                                              ACTING WITH THE FUTURE IN MIND

                                              Your strong partner for all refrigeration requirements with natural refrigerants.

                                              When selecting refrigerants, we at Rivacold CI GmbH place a strong focus on natural refrigerants – above all propane (R290) and carbon dioxide (R744). However, as the market continues to demand these, refrigerants containing fluorine are also used.

                                              We, RIVACOLD CI GmbH, are responsible for the distribution and consulting of all products of the Italian manufacturer RIVACOLD s.r.l. in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland. RIVACOLD s.r.l. offers solutions for industrial and commercial refrigeration that combine technological innovation, energy efficiency and sustainability with high quality, reliability and flexibility. The company develops and produces condensing units with and without housing, hermetic systems, plug-in refrigeration units, split units, multi compressor packs, air coolers and evaporators. In addition to the stationary product range, Rivacold offers a series of units for transport refrigeration.
