Master-Bilt has introduced the Parallel Glycol Rack Refrigeration System, which uses the most energy efficient refrigeration system available to chill a glycol loop that cools equipment in a foodservice kitchen or retail environment.
Sources say the most unique feature of the Master-Bilt glycol system is its utilization of floating head pressure technology, lowering energy consumption of the refrigeration system by as much as 25% over a standard mechanically-controlled glycol system. The system uses full state-of-the-art digital controls to provide greater precision, diagnostics, data logging and monitoring capability.
The glycol system reduces refrigerant charge and keeps refrigerant completely contained within the parallel rack system. Only the chilled glycol is distributed to the kitchen. The result is less refrigerant and piping, leading to less chance of refrigerant leaks that cause greenhouse gasses to escape into the atmosphere.
