Cooltech at Euroshop, the world’s leading supermarket trade show
Cooltech Applications exhibited its Magnetic Refrigeration Systems at Euroshop in Dusseldorf (Germany) this march. This show gave Cooltech the opportunity to directly discuss potential projects with End Users. Many major food retailers and refrigerating equipment’s manufacturers came discuss with Cooltech’s team for new projects and developments. Cooltech’s management took also advantage of the show to present the current development of the scalable-35KW MRS ( up to 100 KW of cooling!) for commercial, industrial refrigeration and air conditioning projects.
ATMOsphere Japan: Cooltech gave the lastest updates on Magnetic Refrigeration!
On February 20th, during the latest ATMOSPHERE’s event in Tokyo (Japan), Cooltech gave several speeches on its Magnetic Refrigeration System (MRS) in front of about 200 market stakeholders, including significant retailers like Lawson, Family Mart, Aeon as well as world’s leading manufacturers such as Panasonic, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mayekawa, Sanden, Embraco, Danfoss...
The talks highlighted the possibility to soon deploy Magnetic Cooling in Japan, not only for light commercial refrigeration but also for larger cooling applications.
Besides several business meetings with key Japanese manufacturers in refrigeration systems, Cooltech also attented SMTS , the big Food &Supermarket trade show (http://www.smts.jp/en/)
Chillventa 2016 : a roaring success and a key landmark for Cooltech Applications!
Chillventa 2016, held in Nuremberg, Germany (October 11-13) was a tremendous success for Cooltech Applications with over 450 people visiting the stand. Among them, key actors of the refrigeration markets (manufacturers, OEMs, end users, …) as well as journalists and scientists came meet and discuss projects with Cooltech’s engineers.
Cooltech exhibited its groundbreaking Magnetic Refrigeration System (the MRS400) integrated into a display case, previously demonstrated at Carrefour’s head office. The 3-day event was a commercial breakthrough with numerous business meetings with significant actors and a highly successful conference. Chillventa is the leading tradeshow in Europe in the HVAC&R industry with more than 32,000 visitors and nearly 1,000 exhibitors.
Cooltech Applications is partnering with Carrefour
The company entered into an agreement with the leading supermarket chain to install a fully equipped magneto-caloric display cabinet at Carrefour‘s head office - Demonstrations in stores will follow.
“Our intention is now to test several magnetic refrigerated display cabinets in stores. In addition to the environmental performance with no gas emission, magnetic cooling will bring significant energy savings to our stores” said Jean-Michel Fleury, Project director – International support at Carrefour.
“After successful product integrations with several display case manufacturers, we are delighted to partner with a leading supermarket chain like Carrefour”, said Christian Muller, President of Cooltech. Both companies will continue demonstrations in stores in the next months.
The event was the 7th International Conference on Magnetic Refrigeration. It gathered scientists from worldwide universities and research institutions, as well as major companies such as Whirlpool, GE, LG Electronics, Samsung, Sanden, Chubu, BASF etc... Many of the nearly 200 attendees exhibited their ongoing works and studies related to magnetic refrigeration.
Cooltech Applications, with more than 15 engineers and PhD’s, remains very close to the scientific community and contributes to the increase in knowledge about the technology. The every other year event is a fantastic opportunity to share insights and discuss the latest developments on magnetic systems and on the coming generations of magneto-caloric materials, giving higher performance at cheaper costs.
Recurrent attendee to Thermag, Cooltech Applications gave a detailed presentation on its industrial and technical status and exhibited its standard magnetic cooling device that performs negative temperature (frozen heat exchangers).
Cooltech launches its MRS in the United States of America!
The company announced an agreement with Structural Concepts for deploying the first magnetic cooling display cases in North America.
“Our company is thrilled to announce our partnership with Cooltech as our next major investment in disruptive technology. Our partnership with Cooltech and their MRS technology will give us the unprecedented opportunity to be on the leading edge of a refrigeration revolution” said Dave Geerts, President of Structural Concepts.
“After successful product integrations in Europe, we are delighted to introduce the technology in the USA”, said Christian Muller, President of Cooltech.
Cooltech Applications exhibited its Magnetic Refrigeration System at FMI connect in Chicago this June. It was a tremendous success for the company which is pursuing its breakthrough into North America.
Many of the major food retailers and refrigerating equipment’s manufacturers in North America came discuss with Cooltech’s engineers for getting information on the technology and its benefits. Cooltech’s management took also advantage of the show to introduce its next MRS-20KW development for further market applications in commercial and industrial refrigeration.
Cooltech at ATMOsphere Europe 2016!
Cooltech Applications participated to ATMOsphere Europe 2016. The conference took place in Barcelona on the 19th and 20th April. The event attracted over 400 HVAC-R market actors who shared experiences on the latest best practices and explored future solutions for a greener cooling.
Cooltech presented a case study about MagFreeG "deploying magnetic cooling", its 1.7 M€ European project. It was a fantastic opportunity to give an overview of Cooltech’s achievements and to highlight the market potential of the Magnetic Refrigeration technology.
First integration tests with freezing temperatures!
After successful integrations within refrigerated equipment (medical refrigerator, display cases...) with cooling temperature, Cooltech Applications is now preparing for another future with negative temperature.
The picture shows how heat exchangers have behaved with the adapted MRS... to be followed!
