Energy Savings with The AMS Group Outside Mount Frame Retrofit


Grocery retailers are under pressure from rising energy costs eroding profits. In this project a 32 doors of reach-in
freezers were retrofitted with the Anthony OM Frame package to reduced energy consumption of the existing equipment
by 71%. In addition to energy savings, benefits also included improved lighting and attractive new doors with
larger glass viewing area.

Reach-in freezers installed over the last twenty years require anti-sweat heaters to keep the frame temperature above
the ambient dewpoint. The retailer not only pays for the direct anti-sweat heater power, but also for the indirect power
required to reject the heat from the refrigeration system.

Adding bulky insulation to existing frames would block return air flow. The OM Frame repositions the frame to the outside
of the insulated cabinet, which makes use of existing refrigerator insulation to minimize anti-sweat heat requirement
at the case header and sill. In this scenario, frame AS heat was reduced from 91w/dr to 56w/dr, for a 37% savings.
Adding no-heat Elimaator2 doors and Optimax Pro24 LED lights to the package further improves the savings for a
total of 71%.
