Denmark-based company to add predictive maintenance technology to cloud-based services for food retail professionals
MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Dec. 18, 2020 – Honeywell today announced that Danfoss, a global provider of refrigeration solutions will incorporate Honeywell’s proprietary Smart Refrigeration Solution (SRS) into its cloud-based platform. The SRS system, which uses thermodynamic and refrigeration-based algorithms to review and analyze commercial refrigeration data, will provide Danfoss customers with a solution that will enable energy savings, and improved refrigeration system performance.
Using predictive and preventative analytics, the SRS system recommends specific adjustments for the customer to save money by reducing energy spend and avoiding unplanned maintenance while improving case performance. The innovative system was developed by Honeywell whose environmentally preferable solutions include Solstice N40, the world’s most widely adopted, LGWP replacement refrigerant for R-404A in the supermarket industry, with more than 30,000 installations in supermarkets globally.
Danfoss will incorporate the SRS system into its newly launched Alsense™ IoT platform, which provides food retail professionals with intuitive software tools and data-driven, expert-enabled insights to optimize operational efficiency, refrigeration asset performance, and energy efficiency.
“The Smart Refrigeration Solution goes beyond the traditional monitoring systems that primarily provide data alerts and alarms by proactively identifying operating issues and providing actionable insights to fix them. This improves overall refrigeration system performance and reduces energy consumption,” said Chris LaPietra, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Stationary Refrigerants. “Given Honeywell’s position as a leader in refrigeration technology with deep domain expertise, this solution was optimal for Danfoss, a leading end-to-end refrigeration controls player with natural access to its controller technology, and will give customers better access to optimize store performance.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the Smart Refrigeration Solution and incorporate it into our Alsense™ cloud-based services. We are now putting predictive maintenance in action allowing the food retail industry to prevent unplanned cooling system downtime and inefficiencies in energy consumption.” says Jürgen Fischer, President of Danfoss Cooling Segment. “Combined with Alsense, the digital solution will provide both retailers and service providers with key insights and recommendations of how to optimize refrigeration systems which will enable them to pro-actively reduce and bundle unplanned maintenance and hence reduce maintenance costs.”
Based in Denmark, Danfoss is a global manufacturer of technologies used for cooling, air conditioning, heating, controlling electric motors, mobile equipment and many more. Danfoss’ solutions meet the need for energy-efficient infrastructure, connected systems, and integration of renewable energy.
Honeywell is a world leader in the development, manufacture and supply of refrigerants that are sold worldwide under the Solstice® and Genetron® brand names for a range of applications, including refrigeration, building and automobile air conditioning. Honeywell and its suppliers have completed a $900 million investment program in research and development, and new capacity based on Honeywell’s Solstice hydrofluorolefin technology. Worldwide adoption of Solstice products has resulted in the reduction of more than 200 million tons of CO2e, the equivalent of removing more than 40 million cars from the road.
