Reihl Efficient LLC has a great new Green Refrigeration product on the market. The Cool Vap Evaporator Coil for Walk In Coolers is a major advance in Commercial Refrigeration technology.
I recently went on a tour of the Reihl Efficient factory in Michigan. The folks at Reihl Efficient have figured out how to maintain & even decrease the box temperature of Walk In Coolers during the compressor off cycle. This has huge energy saving potential. Cool Vap coils in my opinion are a breakthrough in Green Refrigeration! I was very impressed by the facility & the high quality of the Cool Vap evaporator coil assemblies. All models come standard with high efficiency electronically commutated evaporator motors. The panels & coil housing are several times thicker than other coil brands & the coil should be more durable due to it’s configuration.
Mike Reihl has come up with a fantastic idea on how to tap into thermal inertia during a refrigeration off cycle to maintain & even lower box temperature. Cool Vap coils have a custom built chamber that rests on top of the evaporator coil. This chamber is filled with a proprietary mass. This mass builds & stores cold energy during the compressor run cycle. During the refrigeration off cycle this cold energy can be released back into the box by cycling the evaporator fan while leaving the compressor off! The Walk In Cooler is able to maintain or drop temperature without running the compressor. Cool Vap Coils take Green Refrigeration to the next level! Independent studies have been conducted. One showed an electrical savings of 37% & the other showed savings of 72%! Cool Vap Energy Efficiency study, coil sizes & specifications available on manufacturers website.
The manufacturer is so confident in the performance of their Cool Vap coil that they are offering a Performance Guarantee Agreement! They guarantee at least a 35% reduction in the electrical expense associated with running a walk in cooler or they will compensate the difference for the equivalence of two years!
Cool Vap coils come standard with 1 or 2 EC (electronically commutated) high efficiency evaporator motors. The coils range in size from 7,000 – 17,000 BTU’s.
