Commercial Refrigeration Module
Commercial Refrigeration Efficiency
The Commercial Refrigeration Module is a simple device that fits over the thermostat probe on a refrigerator or freezer and consists of a food simulant contained in a double-skinned enclosure. The food simulant mimics food temperature at around 10mm below the surface. It's like having your thermostat regulating the temperature by the temperature of the yogurt, instead of the temperature of the air.
So how does the Commercial Refrigeration Module save money?
The Commercial Refrigeration Module consists of a food simulant contained in a double-skinned enclosure that regulates the temperature by the temperature of the food, instead of the air. In addition to the energy savings that result from this, the more efficient refrigeration cycle leads to a more efficient unit, which then leads to a colder storage area. Consequently, by readjusting the thermostat back to its normal temperature settings, there are further substantial energy savings, without compromising food safety and quality.
Real World Testing
Numerous trials have been conducted globally to assess the energy savings that can be achieved by fitting the Commercial Refrigeration Module to the temperature control sensors of cold storage.
Each trial ran for a period of two weeks. For the first week of each trial the cold storage unit was controlling temperature as normal, based upon air temperature. For the second week a Commercial Refrigeration Module was fitted to the temperature control sensors. An electricity meter was used to measure the amount of electricity used (kWh) during each week of each trial. While reduced electricity consumption is an attractive proposition for both financial and environmental reasons, reducing energy consumption using the Commercial Refrigeration Module is not viable if the storage temperature of the food does not remain within legislative guidelines. For the period of each trial, therefore, the temperature of food, food stimulant (Commercial Refrigeration Module) and circulating air in each cold storage unit were also measured as experimental controls to ensure that there was no significant change in storage parameters when the Commercial Refrigeration Module was fitted.
