTS: The legendary ICMTS valve for high pressure transcritical applications with MWP of 140 bar and MOPD of 90 bar
  • CCM valve: The CCM valve released in October 2010 for gas by-pass and expansion with MWP of 90 bar and MOPD up to 50 bar
  • AKVH valve: The known work horse AKVH valve for expansion with MWP up to 90 bar and MOPD of 35 bar
Safety and reliability

Danfoss, as the market leader within controls for CO2, places great emphasis on secure safety and reliability. For the food retail segment, general safety, food safety, reliability, sustainability and ease of use are among the top priorities for product development. Various quality and performance initiatives employed by Danfoss include the following:
  • TS16949 certification
  • Long test periods to optimize all components and solutions
  • Design according to PED, EN12284 and often also the UL standard. As an example, the ICMTS and CCM can be mentioned, as every single valve is pressure set to more than 200 bar before it leaves the factory with burst pressures even above 5 x MWP.
  • Heavy use of flow simulation tools and other software tests to create the most cost-beneficial solutions for Danfoss customers.
  • Valves like the ICMTS , CCM, AKVH and the coming CCMT, are serviceable to secure the shortest possible down time for the end user, if e.g. dirt in the systems prevent optimal performance
  • Further the CCM and the coming CCMT are made with combi-connections, leaving it up to the customer to chose if he wants to braze or weld the valve in the application.
