The Epta Group participated with its brands, Costan, Misa and EptaService, in Refrigera (stand B14-C13-C14-D13), the only Italian trade show dedicated exclusively to the industrial, commercial and logistics refrigeration sector, from 20 to 22 February. This event was a meeting point for professionals, industry associations and political and economic institutions, as well as an opportunity to learn more around the new role of refrigeration technicians and, in particular, on how to successfully tackle the challenges of a constantly changing market.
Epta attended the event as an integrated and reliable partner, illustrating its approach focused on natural, simple and ingenious refrigeration, as highlighted by the concept “In what way can natural refrigeration be as simple as it is ingenious? #EptaExperience is the way”.
Refrigera was the opportunity for Epta to promote EptaService, a service designed to guarantee maximum efficiency of systems and plants in addition to cabinets and cold rooms. It includes a rich after-sales portfolio, providing a first-class technical assistance, thanks to teams of experts who actively work with Clients, to ensure consulting expertise, retrofit solutions and remote monitoring programmes.
The wide range of systems presented, perfectly integrated with the rich offer of EptaService, will highlight how the after-sales services ideally complete the range of Epta branded products.
#EPTAbricks was showcased at the three-day event. These Epta branded refrigerated lockers have been designed to guarantee Consumers the highest level of flexibility, by offering a 24/7 pick-up service for fresh, frozen and dried foods ordered online during the day, through the stores’ e-commerce platforms. To add to the system, EptaService provides an exclusive remote monitoring service that is highly flexible and customisable to be able to connect to #EPTAbricks through remote access and analyse the parameters of the lockers, such as the temperature, opening of the doors or number of orders.
Velvet Costan, the range of traditional cabinets of the OutFit family, was on show at Refrigera. Showcased in the Design aesthetic, Velvet features rich options available from the catalogue, to mix together and furnish the area dedicated to fresh and ultra-fresh products strengthening product visibility. To simplify work on the cabinet, EptaService offers a new APP, available for mobiles and tablets, exclusively to field technicians.
The special attention that Epta focuses on sustainability was a central theme. The Group presented the FTE Full Transcritical Efficiency together with the Eco2Small pack. This system exceeds the limits of transcritical technology, ensuring high performance in any climate condition, up to 10% energy saving compared with a standard CO2 booster pack and 20% lower maintenance and installation costs. To confirm its excellence, FTE is part of the LIFE17 CAR – Carbon 4 Retail Refrigeration, financed by the European Union according to the Contract n°. LIFE 17 CCM/IT/000120.
To support FTE, EptaService provides the possibility of access to performance analysis from the web, useful for monitoring the system’s energy saving.
On show at Refrigera were also the Freeblock monoblocks and DropIn Air-cooled Misa both high performing and sustainable, thanks to the use of refrigerant R290, to satisfy an increasingly eco-friendly market. Finally, worthy of note are also the non-toxic steel-PVC plastic coated panels of the Misa cold rooms, which, thanks to several patents, certify the highest performance on the international market, with a thermal conductivity value of λ = 0,0205 W/MK. They also distinguish themselves for their reduced environmental impact, modularity and better food safety of the products, thanks to the Epta Food Defence antibacterial system.
