The first NewTon3000 will be introduced at GCAP in U.S.
Garden City Ammonia Program (GCAP) located in Kansas U.S., a private industrial ammonia technical school, decides to introduce NH3/CO2 cooling system NewTon3000.
GCAP is the only private industrial ammonia technical school providing lectures on refrigerating theory and hands on training for operating refrigeration systems effectively. It has supplied training to operators from 412 companies from over 16 countries and produces experts in refrigeration systems every year. Since CO2 emission reduction and prevention of global warming are their missions, they actively provide education for operators who handle refrigeration systems using natural refrigerants.
In recent years, regulations for ammonia charge have been tightening at state level, as in California, restricted by the Title 24, the new 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, refrigeration systems should make a shift from conventional central type to multiple layout type, indirect cooling type. Therefore GCAP has decided to introduce the high efficiency system "NewTon3000" which utilizes NH3/CO2 and has less ammonia charge as training equipment
The first system in the U.S. will be also displayed at the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) in 2011.
Mr. Randy Williams, the CEO of GCAP visited and inspected the NewTon3000 in Moriya Plant (Japan) in September.
