In grocery stores all over the world, there are millions of beverage chillers working 24/7 to keep all drinks cold all the time so that whenever a customer buys a drink, it will be at the right serving temperature. Although only a few drinks will be sold, the whole stock needs to be cold continuously. This leads to enormous energy waste and massive costs in electricity bills for businesses.

Then what if we could just rapidly chill ONLY the beverages sold and leave the rest at room temperature, consuming no electricity at all?

How does V-Chiller© provide a solution?

① RETAIL: INCREASING SALES

The problem with retail fridges is that the frequent opening and closing of cooler doors warms up the cold stock. It also takes several hours to cool beverages, and so customers usually have to reach into the last row to get a cold beverage.

CONSTANT COOLING

Always at the right serving temperature

Energy-saving and eco-friendly

② Saving The Planet: V-Chiller© Vs. Other Refrigerants

Fluorinated gases, on which current cooling technology depends, will phase out completely and soon, according to the Paris Agreement and the Kigali Amendment. There needs to be an alternative refrigerant by the time fluorinated refrigerants are no longer available.

③ ENERGY SAVING: V-CHILLER VS. RETAIL FRIDGES

V-Chiller

  • Energy consumption only when a cool beverage is demanded, which makes for no thermal leaks
  • No energy consumption when there are no sales

Retail Fridges

  • Constant energy waste from thermal leaks
  • Constant energy usage, with or without sales

Customers
