Solutions for Food Retail

Parasense solutions monitor your refrigeration plant and other critical assets, helping you to identify substantial energy savings and providing early warning of breakdowns that can otherwise put chillers and freezers out of action for hours on end.

When refrigeration plant goes wrong, the impact on food retailers is huge. Without freezers and chillers, customers cannot buy the essentials they demand each day. And in just a few hours, the lost revenues from premium chilled products can be substantial. Yet even modern refrigeration plant provides little indication of how well it is running or whether problems are developing.

At the same time, increases in energy costs mean that refrigeration plant – which accounts for around 40% of a typical food store’s electricity bill – can provide significant cost savings when it is tuned to run more efficiently.

About our solutions

Parasense provides remote monitoring of refrigeration equipment, constantly checking that it is running efficiently and highlighting maintenance issues before they can develop into serious problems.

The Parasense system watches out for changes in how the plant is running and gathers data from additional sensors to gauge the health of different parts of the refrigeration plant. This allows it to detect refrigerant leaks early, to predict likely problems and identify specific remedial action.

By comparing energy consumption across your estate and drawing on our engineers’ experience and knowledge, we can also identify refrigeration plant and other assets which are consuming more energy than expected. By reconfiguring and tuning refrigeration plant, we can deliver substantial, sustainable energy savings.

The Parasense system keeps permanent records of operating data, energy consumption, maintenance activities and temperature readings from chillers and freezers. This is made available to your staff through a secure web portal for statutory reporting, CSR and contract administration.
