A conference on the project will be held virtually on July 1.
The Budapest store’s transcritical system reduces energy usage by 10% compared with a traditional CO2 system, says Epta.
Five stores in the southern U.S. will use FTE technology to increase efficiency in warm climates.
The manufacturer made the decision after finding success with installations in the country.
Epta’s FTE system consumes 40%-50% less energy than an R404A system in a first-of-its-kind supermarket installation.
The Italian OEM will discuss its FTE 2.0 and ETE technology for transcritical CO2, and new R290 self-contained cases.
FTE system is expected to offer 7-10% energy savings compared to standard transcritical system
The Italian OEM has updated its FTE system and introduced an Extreme Temperature Efficiency (ETE) system that optimizes CO2 refrigeration in very warm environments.
Local Australian contractor AJ Baker & Sons installed Epta’s ECO2Small system at the store.
The transcritical CO2 systems cut energy usage 10%-20% compared to standard booster racks.
