Danfoss celebrates 80 years

Danfoss-Red-LogoDanfoss celebrated its 80th year in business on 1stSeptember.

In a statement the company said: “On September 1, it will be 80 years since Mads Clausen founded Danfoss in his parent’s farmhouse in Nordborg, Denmark.

Since then, the business has grown from a solo enterprise into one of the world’s leading suppliers of energy-efficient and innovative solutions, employing a staff of 23,000 and with sales in more than 100 countries.



Gaining an early footing on emerging markets and a clear focus on innovative products for its customers is part of the reason for this.

 

Right from the start, Danfoss has had an international outlook. The company began to export to other European countries as early as 1939, and in 1949, Danfoss set up its first foreign sales company in Argentina.

 

During the 1950s, Danfoss established itself in USA and Germany, and when globalization began to pick up speed in the 1990s, Danfoss was prepared, with factories and sales companies in both Russia and China.

 

Today, these four countries are Danfoss’ biggest markets.

 

Niels B. Christiansen, President and CEO, explains: “The global market has been a cornerstone for Danfoss, long before anyone even talked about globalization, and this has provided us with an international position we can be proud of.

 

We were one of the first to get out there on the large emerging markets and have worked purposefully to build up good relations with our customers and business partners.

 

Going forward, we will continue to focus on our main markets and the BRIC countries, Brazil, Russia, India and China, while also putting more efforts into new growth markets such as Turkey and Indonesia, where we have already gained experiences.”

 

Danfoss throughout its 80 years:

1933:     Mads Clausen starts the company under the name “Dansk Køleautomatik- og Apparat-Fabrik” and produces the first expansion valves for refrigeration systems.

1939:     The first distributor contract is signed with the Dutch firm Itho.

1943:     The invention of the radiator thermostat means that room temperatures can now be regulated without unnecessary waste.

1946:     The company changes its name to Danfoss, which combines “Dan” in reference to the company’s Danish background with “foss”, which refers to the stream of fluid that flows through the valves and is regulated.

1949:     The first 100% Danfoss owned sales company is set up in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

1958:     Danfoss establishes sales companies in USA and Germany.

1968:     The VLT® frequency converter is invented, and Danfoss becomes the first company to mass produce this technology. Some years later, the frequency converter is used to regulate the speed of the AUDI conveyor belt.

1993:     Danfoss establishes a factory in Moscow, Russia.

1996:     Danfoss establishes a factory in China. Jørgen M. Clausen, son of the company’s founder, is made President of the Group.

2008:     Niels B. Christiansen succeeds Jørgen M. Clausen as President of the Danfoss Group. The same year sees the start of the economic crisis.

2010:     In response to the economic crisis and to the challenges faced by the company, the Core & Clear strategy is launched, since when Danfoss has achieved high sales and earnings again.

2013:     Danfoss purchases the remaining shares in Sauer-Danfoss, which the company not already owns, and the two organizations are merged.

Mont celebrates 10th anniversary


Mont Mont turned 10 years in May 2013



"We at Mont are humbled to have reached this stage. considering that few companies pass a decade and still exist.  Its critical because our customers expect us to keep delivering our services at a new level and keeping them happy. Of which we will strive to raise the bar and break new grounds.", elaborated Mr Ishmael Masuku; the Advertising & Marketing Executive at Mont.

 

Employees at Mont were also excited.  Stella, who is in the Sales Dept was over whelmed; "I cant believe I have been with this wonderful company for the past 5 years.  If it was not for Mont, I would not be so experienced in this Refrigeration and Air Conditioning industry, that is dominated by males. Im proud to be part of Mont".

Management is over joyed as well. "10 years in this industry and it feels like yesterday.  As we look toward the future; we want to be ALWAYS AHEAD FOR our customers', added, the ever-smiling Manager, Mr Smithan.

Air conditioning and R12 & R134a updates

r12 gas

 

 

 

CFCs like R12 have been found high in the artmosphere, where they destroy ozone layer. 





The home mechanic, looking at a can or two of R12 or R134a, may think that government concern over refrigerant is overblown. However, CFCs like R12 have been found high in the atmosphere, where they destroy ozone (since CFCs have been regulated, the ever-widening holes in the ozone layer have been healing themselves). In addition, R134a is 1,400 times as effective at trapping heat as carbon dioxide; a few leaks from a few cars would probably not have any serious impact, but there are an estimated (by the auto industry) 400 million mobile air conditioners out there

Europe is phasing out R134a due to its relationship to global warming. Carbon dioxide, the current E.U. favorite to replace R134a, is the least powerful greenhouse-gas, but requires high pressures, and is less effective. However, in the United States, the approved replacement is HFO-1234yf. This new refrigerant is dramatically less likely to affect climate change than R134a, and while it will not be required until the 2017 model year, automakers can get greenhouse gas credits from the 2012 to 2016 model years by using it. The new gas was created by Honeywell and DuPont.

R134a, which replaced R12, lives for around 13 years in the atmosphere before breaking down; its “global warming potential” (GWP) is 1,400. 1234yf, on the other hand, breaks up in around 11 days, for a GWP of 4. It was developed to meet European Union directives, which demand a refrigerant with a GWP of less than 150.

Whether HFO-1234yf can be used as a replacement for R-134a is still unclear, but it seems unlikely, as R134a will not be banned; instead, it will have a hefty tax which will prevent frivolous use (e.g. putting in three or four cans a month) and tip the balance for many customers from “frequent refills” to “repair.”

Many have complained about the corrosive effects of R134a and its tendency to leak out of automotive air conditioners much faster than the old R12, which was phased out in the mid-1990s. R1234yf was endorsed by the Society of Automotive Engineers and Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association; a Delphi executive wrote that it was “both a cost-efficient and effective refrigerant option.” It can be used with low-pressure air conditioning systems.

Before R1234yf, there were two major types of air conditioning refrigerant in North America: R12, "the old kind," and R134a-based, "the new kind." (R22 was used briefly as well in the early days.) R12 was dropped due to clearly demonstrated links to holes in the ozone layer, with dire effects for the future.
