No. Although refrigerant systems are widely utilised, they have their operational limits, complications, and environmental impacts, including but not limited to:
Certified F Gas engineers are required to install or maintain products that use refrigerants. Water-cooled systems do not require this.
The legislation around the use of refrigerants is ever-changing to conform to climate regulations which vary depending on location. Water-cooled systems are free of these restrictions.
Refrigerant systems also operate under high pressures (up to 40 bar). Water-cooled systems typically operate at 3 bar.
Refrigerant systems require the use of constant mechanical cooling to produce the cooling effect while the USystems ColdLogik Rear Door Coolers can operate with little or no mechanical cooling intervention.
Refrigerants are becoming increasingly expensive to purchase due to demand and restrictions.
