Auckland refrigerant conference a success for Bitzer
In July, Auckland’s Waipuna Conference Centre hosted BITZER’s Technical Roadshow. Similar events occurred in both Sydney and Melbourne, each drawing a sizeable crowd eager to hear the latest in refrigerant developments and technology.
The event included guest appearances from John Bowen, Director of Refrigerant Recovery NZ, and John McCormack from Sythree (formerly head of Chemours Fluoroproducts in Australia). The BITZER engineering team and their global Chief Technology Officer Rainer Grosse-Kracht rounded out the speaker list. Presentations covered everything from looming phase-down regulations to refrigerant choice to product developments, including compressor technology, refrigeration systems and heat exchange. A Q&A panel session enabled key questions from the crowd to be answered by the experts on stage.
The theme of the Roadshow was ‘Bridging the Gap’; a nod to the company’s ability to provide products, advice and support to ensure local businesses comply with new refrigerant legislation.
