Embraco, a global provider of refrigeration technology for the entire residential and commercial cold chain and brand of Nidec Global Appliance, will be at AHR Mexico 2023, from September 19th to 21st, at the booth 2034, with its innovative portfolio of compressors and condensing units. This year, the strategy focuses on the Mexican aftermarket and the offer to this segment includes products’ with high energy efficiency, easy installation and maintenance, long lifespan, low noise and fast availability. The company news is that its Apodaca’s factory counts now on a local production of condensing units (CDUs).
For Michel Moreira, Commercial Appliances Sales Director for North America: “AHR Mexico is an excellent opportunity to network with distributors, wholesalers, resellers, refrigeration technicians, and local manufacturers and share with them our future proof solutions. Within 52 years of history, Embraco has a solid reputation for its complete portfolio of compressors and condensing units. These last ones, now produced in our local factory, guaranteeing agility and best customer services”.
Embraco aftermarket portfolio: different options for all applications
The Embraco aftermarket portfolio is composed of robust fixed-speed solutions which are available in R134a, and R404a refrigerants, and a vast range of solutions approved for natural refrigerant use, such as propane (R290), which do not damage the ozone layer and have a global warming potential close to zero. The following AM products will be presented at AHR Mexico:
EM: the Embraco worldwide best-selling compressor family for a large range of applications, from residential refrigeration to light commercial applications. These compressors are compact, efficient, with low noise and vibration levels.
F: designed to work in severe conditions and very well recognized by its reliability. They are ideal for light commercial applications, such as vertical displays and horizontal freezer, in situations that require frequent starts, with an extended application range.
NE: designed especially for use in commercial refrigeration. The latest evolution in this series is the NEX, which features improved energy efficiency, higher cooling capacity, with an increase in maximum displacement from 18.7cc to 21cc (in comparison to previous platforms).
NT: it is developed to address the increasing demand for lower energy consumption and noise levels in commercial refrigeration equipment. The increased displacement of up to 33.42 cc offers even greater benefits regarding efficiency, noise, size and cost, when compared to larger platforms with equivalent displacement. The latest generation of the series is the NTX, which features improved energy efficiency, greater cooling capacity, and an increase in the maximum displacement from 27.8 to 33 cc (in comparison to previous platforms).
NJ: the family offers the lowest noise levels in its capacity range. The series comes with an electric motor with internal overload protection and is ideal for cold rooms, ice cream machines, and freezers.
Variable Speed Compressors reduce energy consumption
Embraco will also present its portfolio of variable speed compressors which are increasing attention from food and beverage brands, due to the high sustainability requirements of the market for merchandiser-type refrigerators, such as energy saving. At Embraco's booth, visitors will see the models with natural refrigerants, such as the VEMT and FMFT models.
VEM / VEH: a wide range of cooling capacity for light commercial refrigeration comes up with more than 10% higher energy efficiency than equivalent models in the market, with an EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) of 6.56 Btu/Wh in Ashrae LBP, in low back pressure parameters. In the same conditions, their cooling capacity reaches 1208 Btu/h in Ashrae LBP, in 3 cc to 13 cc of displacement, with an extremely reliable start, even in low voltage situations.
FMFT: for commercial use, it features the best levels of energy efficiency on the market in its size and capacity category. Its versatility makes it suitable for appliances in Food Retail, Food Service, Medical and Scientific applications.
Innovative and efficient Condensing Units
Another part of the booth will be dedicated to the Condensing Units. Embraco produces a series of models, either on a standard multi purpose portfolio and specific configurations tailored for Food Service. Models are available in variable or fixed speed options, and with R290 natural refrigerant, but also legacy HFC refrigerants.
For AHR Mexico, the unit which stands out is the EDP (evaporative drain pan) version for Food Service, which has a replaceable tray to hold defrost water and has a hot loop coil through which the hot gas circulates to accelerate the water evaporation. According to Guilherme Muhlmann, Commercial, Distribution & Aftermarket Senior Sales Manager: “The condensing units have the advantage of being a complete solution for the high pressure side - with compressor, fan and condenser in a single product - reducing manufacturers' efforts in design and installation”.
