R & D research on Compressors

A new technology for ammonia wash cabinet to keep the ammonia from the atmosphere. 

The Newton 3000 that will be shipped to the United States for in house training for ammonia operators using Ammonia and Co2 system.  No shaft seals and it will operate at -50 degrees below zero. This could be used at Large Super Markets or cool storage warehouse.  Over 75 are installed and a back order of 35 units.  This unit will be the first in the United States, and we are very proud of the test results for the green.  This unit will save about 35% in energy over the old style Freon units. 

Ammonia Compressor the can be used for grocery stores with glycol secondary refrigeration system. This is being tested at Stockholm Sweden Royal University. 27% more efficient than R-22 refrigerant.

Dear Randy Williams and Garden City Ammonia Program    

I would like to thank you for the sponsorship of Garden City Ammonia Program to the IIR Conference on Ammonia Refrigeration Technology held from 7 to 9 of May 2009 in Ohrid.
Even though the global economic crisis and flu epidemic the conference was very successful attended by 95 experts from 24 countries. Information are announced on more than 70 websites, many journals and newsletters.

The conference website now is redesigned and updated, you can find the final programme, list of participants and a photo gallery from the conference.

Thank you for your cooperation and look forward for your team to attend our next conference.

Best regards,
Risto Ciconkov
