Australian food manufacturer opts for NH3

In a sign that an increasing number of industrial end users are recognising the benefits of moving to natural refrigerants, Australia-based freshly prepared chilled and frozen meal manufacturer Jewel Fine Foods opted to install an ammonia-based refrigeration system at its new factory in Sydney.

The new factory is located in Banksmeadow, a suburb of Sydney. The system was commissioned in early 2017.

For the new factory, Jewel Fine Foods chose to use an ammonia-based system for the factory's refrigeration and process cooling needs.
