Embraco showcased its latest solution for supermarkets and convenience stores at Metcash Expo which was held in Australia from July 14 to 16, 2019.
Plug n’ Cool is a complete self-contained solution designed for reach-in applications in food retail, which reduces the store’s energy consumption with refrigeration by more than 30%, while improving cooling performance and food preservation.
The system provides a “plug and play” option that accelerates the installation process by 70%, and can replace the traditional machine room, avoiding refrigerant leakage and saving space in the cabinet and store.
Cabinets with Plug n’ Cool are easy to maintain and modular in design. Refrigeration systems are assembled and tested in the factory and are ready for installation.
The equipment has a competitive total cost of ownership and it can be used in different store formats, from small family businesses to large wholesalers, which increases in-store design flexibility.
Plug n’ Cool works with R290 (natural refrigerant), which has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and negligible Global Warming Potential (GWP). Embraco has a history of pioneering the use of natural refrigerants.
Embraco sales manager for the Asia Pacific, Herlon Eckermann, said the product is a good fit for Australian conditions.
“Embraco has a global vision but provides solutions that meet the specificity of each country,” he said.
“We believe in a portfolio that delivers value to the end user and have plans to expand our business in this market.
“We want to be the preferred partner of local distributors and small manufacturers with the goal to increase Embraco’s market share in Australia, mainly in food retail and food service segments.”
