What Is Commercial Refrigeration?
So, we know that anything on a commercial scale means business, but what exactly is a commercial refrigeration? In an effort to better educate readers on what we’re capable of, let’s take a closer look at what’s behind the cool, closed doors.
As you’d imagine, a commercial refrigeration system is significantly larger than a domestic one. Whether used to store massive quantities of perishable goods out of consumers’ sight, or to display products that can easily be grabbed from a rack, commercial refrigerators have revolutionised the way supermarkets do business. This includes smaller grocers, bars, petrol stations, and any business that needs to keep merchandise cold for extended periods of time.
Commercial Refrigeration Parts Generally consisting of an insulated enclosure and neatly arranged shelving that allows for proper airflow, commercial refrigerators can be quite intricate. From the internal air conditioning system to the access points, every part in the system needs to function optimally at all times.
Below are some common parts that make up a commercial unit:
* Cabinets and body parts
* Capillary tubing
* Cold controls
* Combination capacitors
* Condensation evaporators
* Door and drawer handles
* Drain pans
* Drawer and door rollers
* Electrical components such as wiring
* Fan motors and accessories
As you can see, a commercial system could have any combination of the above, with custom refrigerators as an option from suppliers such as Hi-Temp Services – Find out more about our tailored services.
Commercial Kitchen Refrigeration
If you’re a restaurant owner, there’s no doubt about your interest in efficient refrigeration for your business. Without it, you would be serving lukewarm beverages, saggy salads and melted desserts – and that’s not even the worst of it. The good news is that with a system that’s well maintained and operating at it’s potential, you’ll guarantee fresh produce all year round with a cool room that works for your needs.
Commercial Refrigeration Troubleshooting
The fact that commercial refrigerators are in constant use make them vulnerable to unforeseen problems that can be catastrophic if not attended to. This can be anything from the refrigerator not being cold enough to leaking water or having power problems.
While we suggest contacting us if you’re experiencing issues with your system, we’ve compiled a list of common issues with potential causes:
* A unit without power could be because of anything from a faulty extension to loose cabling in the wall or refrigerator.
* High temperatures could relate to the door being opened too often or not closing properly. Other causes could be an over-packed unit or dirty condenser coils.
* Ice build-up usually happens when doors aren’t closed properly, resulting in the cooler overworking to compensate for fluctuating temperatures. If your fan is making noise, it may point towards the replacement of the fan or evaporator.
