Daikin debut at Convenience Show
UK: Daikin’s packaged refrigeration and heat recovery systems are to be exhibited for the first time at the upcoming National Convenience Show (NCS).
Designed specifically for convenience stores and small supermarkets, Conveni-pack recovers all the wasted heat rejected from refrigeration units, and re-directs it into the building. Daikin maintains that Conveni-pack can achieve savings in energy consumption of up to 50%.
Available for either low or medium temperature operation, ZEAS refrigeration condensing units use Daikin’s inverter scroll compressor.
The National Convenience Show takes place from April 18-20 at the NEC, Birmingham. Further information at www.nationalconvenienceshow.co.uk.
