Refrigeration units operating with carbon dioxide (R744) were first seen at the beginning of the twentieth century, before natural refrigerant was increasingly replaced by synthetic refrigerants. Nowadays, CO2 refrigeration units are experiencing a comeback – not least because of the inexpensive availability and environmentally friendly balance of CO2 as well as the legal restrictions of synthetic refrigerants. TEKO Kältetechnik has been developing innovative CO2 refrigeration units for you for over 15 years – for safe operation even under extreme conditions.

Why is a CO2 refrigeration unit a clever cooling solution?
CO2 refrigeration units can be seen more and more, especially in the food refrigeration sector, and it’s no surprise because they offer numerous advantages:
- Minimal environmental impact: CO2 has no ozone depletion potential and boasts a low GWP (1), which means that CO2 refrigeration units are very environmentally friendly.
- Cost efficiency: CO2 is a naturally occurring substance with high availability. This means that it is available at a low cost, meaning that you as the operator of a CO2 refrigeration unit benefit from lower operating costs. Low maintenance and service costs as well as a sustainable energy footprint mean that CO2 units also score points in terms of operating cost accounting.
- Heat recovery: Depending on the type, some R744 units also enable heat recovery. With this intelligent solution, energy from the refrigeration unit can be reused, for example for heating purposes, making the system particularly efficient.
- Good thermal characteristics: Due to the very high volumetric refrigeration capacity and heat transfer coefficient of CO2, the individual components of the refrigeration unit (compressor, pipe diameter, heat exchanger) can be made much smaller and more space-saving.
- Future-proof concept: R744 is a natural substance with high environmental compatibility. That is why, unlike synthetic refrigerants, no legal restrictions or prohibitions need to be anticipated – CO2 refrigeration therefore promises to be a future-proof refrigeration solution!
