Efficient control of refrigeration, lighting and air-conditioning in grocery stores ensures that energy consumption is automatically adapted to actual need.
Danfoss' control system ADAP KOOL® typically helps stores achieve a 20% saving on energy. For example, food retailers can manage, monitor and optimize all parts of their refrigeration system through integrated electronic controls that regulate the motors, the dosing of refrigerants, the defrosting of cabinets and many other processes.
The control of compressors and condensers is what generates the biggest energy savings in the ADAP-KOOL solution, with a payback time of 1-2 years.
Besides the energy savings, the ADAP-KOOL solution also enables food retailers to reduce maintenance costs and improve food quality.
