A global company, specializing in innovation and refrigeration solutions, participates in the 14th edition of AHR Expo 2018 in Citibanamex Centre, Mexico City

Mexico City, October 2nd, 2018: From October 2nd to the 4th, Embraco will be present in the International Exposition of Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration (AHR) in Mexico City, displaying the newest product innovations and the most energy-efficient solutions in the refrigeration market. Embraco reinforces its positioning as one of the largest players in the refrigeration segment, promoting improved quality of life through unprecedented cooling solutions by exhibiting its wide portfolio for Aftermarket & Replacement, Food Retail and Merchandisers.

At the AHR Expo, Embraco will be presenting its new business approach – shifting from a product-oriented focus to a solution-oriented focus. “As we operate in more than 80 countries, we are able to understand the needs of our customers in every region of the world by offering a complete platform of compressors, systems and services where innovation, practicality and applicability add up to deliver the best possible solution for every challenge”, says Guilherme Almeida, Embraco’s Strategic Planning & Marketing Director.

AHR Expo Mexico provides a platform for industry leaders in Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Systems to showcase new product offerings and service improvements. This forum started 20 years ago as an extension of the international event of the industry: HVAC&R, AHR EXPO®. The exposition in Mexico takes place every two years in Mexico City and Monterrey.

Embraco will demonstrate its capabilities with some of its most important solutions, such as the FMFT Dual voltage compressor and Plug N’ Cool, a complete solution for the food retail chain and designed as a drop-in solution for reach-in refrigerators. 

Solutions Portfolio
At booth #1828, Embraco will showcase a portfolio for Commercial and Aftermarket segments through three different categories:

Aftermarket & Replacement:
FFI12HBX: High running model in Mexico, showcasing temperature range (low, medium, and high temperature) capabilities. Complete portfolio available for replacement from compressors to complete Condensing Unit solutions.

Food Retail:
Plug n’ Cool: Launching in the Mexican market. Solution for small-format grocery and convenience stores, such as cold rooms, reach-ins, and many other low to medium temperature applications.

FMFT413U – Dual Voltage: Fullmotion with variable speed solution for commercial applications, such as beverage coolers and freezers up to medical applications capable to work with voltage fluctuation.

EMC3134U | EMC3115U: Higher efficiency solution for commercial applications in a extended range.

FFUS130HAX: Introducing the newest F series compressor, offering all the ranges of the F series with improved efficiency and significant reduction in noise.

Food Retail
During the 14th annual AHR Expo, Embraco will introduce Plug n’ Cool, a cooling solution that provides a refrigeration "plug and play" option that simplifies the installation process and eliminates the necessity of an engine room inside the store increasing the merchandiser area. This allows the engineers from the refrigeration system to reach a faster time of operation. The modular design concept of Plug N' Cool grants a new level of flexibility for the floor plan design and layout of supermarkets and makes for easier and lower cost maintenance.

Plug n’ Cool uses the natural refrigerant R-290, which meets international standards. Plug N’ Cool has had positive effects on the environment, such as reducing the amount of pollution, while at the same time reduces energy consumption by up to 32%, which promotes a win-win scenario for Food Retail, OEM and the world in which they operate.

"Introducing solutions like Plug N’ Cool at AHR 2018 is a great opportunity to showcase our commitment to invest heavily in Research and Development and continue to expand Embraco’s portfolio of efficient cooling solutions for the refrigeration industry”, reinforced Kerry O’Brate, Sales Senior Manager for North America.

Embraco will being introducing the Fullmotion FMFT Bivoltage compressor (FMFT413U). This is one of the most efficient compressors currently available for the Commercial segment.
