Master-Bilt has introduced its newly-redesigned remote refrigeration systems. With the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP), HFC refrigerants like R-404A can no longer be used. As of Jan. 1, 2018, these refrigerants are no longer permitted in new remote refrigeration systems used in walk-in coolers and freezers as well as remote cabinets. In response to the SNAP guidelines, Master-Bilt took the opportunity to redesign its remote systems, consisting of M-Series condensing units and E-Series evaporator coils, to operate with R448A/R449A refrigerant. These completely interchangeable, HFO-blended refrigerants were chosen because they can be widely used across several model types and provide the flexibility to continue providing the broadest product line for Master-Bilt’s customers. Master-Bilt also made several changes including expanding the M-Series condensing units to include models from ¼ HP all the way to 15 HP. It switched to more reliable and efficient compliant scroll compressors on many models. It standardized several popular options including Master Controller Reverse Cycle Defrost and evaporator pre-assembly, among other changes.
