UK: Pastorfrigor GB has developed and patented a technology which it says will make integral refrigeration a more viable option for retailers.
The Genova Ecovision MCT is a low-front glass door integral multideck that features a micro-channel evaporator. This means a smaller refrigerant charge and the use of smaller compressors.
Describing the benefits of the new design, MD Simon Robinson said: “This delivers lower energy consumption and less heat rejection compared to a standard cabinet, meaning it takes away all of the reasons why retailers prefer not to use integrals, such as higher running costs, noisy condensing units and heat rejection issues into the store.”
The Ecovision is a low front cabinet with 5-tier 500mm shelves, a choice of door styles to suit customers’ needs and LED lighting. The cabinet is available in 3M0 and 3M1 versions and available to pre-order now for deliveries from August this year.
A water-loop system is also available for the Genova Ecovision MCT.
“This system uses water via a plastic hose, a pump and a condenser outside,” explains Simon Robinson. “There is also the additional benefit that you need significantly less refrigerant and installation compared to a conventional remote system.”
Pastorfrigor says open multideck and freezer version of the Genova will follow.
