Emerson Climate Technologies Releases Tool That Helps Limit CO2 Emissions in Supermarkets
ST. LOUIS — Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc. released its Life Cycle Climate Performance Online Calculator for supermarket designers and engineers.
The LCCP calculator is a Web-based tool that allows users to compare different supermarket system architectures with various refrigerants. It calculates annual power, total annual CO2 emissions and peak power, and is also able to provide recommendations to users.
“The LCCP software will be a valuable tool for supermarkets interested in limiting their CO2 footprint and will be able to provide an apples-to-apples comparison on the environmental impact of a given supermarket system,” said Mike Saunders, director, end user technical sales and support, Emerson Climate Technologies.
The configurable tool allows the user to enter operating conditions in which to compare. Multiple system types can be analyzed, including centralized direct expansion, distributed, cascade, secondary and booster CO2. Refrigerant comparison can be made among R404A, R407A, R410A, R134a and CO2.
