Remote monitoring for fridge plant

Glasgow, Scotland, UK: Star Refrigeration has enhanced its remote monitoring for industrial cooling plant users in the cold storage and distribution industry with data collection and plant performance reporting as standard.

The Star Diagnostic Solution is an off-site service for operators of refrigeration plant providing remote monitoring system and a live 24/7 link to Star’s network.  It enables Star’s engineering team to oversee all aspects of refrigeration plant operation around the clock.

The system constantly monitors plant performance with particular focus on cooling temperatures and power consumption.  It also monitors critical oil/refrigerant levels and equipment operation within the refrigeration plant.  The service works via a broadband connection, sending data from the cooling plant’s computerised control system to Star’s data collection centre.

StarSDSDistMarch2013Pic2Full documentation and reporting is a key aspect of Star’s SDS service, with the production of performance graphs and analytical data, including plant efficiency and energy consumption.  The remote monitoring system is also designed to alert engineers to any developing maintenance issues or faults, so that they can be targeted and dealt with effectively before any plant failure occurs.

The SDS monitoring system also features a 24 hour emergency call out service.  This is designed to alert engineers to situations that may require attention outside normal working hours.

Star Refrigeration Operations Director John Fraser says: “Star Diagnostic Solutions is a smart approach to industrial cooling plant maintenance.  With 24/7 monitoring, fast emergency response and full data analysis, SDS is designed to improve plant reliability and safety, boost efficiency, reduce engineering site visits and cut maintenance and running costs.”
