At Chillventa 2014 in Nuremburg, Germany, Danfoss Industrial Automation will introduce a new high-pressure sensor, the MBS 8250, specially designed for use in food retail applications to ensure excellent operation of refrigeration systems using natural refrigerant CO2 and even lower the total cost of ownership.

Danfoss Industrial Automation, a recognised and trusted manufacturer of components, is introducing a new high-pressure sensor, the MBS 8250, which has been specifically developed for use in supermarkets using CO2 refrigeration systems. The new sensor supplements Danfoss’ already broad refrigeration product portfolio.
Meeting the needs of a growing market with MBS 8250
CO2 is becoming an established refrigeration solution for larger stores, a trend fuelled by the coolant’s outstanding thermodynamic performance, taxes on HFCs, reductions in system size and an increased environmental consciousness of retailers and consumers alike.
The Danfoss MBS 8250 pressure sensor is designed specially for use in the demanding field of CO2 supermarket refrigeration, where control of the discharge pressure is an important parameter in optimising a transcritical CO2 system. 
The MBS 8250 has been tested thoroughly to ensure excellent operation in CO2 applications, proving effective monitoring of the high-pressure side in a CO2 transcritical cycle and reliability in pressure measurement.
MBS 8250 at a glance
  • Pressure ranges: from  -1…59 Bar to -1…159 Bar (absolute or sealed-gauge)  
  • Output signals: 4 – 20 mA or ratio metric output  
  • High degree of EMC/EMI protection
  • Digitally calibrated and temperature compensated for high accuracy requirements 
  • Designed for use in harsh industrial environments
  • Enclosure and wetted parts of AISI 316L (hermetic solution – no internal O-rings needed) 
  • Excellent shock and vibration robustness
  • Self-diagnostic features on demand
  • Integrated pulse-snubber (protected against cavitation, liquid hammering and pressure peaks)
  • RoHS conformity

Lower total cost of ownership
In addition to field-tested quality performance, MBS 8250 pressure transmitter lowers the total cost of ownership of supermarket refrigeration systems while also reducing the total carbon footprint.
Catch Danfoss at Chillventa!
Danfoss will be in hall 4, booth 102 at Chillventa in Nuremberg, Germany from 14-16 October. The trade fair will also be the world premiere of a new visual identity for Danfoss.
