LG Electronics has announced the sale of its 15th million refrigerator powered by its proprietary Inverter Linear Compressor, the division’s most successful core technology.
After experiencing an 8% increase within the company’s premium refrigerator sales, in comparison with the previous year, LG expects to sell four million more units this year, averaging a sale of seven refrigerators sold every minute!
LG’s linear compressor is a considered the core technology behind the success of the company’s appliances. Unlike conventional rotary compressors that utilise a circular motion, LG’s unit implements a linear motion which in turn reduces energy consumption and noise levels, in comparison to conventional models.
The company’s linear compressor refrigerator has been named ‘Best Refrigerator’ by a number of consumer organisations due to its excellent performance, consistent temperature controls and low noise level.
Speaking on behalf of the company, Song Dae-hyun, president of LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company, remarked “Our priority to enhance refrigerator performance, reduce noise levels while using less energy is how we continue to bring value to our customers.”
