About our company - North American Refrigeration of South Florida Inc has been driven to provide the best in industrial refrigeration and mechanical services. We provide quality refrigeration services, parts, and maintenance contracts. Our construction department has proven itself as a versatile, quality minded, group of professionals.

Established in 1999 by Patrick J Graveline, North American Refrigeration purchased Southern Mechanical Contractors of Pembroke Park Florida and moved into their facility. After 5 years, and one name change (to North American Refrigeration of South Florida Inc), we moved to Davie Florida. We outgrew this facility and as of July 2009, moved to a bigger facility. As of November 2012, we are in a new facility also located in Davie Florida

We have had the good fortune to have customers that believed in us and have given us the opportunity to showcase our talents. We look forward to continuing to provide the kind of service that the food service industry in South Florida deserves.

Refrigeration company Danfoss launched a new modular generation of pilot and motor-control- led regulating valves for industrial and commercial refrigeration in September.

The industrial control valve (ICV) is aimed at the industrial- and commercial-refrigeration markets. The new platform meets the increasing demand for high-pressure, reliable and competitive valves in the industrial-refrigeration market. The modular ICV concept is available in mechanical pilot-operated (ICS) and digital actuator-operated (ICM) configurations. The design consists of three parts: a valve body, a function module and a top cover. Each part is available in several varieties that can be combined according to customer needs. The ICV platform is based on a common valve-body design. The entire operating function, which is built as a module, is changeable with a simple removal of the top cover. The modular concept simplifies and improves valve serviceability. The system of interchangeable function modules and top covers gives flexibility in creating numerous configuration possibilities.

The ICS valves are pilot-operated, whereas the ICM valves are driven directly by a magnetically coupled digital actuator. The hermetically sealed magnetic coupling further eliminates a common leak potential, but also allows for easy actuator changeout or even manual operation with a simple tool. The actuators, which are controllable with standard signals, are speed adjustable, which improves system control, and are easily programmed with a menu-driven keypad. The automatic calibration system in the actuators provides the ICM valves with high reliability. “The ICV valve concept offers superior operating performance, improved reliability and serviceability, compared to standard control valves”, says Danfoss Industrial Refrigeration president Palle Kruse.

“We have been pleased with customers’ and end-users’ keen interest in the valves and their participation in our field-testing programme.

“The experience has provided valuable input into the development and quality assurance.

“At the same time, we also have the clear feeling that the ICV is the product capable of delivering the solutions which our customer are looking for.” In combination with the existing Danfoss pilots and controls, the ICV range handles 5 000 of the most common combinations of control applications, capacities and connections.

A key advantage of the ICV valve is its approved 52-bar working pressure – vital when dealing with modern refrigerants, such as CO2.

The ICV concept satisfies the demands of Europe, North America, Asia and South America. It is manufactured in low-temperature steel and can operate in temperatures of as low as 60
