Common applications of refrigeration gases

Refrigeration is the artificial removal of heat resulting in less heat. This process is very vital in everyday activities with common applications of refrigeration gases including; electricity production, pharmaceutical industry, food & beverage industry and data centres.

The gases that help us with moving heat out are these refrigerants and they are pumped through a closed refrigeration system which allows the same refrigerant to be used again and again.

Refrigerants are chemical compounds that are compressed and condensed into a liquid and then permitted to expand into a gas as they are pumped through the refrigeration system. They evaporate at lower temperatures than water, which allows them to extract heat faster than the water on your finger.

Common applications of refrigeration gases

Many industries rely on refrigeration gases to have their operations running optimally. Such industries include;

Electricity Production
Electric generators obviously generate great amounts of heat when operating. To maintain operations, large refrigeration systems are necessary. The refrigeration equipment is commonly based on compression or absorption cycles.

The pharmaceutical industry maintains strict conditions of its labs and production facilities from cleanliness to temperature. Subsequently, they rely on refrigeration systems that allow temperature adjustment of rooms and storage units to exact temperatures. They use a central cooling plant with transformer stations and refrigerants that are distributed through the different clean rooms of the factory. Other refrigeration systems are oxy-chlorination plants, ammonia/chlorine/oxygen liquefaction plants, or compressed air cooling.

Food and Beverage Industry
Maintaining and managing the cold chain in the food and beverage industry is critical for preserving products. Furthermore, this avoids the possibility of microbiological contamination.

Each product has its own optimal conditions for storage and preservation. Moreover, refrigeration helps to ensure food safety and to preserve the value of the food. Lastly, it extends the recommended consumption period.

Breweries require several refrigeration systems to finish the biological and chemical reactions that take place during the process. Additionally, this is ideal in preserving the optimal conditions of the tasty beverages.

Data Centers
Finally, the huge number of computer servers in a data center produce heat during operation. Overheating is not an option as they can destroy the servers and all the data they are there to store and protect. These rooms require cooling consistently and effectively 24/7 365 days a year.
