Transforming Technologies Conference



3 March 2010 | Institute of Mechanical Engineers, London


Learn about the new technology set to transform the acr industry

Join fellow industry professionals at the IMechE for an unmissable practical insight into the new cutting edge technologies set to transform the future of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

Hear expert speakers on:

  • Nanotechnology
    Can micro additives transform plant performance?
  • Magnetic bearing compressors
    The new generation of virtually friction-free compressors that could replace conventional technologies.
  • Revolutionary fault diagnosis
    How a 15-minute check can pinpoint performance problems and future failure  – while plant is still running.
  • Transforming plant efficiency
    More than half of all acr systems underperform. How to easily spot it and stop it – and save thousands of pounds.
  • The chiller revolution
    Insight into a new type of ultra-efficient chiller that can halve energy costs
  • New heat exchange technology
    A leader in micro-channel heat exchangers reveals the latest advances
  • HFOs – the new refrigerants
    Will HFOs become the new mainstream refrigerants of choice?
  • New hydrocarbon blends
    With pressure on HFCs, could a new range of high-tech HC blends step in?
  • Scroll compressors for heating
    A new market is opening up as compressors are harnessed for heating
