Emerson officials said its next E360 webinar will cover the challenges supermarket retailers face when retrofitting their existing refrigeration systems to utilize lower global warming potential refrigerant.
While compliance with regulations and deployment of an environmentally-friendly system typically drive the need for a retrofit, retailers are also seizing the opportunity to upgrade their systems to provide improved energy efficiencies, tighter setpoints, and greater reliability. The integration of a digital compressor in an existing rack is becoming an increasingly effective way of achieving all these objectives, according to the company.
The webinar, entitled “Utilizing Digital Retrofits to Achieve Capacity Modulation,” will be held on Tuesday, September 26 at 2 p.m. EDT. This presentation will explore the potential of digital retrofits, taking a closer look at the digital compression technology behind the architecture to explain how it provides the capacity modulation to improve system efficiencies. The presentation will also explore:
• Reduced compressor cycling for increased system reliability
• True load matching capabilities
• Tighter setpoints for precise case temperatures
• Significantly higher energy efficiencies than other capacity modulation methods
The webinar will also provide an overview of actual case studies of supermarkets whose digital retrofits achieved measurable energy efficiencies, tighter suction pressures, and less food spoilage. It will be hosted by Chris Raffel, lead application engineer, Emerson’s Commercial and Residential Platform. Raffel has spent his 33-year career with Emerson, which has spanned product research and performance testing, field support and training for endusers, OEM customers and contractors, and technical and sales support.
