Part of Emerson’s Making Sense Webinar series, “Best Practices for Evaluating Compressor System Performance” will address differences among compressor and evaporator capacities, midpoint and dew-point compressor selections, and energy-efficiency ratio (EER) and annual energy-efficiency ratio (AEER).

Attendees will learn:

• What is driving retailers to look at and optimize compressor systems.

• How to select the optimal compressor for an application.

• Best practices for performing an annual energy analysis.

• How to use software to do comparisons for various geographic locations.
