  • 3. Preface
  • 4. CO2 – A Special Refrigerant with Unique Properties and Specific Requirements Pro‘s  Long tradition in refrigeration  Low Global Warming Potential (GWP =1)  Chemically inactive, non-flammable  Not toxic in the classical sense  Very high volumetric refrigerating capacity  Subcritical: 6 to 8 times higher than for R22, R404A or NH3  Transcritical: 4 to 5 times higher than for R22, R404A  Low refrigerant mass flow  … and it’s in beer  so it must be good The ideal refrigerant???
  • 5. CO2 – A Special Refrigerant with Unique Properties and Specific Requirements Con‘s  Critical temperature at 31°C ● requires trans-critical operation for single stage and compounded 2-stage applications (HP up to 150 bar) ● unfavourable thermodynamic properties for systems with higher discharge pressures / gas cooler outlet temperatures  Extremely high discharge pressures ● safety aspects (regulations) and component design  Limited low temperature range (triple point -56.6°C)  Lower practical limit in air than with HFCs (3.5 to 6 times less) ● CO2 is odourless − for closed rooms this may require special safety and detection systems
