Danish Bakery, Easyfood Selects Carrier Commercial Refrigeration as Supplier of Transcritical CO2 racks for New Production Line

Denmark -

Carrier Commercial Refrigeration (CCR) has been chosen to provide transcritical CO2 racks for a new production line that will produce sausage rolls. The equipment will include two PowerCO2OL racks with a combined capacity of 1,100 kilowatts (kW) at various temperature levels. Both racks will be equipped with CCR’s patented ejector technology.

The two PowerCO2OL racks will deliver -40°C cooling for a CO2 DX spiral freezer, chilled glycol for process cooling of the machinery in the production line, cooling for three smaller medium-temperature and low-temperature cold rooms, as well as the cooling of ventilated air. The turnkey solution includes heat recovery, supplying two temperature levels for process and room heating.

“Easyfood chose the CO2 solution from Carrier due to its low power consumption, easy service and installation and the smaller machine room needed compared to an ammonia system,” explained Klaus Jensen, Sales Manager for the Industrial Segment at Carrier Denmark. “The bakery values Carrier’s proven track record with CO2 installations.”

The PowerCO2OL system is the largest CO2 rack offered by Carrier. The rack integrates CO2OLtec® Evo modulating vapor ejector technology to achieve high energy efficiency saving, providing up to 30% energy savings on an annual basis versus a standard transcritical CO2 system.
