At what temperature is a refrigeration chamber
A refrigeration chamber, also known as a cold room or cold room, represents an essential environment in commercial, industrial and scientific environments. They are intended for the preservation and controlled cooling of various products. These installations have a wide range of applications within these industries and commercial sectors.
For example, cold rooms are ideal for storing fresh produce without freezing, including beverages, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, sausages and meats in establishments such as supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and hotels.
These chambers can be designed with variable dimensions and adjusted to the available space. These range from more compact options to suit small establishments, to larger units that resemble spaces set up for labour or storage of goods.
The temperature of the refrigeration chambers usually ranges from 0 to 12 degrees Celsius.. This optimal thermal range guarantees the proper preservation of products that require moderate cooling, ensuring their integrity and quality over time. If you need solutions that offer lower temperature ranges, then you need a freezing chamber.
Differences between a refrigeration and a freezing chamber?
The main difference is that the refrigeration chambers do not subject the products to sub-zero temperatures, they are set up in ranges from 0 to 14 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, freezing chambers by definition maintain temperatures below 0ºC, reaching as low as -30ºC.
The second difference lies in their structure, the refrigeration panels that we use in each case usually vary in thickness; being more robust in the freezing chambers, known as negative chambers, in contrast to the conservation or positive chambers.
The third difference is the refrigeration engine or equipment used in each type of chamber. The temperature requirements call for different motors, as well as certain details that are essential for their smooth operation, such as electric heaters in the door frames to prevent ice build-up.
Where can I install the cold room?
A cold room can be installed in various indoor or semi-covered spaces that are protected from rain and direct sunlight. In addition, it is important to consider certain factors for proper installation:
- Availability of a nearby drain to drain condensation water.
- Access to an electrical socket to connect the refrigeration equipment or engine.
- Level and uneven floor surface.
- Adequate ventilation to allow for air renewal.
It is advisable to choose a location with low acoustic echo if there are neighbours nearby, although this is not essential as we can create specially designed refrigeration systems to minimise noise if necessary.
By location or sector of activity, these are some examples of where we have installed cold rooms and how they have been used:
- Markets and supermarkets: food and beverages.
- Fruit and vegetable shops: fruit, vegetables and greengrocers.
- Bars and catering: drinks, food, ready meals.
- Florists: flowers and plants.
- Butchery: meat and sausages.
- Fishmonger: fish and seafood.
- Bakery and patisserie: bread, pastries, cakes, etc.
- Farms: dairy, cheese and eggs.
- Logistics centres, laboratories, pharmaceuticals and the chemical industry.
- Ice cream parlour: ice cream and derivatives.
- Private households: food, wine and other beverages.
