HVAC/R company to announce new natural refrigerant technology at Midwest University

07/12/2010


Peoria, Ill.-based EcoThermics Corp. is holding a press conference on July 14th in conjunction with the 13th International Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Conference, the 20th International Compressor Engineering Conference, and the 1st International High Performance Buildings Conference, all held July 12-15th at Purdue University.

Held at the Hilton Garden Inn (365 East State Street, West Lafayette, Ind.), the Illinois Company plans to announce the availability of the first compressor produced in the U.S. that uses a natural refrigerant, inexpensive, and widely available carbon dioxide (CO2). 

With conference attendance expected to exceed 600, HVAC engineers and industry leaders will present findings on the technologies and research that continue to drive and shape the HVAC industry. In the spirit of these conferences, EcoThermics and Purdue University will jointly present a technical paper discussing the high-pressure fluid dynamics and thermodynamic science behind this novel compressor, which has solved long-standing industry recognized roadblocks to the development of sustainable, high-efficiency heat pumps. The EcoThermics compressor is a critical enabling component of these systems.
