Refrigeration technicians work on chilling-, freezing- and heat pump systems with piping, and electric and automized control systems. Therefore it´s important to possess high competence in refrigeration technology, construction, behavior, and uses of these systems. Mechanics, electronics, automatics, plumbing, and welding is a few of the areas our skilled technicians must master.
Proff Kulde regard itself as a spearhead on the automation area, and in most larger deliveries automation is included as a central part and is important to ensure energy effective operation of a chilling-/ heat pump system. Control systems used in chilling-/heat pump systems is an important part of our technological development work.
