Environmentally friendly refrigeration

With our products, we are ecological pioneers in terms of environmental protection, because almost all models are already available with natural refrigerants at no extra charge. In addition, our products are made of high-quality materials with high recyclability. Other plus points are the low cooling water consumption of water-cooled Unistats and Unichillers. These units require only about one-third of the cooling water of conventional chillers.

The Tango factory

The Tango factory in Offenburg's Elgersweier industrial area is often referred to as the coldest place in the Ortenau region. Read here what it's all about.

Sustainable and future-proof temperature control

Hydrocarbon gases are widely used in everyday life. Natural hydrocarbons are also making a comeback as climate-friendly refrigerants in temperature control technology.

Conserving resources from purchasing to production

The environment has been a focus since the company was founded. One of the first company goals was to develop alternatives to the then widespread use of fresh water for cooling. Another measure was the voluntary phase-out of CFC/HCFC refrigerants long before any legal regulation.

We are pioneers in the temperature control industry in the use of environmentally friendly hydrocarbons as refrigerants. Today, almost all refrigeration models in our current product range are available with natural refrigerants - often as standard at no extra charge. The fact that we take environmental protection seriously is also demonstrated by our company building. The Tango factory is an energy-saving miracle. consisting of solid concrete, triple-glazed windows, a thick layer of insulation and around 40 km of plastic pipes in the floor, ceilings and walls - this results in a gigantic heat exchanger with minimal energy requirements. With special thermal insulation measures and a concrete core activation system, we were able to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. In production, heat recovery takes place during the test run of our equipment, a photovoltaic system generates electricity ecologically, a groundwater cooling system saves water and the entire company building is illuminated with energy-saving LED technology.

In 2013, we successfully participated in the ECOfit program of the state of Baden-Württemberg and implemented or initiated various environmentally relevant measures. In 2016, we introduced an energy management system based on EN16247, which enables us to identify energy-saving potential even better and derive appropriate measures. In 2016, we were awarded the Environmental Prize for Companies by the state of Baden-Württemberg.

With our "Environment plus" action program, we are an ecological pioneer in the industry.

"Environment plus" action program

1980

First refrigeration circulators with hydrocarbons as "natural" refrigerant.

1982

First intelligent refrigeration thermostats with cooling capacity adjustment and water-cooled chillers with water-saving energy management.
