Haier Introduces Solid-State Refrigeration Technology
Appliance OEM Haier focused on performance when it endeavored to create a quieter, more energy efficient refrigeration technology system. The solid-state refrigeration technology is expected to be a major game changer in the appliance manufacturing industry. By leveraging variable displacement, the appliance can operate with greater efficiency and less noise. The compressor features one bearing that requires no oil, but is instead lubricated by the refrigerant gas. Fewer bearings reduces the need for lubrication. The solid-state-refrigeration technology will first be featured in wine cooler applications.
