The CO2 Technology and Training Center features 3 refrigeration racks with modern semihermetic compressors of the Octagon series in parallel application, used at medium and low evaporation temperatures. There are also 3 cold rooms, two medium temperature (cooling and walk-in cooler) and one low temperature (freezing) room. Installed in each cold room are the evaporators (air coolers) of their respective racks. In addition, there are also two low temperature islands, which are linked only to the CO2 rack. 
Additions to the existing technology originally installed at the end of 2008 will include a CO2 rack in the transcritical condition and another one using CO2 and ammonia in the subcritical condition. There will also be a water chiller with R1270 that will be used as the center’s air conditioner.
