Micro Channel Technology

A revolutionary solution conceived and patented by Pastorfrigor that can provide you with…


Genova Ecovision MCT

We are extremely proud to be shortlisted for two RAC awards
Refrigeration Innovation category.
Refrigeration Product of the Year category.


The Genova MCT is integral so you can move it around the store much easier than a remote case – brilliant if you need to re-configure your store.
BUT with a difference!

Lower energy bills

Uses 47% less energy than a standard glass door integral multideck.
That’s a saving of £440 a year for a 2.5m section.

It’s very quiet

Running noise level as low as 52dB
(that’s almost a whisper).

Less heat into 
your store

Total heat rejection is 2KW
so it won’t melt your chocolate!

Open your
 store sooner

Installation time cut by 50% due to
simpler installation, so get those
customers back in.

Future proof

HFC’s like R404A and R407F will cease to be made from 2018. The Genova MCT uses R290 Refrigerant so you won’t increase your lifecycle costs.

Using lightweight aluminium and with 3 years of development Pastorfrigor have now patented the Micro Channel Technology (MCT) for its new generation of plug in Genova Chillers and Freezers, all have the characteristics of much lower noise, lower energy consumption and less heat rejection compared to a standard integral cabinet, which means that you now have a viable replacement for a conventional remote system.

It is significantly smaller!

  • Improved recyclability: Fully aluminium for a total weight of 6.2 kg
  • Lighter weight: 30% less compared to a traditional evaporator
  • Less bulk: 20% less compared to traditional evaporator, with the resulting opportunity to increase the display area
  • Lower gas charge: 60% gas charge reduction for HCF refrigerants and 80% for HC ones
  • Reduced consumption: On average between 25% and 50%, deriving both from a lower gas charge and the possibility of utilising efficient gases like R290/R1270 and future developments with CO2
  • Lower condenser heat rejection: Less heat rejected from the condenser into the sales area means less heat to be removed by air conditioning or a more comfortable environment for non air-conditioned stores
  • Minimal environmental impact: As a result of the technology providing greater possibilities of the use of HC with a GWP equal to zero
