Qld - What Refrigeration System Do We Use Now?

Qld - What Refrigeration System Do We Use Now?
Join AIRAH for a discussion about the future of refrigeration systems with four industry experts.

David Brown, Affil.AIRAH, is a refrigeration engineer with Beca and has over 40 years' experience in all facets of refrigeration and air conditioning. He will look at future trends in Europe and the USA, and the predicted shape of the refrigeration industry in Australia. David will also discuss proposed system efficiency, compared to what is currently installed.

Douglas Herkess is the National Accounts Segment Engineer for Kirby HVAC&R Pty Ltd (Heatcraft) and has over 25 years of HVAC&R industry experience. Douglas will focus on using CO2 as the preferred refrigerant. 

Peter O’Neill, M.AIRAH, has been involved in the refrigeration industry for over 30 years. He is currently responsible for the sales and marketing of Mayekawa products. Peter will discuss a different approach, using a system that pumps CO2 as a reticulated brine. This system offers low-charge NH3 operation, the compressor operates with a high-performance IPM motor, and utilises shell and plate heat exchangers for charge minimisation.

Jannie Howard studied Industrial Engineering in the Netherlands followed by a Masters in Industrial Refrigeration. Recently, Jannie has joined the team at Gordon Brothers Industries as Marketing Manager. After discussing a theoretical comparison between the old HFCs, some of the new HFOs, and natural refrigerants, she will delve into a specific example of a small-size, low-charge ammonia system for medium-temperature applications.
