Driven by the green science and technology innovation as part of our DBA, Haier Biomedical has made breakthroughs in key technologies of hydrocarbon refrigeration. In the ultra-low temperature preservation field, Haier Biomedical has created the first energy-saving core series ultra-low temperature freezer. Designed with a hydrocarbon refrigeration system, the freezer’s refrigeration efficiency can be increased by 30%, directly driving the ultra-low temperature freezer industry to save 50% of energy.
Additionally, with a completely fluoride-free design, the freezer does no harm to the ozone layer and brings an annual carbon emission reduction of nearly 100,000 tons. As to cryo preservation, Haier Biomedical has created the world-leading -150℃ Cryo Freezer starting with the ultra-low temperature refrigeration system constructed on the basis of hydrocarbon refrigerants and frequency conversion compression technology. With hydrocarbon refrigeration technology as the core, the -150℃ Cryo Freezer is designed to use the new-generation fluorine-free hydrocarbon refrigerants that produce no damage to the ozone layer and little greenhouse effect, the dual-compressor four-stage cascade refrigeration system, and IoT technology, which has effectively improved the refrigeration capacity per unit volume of the refrigerants and saves 30% of electricity. The -150℃ Cryo Freezer is not only environment-friendly and energy-saving but also reliable and efficient.
Amid the smooth progress of the “dual carbon” strategy, it has become a consensus for the development of the cryo preservation industry to explore new refrigeration technologies with higher efficiency, lower carbon emission, and more energy saving. Focusing on the development of cutting-edge green and low-carbon technologies, Haier Biomedical has taken the lead in developing Stirling refrigeration technology and its application projects and has successfully tackled the technical problems of efficient Stirling refrigerator control and reached a leading level in the world in terms of efficient and highly reliable control, creating a new path for the green "zero carbon" transformation of the cryo preservation industry. As the industrialization of the Stirling refrigeration technology speeds up, Haier Biomedical will surely promote the medical equipment of China's biosafety industry to achieve green and high-end development.
