Smart scale energy solutions for cooling systems

Efficiency monitoring refreshes the cooling system performance

Refrigeration energy accounts for a huge proportion of overall energy costs in many industries. A small reduction of energy consumption leads to significant cost savings. Precondition for effective measurement is the knowledge about the system characteristics at different operating conditions. With our smart scale energy solutions for cooling systems we can help you to reach your targets.

Cooling system efficiency

For the evaluation of the refrigeration efficiency it is necessary to quantify the contribution of all system components and include this into the calculation.
Monitoring helps to:

  • Evaluate and run the system at the ideal point of operation

  • Benchmark the system’s efficiency

  • Indicate requirement of maintenance

System leakages

Constant monitoring allows you to detect trends and expose developing faults. A good example for that is monitoring of suction and discharge pressure to detect refrigerant leakage.

  • Detect and repair disruptions or leakages to run the system reliable, efficient and lengthen lifetime

  • Avoid system problems due to leakages

  • Reduce maintenance and unscheduled downtimes

Specific energy consumption

The exact measurement of the refrigeration energy consumption per product unit or per m³ and year is essential to assess the system efficiency and to optimize the production processes. The loads that significantly affect costs can be highlighted by analyzing the data. Furthermore the data are suitable for a carbon footprint evaluation.

Individual analysis required

Efficient refrigeration requires more than efficient components, it depends mainly on system configuration and operation. As refrigeration systems are often custom engineered systems, individual analysis of the supply and demand side is necessary to find the ideal point of operation.
Define the right KPIs which help you to evaluate:
This is the precondition for energy management and cost reduction.
