  1. 1. 2-Minute Technology EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT REFRIGERATION
  2. 2. 25-60% of electricity in Supermarkets Restaurants Convenience stores is used by refrigeration equipment. THE COST OF COOLING
  3. 3. Energy efficient refrigeration can make a BIG DIFFERENCE on your electric bill.
  4. 4. Energy efficient refrigeration technology has drastically improved in recent years.
  5. 5. Energy efficient refrigeration technology has drastically improved in recent years. This is in part due to the new Department of Energy standards established in 2009 (and updated in 2014)
  6. 6. Why yes it is! And its energy efcient, so its saving money and reducing my carbon footprint! Is your refrigerator running?!
  7. 7. Are you tired of outrageous electric bills? Does your refrigeration system need expensive maintenance & repairs? Have you lost product because your system failed?
  8. 8. Are you tired of outrageous electric bills? Does your refrigeration system need expensive maintenance & repairs? Have you lost product because your system failed? Lets take a look at 5 simple, reliable solutions that will reduce operating costs, prevent product loss and SAVE A LOT OF MONEY!
  9. 9. Major money- saving upgrades
  10. 10. ECM Motors
  11. 11. Most refrigerators use evaporators with propeller fans powered by SHADED POLE MOTORS
  12. 12. These motors generate a lot of heat so the refrigeration system has to work harder to stay cool. Most refrigerators use evaporators with propeller fans powered by SHADED POLE MOTORS
  13. 13. UPGRADE TO: Electronically Commutate Motor ECMs provide the same amount of power as shaded pole motors, but
  14. 14. UPGRADE TO: Electronically Commutate Motor ECMs provide the same amount of power as shaded pole motors, but USE 2/3 LESS ENERGY
  15. 15. UPGRADE TO: Electronically Commutate Motor USE 2/3 LESS ENERGY GENERATE 2/3 LESS HEAT ECMs provide the same amount of power as shaded pole motors, but
  16. 16. Controls
  17. 17. Coolers need to stay on 24/7/365
  18. 18. Coolers need to stay on 24/7/365 but the evaporator fans do not.
  19. 19. The fans need to run at full speed when refrigerant flows through the evaporator.
  20. 20. The fans need to run at full speed when refrigerant flows through the evaporator. WHICH IS ABOUT 50% OF THE TIME
  21. 21. The rest of the time the fan is simply circulating cool air, so its speed can be reduced
  22. 22. BY ALMOST 75% The rest of the time the fan is simply circulating cool air, so its speed can be reduced
  23. 23. UPGRADE TO: Evaporator Fan Controls These controls sense the flow of refrigerant and reduce fan speed when airflow is not required.
  24. 24. UPGRADE TO: Evaporator Fan Controls These controls sense the flow of refrigerant and reduce fan speed when airflow is not required. MINIMIZING WEAR & TEAR ON THE FAN
  25. 25. UPGRADE TO: Evaporator Fan Controls These controls sense the flow of refrigerant and reduce fan speed when airflow is not required. MINIMIZING WEAR & TEAR ON THE FAN CUTTING THE FANS ENERGY USE BY 60%
  26. 26. OR
  27. 27. UPGRADE TO: Smart Controls These controls are connected to the internet and make refrigeration a breeze! With smart controls you can
  28. 28. UPGRADE TO: Smart Controls These controls are connected to the internet and make refrigeration a breeze! With smart controls you can MONITOR YOUR SYSTEM FROM OFFSITE
  29. 29. UPGRADE TO: Smart Controls These controls are connected to the internet and make refrigeration a breeze! With smart controls you can MONITOR YOUR SYSTEM FROM OFFSITE GET IMMEDIATE ALERTS WHEN PROBLEMS ARISE
  30. 30. Lighting
  31. 31. Refrigerated display cases typically use fluorescent bulbs.
  32. 32. Light output from fluorescents can drop as much as 60% in cold temps!
  33. 33. They also emit a lot of heat, which means the system has to work harder to keep the air cool.
  34. 34. LEDs perform better in cold temperatures and emit less heat. They also UPGRADE TO: LED Lighting
  35. 35. LEDs perform better in cold temperatures and emit less heat. They also USE 2/3 LESS ENERGY!! UPGRADE TO: LED Lighting
  36. 36. LEDs perform better in cold temperatures and emit less heat. They also USE 2/3 LESS ENERGY!! PROVIDE SUPERIOR LIGHT QUALITY & MAKE PRODUCTS POP! UPGRADE TO: LED Lighting
  37. 37. LEDs dont produce UV light, like fluorescent bulbs, so the color of your products wont dull over time. UPGRADE TO: LED Lighting
  38. 38. Door Sensors
  39. 39. hits the cold glass of a cooler door, condensation builds up and creates a foggy effect - known as sweating. W hen the warm hum id air from inside the store
  40. 40. Door frames are heated to prevent sweating. 80% of stores run the heaters 24/7/365 - but they dont have to.
  41. 41. THEY ONLY NEED TO RUN WHEN HUMIDITY=55% OR HIGHER Door frames are heated to prevent sweating. 80% of stores run the heaters 24/7/365 - but they dont have to.
  42. 42. UPGRADE TO: Door Sensors Installing humidity-sensing controls will help regulate door heaters so they only run when necessary.
  43. 43. UPGRADE TO: Door Sensors KEEPING PRODUCTS VISIBLE Installing humidity-sensing controls will help regulate door heaters so they only run when necessary.
  44. 44. UPGRADE TO: Door Sensors KEEPING PRODUCTS VISIBLE Installing humidity-sensing controls will help regulate door heaters so they only run when necessary. WHILE REDUCING ENERGY USE
  45. 45. You could also WANT MORE?
  46. 46. Add night covers to open refrigerated cases. Covers will trap cool air & reduce energy use by 40% - plus they can help maintain product integrity.
  47. 47. Install defrost controls, which measure frost accumulation & humidity and defrost only when necessary. These controls produce up to 80% energy savings for defrost cycles.
  48. 48. DONT GIVE YOUR REFRIGERATION SYSTEM THE COLD SHOULDER
