Page history last edited by Jessica 10 years, 7 months ago

Hi my name is Jessica and I have decided to build a wiki page dedicated to refrigeration equipment. Anyone who wants to join this wiki for collaboration, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to add more members. Since early childhood I was actively involved in refrigeration. My first introduction to refrigeration systems was at age of 16 when I disassembled old fridge in my fathers garage. Since then I am a refrigeration equipment engineer, specializing in industrial walk in units such as walk in coolers and freezers.

Although it's usually believed that commercial walk-in coolers opperate in the same manner as household fridges, those two kinds of cooling gadgets in fact perform in a completely different ways. Fridges use the refrigerated air that is created by way of the freezer inside  to keep the frige segment cold. Walk in coolers generate the cold air to keep the air at the temperatures the thermostat is programmed at, the use of fan and condensers that cycle on & off in order to deal with the temperatures of the unit. On this method the technology that drives a walk-in cooler is very similar to the way in which an A/C air conditioner performs than any refrigerator.


The Thermostat and Condenser Unit are the most important components of any refrigeration equipment, both units must be up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are like heart and veins of the walk in coolers and freezers. Thermostat controls the temperatures in walk in freezers and walk-in coolers. While the temperature throughout the unit begins to pick up above the temperatures the thermostat is programmed, condenser units switch on & start a cooling cycle. Fans within the walk in unit then pulls air within the cooler & over the coil of the condensers. Coolant that may be inside of the coil eliminates the warmth from the air as it moves over them. Cooled air then movements out the again of the unit, & is somewhat chillier than whilst it used to be pulled in. This keeps till the temperatures of the air either suits or is less warm than the temperature at the thermostats. The coolants in the condensers coil is constantly pumped right through the cooling cycles; this ensures that the coolants may not heat up an excessive amount before cooling again. Another cycle that guarantees that the condenser does not freeze up and turn into coated in ice & frost. In case if the temperatures falls very low normally round 30 degrees Fahrenheit, then the fan start over, however with out the coolant in their coils cycling through the system. This progressively heats the condensers coils & the inside temperatures starts to pick up. This defrost cycle will forestall when the temperature throughout the coolers is back inside of suitable range.


One essential to consider an efficient walk-in cooler is its insulation. Usual walk-in cooler units have among 2 and four inch of Styrofoam insulation within the walls along with a polyurethane sealing gasket across the door that is helping be sure that it's both well-insulated. The Styrofoam & sealing gasket keep outdoor temperature from influencing the air throughout the walk in cooler, and ensure the condensers have to chill only the air within the unit.



Commercial Ice Making Machines


When you are involved in a restaurant type of business than most likely you realize that faulty or not operational equipment is a huge drawback which may result in significant profit loss. And ice making equipment is not an exception to this. Getting a good ice maker for your dining establishment can be of significant importance to you. Whether you need ice to serve cold drinks to customers, or to prevent the products from spoiling, an ice maker is the type of restaurant equipment that will make it, with no trouble of having to order ice delivery or sending an employee to get it from a nearby store. Your customers require speed and quality, and you can expect that from your ice making equipment. In addition to significant savings, a good ice maker is a reliable piece of restaurant equipment that will prevent an unnecessary ice related incidents from happening.

When searching for commercial ice makers for your dining establishment it is better to talk to specialists; somebody qualified and knowledgeable in the area may help you make the right decision. You are going to make a few choices, but the skilled expert will explain them in detail and make the whole decision making process easier. Choosing the right location of the ice maker is a critical and vital task therefore if feeling uncertain you should get professional assistance in order to take correct measurements, especially if you plan to have your unit built into kitchen cabinetry or bar area. The dimensions of the unit are critical as well. A qualified specialist will be familiar with such calculations for the right ice machine necessary for your type of business. You can also be surprised and even confused by a variety of ice that can be produced by different ice machines. Somebody who is knowledgeable in the field can provide all the details required to choose between gourmet ice, diced ice, chewable nugget ice, scale ice, contour ice, and flake ice. Every one of them has its distinctive advantages and purposes, therefore a clarification on this topic will be very useful.
