Energy Efficient Controller System
Fowler & Sons has begun installation of an exciting product. The KE2 Evaporator Efficiency (KE2 Evap) is an electronically operated evaporator controller designed to save energy in refrigeration systems. The KE2 Evap controller reduces the energy used by the system and therefore provides energy savings through precise control of superheat, fan cycling, reducing compressor run time, and implementing demand defrosts. It was designed with a quick payback and a life expectancy that matches that of the system. The controller pays for itself, then continues to pay dividends for the life of the system.
The KE2 Evap consists of a microprocessor driven controller, sensors, and an optional Electronic Expansion Valve (EEV). The controller’s microprocessor provides the ability to control the system with precision and accuracy not available with mechanical controls. The controller should be combined with an EEV to provide the best control possible. The system uses a series of complex algorithms to ensure the evaporator is providing maximum efficiency. The key to its success is minimizing individual component’s energy usage in the system. By controlling multiple pieces of the system, the incremental gains of each component are compounded to create substantial savings.
KE2 Evap can be used with new or existing applications, is easily configured for use with mechanical or electronic expansion valves, is not refrigerant specific, and can be applied to a wide range of applications. It is ideal for applications benefiting from reduction in product shrinkage and tight temperature control. It is great for walk-in coolers and freezers and is compatible with systems employing electric, hot gas, and of time defrosts. The reduction of total defrosts and many other operational differences will save energy on any system because it replaces the multiple pieces of a traditional system.
Fowler and Sons has recently installed this system for Ford’s Produce in Raleigh, NC. The goal is to cut down on their power consumption and get better control of their refrigeration system. We are pleased to say that we’ve been successful in fulfilling their needs to date. There are also incentive programs available through some power companies. Call us today (919) 779-4330 for an install of this great product and to help with your refrigeration needs. Or Request A Service now on our website.
