Magic-Aire Industries Joins NaturalRefrigerants.com as Silver Partner

The Philippines-based company distributes HVAC&R tools and components domestically and around the world.

Magic-Aire Industries, a Philippines-based distributor of HVAC&R tools and components, has joined the world’s leading natural refrigerant HVAC&R stakeholders as a silver partner of the NaturalRefrigerants.com marketplace.

Magic-Aire was founded in 1994 in Manila, originally as an air-conditioning and refrigeration servicing company. Citing “strong market demand,” the company moved into the distribution space and today provides products from more than 50 brands across Asia, Europe and the Americas, including Copeland, Danfoss and Tecumseh.

Along with components and tools, its product catalog includes window and wall-mounted air conditioners, condensing units and refrigerant, which includes R290 (propane) and R600a (isobutane).

“Looking forward, Magic-Aire aims to develop its offering for natural refrigerants and calls on global partners looking for a distributor in the Philippines and well beyond,” the company said.

Supporting NatRefs

Magic-Aire is a contributor to the Cold Chain Innovation (CCI) Hub, which serves as the centralized knowledge-sharing platform of the Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines (FCC) project. The FCC project’s goal is to identify and encourage the development of low-carbon and energy-efficient refrigeration technologies and business practices throughout the Philippines’ food cold chain.

The FCC is a collaboration between the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Global Environment Fund, TESDA and ATMOsphere, publisher of NaturalRefrigerants.com.

CCI-Hub is responsible for sharing technical resources, training and knowledge and facilitating stakeholder collaboration. Magic-Aire has brought tools and equipment to events at the hub. In addition, Magic-Aire recently partnered with CCI-Hub to supply and install five solar chest freezers to support the fishing industry in the Philippine municipality of Carles.

Recent firsts

Thanks to the work of the FCC project and the CCI-Hub, with the former providing co-financing to the latter for natural refrigerant demonstration projects, the Philippines has recently achieved several firsts in natural refrigerants.

In October 2023, the country’s first transcritical CO2 (R744) cold storage facility – featuring Nihon Netsugen Systems’ (NNS) Super Green CO2 unit. – opened in Roxas City. In December of that year, the first CO2 blast freezer was installed at a food processing facility in Pasig City, replacing a 15-year-old ammonia (R717)-based blast freezer. That product also featured an NNS Super Green unit.

More recently, five R290 transport refrigeration units (TRUs) – the first propane TRUs in the country –were distributed to two cold chain logistics companies. The ECOS M 24 refrigeration units were manufactured by Austrian startup pbx.
