A new generation of refrigerating and HVAC equipment from MIRAI INTEX will be showcased for the first time at the Chillventa 2016 international specialized exhibition.
At the Chillventa 2016 international exhibition for refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation to be held in Nuremberg, Germany on October 11-13, MIRAI INTEX will display innovative refrigeration equipment for the first time: ‘MIRAI Cold’ refrigeration machine and ‘MIRAI Climate’ climate system. Visitors of the MIRAI INTEX stand will be able to see the premiere of modern high-tech climate and refrigeration equipment that uses air – the most available and environmentally safe refrigerant as a working fluid instead of Freon.
The ‘MIRAI Cold’ range of refrigeration machines is designed to solve tasks for industrial and commercial cooling, industrial freezing (including ultra-fast), and for storage at temperatures from -60°C to -80°C. The absence of refrigerants and oils determines the maximum possible ecological purity of ‘MIRAI Cold’, and the use of the energy generated by the turboexpander enables the system to consume power comparable to traditional Freon installations.
The ‘MIRAI Climate’ air climate system, which will also be showcased at the exhibition by the specialists of MIRAI INTEX, is a multimode thermal machine that works in the summer (t = +27…+50°C) as an air conditioner, and in winter (t = -50…+7°C) as a heat pump. If necessary, it can also operate in cooling mode. The main feature of the ‘MIRAI Climate’ system is its ability to provide high quality indoor air through a 100% fresh air inflow, while conventional air conditioners use the air circulating in the room.
Chillventa 2016 – international specialized exhibition on refrigerating equipment, air conditioning systems, ventilation and heat pumps. The exhibition was founded in 2008 and is held once every two years. At Chillventa 2016 the key problems of modern industry will be highlighted: energy efficiency development with cooling and air conditioning, renewable sources of energy and effective indoor air purification.
World tendencies in biotechnologies and the potential of medical research development require а significant expansion of refrigerating powers for the high-quality storage of biosamples.
Modern progress suggests that the specific temperature range of -50°C to -80°C makes it possible to not only preserve a high quality of biomaterials, but also to extend their storage period. The latest huge up growth of the pharma and medicine industries, as well as demand for high-tech products, requires new standards and needs of low-temperature storage.
The most illustrative examples of blood components and biosample storage centres with a well-developed infrastructure are:
• The Bank of Biological Samples at Odense University Hospital (Denmark)
• National Biobank in Great Britain
• Biobank of the Medical University of Graz (Austria)
These and some other European projects show that low-temperature storage at -80 ° C becomes a mandatory attribute of research and scientific centres.
The world trend of growing popularity and demand for biobanks and low-temperature storage of biological samples have lead MIRAI INTEX to develop equipment, which operates with clean air instead of harmful Freon gases, and provides a cold room of any size with the temperature range of -50°C to -80°C. Eco-friendly air cycle refrigeration technology makes it possible to create modern and safe biobanks.
The 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) took place in Paris from 30 November to 11 December 2015 where nearly 200 governments came to a consensus on the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This document is regarded by many observers as an achievement in itself and is being hailed as “historic”.
COP21 presents an unprecedented opportunity to define a new vector of world economic development. This climate agreement replaces the Kyoto Protocol of 1997 and determines a global strategy to minimize human impact on the climate.
MIRAI Intex welcomes the common efforts of all countries to prevent climate change and supports the UN climate initiative. We are sure that the results of the climate conference in Paris can become a breakthrough in the history of environmental agreements. MIRAI Intex’s priority interests encompass all the public discussions of the climate change problems. The company’s major activity is to produce ozone-friendly equipment, which does not affect global warming. Thatis why MIRAI Intex insists on bringing down greenhouse gas emissions to net zero all over the world. This is in line with the scientific evidence presented at the Conference.
The goals stated in the agreement are achievable. Not only governments but also private business should work on the implementation of new technologies. For example, the refrigerating and climate control system industry can now use natural air as the safest and most available refrigerant.
