Hands on Equipment

With one of the most complete training facilities in the world, GCAP has 3 different ammonia engine rooms available for operator training which include 20 different compressors (one running on an ammonia/ CO2 cascade system), and 5 live natural gas fire tube boilers. Garden City Ammonia Program trains over 1,300 students per year.

New Developments in the GCAP Training lab

GCAP has recently installed Mycom/ Mayekawa NewTon 3000, the world’s first semi-hermetic screw compressor unit running on a NH3/CO2 cascade system. The NewTon 3000 uses NH3 (ammonia) as a refrigerant, and employs an indirect cooling method that circulates liquefied CO2 for cooling cold storage rooms.

Mayekawa is one of the world’s leading freezing and refrigeration equipment manufacturers advocating the “Natural 5” refrigerants (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, water and air), as a way to protect the ozone layer and stop global warming.
