Next Generation Refrigeration (NGR)
Building on the success of our best in class shelf edge technology, we have now developed an entirely new suite of technologies and cabinet optimisation tools and techniques which have delivered laboratory-proven energy savings of over 40% when applied to the latest conventional open refrigerated display cabinets (ORDCs).
The Wirth Research NGR technology represents a major breakthough in the performance of ORDCs, and delivers the following significant benefits:-
- Virtually eliminates cold air spill from cases, transforming the customer shopping experience
- Delivers measurably better product temperature uniformity, particularly for produce at the front of shelves. This means less waste due to product spoilage, and reassures shoppers that the products they buy have been maintained at the correct temperature
- Allows significantly smaller refrigeration plant to be specified for a new shop build, or significantly reduces the load on existing plant, and therefore improves plant reliability, particularly during hot weather
- Allows significant reductions in store heating due to the virtual elimination of cold air spill.
NGR technology can be applied to any ORDC and is available from a number of Wirth Research’s OEM partners
