The ozone layer is a fragile protective layer of gases, and it is effective against absorbing ultraviolet radiation from sun, protecting life on earth from excessive radiation.
This year marks the 35th anniversary of the adoption of the “Vienna Convention” and the 27th anniversary of Global Ozone Layer Protection Day. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the message conveyed by ozone protection-related treaties is about living in harmony and working together for the collective good has become more important than ever. CFCs and HCFCs are currently the main culprits of the deteriorating effect on the ozone layer, they are widely used in the refrigeration sector and the application of new refrigerants is urgent in order to improve the situation as soon as possible.
Hydrocarbon refrigeration technology is currently the world’s most advanced refrigeration technology with superior performance, energy efficiency and eco-friendliness, and is most likely to become the dominant alternative to the refrigerant industry.
Definition of HC refrigerant: a type of refrigerant consisting of only two atoms, H (hydrogen) and C (carbon).
Characteristics of HC refrigerants：①Energy saving, less refrigerant is needed for the same cooling capacity.②Environmentally friendly, this refrigerant has Zero effect to the ozone layer and Zero greenhouse effect, which is much safer than HFC refrigerants for our planet (e.g. R404a, R508B).
As a global supplier and manufacturer of complete cold chain solutions, Haier Biomedical continues to practice its corporate social responsibility for environmental protection, and is the first company in China to upgrade its entire line of fluorocarbon free refrigeration, from ULT Freezer, Cryo Freezer, Pharmacy Refrigerator to Blood Bank Refrigerator, contributing to the protection against the deteriation of ozone layer; In addition, Haier Biomedical has also contributed significant efforts towards environmental protection, energy saving and emission reduction: At present, there are 59 models of ULT Freezer worldwide that have passed the Energy Star certification, a key energy-saving indicator, and Haier Biomedical alone has 32 models.
Take the ULT Freezer DW-86L829BP as an example, the product is designed with hydrocarbon refrigeration technology, which can achieve energy savings of more than 50% which reduces operating costs; It also combines Smart Frequency refrigeration technology with a hydrocarbon refrigeration system, the average daily energy consumption of the product is as low as 8.2 kWh; the product is designed with an innovative control algorithm with the unique frequency conversion refrigeration system to balance the temperature loss, the temperature uniformity is ±3℃, which is environmentally friendly and energy saving at the same time.
In this era of extremely serious environmental protection issues, Haier Biomedical is mindful of global environmental protection concerns and has taken the initiative and corporate social responsibility for a large enterprise to lead the global environmental protection trend. At Haier Biomedical, we will spare no effort to continue to develop and research products and solutions that contribute to environmental sustainability and will continue to work closely with our key stakeholders around the world to maintain and improve the environmental health of our planet.
