BRUGINE, Italy, 29 September 2022: CAREL said it will be presenting innovative solutions for increasing the energy efficiency and improving the performance of refrigeration systems at the upcoming Chillventa, from October 11 and 13 in Nuremberg, Germany.
Making the announcement through a Press release, CAREL said the events that have shaped the last two years have brought about changes in many aspects of our daily life, directly and indirectly accelerating the trend of greater awareness of the key role that food quality, cost saving, environmental impact and the value of time have in people’s lives. In refrigeration systems, more aware technological choices can have a significant impact on energy consumption and food storage and, therefore, become a positive factor for change in this crucial sector, CAREL pointed out.
In order to support the drive to reduce energy consumption, guaranteeing complete management of refrigeration systems with the focus on energy efficiency and performance optimisation, CAREL said it has developed a centralised systems solution, which is based on DC technology applied to both condensing units (Hecu solution) and units with rotary compressors (Multi DC solution). Synchronised operation of the variable-speed BLDC compressor with the inverter and the electronic valve allows continuous modulation of performance, meeting the load requirements of every refrigeration unit while adapting to specific daily and seasonal variability, CAREL said.
According to CAREL, for commercial refrigeration applications, complete unit management is ensured by the MPX and Heos solutions – electronic controllers developed to guarantee stable unit control temperature and integrated operation of modulating devices. All these controllers offer a high level of certification, making them suitable for incorporation into units that use flammable refrigerants (A3), CAREL said. Embedded NFC and Bluetooth connectivity respond to the need for extended and simplified usability, through the use of apps developed specifically for interaction with the unit, it added.
CAREL said connectivity revolutionises the way that technical personnel and users interact with refrigeration units, and all the functions used by the control system to manage a reliable and efficient compressor rack also need to be available remotely. CAREL said it has developed the uRack controller to meet all these needs of compressor racks, facilitating operation and improving performance through interaction with the APPLICA mobile app and connection to CAREL supervisory systems, for remote monitoring and performance optimisation throughout the system life cycle.
According to CAREL, installation, commissioning and maintenance are crucial links in the “cold chain”, operations that need to be managed effectively and often urgently. CAREL said it aims to revolutionise the traditional approach that involves difficult, costly and time-consuming procedures for installers, by making troubleshooting and configuration in the field extremely simple, fast and, above all, connected. The new iJW refrigeration controller, combined with the APPLICA app, CAREL claimed, ensures smart and intuitive commissioning for the main commercial refrigeration applications.
CAREL said it will be in Hall 5, Stand 5-306 & 308, at Chillventa.
