The Hillphoenix® name is synonymous with innovative, sustainable and extremely efficient refrigeration systems in a variety of business segments. While much of the company’s reputation has been built as the primary choice in the Retail Supermarket category, Hillphoenix brings identical and considerable benefits to industrial refrigeration. Cold Storage, Industrial Refrigeration, Pharma and even Ice Rinks are all prime markets for the Hillphoenix expertise with DX and CO2 refrigeration systems. No other refrigeration systems supplier can match the years of significant investment in R&D, the commitment to flexible and custom design and the sheer number of solution options available underneath the Hillphoenix name.
Advansor CO2 Booster System
- Easier to operate than NH3 systems.
- More cost-efficient TCO (total cost of ownership) than NH3 in terms of equipment, installation, and service.
- Quick and simple commissioning.
- CO2 in cold storage areas and processing areas is safer for product and people than NH3.
- Systems are lighter weight and command a smaller footprint.
- 100% HFC free.
- High quality heat reclaim opportunities for under-floor heating and process heating loads.
- More efficient than HFC refrigerant systems in certain climates.
Here’s how it works.
The cooling cycle begins with liquid CO2 in the flash tank (receiver) (1). A network of pipes distributes the liquid to evaporators specially-designed for optimum operation in CO2 booster systems. Electronic expansion valves (EEVs) are in place to control the flow of CO2 into those evaporators (2)….Suction gas from the low-temperature evaporators returns to the rack and is compressed by the subcritical compressors to the pressure of the medium-temperature evaporators (3)….Suction gas from the medium-temperature evaporators returns to the rack and is combined with discharge gas from the low-temperature compressors and flash gas exiting the flash tank via the flash gas bypass valve (4)….This mixture enters the trans-critical compressors and is compressed to high pressure (5)….From there it is sent to the gas cooler where it is cooled to near ambient temperature — in cooler weather, the CO2 in the gas cooler condenses similar to conventional systems (6)….From the gas cooler, the CO2 enters the high-pressure control valve where it is expanded back to subcritical pressures (7)….The CO2 then enters the flash tank where it is separated into liquid and gas — and the cycle begins again.
NXTCOLD Low Charge Ammonia System
(Available in the Canada and Latin America only)
A little ammonia — tons of cooling.
Ammonia is the most environmentally friendly natural refrigerant with a GWP (Global Warming Potential) and ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential) right at zero. Yet, the inherent hazards of using ammonia to cool have resulted in a tangle of regulatory liability and personal safety concerns — until now.
The Hillphoenix® NXTCOLD® technology has solved the compliance and hazard issues by creating an ultra low charge ammonia industrial refrigeration system — ultra low as in 8 ounces of ammonia per ton! — in systems from 5 tons up to 150 tons.
More efficiency — More savings.
The NXTCOLD system is equal to or even more energy efficient than a central engine room system for several reasons. The use of close-coupled components eliminates a host of potential trouble spots. The system has no liquid refrigerant pump which keeps it simpler and more economical.
And NXTCOLD systems keep pressure constant without pressure drops that can compromise compressor capacity and increase power usage.
Ammonia’s superior heat transfer properties add to the savings because it allows equipment to have smaller heat transfer areas — which lowers plant construction costs and reduces operating costs!

CO2 Cascade System
Save Energy. Save Space. Save Hassle.
Parallel Rack Technology Doubles Down on Efficiency
The Hillphoenix® CO2 Cascade refrigeration product line combines one of nature’s most abundant elements — CO2 — with a secondary coolant of choice (ammonia, glycol, HFC etc.) in a parallel rack design that increases redundant capacity and refrigeration system availability.
Hillphoenix has spent years developing and refining the compressor technology employed in the CO2 Cascade systems. The compressors are durable and reliable and will deliver long, uninterrupted operations. But when service is required, the parallel rack design has a distinct, built-in advantage.
Multiple compressors linked in parallel eliminate the costly inconvenience of downtime — scheduled or otherwise — because one compressor can be isolated for maintenance while the others in the system pick up the slack by adjusting their output to match load demands. There will be no interruption or degradation of service whatsoever. Maintenance is a breeze and serviceability enhanced when compressors are linked in a parallel rack configuration.
A cascade of choices
The Advansor Direct Transcritical CO2 system for ice rinks delivers superior performance — improved ice quality and pump power savings of up to 90% — compared to traditional systems. It’s also environmentally friendly. CO2 is an entirely nontoxic, environmentally safe refrigerant with excellent heat-transfer capabilities….Read more
