Wilhelmsen Ships introduces Unicool refrigerants

Lysaker, Norway: Wilhelmsen Shipping Service has introduced Unicool R-417A as a cost-efficient option for replacing R-22 ozone depleting refrigerant.

The move comes as vessels continue to change their refrigeration systems and move away from ozone-depleting refrigerants. According to Wilhelmsen product marketing manager refrigerants, Sten Rath, the challenge for the business is to navigate through the jungle of replacement alternatives offered from the world-wide chemical industry.

“As market leader for marine refrigerants, Wilhelmsen Ships Service has, through a series of activities like “Catch R-22″, prepared the industry for this change,” Rath says.

“After performing in-house tests, Wilhelmsen Ships Service decided on Unicool R-417A in direct expansion systems across a variety of applications.”
