First response as with many customers was trepidation and resistance to change to a new technology product. Prior to 2012, East Sum Meat has been using, and believed in the traditional tried and tested, Reciprocating Condensing Units as they proved to be very reliable and why change a winning formula?
Taking into consideration the advantages as explained by Mr. Shawn Brewis (Metraclark East London Branch Manager) and Coastal Refrigeration, East Sum Meat took the decision to install the first Emerson ZX Condensing Units at Umtata in 2012. It was clearly visible from the time of installation that the Emerson ZX Condensing Unit range does not only offer pleasing aesthetics, but much more! Mr. Owen O’Neil, co-owner of Coastal Refrigeration, positively responded as follows after successfully completing another 13 System project at Eat Sum Meat Cofimvaba, Eastern Cape, recently. “Emerson ZX Condensing Units together with Recam Heat Exchangers are specified and installed as standard at all Eat Sum Meat stores. Main reasons are: Pleasing Aesthetics complementing our installation standards, Ease of installation, Best fit product for our application, Proven Efficiency, Proven Reliability, Easy Diagnostics, Proven Low Maintenance and Value for Money.”
Going one step further, Metraclark introduced the New Emerson ZX Next Generation Condensing Units in November 2015. This market leading product now offers you an “Intelligent Store Solution”-
The most innovative approach to facility management. This system integrates the hardware and service to offer you an overview of what the actual running cost is to operate and maintain a facility and understand the entire network.

The Copeland Scroll with variable speed fan motor, larger condenser coils and advanced control algorithms all contributes to the Emerson ZX Condensing Unit exceptional energy efficiency. The integrated electronics provide protection against over-current, over-heating, incorrect phase rotation, compressor cycling, high pressure resets, and low pressure cut-outs. It is also capable of sending out warning messages to an operator when there is a liquid flood back, which can prevent critical damage on the unit.
