The school of catering has a dual function, to train industry professionals (waiters/waitresses, kitchens, bartenders) and to ensure that an adequate cold chain throughout the entire process guarantees the value chain for the end customer. For this reason, reliable and efficient units were needed. As a result, Daikin’s collaborating installer chose the ZEAS cooling units.
Technical and economic constraints of the project:
In this case, the main constraint was the reliability of the units, the high temperatures of the area in summer and energy efficiency guaranteed throughout the year.
For this reason, the installer chose Daikin’s ZEAS units. Three ZEAS units were installed to provide service to the storage rooms and cold rooms where dishes are prepared. A booster connected to a ZEAS system was installed to provide service to the freezing room.
Benefits of the proposed solution:
- Reliability: ZEAS units are designed to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the event of malfunction, an alarm is automatically sent to the installer/maintainer. Thus, response time is not lost.
- Energy savings: The reduction in electricity consumption is achieved by adjusting compressor inverter speed, so that it only consumes the electricity required to produce the required amount of coldness. Additionally, the Conveni-Pack system recovers the heat of the cold compressors to heat the store free of charge. Since these types of premises have extended opening hours, a reduction in electricity consumption is very important, due to the fact that kWh prices tend to rise and cost restraint is essential to increase the owner’s profit margin.
- Low coolant load Since 2005, in Spain there has been an environmental tax on coolants which have the highest direct impact on global warming . The Conveni-Pack system uses an environmentally-friendly coolant, R-410 A, which has a low environmental tax. Additionally, coolant R-410 A has a greater cooling potential than traditional refrigerants, for this reason, in order to produce the same power, it only requires half the number of kgs of refrigerant Less kgs at a lower environmental cost reduces maintenance costs by up to 70% with respect to traditional systems.
- Distance of up to 130 m between the outside and inside units. This made it possible to carry out the installation without malfunctions or performance losses.
