Energy Efficiency Technology

From Ozgun Danaci, DNV GL

Until recently, the healthcare industry relied on ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers with compressor-based cascade refrigeration systems. Cascade systems are simply two separate compressor-driven refrigeration cycles in a cascade arrangement that achieves ultra-low temperatures by removing heat from the freezer in two stages. The first cycle removes heat from the…
