Energy saving controllers and devices
20% of the world’s energy is consumed by refrigeration. Total Climate Solutions have a wide range of self-acting valves, electronic valves, regulators, system protectors and line components that can be installed into your refrigeration system to achieve impressive reductions in your refrigeration energy consumption.
Installing energy saving controllers and devices improves the efficiency of the refrigeration system. The controllers can be fitted into existing and new commercial and industrial refrigeration systems and plants.
Energy saving controllers also assists to increase the refrigeration system’s reliability and the longevity of working parts. They enable a more accurate temperature control of the products in cold storage.
Energy saving controllers benefits
Sydney Coolroom energy saving controllers and devices meet energy saving strategies by:
- Reduction in electricity consumption
- Lower maintenance costs
- Reduction in carbon emissions
- Extended working life of refrigeration system equipment, (reduced on off cycles)
- Reduction in compressor noise levels during off cycle.
- Works with electronic and mechanical thermostats
- Small & compact.
Refrigeration cooling cycles
Refrigeration systems maintain required temperature through a series of on and off or start and stop cycles. Most refrigeration systems monitor the circulating air temperature. The circulating air temperature measurement is how the refrigeration system determines when to automatically switch on or off.
Circulating air temperature generally may rise in temperature faster than the temperature of the products in cold storage. This causes the refrigeration system to work harder by running more on off cycles to maintain the correct temperature. The high number of cycles consumes more energy and increases wear and tear on working parts. In most cases the compressor is drawing more energy than required when running.
Refrigeration operating efficiency
When energy saving controllers are fitted to an existing or new system, the effectiveness of the refrigeration system’s energy consumption is the Coefficient of Performance (COP) is improved.
Most households today are aware of the energy star rating on appliances. The energy star rating is based on the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), used for cooling, or Coefficient of Performance (COP), for heating. This is the ratio of heat extraction to energy input. Super efficient appliances can earn up to 10 stars.
The overall efficiency of the refrigeration system depends on the main mechanical parts, their design and how well they perform together. The main parts are the compressor, evaporator and condenser. The star rating is determined from the measured EER and COP.
Total Climate Solutions energy efficiency improvement modifications and additions can be made to a refrigeration unit or plant to improve the overall system coefficient of performance (COP) which is essentially a measure of the plants operating efficiency.
