CHICAGO - Heatcraft Refrigeration Products LLC (HRP) is introducing the new Smart Defrost Kitâ„¢, a new defrost solution designed to reduce refrigeration operating costs and increase product integrity.

"In the past, there has been no reliable way to discern when a refrigeration system needed to be defrosted. The HRP Smart Defrost Kit solves this problem by evaluating the refrigeration system and determining how much frost accumulation is on the evaporator coil. If there is not significant accumulation, then the Smart Defrost Kit establishes that the scheduled defrost can be skipped, allowing the system to operate at a truly optimized level," stated Jim Kitchen, senior product manager with HRP.

"When unnecessary defrosts are eliminated and fluctuating temperatures are reduced, energy costs are lowered and product integrity is increased."

Also at the AHR Expo, the company is launching a new line of air-cooled condensers under the Bohn, Larkin, Climate Control, and Chandler product brands; introducing a new hot gas defrost system utilizing a dedicated electronic controller; and announcing the addition of InterLink, a new commercial refrigeration replacement parts brand.
