2018 will bring a new refrigerant situation for your MAJA Ice Machines
R404A has been the standard refrigerant in MAJA Ice Machines for many years. The new F-gas-regulation intends to reduce the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases, which will lead to the relief of R404A due to its high GWP of 3922. What does this mean for MAJA Ice Machines:
With the beginning of the new year, all MAJA Flake Ice Machines of the compact range SAH 85 - SAH 3000 will be supplied with the new refrigerant R449A (GWP 1397). For still existing old machines, the market will still offer some residual quantities of R404A. But the stock is quite exhausted already now and prices are raising from day to day.
Our recommendation: If you still use an elder MAJA Flake Ice Machine which will need in the near future a certain maintenance investment, please think about the purchase of a new MAJA ice machine - for saving your money and the environment!
The RVH range and the RVH-L/-LT ranges are not directly concerned of this new situation as they are supplied always without refrigerant charge. It is your decision if you would like to run your refrigeration system with R449A or R404A. Other refrigerants on demand. Please contact our ice specialists if you need further information.
More and more customers completely banish fluorinated refrigerants from their cooling system. They reorganize their multicompressor system on the eco-friendly refrigerant R744 / CO2. Being among the pioneers in the field of ice production in direct operation with R744, MAJA is able to offer the RVH-CO2 flake ice machines with daily capacities of 500 - 15.200 kg/24 h.
