Panasonic Corporation has developed a CO2 condensing unit available in a 15kW model (equivalent to 10HP) and in two versions (standard/special coil resistant) designed for smaller convenience stores and many other refrigeration applications.

In the UK, large CO2 refrigeration systems such as CO2 boosters (pack systems) have been commonly used for the larger sites, but recent years have seen smaller CO2 refrigeration systems such as CO2 outdoor condensing units being introduced for small convenience stores.

In addition to the pressure created by the HFC phase-down, the F-Gas Regulation bans the use of HFC refrigerants with a GWP above 2500 in all new stationary refrigeration equipment from January 2020. By adding this new 15kW unit to the CO2 condensing unit range, Panasonic now offers a wider environmentally-friendly solution for small food retail outlets who require solutions for several refrigerated display cases as well as walk-in coolers.

This product achieves its high COP refrigeration cycle with Panasonic’s unique CO2 two-stage rotary compressor. Moreover, transfer pressure control technology enables a compact and light design. The CO2 condensing unit’s design is based on extensive experience and know-how obtained in the Japanese market and conforms to the requirements of relevant regulations and safety standards in the UK.
