Energy saving solutions
Profitable and eco-friendly
Sustainability, energy efficiency and innovation are greatly valued by Vink Koeltechniek. When designing a cooling system, Vink is always searching for innovative technical solutions that will reduce energy consumption and are keeping energy costs as low as possible.
By choosing an efficient cooling system and using high-quality insulation material for cold rooms, less power is consumed. A system is also more durable by using top quality materials that are easy to maintain. In addition, energy costs can be cut down by using heat recovery systems and by installing solar panels.
Energy saving tips
A refrigeration or freezer is often a major energy consumer within a company. Therefore it is important to determine how the refrigerating system can be used more efficiently, so you will cut down on the costs by saviing energy. At your request, Vink will visit your company to check out your cooling system and give free recommendations on how you can lower your energy costs. Already a lot can be achieved by reducing the loss of cold air, for example by using automatic doors, draft curtains and air locks. Also, the lighting that is used inside the cold room or freezer is of influence: LED lighting emits less heat than fluorescent lighting. In addition, LED lighting consumes less power and its life span is about 10 times longer than fluorescent lighting.
Heat recovery is the collection and re-use of heat arising from any process that would otherwise be lost. The energy which is thus extracted from the cooling system can be re-used for other purposes, such as heating an office building, pool or water heater. Thus, the cooling system is used as efficiently as possible resulting in a lower energy bill. Find out how a heat recovery system can reduce your organisaton's energy consumption.

Phasing out of R22
The use of natural refrigerants is a great benefit for environmental conservation. However, many older refrigeration systems are still using the refrigerant R22 (Freon22®). This HCFs is depleting the ozone layer and is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect. That is why the European Commission decided to phase out and ban the use of R22. As from 1 January 2010 it has no longer been permitted for existing cooling, freezing and air conditioning installations filled with R22 to be topped up with new R22 refrigerants (HCFCs). As from 2015, you will not be able to use any R22 service refrigerants or service refrigerants mixed with R22. Each company should have a strategy how to phase out the use of R22, whether it is the conversion of an existing refrigeration installation, or a new installation.
Are you owning a R22 based refrigeration installation or air conditioning system? Then it is necessary to take action as soon as possible because the reclaimed refrigerant R22 is becoming increasingly scarce and this may result in the failure of your system. Vink has already helped many customers to find alternatives for their R22 installations and will gladly advise you in finding the most profitable solution for your business.
Vink specializes in installing solar panels because Photo Voltaic panels (solar cells) are ideally suited to make refrigeration systems work efficiently. After all, when it is hot and sunny outside, there is more demand for cooling inside. In addition to a heat recovery system, this is a good way to generate extra return from your business premises.
Vink stands for sustainability
Vink stands for eco-friendly and energy safing solutions that are benefiting the sustainability of our planet. Of course Vink is also thinking green when it comes to their own business. Not only heat recovery is used, but the office building is very well insulated thus keeping energy consumption low with LTV heating in the floor, solar panels on the roof and automatic lighting in every room.
Vink Koeltechniek stands for sustainability by searching environmentally friendly and energy saving cooling solutions. Together with their customers Vink comes up with innovative and green cooling systems that are profitable to both the business and the planet. Through its sustainable approach Vink is able to work in a way that saves energy. The result is an optimal refrigeration solution with minimal use of environmentally harmful refrigerants.
