The General Manager, Home Appliances Division, LG Electronics, West Africa operations, Mr. Jiung Park, has urged Ordinary Equipment Manufacturers to create innovations that can make their products durable.
According to him, the LG understands that durability is just as important as strong performance.
A statement from the company said, “The 21st century is regarded by many as the macrocosm of novel appliances and technologies. Owing to their reliability, efficiency and suitability, it is not easy for householders today to run a home without utilising a number of appliances.”
“In a bid to satisfy its teeming consumers and deliver next level convenience, LG Electronics, a leader in home appliances and consumer electronics, recently achieved unprecedented technological advancements with the core technology designed for some of its products. These achievements came with critical acclaim along with the patent right.”
It added, “This core technology breakthrough gave the LG the confidence to back it up with a 10-year warranty, first of its kind in home appliance category in Nigeria. The products covered by the 10-year warranty include LG refrigerators and chest freezers, with linear and smart inverter compressors, LG washing machines with inverter direct drive motor, LG charcoal lighting heater in microwave oven and LG cordless vacuum cleaner with smart inverter motor.”
According to Park, LG door-in-door and side-by-side refrigerator utilised LG’s inverter linear compressor, which enabled the refrigerator to consume 32 per cent less energy and produce 25 per cent less noise.
He added, “Employing a linear piston drive, instead of a conventional reciprocating drive, the LG’s advanced ILC generates less internal friction than other compressor systems.
“The reduction in friction results in lower energy requirements, less noise production, as well as greater reliability and durability for the compressor. The Inverter Linear compressor creates an optimal temperature balance inside the refrigerator, helping to extend the amount of time that food stays fresh.”
