Hayward, CA

Domino's Pizza Warehouse - Hayward, CA


  • 106hp energy efficient Refrigeration System
  • Machine house w/ factory mounted aircooled condenser
  • Factory Piping stubbed out of machine house
  • Factory wired and Programmed Control panel
  • CPC computer with Remote Diagnostics and support
  • Yaskawa VFD Drives
  • Westermeyer Oil Separator and Kriwan Level Controls
  • Custom sized Bitzer compressors

Challenge


  • Addition to existing facility
  • Needed to add capacity while reducing energy costs
  • System needed to conform to UMC requirements
  • Wanted new system to be energy efficient and require less service and maintenance and reduced component failures.
  • Large product loss in the event of a failure required 24/7 monitoring and quick response time and troubleshooting.

Solution


  • Energy Efficient Refrigeration System, built by Advanced, Inc.
  • ACR piping stubbed through the box walls to provide single point field piping attachments, saving time and money during the field installation.
  • Factory installed emergency break glass refrigeration shut down and evacuation system conforms to UMC requirements.
  • Electrical control panel and refrigeration system components are factory wired and tested providing single point connections for field wiring.
  • 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


  • New variable speed, FortaCool® refrigeration system supplies power to entire facility at lower energy usage with room for handling upcoming facility expansions.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Andy's Market - San Rafael, CA


  • 48hp FortaCool® variable speed compressor rack.
  • 5 compressors totaling 48 horsepower
  • Roof-Mounted, insulated & weatherproof machine house
  • Roof-Mounted Condenser
  • CPC Computer programmed control system
  • Yaskawa VFD drives
  • R-507 Refrigeration

Challenge


  • Customer had antiquated refrigeration system consisting of 15 existing "one-on-one" compressor condensing units taking up valuable space, some in the back room and others in hard to maintenance rooftop locations.
  • The current system was creating a large draw on electricity, resulting in excessively high power bills and took up a great deal of usable space in the back room that customer wanted to use for temporary product storage.
  • To meet demand of store upgrade and support new cases to be installed, customer needed a new, energy efficient refrigeration system that reduced the electricity bill, while also allowing for support of increased demand from new cases, and saved floor space.

Solution


  • Install contractor, RSI - Refrigeration Solutions, Inc. removed 15 existing "one-on-one" compressor condensing units totalling 78 horsepower in the back room and on the roof and replaced the old system with a 5 compressor, 48 horsepower,FortaCool® variable speed compressor rack in an insulated, weatherproof portable machine house and rood mounted condenser.
  • To save floor space and allow for easier accessibility, the compressor rack was built inside of an portable, insulated machine house and placed on the roof of the store.
  • Combined existing refrigeration branch lines to medium temp and low temp suction groups.
  • Monitor, temperature control, compressor speed control and alarm to each system to CPC refrigeration.
  • Converted all systems to R-507 refrigerant

Results


  • Customer enjoys significant savings on monthly electric bill even after increasing demand from adding new cases.
  • Once unusable back room, now cleared out and used for value adding activities such as short term product storage and overstock.
  • Reduced service and maintenance costs on system and reduced overall time of service and maintenance from new ease of accessibility.
