Whereas efficiency, cost, ecology and safety are of categorical importance to almost any of today’s commercial businesses, large retailers must be particularly concerned about the runtime costs of their operation. Energy costs for the refrigeration system represent typically around 50% of a supermarket's energy bill. Therefore, supermarket operators have great interest in making sure refrigeration systems are designed in an energy optimised way. Service is another major cost factor in any supermarket operation. However, regular system service increases system up-time and reduces food loss. At the same time, it should also aim at ensuring that the refrigeration system continues to run at the optimum point for which it was originally designed. Copeland Scroll™
and semi-hermetic compressors
have been designed for highest seasonal efficiency at the actual operating point. Alco Controls provides control components, such as electronic expansion valves
, in support of this. The saving potential on the annual energy bill can be enormous.CoreSense™
is Emerson’s technology that unlocks advanced diagnostics, protection and communication in Copeland™ brand compressors, resulting in improved compressor performance and reliability.
