NURENBERG, Germany, 28 September, 2022: Refrigeration technology provider, Embraco, speaking of its upcoming participation in Chillventa 2022, from October 11 to 13, said it will be showcasing its portfolio of products that aims to address the market’s most pressing issues – sustainability, energy efficiency, and technological solutions to solve current and future challenges. For that reason, Embraco said, its booth at the exhibition – at Hall 7 – Stand 130 – will have product launches side by side with the current portfolio’s main products, in order to give visibility to its complete range of solutions, for all segments in commercial refrigeration, such as merchandisers, food retail, food service and medical applications.
“For being the world’s leading exhibition for refrigeration technology, we see Chillventa as the perfect opportunity to show the comprehensiveness and versatility of our portfolio for commercial applications, and highlight some of Embraco brand’s main attributes, such as innovation leadership and the highest levels of energy efficiency in the market,” said Daniel Campos, Vice President for Commercial Applications at Nidec Global Appliance, a platform of Nidec Corporation, which owns Embraco.
According to Embraco, Chillventa will be the stage for visitors to have a taste of its future variable-speed reciprocating compressor for large applications. The VNEX will be capable of serving 3-4-door commercial freezers and refrigerators, with high levels of energy efficiency, Embraco claimed.
According to Embraco, its other compressor launches are the new Scrolls, now in R290 and variable-speed options. Embraco said it launched its scroll portfolio in 2017, to expand its solutions offer beyond 2 HP, extending it up to 6 HP for low back pressure and 13 HP at medium-high back pressure. The new models, Embraco said, add to the portfolio a more environmentally friendly option through the use of the ultra-low global warming potential refrigerant, R-290, and extra energy efficiency, through variable-speed technology.
“Variable speed is the premium level solution for achieving great performances and being one step ahead of the future market needs,” said Gilmar Pirovano, EMEA Sales Director for Commercial Applications, Nidec Global Appliance. That is why Embraco’s booth at Chillventa will have the brand’s main variable-speed reciprocating compressors in the current portfolio for commercial applications, all running on natural refrigerants (R-600a or R-290), the company said. They are positioned among the highest levels of energy efficiency in the market, from small to large sizes: FMS, FMX, FMF, VES, VEM, VEH and VNEX, it added.
According to Embraco, among the product launches to be displayed will be the two new versions of Bioma, a condensing unit line-up designed for low noise and easy access to components. This solution for cold rooms and outdoor applications can deliver 50% of noise reduction versus the next best alternatives, Embraco claimed.
One of the new models is the Bioma 5HP, powered by a variable-speed scroll compressor, adding this option to the existing portfolio up to 10kW of cooling capacity. The other new Bioma will come with two scroll compressors: a variable-speed (inverter) one and a fixed-speed one, the company said. The pair extends the cooling capacity of this product line from 10kW (5 HP) to 20 kW (10HP), making the installation process simpler for larger applications that used to demand two units, Embraco said, adding that both launches are also more resistant to rust, which makes them ideal for outdoor units.
According to Embraco, visitors will have the chance as well to see the new range of indoor R-290 condensing units for Europe, for use in applications such as under-counters, blast chillers and cold rooms. The models come with a set of new features and are available in variable-speed and fixed options to deliver the energy efficiency the application demands, Embraco said. “Condensing units,” Pirovano said, “have the advantage of being a complete cooling circuit, reducing the refrigeration equipment manufacturer’s effort in the product design phase and installation.”
