MALTA, N.Y. — Price Chopper, Schenectady, N.Y., has implemented a medium-temperature, secondary-coolant refrigeration system at a remodeled store here, Hill Phoenix, Conyers, Ga., announced yesterday. The store, which reopened Nov. 11 after expanding by 22,000 square feet, uses Hill Phoenix’s Second Nature medium-temperature system, which employs a 35% aqueous propylene glycol fluid as a primary refrigerant. The technology allows the store to reduce the R404-A refrigerant charge by about 60%. “This store represents another step toward ‘greener’ supermarkets, and we hope it will continue to see sustainability standards in retail that will be emulated across the country,” said Benny Smith, director of maintenance for Price Chopper, in a statement.
