CAREL will be presenting its offering of advanced, high-efficiency and high-usability solutions for Italian refrigeration specialists. The offering covers the main applications in the constantly-evolving refrigeration sector, in which cutting-edge technology is increasingly in demand.
The spotlight will be on DC Cella SPLIT, the new solution for cold rooms that guarantees maximum system usability and reliability, with all the advantages deriving from integration with the CAREL monitoring platform. By using innovative products such as Hecu, EVD ice and UltraCella, DC Cella SPLIT combines the high performance of DC inverter applications and CO2 technology with the installation simplicity of a home air-conditioner. An integrated system that guarantees real-time management of evaporators and condensing units, with the same ease-of-use as a traditional product.
Completing the offering is MPXone, the CAREL controller for retail refrigeration applications, featuring extensive connectivity options that simplify human-machine interaction through Applica, the CAREL app for mobile devices. The mobile device thus acts as the user interface, which thanks to the graphic and multimedia features means that the traditional integrated user interface is no longer needed.
Ample space will also be dedicated to monitoring systems for data analysis and collection, so as to provide simple and effective information for system optimisation and the definition of appropriate maintenance plans. Management of units in the field and application of optimisation logic is implemented using the boss range of supervisors, which support the property owner and maintenance team on-site in control and analysis of performance. The proposed solution can be extended to integrate HVAC systems, “smart” control of lights and analysis of energy, gas and water consumption, thus using the supervisor as the sole point of access for store maintenance.
CAREL’s participation at REFRIGERA will also see a full program of presentations over the course of the three-day event. Topics will include DC inverter technology for cold rooms, control using electronic expansion valves, optimised monitoring, and the use of adiabatic systems in refrigeration. CAREL is also scheduled to take part in the workshop organised by Centro Studi Galileo, with a presentation on natural refrigerants, and at the round table organised by Largo Consumo entitled “Retail and Catering: refrigeration technologies serving the food chain”.
“Against a backdrop of continuous technological evolution, as is currently happening in refrigeration, by participating at REFRIGERA CAREL aims to renew its commitment to supporting the main Italian players in the sector. This commitment to refrigeration specialists is also underlined by our proposal of innovative, user-friendly solutions aimed at maximising performance”, commented Mirko Travaglin, Marketing Manager Refrigeration - EMEA Region.
Dorin will present the new TRANSFORMER REFRIGERATION COMPRESSOR. It is a globally new concept of manufacturing compressors, where common main parts and components make it possible to switch from one configuration to the other thanks to minor variable and changes: the same engineering platform will serve as the base for both large sizes HFCs and C02 sub-critical compressors.
TRANSFORMER is a 12-cylinder compressor platform that can have different configuration depending on the application.
Ideal for industrial application, it brings to the H8 compressor, thanks to its SEMI HERMETIC CONFIGURATION, nominal motor powers ranging from 100 to 180 HP with a displacement available from 303 to 520m3/H .
By using the Transformer H8 platform, it can be realized the CDS8 MODELS. Their displacement from 160 until 210 m3/h and their nominal motor power from 120 to 140 HP, make them the largest solution ever presented globally for subcritical application in a semi hermetic layout.
The new models 120-130-140-150 VS increase our offer of swept volume, ranging from 4000 cm3 to almost 6000 cm3 allowing displacements from almost 350 m3/h to 518m3/h.
The Epta Group will participate with its brands, Costan, Misa and EptaService, in Refrigera (stand B14-C13-C14-D13), the only Italian trade show dedicated exclusively to the industrial, commercial and logistics refrigeration sector, from 20 to 22 February. This event aspires to be a meeting point for professionals, industry associations and political and economic institutions, as well as an opportunity to learn more around the new role of refrigeration technicians and, in particular, on how to successfully tackle the challenges of a constantly changing market.
Epta will attend the event as an integrated and reliable partner, illustrating its approach focused on natural, simple and ingenious refrigeration, as highlighted by the concept “In what way can natural refrigeration be as simple as it is ingenious? #EptaExperience is the way”.
Refrigera will be the opportunity for Epta to promote EptaService, a service designed to guarantee maximum efficiency of systems and plants in addition to cabinets and cold rooms. It includes a rich after-sales portfolio, providing a first-class technical assistance, thanks to teams of experts who actively work with Clients, to ensure consulting expertise, retrofit solutions and remote monitoring programmes.
The wide range of systems presented, perfectly integrated with the rich offer of EptaService, will highlight how the after-sales services ideally complete the range of Epta branded products.
#EPTAbricks will be showcased at the three-day event. These Epta branded refrigerated lockers have been designed to guarantee Consumers the highest level of flexibility, by offering a 24/7 pick-up service for fresh, frozen and dried foods ordered online during the day, through the stores’ e-commerce platforms. To add to the system, EptaServiceprovides an exclusive remote monitoring service that is highly flexible and customisable to be able to connect to #EPTAbricks through remote access and analyse the parameters of the lockers, such as the temperature, opening of the doors or number of orders.
Velvet Costan, the range of traditional cabinets of the OutFit family, will also be on show at Refrigera. Showcased in the Design aesthetic, Velvet features rich options available from the catalogue, to mix together and furnish the area dedicated to fresh and ultra-fresh products strengthening product visibility. To simplify work on the cabinet, EptaService offers a new APP, available for mobiles and tablets, exclusively to field technicians.
The special attention that Epta focuses on sustainability will be a central theme. The Group will present the FTE Full Transcritical Efficiency together with the Eco2Small pack. This system exceeds the limits of transcritical technology, ensuring high performance in any climate condition, up to 10% energy saving compared with a standard CO2booster pack and 20% lower maintenance and installation costs.
