Optimization Solutions For

Operations &
Maintenance

Keeping refrigeration systems running is a demanding, mission-critical task, where everything is an emergency, and nothing can wait until Monday morning. When things are working right, everyone takes it for granted. When anything goes wrong, everyone looks to the refrigeration technician to save the day. Let NRM be the sidekick you didn’t know you needed.

"Out-of-sight, out-of-mind" is often the maintenance strategy.

Nobody understands the complexities of modern refrigeration better than the front-line service techs. Every component has a role, and also creates a potential failure point. Extremes of temperature and pressure are the norm, and frequently, the whole system is held together with braised copper pipes that snake through old buildings--indoors and outdoors--in the heat and rain and snow. Not to mention, facilities often have “bad owners”, who may take a spendthrift approach to maintenance, allowing heat-transfer coils to become clogged with pollen, leaves, and cardboard dust, who ignore icing problems or compressor short-cycling, who leave doors open into a hot kitchen as a supplement to air-conditioning, and who nevertheless expect flawless operation and cooling on demand.

NRM’s web-enabled controls and monitoring platform acts as an extra set of eyes and hands on the refrigeration system, making troubleshooting quicker and smarter.

What if you could improve your service and make your customers happier, while improving your bottom line and theirs? Or see in real-time as soon as a compressor starts short-cycling? Imagine getting an alert to your phone that a coil was icing up, and start an extra defrost from anywhere…

NRM’s solutions make you a hero to your client through early fault detection, better visibility and transparency, and a more proactive approach to maintenance. View advanced diagnostics and detailed operating data, fast and easy, anytime, from anywhere, online.

Optimization Features and Benefits

Built for the Real World

NRM’s controls are designed from the ground up to be serviceable by anyone. One-button bypass instantly restores the system to pure mechanical control. If the NRM controls fail or lose power, they immediately go to bypass, and come back online with all settings intact. Simple, user-friendly interfaces and operation makes it easy to get state-of-the-art diagnostics without needing to be a computer expert or an engineer. Automated temperature logging eliminates the need for manual recording.

A Complete Turnkey Solution

With unique 24/7 technical support, dozens of service and installation trucks on real-time GPS tracking, automated work-order management and dispatching, NRM is fully equipped to make sure you get the best possible outcome. Our true turn-key approach to implementation, commissioning, training, and post-installation support, means that one company is accountable: NRM. And our ongoing support also allows for continuous training. When roles change or new service professionals need training, we’re only a phone call away.

Proven Energy Savings

When the energy-efficiency industry thinks refrigeration, they think NRM. Our award-winning solution is multi-faceted—comprehensive smart controls, predictive diagnostics, a web-based platform, hardware upgrades—allowing it to provide unmatched optimization. Across tens of thousands of coolers and freezers, NRM solutions reduce energy consumption by 30% or more.

Built in Measurement & Verification (M&V)

Store and download current and historical operational data and energy usage, locally or from The Cloud. Have access to ten or more years of in-depth performance analysis.

Predictive Fault Detection

Never be in the dark about a mechanical issue again. NRM’s platform keeps you connected to your equipment 24/7, from anywhere. Many mechanical issues can occur when you least expect them, or when you’re not even there to notice them. Evaporator coil icing up on a Saturday? Receive an alert to your phone, schedule extra defrosts from your mobile browser, and resolve the issue. Cooler or freezer door left open? Get an alert and call the onsite staff before it becomes a temperature problem.

Tailored Insights

Scalable, real-time oversight, tested and proven across tens of thousands of coolers and freezers. Track temperatures, equipment run-times, on/off status, compressor operation, energy consumption, and more. Refrigerant leak detection, lead/lag, load shifting, adaptive defrost, demand limiting, superheat and sub-cooling performance, and custom management strategies can all be easily implemented.

"In our Annenberg dining hall freezer, our compressors were on the verge of burning out, and we would never have picked up on it if not for the monitoring software. Not only did the alert save the compressor, which is a multi-thousand-dollar repair in itself, but potentially a freezer’s worth of product that might have been lost otherwise. We've had the monitoring software for 10 years, and I wouldn't give it up for anything. It is one of the best things I did to save money on this campus."
