DUBAI, UAE, 14 November 2022: Daikin Middle East and Africa unveiled its new-generation Monoblock refrigeration system at Gulfood Manufacturing 2022, which took place from November 8 to 10 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Developed using R-290 and inverter technology, the Monoblock units are designed for minimal environmental impact and deliver excellent thermodynamic properties, Daikin claimed through a Press release.
The Monoblock range not only reduces power consumption drastically but also brings quality and speed while installing the product with minimal maintenance, Daikin claimed. The units are ideal for small and medium enterprises with cold storage needs, including restaurants and supermarkets, the company said.
Commenting on the launch, Sanjeev Maheshwari, Refrigeration General Manager, Daikin Middle East and Africa, said: “According to reports, nearly a third of all food produced each year is squandered or lost before it can be consumed. With the launch of a new-generation of Monoblock, we have reiterated our commitment to innovation, sustainability, food security and safety and marked it as the most pivotal moment for Daikin in the region.
Supporting the safe and secure supply of perishable foods from farm to fork, as we say, our innovative and sustainable solutions help businesses to reduce their carbon emissions alongside food waste, both of which help us to protect the planet better and increase efficiency.
“Cold chain solutions that meet energy efficiency and sustainability standards will be critical to the growth of the regional food manufacturing industry. With our latest product reveal – our Monoblock refrigerant solutions – small- and medium-sized businesses can enjoy our effective, reliable, and sustainable refrigerant solution.”
According to Daikin, the Monoblock enables businesses to manage their stock better and is suitable for both medium- and low-temperature rooms, sized from four cubic metres to 25 cubic metres. In addition to delivering high efficiency and energy savings, the Monoblock operates with minimal noise and ensures flexibility of business operations, the company claimed, adding that it is the first Daikin-engineered and branded commercial refrigeration unit manufactured at its Zanotti plant in Italy.
Besides launching its Monoblock, Daikin showcased several other systems at the show, including its AHT products with inverter-driven ZEAS units for remote application, which the company claimed, is able to deliver a one-stop solution for food retail chain needs. The company said it also showcased its truck refrigeration unit and single-screw technology, utilised in packed ammonia compressor racks, applied in various storage and processing facilities.
