Grand opening for CO2 refrigeration lab

The 17th of November was the grand opening day for the new refrigeration test lab at NTNU (the Norwegian University of Science and Technology) in Trondheim, Norway. The CO2 test rack is the first of its kind and the installation is expected to have a strong impact on future innovation and educational skills of students. 

The Master- and PhD students now have great opportunities to work with new innovations and further improve CO2 refrigeration systems. The installation will also be used for training of refrigeration engineers.

Finally, the lab will be used actively in international research projects such as SuperSmart and HighEff.

Advansor CO2 test rack

Advansor have designed the impressive CO2 test rack enabling the operator to simulate operation with parallel compression, gas ejector and liquid ejector. The rack is connected to both supermarket cabinets and secondary loads. This makes it possible to simulate supermarket load profiles under variating ambient conditions.
