Commercial Refrigeration FAQs
Commercial refrigeration refers to cooling equipment used in enterprises such as supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, schools, and hospitals to preserve perishable food and medicine. This equipment comes in many forms and sizes, from small ice cream display cases to large walk-in refrigerated storage areas.
Like with most things, it depends on what you need the unit for. Reach-in coolers are the most prevalent type, and they are ideal for storing food and other perishable products in bars and restaurants. Walk-in coolers are substantially larger and excellent for storing bulk goods at controlled temperatures. Under-counter or bar coolers are also options if you want smaller units. When in doubt, consult with us for professional advice.
The cost of running some commercial refrigeration equipment during its lifetime can be six times the cost of the system itself. Businesses that primarily rely on refrigeration and freezing, such as supermarkets, may spend up to 50 per cent of their overall energy budget on keeping food cool and fresh. Therefore, it’s crucial to have energy-efficient refrigeration equipment and ensure it’s properly maintained.
Energy-saving features on commercial refrigeration equipment can provide some additional benefits to business owners. High-efficiency motors, for example, can help protect fruits and vegetables from drying out by lowering airflow and operating only when the refrigerated systems are needed for cooling. On the other hand, de-humidification filters may effectively remove smells and reduce bacteria growth while reducing operational costs.
Cleaning the cooling coils of a system a few times a year will help prevent the accumulation of dirt, grime and dust, which can cause the coils to work harder and consume more power. To keep condensers and evaporators working efficiently, they should be cleaned and serviced at least twice a year.
Door gaskets are rubber linings that keep the temperature of a commercial refrigeration or freezer unit stable by forming a seal that keeps cold air in and warm air out. When gaskets become worn or brittle, their efficiency deteriorates, and they must be replaced. Operating a refrigeration system with worn-out gaskets causes energy loss because air streaming in or out forces the compressor to work harder and more often.
Refrigeration controls ensure that all of the primary components of a refrigeration system connect. These components include the thermostat, compressor, condenser, and evaporator.
Fan motors assist in keeping food fresh by circulating cold air and evaporating moisture in open display cases. Motors are also used to power the fans of larger refrigeration systems, which circulate cold air through all the components. This prevents the components from overheating, which can reduce their performance or cause them to fail in worst-case scenarios.
The optimal location for a walk-in cooler is on a level concrete slab. Installing a walk-in freezer or cooler on a wooden floor requires the addition of insulation. Some health departments mandate specified finishes for your flooring, so check with your local health agency before installation.
