Why does Carbon Dioxide (CO2) stand out in a DX Heat Exchanger in low temperature systems?

Why does Carbon Dioxide (CO2) stand out in a DX Heat Exchanger in low temperature systems? Since the Kigali Amendment of Montreal Protocol in 2016, the world refrigeration community has been looking more into the natural refrigerant route. The Kigali Amendment calls for the phase out of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) as follows: Developed countries: 10% reduction […]

Next Generation Power Plants: Supercritical Carbon Dioxide

Next Generation Power Plants: Supercritical Carbon Dioxide When Carbon Dioxide (CO2) operates above its critical point, it is called Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) where there is no distinction between liquid and gas phase. In this phase CO2 undergoes a continuous, non-isothermal transition from “gas-like” to “liquid-like” properties resulting in significant spikes in specific heat and […]
