Pump is specially designed for CO2

Grundfos Pumps, CO2

The Grundfos RC pump is said to be the first in the world to have been designed and optimised for use with CO2 as a refrigerant. It uses about a third of the energy of a standard centrifugal pump for the same purpose. This performance is achieved by utilising variable-speed capacity control and intelligent pump protection. Grundfos sees potential for this pump in applications such as large retailers that base their stores on refrigeration systems using CO2.
