NH3 refrigeration technology

High efficiency chiller for medium and low temperature industrial application

Ammonia or NH3 is a natural refrigerant of the L2 type, mainly used in industrial plants, known as chillers or air-cooled plants. NH3 refrigeration technology is characterised by their excellent thermodynamic properties.

Thanks to their size, these plants enable the use of ammonia as a refrigerant to be highly efficient and highly effective.

Its performance allows its application in medium and low temperatures, reaching temperatures down to -70 ºC.

These plants, thanks to their size, allow the use of ammonia as a refrigerant to be highly efficient. Ammolite brings together the latest ammonia technology to reduce the refrigerant charge and therefore improve performance and efficiency.

NH3 systems


INTARCON’s NH3 refrigeration technologies have the next benefits:

  • Efficiency and higher performance than other HFC gases such as R134a, R290 or even CO2.
  • Reliability and safety due to current regulations, This regulates the safe application in its installations and its characteristic smell, easy to identify in case of leakage.
  • Environmental sustainability. NH3 is a natural refrigerant with zero GWP and ODP.
  • Smart investment, due to its fast return on investment at maximum yield.
  • Energy efficiency. Thanks to its excellent thermodynamic properties, electricity consumption is reduced and a quick return on investment is achieved.
  • Low maintenance. It is an optimised and compact system thanks to the functionality of its refrigeration system.
  • Low cost, due to the abundance of this natural refrigerant.
  • Low natural refrigerant charge. Thanks to the critical charge design without receiver, it also incorporates energy-saving components. 
  • No need for a machine room. System with incorporated air condenser, designed for outdoor installation.
  • No water consumption. Thanks to air condensation for temperatures up to 47ºC, the system is therefore free from the risk of legionellosis.
  • Lower fabrication cost. Its refrigeration system uses smaller diameter steel pipes, which saves money.

At INTARCON we have a wide range of products adapted to NH3 refrigeration technologies solutions, incorporating the most innovative technologies in the sector, thanks to the kiconex system. In addition, a technical advice service based on finding alternative solutions to your needs.
