Leading US manufacturer of low charge ammonia refrigeration systems, Azane, have launched their new and improved, Azanechiller 2.0 and Azanefreezer 2.0 ranges to help customers reduce energy costs and provide an efficient alternative to HCFC systems in response to the EPA’s R22 phase-out program.

As the buzz surrounding packaged low-charge ammonia systems continues to grow, leading manufacturer Azane Inc took the opportunity to showcase its updated product line at the RETA National Conference. The state-of-the-art Azanechiller 2.0 and Azanefreezer 2.0 are more energy efficient than ever before, wowing hundreds of visitors at the event in Dallas, Texas last week.

Azane’s pre-engineered low charge ammonia chiller and freezer modular packages for chilled and frozen storage, process, HVAC, and other cooling applications, are an efficient alternative to R22 systems with no PSM/RMP requirements. With all eyes on the refrigeration industry to convert to climate friendly technologies, it is important to educate businesses and refrigeration technicians on the benefits of ammonia as it has zero global warming potential.

In addition to the industry leading Azanechiller 2.0, delegates were very interested to find out about the brand new Azanefreezer 2.0, featuring the unique reverse cycle defrost system. Azane Inc is currently the only manufacturer to offer this energy-saving technology which is patented by parent company Star Refrigeration.

Derek Hamilton, VP Engineering & Services, said, “It’s always a pleasure to attend the principal annual event in the U.S. focusing on the training of refrigeration engineers. Over the three days we attracted hundreds of visitors to our booth, and we were delighted with the levels of interest shown in our low-charge ammonia refrigeration packages and of course our Apple Watch giveaway.

“Key topics at the conference were, as always, focused on the safe service and maintenance of industrial ammonia equipment. From that point of view, we always have questions from attendees about our packaged design, and the fact that, since all of our Azanefreezer control valves are contained within the package, our system can operate without the need for valve stations at every evaporator. This is a huge advantage when it comes to maintenance, and can completely remove the need for access to the roof during routine maintenance. This is increasingly attractive to businesses looking to minimize the risk to their employees.”

As a leading manufacturer in the refrigeration and cooling sector, Azane took the opportunity at the RETA conference to collect important industry data and views on available refrigerants. The company created a short survey about the general awareness of the R22 phase-out, restrictions on the use of HFCs and understanding of low charge ammonia technology. In return for filling out the survey, attendees were entered into a prize draw to win an Apple Watch.

Mr Hamilton said, “We are pleased to announce that the winner of our RETA Apple Watch giveaway is James Pate from Southeast Frozen Foods. We hope you enjoy your prize!”

He added, “We also want to congratulate all of the RETA Board, and their membership, on their continued commitment to the training of ammonia refrigeration engineers. Their work is essential for the continued success of this great industry. “

Azane’s revolutionary packaged cooling systems, the Azanechiller 2.0 and Azanefreezer 2.0, are suitable for industrial and commercial applications and are designed to improve safety, enhance productivity and reduce operational costs.
