Frigitek TM is a series of patented energy saving control devices designed for walk-in or industrial refrigerators and freezers. The purpose of a refrigeration compressor and related equipment is to get heat out of the space. The fan motors often generate more than 30% of the heat in refrigerated spaces. Frigitek reduces this heat load by 75-80% by lowering the voltage to the evaporator fan motors when the box is not being actively cooled.

The result is an excellent reduction in operation costs. These reductions are further increased with the advent of the Frigitek EC Motor controller for motors up to 460V and 1 HP. Ten years of extensive laboratory and field testing, validation by top incentive granting agencies, and most of all the numerous satisfied customers confirm the effectiveness of the product line.

Almost from the beginning, as the single-phase Frigiteks were being promoted, there were requests for a three-phase version from potential users, refrigeration contractors and service companies. After more than two years of research and design, the Three-Phase Frigitek was completed in 2005.

Frigitek Controller Systems are not VFDs making them ideally suited to reduce energy consumption without the requirements for more robust motors and free of causing available in single-phase and three-phase configurations, for both freezers and higher temperature system. No modifications are made to the refrigerant system or the compressor system.
