E2V-Z & ExV sistema

CAREL has extended its offering of electronic expansion valves with the addition of ExV-Z, the new family featuring just one valve body for all sizes, with significant results in terms of simplification and improved usability.
To further improve usability and simplify installation, especially in CO2 applications, a new valve has been designed in which the refrigerant expansion section is separate from the body connected to the piping.

The main features of the valve - in addition to stepper motor technology that ensures very precise, stable and reliable refrigerant flow control - are a replaceable built-in filter that simplifies inspection, and the use of a new stator with the highest degree of protection (IP69K), allowing installation in environments with extreme temperature and humidity conditions. CAREL’s range of valves continues to grow. Consolidated experience and know-how are combined with continuous research and development to provide increasingly efficient and high-performance solutions.

The ExV family valves, together with their control systems, represent the first example in the world of using sophisticated stepper motor technology in refrigeration applications.

The first Heos sistema installation in South Africa

Opened in April 2016, the Berliner Continental Butchery & Bakery is the third store managed by the Jerichevic family in Johannesburg, and the first Heos sistema installation in South Africa.
Heos sistema is the high-efficiency solution designed by CAREL for the retail business.
It represents a new way of constructing refrigeration systems, using plug-in cabinets fitted with DC compressors, electronic expansion valves and advanced controllers.
A water loop carries the heat due to condensation outside of the store.
The water loop is a closed water circuit that takes away the heat of condensation generated by the refrigeration units installed on the cold rooms and cabinets.
This system in particular comprises:
• a water circuit that carries heat away from the condensers to another place
• a dry cooler that transfers the heat outside.
All the heat produced by the refrigeration units is exchanged by the dry cooler, without differences in operation between summer and winter. This total free cooling is the solution that maximizes energy saving.

CAREL and Insulated Structures worked together on this project, sharing several different objectives, such as cost reduction and faster installation, increased energy efficiency and maximum food quality.

The main advantages of the solution are:
• lower running costs
• higher system reliability
• fine cabinet temperature control

The store comprises 15 medium temperature cabinets and 3 cold rooms, covering a surface area of around 430 m2, and with a total cooling capacity of 73 kW.
This system uses two different Heos sistema configurations.
In standalone mode, each unit has its own compressor and condenser, meaning the cabinet is completely independent and only shares the cooling water loop with the rest of the system. In multi-evaporator mode, the condenser is shared by several evaporators on different cabinets, each fitted with their own expansion valve: from the viewpoint of the electronics, the system is in this case managed in master/slave mode. The installation in South Africa features 15 standalone units and one multi-evaporator cabinet served by three units. The first configuration is ideal for maximising energy performance and system benefits, allowing the possibility to use true plug & play units (quick and easy maintenance). The second, on the other hand, responds to specific needs, such as limits in the layout and smaller-sized evaporators, for example in the delicatessen showcases.

The fundamental benefits of this system are: 

High efficiency
• Variable speed DC compressor and electronic expansion valve
• Wide range of modulation
• Maximum energy efficiency at part loads

Flexibility
• Plug-in units that simplify changes to the layout
• Larger selling area 

Easy installation and maintenance
• Units tested and optimized in the factory
• Continuous monitoring of operating conditions
• Advanced algorithms for preventive diagnostics

Environmentally-friendly
• Lower refrigerant charge (no long copper pipes)
• Less refrigerant leaks (no welding in the field)

CAREL PlantVisorPRO provides also complete control of the system in every stage of operation:
• Start-up –centralized configuration of all the parameters;
• Daily operation – data logging, reports, activity scheduling;
• Maintenance – remote access and automatic response.

Specifically, efficient system management is guaranteed by:
• Optimisation of system performance
• Data analysis
• Alarm management 

As concerns system supervision, alongside the consolidated PVPRO, a new mobile ready local supervisor is also available: boss. Designed for medium-sized and large systems, boss can be used on any mobile device, and thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, can access the supervisor without requiring any other network infrastructure.

About us

Company details

CAREL is a world leader in control solutions for air-conditioning, refrigeration and heating, and systems for humidification and evaporative cooling. We design our products to bring energy savings and reduce the environmental impact of machinery and systems. Our solutions are used in commercial, industrial and residential applications.
                             
We recognize environmental issues as a corporate priority
Francesco Nalini, CAREL Group Managing Director
Our mission of high efficiency solutions summarises the model that CAREL has adopted, both the starting point and the final objective that enclose the entire process, from conception to production and marketing of our systems.
As an innovative consultant and technological partner, CAREL anticipates market requirements, proposing energy efficient solutions that guarantee the highest performance.
Continual improvement is our modus operandi, the process that allows us to achieve a certain standard without this ever representing a limit, rather progressively exceeding it and subsequently defining another at a higher level.
Research, innovation and technology are the keys to our success: for more than forty years, customer needs have been the at the centre of our design work, so as to offer elements of differentiation in terms of both functions and appearance.
The Group’s strength lies in integration between different contexts; its overall vision, wide-ranging experience and skills allow us to go beyond the boundaries of individual products and represent a single partner capable of identifying integrated solutions.
 
Innovation as a business model
Research & Development are the heart of our commitment. A total of 7% of consolidated sales is reinvested in Research & Development, in order to anticipate customer needs and supply advanced solutions. A further 3% of sales is regularly invested in production process technology, so as to ensure ongoing improvement and growth. CAREL also operates two research laboratories, one focused on thermodynamics and the other on humidification, true points of excellence in their respective fields.
Out of the Group’s more than 1,100 staff, 18% are employed in Research & Development, a number that reaches almost 25% when considering the designers and technical personnel working at our Italian headquarters. Moreover, 55% of all our employees are university graduates, with an average age of 37, confirming our continuous investments in human resources, above all young people, going against the norm both nationally and internationally.
Training is another area where we devote significant resources, applied to all areas of the company with the aim of developing our personnel, both in terms of soft skills and technical competencies.

Endless reliability

Our responsibility towards our customers goes well beyond the value of our sales. The products we develop are in fact components that account for approximately 2 to 10% of the value of our customers’ finished products, depending on the application
Moreover, being components that are difficult to source elsewhere, we have adopted a disaster recovery system that involves at least two production sites for the majority of our products. This means we can guarantee the supply of our components even in extreme situations.

The taste of natural growth
Founded in 1973, CAREL today has consolidated sales of 203,5 million euros (13% more than in 2014). Around 80% of sales are from exports, through an extensive sales and customer support network. Specifically, we have operations in the Americas (North, Central and South), Asia Pacific, Africa and Europe; we have 19 fully-owned subsidiaries and 7 production sites, in addition to partners and distributors in a further 75 countries.
We serve more than 4,000 customers, with 6,200 active products and annual production of more than 7 million units.
