Embraco broadens portfolio to expand in commercial refrigeration market
Company highlights new solutions in Chillventa 2012
World leader in the hermetic compressors market for refrigeration - Embraco has developed a complete portfolio for commercial refrigeration and exhibits highlights in Chillventa 2012. Europe’s leading trade fair for refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps will be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from October 9th - 11th.
Visitors will be able to check out Embraco’s latest high-tech solutions. "Our products can be adapted to various applications anywhere in the world. The models are compact, intelligent, silent, ensuring high energy efficiency and fast cooling, as well as being compatible with propane, one of the most advanced environmentally friendly refrigerants”, explains Natanael Kaminski, Marketing Director.
One of the fair’s highlights is Embraco Fullmotion technology which is responsible for increased temperature stability inside the refrigerator, by virtue of adjusting the compressor’s cooling capacity according to customer’s application needs. Thanks to the use of electronics, the variable speed technology makes the product quieter and reduces energy consumption by up to 40% compared to conventional technology (on-off).
One of Embraco’s main novelties in Chillventa will be the new version of the EM compressor, Embraco’s most sold product worldwide. The EM Extended was developed for vertical and horizontal display cases, surpassing the performance of the model currently used for these applications. The EM is 170 mm high, against 200 mm of the other compressor, lowering transportation costs. The oil quantity required to lubricate the system is also lower, 0.072 ml compared to 21 ml. "The less oil in the cooling system the better the heat exchange, which makes the solution more efficient", explains Natanael Kaminski, Marketing Director.
With a decade of experience in developing propane solutions, Embraco has expanded its product line for this gas and will present the latest launches in Chillventa. The main investments in this area are found in Embraco’s Slovakia factory, where the company focuses its product line on the commercial segment. According to Kaminski, Embraco researchers have identified excellent results in propane-based compressors such as high energy efficiency and their insignificant contribution to global warming.
