  • Factory installed emergency exhaust and shut down with break glass switches to meet UMC requirements
  • Reduced KW power consumption by 42%
  • Reduction of 120 horsepower
  • $132,000/year savings compared to conventional refrigeration system
  • CPC Computer programmed control system
  • FortaCool® UltraSite off site monitoring
  • Yaskawa VFD drives

Challenge


  • Needed to supply refrigeration to frozen food and fresh meat storage warehouse.
  • Low Cost of Ownership was very important to customer.
  • Large product loss in the event of a failure required 24/7 monitoring and quick response time and troubleshooting.

Solution


  • RSI - Refrigeration Solutions, Inc. installed new FortaCool®, variable speed refrigeration system.
  • Compressors sized for multiple suction groups (Low-temp, medium temp, and high temp.) all in one easy to access location.
  • Computer programmed CPC controller allows for easy troubleshooting and system condition checks with easy to read alarm codes and descriptions.
  • UltraSite off site monitoring capability integrated into system and put on 24/7 system monitoring by Advanced, Inc.

Results


  • The new system provided an overall reduction of 120 horsepower and savings of 945 kwH or 42%
  • Owner Al Santos says, "This refrigeration system and performance exceeded all expectations and is the only system I will consider on future projects"
  • New variable speed, FortaCool® refrigeration system supplies power to entire facility at lower energy usage with room for handling upcoming facility expansions.
  • Use of variable speed and computer programmed drives that control the compressors, reduces wear and tear on compressors resulting in lower service and maintenance costs as well as reduced peak demand electricity charges.
  • Integration of the FortaCool® UltraSite monitoring allows for constant off site monitoring and troubleshooting, leading to reduced service and maintenance costs as well as reducing product loss and response time.

Variable Frequency Drives


Yaskawa is the largest global variable frequency drives manufacturer with over 30 years of Building Automation System (BAS) and HVACR experience. Our variable frequency drives are designed for HVACR applications, which include air handlers, cooling towers and pumps, by combining reduced size and cost with step changes in performance and quality. The drive features for Building Automation Systems include extensive parameter selection which simplifies management of BAS applications for energy efficiency and closed loop control, industry-standard Hand/Off/Auto functionality, an internal PI controller and a Sleep function. Because all variable frequency drives (VFDs) are rigorously tested, Yaskawa ensures that quality and reliability are designed and built in.

E7 Drives have embedded Metasys® and APOGEE™ Communications. BACnet® and LonWorks® are optional.


E7 Drives


The E7 Drive is designed exclusively for Commercial HVACR applications. All features are designed for this purpose, including Building Automation communications. Metasys N2, APOGEE FLN and Modbus are embedded. Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and LonWorks are plug-in options. The drive is plenum rated for variable torque applications. Anti-windmilling, motor preheat, energy-savings, and PI set point control are standard. Many options are available.

New Earth Market - Yuba City, CA


  • 204hp FortaCool® variable speed compressor rack
  • 6 compressors totaling 204 horsepower
  • 27,000 sq ft refrigerated sausage processing and frozen food storage plant
  • Hot Water Heat Reclaim
  • CPC Computer programmed control system
  • FortaCool® UltraSite off site monitoring
  • Yaskawa VFD drives

Challenge


  • New healthy living store, focused on Green energy and being Environmentally friendly.
  • Needed to supply refrigeration to a variety of refrigerated cases and walk-in boxes throughout building for food and beverage
  • New building required system to be custom manufactured for all cases and store setup.
  • Compressor rack to be placed in back room so noise needed to be minimized.
  • Customer requested easy to read alarm codes that store personnel could understand.

Solution


  • New 67hp FortaCool® variable speed compressor rack installed in store back room.
  • Variable Speed system minimized noise levels by ramping compressors up and down by "soft-starting" allowing for low noise levels and a peaceful store environment.
  • Computer control program and variable speed technology designed to be the most efficient option available gave great energy savings to customer, adding to their goal of achieving Green Energy and remaining Environmentally Friendly.
  • Computer programmed CPC controller allows for easy troubleshooting and system condition checks with easy to read alarm codes and descriptions.
  • UltraSite off-site monitoring capability integrated into system and put on 24/7 system monitoring by Advanced, Inc.

Results


  • Energy Efficient Refrigeration system adds to store's efforts to use all Green Energy and be Environmentally Friendly while also saving a great deal on monthly energy costs.
  • Variable speed drives control compressors to ramp up and down as needed to meet the required refrigeration load, eliminating power spikes and peak demand charges.
  • Noise reduction technology allowed for system to be placed in the most economical place for the store which would not have been possible had the system been loud like a traditional refrigeration system.
  • Easy alarm codes and custom computer program allows store personnel to easily understand what is going on with the system and make educated decisions about servicing the system and store to avoid product loss and system degradation.
  • Integration of the FortaCool® UltraSite monitoring allows for constant off-site monitoring and troubleshooting, leading to reduced service and maintenance costs as well as reducing product loss and response time.
