of refrigeration and the lowest kilowatts required per unit of cooling
(per ton), and the 920R separators perform with equal efficiency in all
types of systems including ultra-low temperature applications, even or
uneven multiplex systems, dual suction systems, low, medium and A/C
and during refrigeration load shifting/matching.
Officials also say that the 920 and 920R Series of coalescent oil
separators are compatible with ammonia (NH3) refrigerant systems.
“Temprite separators remove oil from the system and return it to
the compressor which means shorter compressor run times, reduced
energy consumption and the highest possible return on investment,”
says Tom Schmidt, president. “Our products help our customers minimize energy costs, prolong system life and reduce carbon emissions.”
Verisae’s software technology brings together
the concepts of big data,
mobile technology to
deliver solutions for
companies in retail,
utilities, telecommunications, manufacturing
and service management industries. Verisae analyzes data to provide
predictive, prescriptive and proactive maintenance and management.
Company officials will be on hand to discuss Verisae’s vx Conserve
application, which allows users to gather energy consumption and
expenditure information—utility bills and meter data—in a repository
that also includes location attributes and maintenance information.
Mike Parks, vice president, customer innovation for the Minneapolis-based company, says the application can help companies analyze utility bill information to uncover hidden discrepancies and determine
whether bills should be paid or escalated.
“Consumption anomalies and usage trends can be analyzed in the
context of similar facilities, making such comparisons much more
valuable,” he says. “When integrated with an asset management sys-
tem such as our vx Maintain, vx Conserve can also track the impact of
maintenance on the energy used by asset in your facility.”
In addition to historical information, Verisae’s vx Exchange service
enables remote monitoring of energy alarms, alerting when consump-
tion patterns exceed thresholds via a mobile dashboard.
Verisae is also sponsoring the session Using Big Data in Store Facilities
Maintenance at the 2016 Energy and Store Development Conference.
Zero Zone is once again a sponsor of the FMI Energy & Store
Development Conference. At this year’s gathering, officials from the
North Prairie, Wis.-based company will be talking to retailers about
how Zero Zone is ready for DOE 2017 compliance with even more
Officials will also be explaining what the new EPA regulations will
mean in regard to retailers’ refrigerant choices and responsibility, and
introduce Zero Zone cases and systems that are designed to help retailers increase profitability while reducing their carbon footprint.
“In today’s ultra-competitive landscape, traditional supermar-
ket retailers are being assailed from all fronts, including the increase
in small-format food sellers of all types and the expansion of large
European chains in the U.S.,” says Carl Petersen, marketing and adver-
tising manager. “Zero Zone is here to be a guide through all the possi-
bilities—from merchandising through refrigerant selection—partner-
ing with our customers for the long term as we grow together.”
Established in 1961, Zero Zone is a manufacturer of refrigerated glass
door display cases and commercial refrigeration systems for supermar-
kets, drug, dollar and convenience stores. With display case plants in
North Prairie and Waukesha, Wis., and refrigeration systems plants in
Ramsey, Minn., Zero Zone also manufactures industrial refrigeration
systems for cold storage, food processing, ice arenas and other indus-
