Connected food retail solutions from case to cloud

Together with forward-thinking retailers around the world Danfoss has taken sustainable food retail solutions to the next level through constant development of sustainable technologies and service concepts.

Danfoss Food Retail solutions offer high efficient refrigeration systems optimized for CO₂ refrigeration and other natural refrigerants. Danfoss components are designed to provide the lowest total cost of ownership, while at the same time reducing the carbon footprint of your supermarket refrigeration system.

Danfoss solutions not only ensure the perfect conditions for food in temperature controlled environments, they also help achieve near-zero downtime on store applications in order to improve food safety and reduce food loss.

Danfoss ADAP-KOOL solutions have been developed based on more than 30 years of close cooperation with the global community of food retailers through and more than 80 years in the HVAC industry. Danfoss continuously develops its portfolio of components, controllers and advanced algorithms with the long-term ambition to create net-zero stores or even stores that give more energy than they take.

As a market leader with more than 50,000 food retail installations worldwide, Danfoss leads the development of integrated food retail refrigeration control solutions. Our experienced food retail specialists are ready to help you finding the right solution for your supermarket.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂ } else if (isBigColumns) { CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂ } else { CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂ }
    CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂

    CTR 3-way heat reclaim valve is designed to allow full proportional control of the surplus heat from compressor pack into the heat exchanger of transcritical heat reclaim solutions, securing availability of heat and hot water. The CTR valve prevents pressure peaks eliminating costly system down-time and the risk of insufficient heat supply for store heating and hot water, regardless of installation size.
