XDX Innovative Refrigeration has released the latest version of its Mysticool Max valve, which can reduce energy consumption by 15 percent or more.

Over the past 10 years, XDX's patented technologies have been used by bakeries, entertainment venues, food manufacturers, process cooling, full service and quick serve restaurants, hospitals, schools and others to reduce energy and meet environmental initiatives. XDX products not only reduce energy usage, but also stabilize temperature to ensure food safety and decrease food shrinkage and spoilage.

The Mysticool Max features the best of XDX's X-stream and A.R.M.E.D. technologies and is retrofitted into existing refrigeration and HVAC systems. The Mysticool Max is lighter than previous versions, features a molded jacket that is insulated with a washable surface, and has fewer connections for faster installation. The latest valve is now rated for 700 PSI to accommodate newly developed refrigerants. Unit pricing and installation varies by equipment size and region of the country.

"Our new valve fulfills a variety of needs, for both food service operators and others who simply need to lower energy costs of major cooling systems," said Susan M. Foster, senior manager of sales & customer support of XDX. "Most importantly, we can help assure the safety of food here in the U.S. and abroad as we keep food fresher for longer, at a minimal cost and little or no upkeep."

Foster noted that numerous clients, including quick serve restaurants, major universities and entertainment venues have utilized XDX technology to increase major air-conditioning efficiency. Use of the technology similarly lowers energy use and decreases maintenance costs.
