Stone Mountain, GA, July 18, 2016 – Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration continues to build on a legacy of award winning products by receiving the Bronze award for product design excellence in the 13th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. This year’s independent panel of contractors recognized the Heatcraft Quick Response Controller, also referred to as “QRC”, as the Bronze Winner in the Refrigeration and Ice Machines category.
The News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, "These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions."
The Heatcraft Quick Response Controller is a factory installed and tested control solution that provides automatic superheat and intelligent defrost control for refrigeration unit coolers. The Quick Response Controller combines electronic expansion valves (EEV’s), superheat control, defrost algorithms and fan cycling that result in faster temperature pull downs, stable operating temperatures and overall energy efficiency. Utilizing innovative, state-of-the-art technologies, the Quick Response Controller delivers reliable operation and system performance while saving energy compared to traditional electro-mechanical refrigeration controls. The controller also does not require wiring to be run between the evaporator and the condensing unit, reducing installation labor time and material cost.
“Heatcraft continuously dedicates its research and development resources to design products that add value to the Refrigeration industry, whether it is through ease of installation and enhanced serviceability, increased energy efficiency and refrigerant reduction, or unique solutions that solve customer problems and optimize their total cost of ownership,” stated Larry Golen, VP and GM of Heatcraft Refrigeration Products. “We are proud to be recognized with the Bronze ACHR News Dealer Design Award for the Heatcraft Quick Response Controller, developed to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Heatcraft has previously been recognized with multiple awards for its innovative products. Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 18, 2016, issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals.
