Danfoss is Driving Transformation in the Cooling Industry Forward
Danfoss Cooling at Chillventa 2016
Nürnberg – Automotive engineering is widely acclaimed for its innovation power and for pioneering cutting-edge technologies. At Chillventa 2016, Danfoss sets out to demonstrate the equally strong innovation drive of the refrigeration and HVAC industry in the effort to meet current challenges of climate change and scarcity of resources.
Under the heading ‘Transformation starts here’ – Danfoss shows the importance of continuous transformation in the cooling industry. In particular, it will be highlighting aspects of digitalization and changes in refrigerants, as well as the development of products and professional skills within the industry. Products are getting easier and easier to install, yet ongoing training and staying up to date have never been as important as today.
Five stand areas
Danfoss’s stand is split into four product areas (commercial refrigeration, food retail, industrial refrigeration, and air conditioning) with one dedicated area for refrigeration contractors. This proven structure should help visitors quickly familiarise themselves with the various product/business areas.
The area specially designed for refrigeration contractors – Transformation of competencies and regulatory landscape in the cooling industry
Danfoss has dedicated an area of its stand for refrigeration contractors at Chillventa 2016. Contractors can visit this area to learn more about the latest technologies and findings related to the Ecodesign Directive and the use of refrigerants with lower global warming potential; they can also come here to discover a variety of training programmes to enhance their knowledge and skills. For example, this stand area will present updated apps that inform system contractors about the migration to environmentally friendly systems with lower global warming potential, and which train and support them in dealing with these systems.
The focus of this area will be on the new condensing unit Optyma™ Plus INVERTER with speed control, which is authorised for use in refrigeration applications with moderate temperatures and for the lower GWP environmentally friendly refrigerant R407A/F. The Optyma™ Plus INVERTER currently boasts the best SEPR value on the market. It can be used to lower operating costs by 20% to 30% compared to alternative technologies. It is perfect for cold rooms, display cabinets and fermentation rooms, and is suitable for refrigeration applications where accurate temperature and humidity control matter. The condensing unit is also designed for systems having more than one evaporator.
Another highlight is Danfoss’s calculation and selection software Coolselector®2. This software programme facilitates selection, the graphical display of pressure drops and now also shows the performance data of compressors and condensing units. All these features make it a complete selection and calculation tool for experts in the cooling industry. One unique feature offered by Coolselector®2 is that users can save projects and return to them to make adjustments and additional calculations.
Commercial refrigeration area – Transformation of cold rooms and food service systems
Sustainability, efficiency, food safety, reliability and connectivity are the drivers behind all Danfoss components for cold rooms, glass door merchandisers, display cabinets and other food applications. Special highlights in the commercial refrigeration area include the latest solutions for compressors, condensers, controllers and valves that are approved for use with the refrigerants R448A, R449A ,R452A and R290.
The latest version of the intelligent, multifunctional ERC 21x refrigeration controller is also presented at Chillventa. It can be used in combination with many different sensors, and offers predefined programmes for most typical applications, such as refrigerated counters, cold rooms, cases and other freestanding refrigeration systems, and its on-demand defrost function and integrated, intelligent evaporator fan control make for a high degree of energy efficiency.
Food retail area – Transformation of supermarkets
At Chillventa 2016, Danfoss will be showcasing the potential of its Smart Store solution: better food safety, lower energy consumption, integrated refrigeration control, HVAC, lighting, and smart grid integration. A special highlight is the complete Danfoss product range for CO2 refrigeration, including its brand-new ejector technology, which paves the way to high-efficiency transcritical refrigeration technology in warmer climates. The VLT® Refrigeration Drive will also be presented. It is being brought to market with improved features that can be used to lower the energy consumption of refrigeration applications by up to 25%.
Industrial refrigeration area – Transformation of industrial refrigeration systems
Danfoss is developing solid platforms for valves and controllers for industrial refrigeration worldwide, and is taking the next step by supporting the design and construction of complete industrial refrigeration systems. The brand-new valve stations are optimised for natural refrigerants, especially ammonia and CO2, and offer unparalleled energy efficiency.
Visitors to the Danfoss stand can discover the industry’s largest product portfolio of valve stations (ICF). They are available in nominal sizes ranging from DN 15 to DN 80 and with three, four or six modules made of carbon or stainless steel.
Danfoss will also be presenting a new series of pilot valves that are suitable for ammonia and CO2, and for a large range of pressures and temperatures.
Air conditioning area – Transformation towards more environmentally friendly solutions with high overall energy performance
Danfoss will be presenting its extended range of products and solutions for the HVAC industry here. The next generation of air-conditioning appliances are designed for new systems and system upgrades, and comply with the new requirements regarding overall energy performance. Special components for air conditioning systems include the new generation Danfoss scroll compressors with built-in IDVs DSH and DCJ, Inverter Scroll VZH and the oil-free Turbocor compressors, which deliver improved performance with low-GWP refrigerants. The ETS Colibri® will also be presented. The innovative ETS Colibri® has the shortest response time of any electric valve on the market, and is designed for precise liquid injection for evaporator applications. With four new models, the expanded range of Micro Plate™ heat exchangers (MPHE) rounds out Danfoss’s air conditioning range at Chillventa 2016.
Danfoss offers a complete lecture programme
Danfoss will be giving a total of 14 presentations as part of the Chillventa Congress programme. Danfoss will be covering subjects like the application benefits of condensing units with variable speed compressors, supermarkets in a new energy perspective, and the basics of temperature glides.
From 11 to 13 October you will find Danfoss at Chillventa in Nuremberg in Hall 7, Stand 126.
