Golden Pantry Food Stores

Emerson ran a demonstration of its Site Supervisor facility controls in one convenience store of Golden Pantry Food Stores. By controlling the store's HVAC, refrigeration and lighting, they were able to achieve a total of 10% in monthly energy savings.

A leading supermarket chain in Canada wanted to reduce the energy consumption of their glass doors while maintaining product visibility and heater asset life. They achieved both by using Emerson's Anti-Condensate Heater Controllers to modulate case door heaters according to ambient dewpoint.
Site Manager
A regional convenience store chain with over 500 stores needed to efficiently manage the operations of their dispersed network of retail stores from a central location. ProAct's Site Manager enterprise management application provided a highly effective solution.
Setpoint Management
Equipment setpoints often return to non-optimized levels as soon as six months after commissioning, eliminating much of the savings. To prevent this eventual loss of efficiency, the client needs a way to monitor and continuously optimize stores to their original levels.
Seeing rooftop HVAC units as a source of significant energy consumption in the stores, Emerson devised an energy reduction strategy using variable frequency drives to facilitate modulation strategies for fan motors in 78 California stores.
Demand Response
Demand Response programs are offered by utility companies as a means of lowering energy consumption during periods of peak electricity demand. Emerson worked with Stater Bros. to identify their energy shed potential, develop load shed strategies, and create load shed schedules.
In just one month in the winter of 2012, the two stores with Emerson’s MultiFlex Rooftop Control Board with pulse capabilities saved 4,480 therms, all while minimizing rapid compressor cycling.
Food loss
Emerson’s ProAct™ Service Center monitored and triaged refrigeration alarms 24x7. The Alarm Management program enabled the stores to significantly reduce their food loss expenses, saving over $30,000 in eight months.
Smart Dispatch
Every maintenance dispatch and request for service call costs money, either directly in time and labor or indirectly via higher negotiated contract prices. The Smart Dispatch service reduces these costs by optimizing maintenance dispatches and remotely resolving select events.


Condition Based Maintenance
Condition Based Maintenance: Putting predictive maintenance algorithms to work to optimize asset maintenance and performance in supermarket refrigeration.
 Internet Connectivity of Control System
As market demands grow, the key is to delicately combine the functionality and information from older control systems in the stores today with advanced functionalities such as food quality and predictive maintenance programs. These programs can enhance the functionality of today’s control systems without incurring the high cost of a retrofit of an entire stores control systems.
Optimum Refrigeration Control with E2
State of the art digital refrigeration controllers manufactured and marketed by Computer Process Controls (CPC), under the “E2” name are used to control modern supermarket refrigeration systems. This family of refrigeration controllers was designed to provide precise refrigerated product temperature control while minimizing refrigeration system energy and maintenance expenses.
