Ammonia Refrigeration Solutions

Ammonia is a cost-effective and widely available refrigerant that is popular in many industrial applications such as food processing, cold storage, and ice rinks, due to its high latent heat of vaporization and low boiling point. While ammonia has no ozone depletion potential and a global warming potential rating of zero, it can be toxic and flammable, which poses a safety risk if not handled properly. Despite these concerns, ammonia is still commonly used in large-scale refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Trained professionals typically handle ammonia in a closed system to minimize the risk of leaks or exposure.

Berg’s Indoor Ammonia Refrigeration System chosen for a Packaged Foods Facility

Berg Industrial Service was chosen by a packaged foods facility in Paris, Ontario to support the facility’s new spiral line freezer. The ammonia system had a cooling capacity of 244TR at –40F.

Through Berg’s custom built-up ammonia chilling system, the company was able to preserve packaged chicken products in a more productive, energy efficient way.
