Service & Installation for Control Panels

Here at American Refrigeration, it is our goal to deliver the best service & installation for control panels on a timely basis with minimum system down time. Our experienced team of engineers and service technicians are factory and industry trained for installing and upgrading controls for all industrial refrigeration systems. Our goal is to ensure our customers receive personalized attention with limited interruptions to their daily operations including:

  • Food Processing Plants
  • Dairy and Ice Cream Facilities
  • Beef & Pork Processors
  • Seafood & Fish Processing
  • Poultry Processing Plants
  • Breweries for Beer & Ale
  • Bakeries & Snack Processors
  • Non-Alcoholic Beverage Plants
  • Cold Storage Warehouses

Cost effective food processing and distribution requires exact temperatures to be maintained from the farm to the table. A key factor in ensuring that the consumer receives only the best lies in the efficient operation of industrial refrigeration systems throughout the food continuum. Our engineers and service technicians can effectively maintain your system’s controls and keep your software upgraded to maximize up time with strict conformance to health and safety issues.

Upgrades to Existing

As a multiple brand provider, including Frick Factor and Vilter Distributor, we deliver the best solutions for upgrades to existing industrial refrigeration controls. For most of our Food & Beverage clients, more than half the operating cost for their processing and cold storage facilities is related to energy usage. With refrigeration costs consuming so much of a company’s annual budget, it just makes sense to identify control upgrades that utilize the latest technology for improved operating efficiency.

Here at American Refrigeration, our engineers and technical staff are experienced in helping our clients determine the most effective strategies for optimizing mechanical and electronic components for improved efficiency. Whether your needs include the addition of variable speed drives or an upgrade to an existing automated control system, we can give you a “big picture” view that identifies where energy is being wasted as well as recommending upgrades, such as automated equipment cycles for improved sequencing.

If you are considering upgrades to your existing controls, remote access is an important consideration. Remote monitoring can have a significant impact on the bottom line by reducing energy consumption, system maintenance, and your overall operating costs. This feature also allows for offsite diagnostic and troubleshooting to provide real-time analysis of energy management data. If you are ready to make upgrades that will improve your operating efficiencies, contact American Refrigeration for the best solutions.

Custom Non-Proprietary Platform

By working closely with our clients in the food & beverage industry, we are able to identify their specific needs and offer a custom non-proprietary platform for a controls package that results in improved efficiency, reduced energy costs and less maintenance. Closed systems unnecessarily hold a client hostage by denying access to program files while limiting the future options for a more cost effective expansion of their processing plant or cold storage facility.

Here at American Refrigeration, we believe in accomplishing our client’s objectives in the most cost efficient and reliable manner. Proprietary hardware  and software systems limit future modifications and system additions while making changes to an existing system more costly. By implementing a custom platform with non-proprietary components, future parts replacement and system upgrades are much easier, thus reducing downtime for a lower cost of enhancement.

An open infrastructure makes it easy to upgrade and modernize an industrial refrigeration system to eliminate waste, improve product quality, and allow for the implementation of process and energy optimization strategies. Even though your existing system may be “locked in”, call American Refrigeration at 800-758-6554 to learn about the alternatives. We have a proven history in the food & beverage industry for delivering cost-effective customized control systems for numerous industrial refrigeration applications
