News Events and Presentations

  • VaCom completed a study concerning demand response in refrigerated warehouses in California for the Demand Response Research Center (DRRC), operated by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in Berkeley, California.  The primary objective of this report was to provide an overview of the variety of industrial refrigerated facilities, refrigeration systems, and control systems found throughout California.  A follow-on project is planned, including additional field data collection and study of advanced control methods.

  • When we install controls for non-ammonia systems, we typically also install refrigerant detection and alarming.  This helps achieve compliance with these new regulations, as well as reducing refrigerant replacement costs.  See the Refrigerant Management Program download for more information.
