Cold room: The ultimate introduction
Cold room is a large refrigerator that can be walked within. But beyond this simple definition, cold rooms or cold stores are rooms that are covered with insulating walls such as sandwich panels and a cooling unit responsible for cooling the space inside the room.
Cold stores are an excellent solution for businesses that do not meet their needs with ordinary industrial refrigerators. You can easily walk in cold rooms. This is a feature that is ideal for a wide range of business environments.
Where is the cold room used?
For businesses such as restaurants, cafes, or bars or other places that store food in large quantities, a cold room is the ideal option for storing cold or frozen food and keeping it fresh in an environment that is easily accessible.
Cold rooms are often used in environments such as hotels and large accommodations that require a large amount of food storage. The cold room can be an ideal choice for supermarkets and other environments where large quantities of cold or frozen food are sold.
The nature of a cold room allows for easy organization and order, and its large size helps to ensure that all items are placed in a place where they can be easily found and removed when needed. This feature is often very important for employees who work in the cold room.
By making work easier and more pleasant for your employees, the cold room increases the efficiency of your food business. In addition, with faster access to products, it increases the speed of the work process and also increases customer satisfaction.
The advantages of a cold room
We at Palmore International supply and manufacture cold rooms in different sizes and designs, offering multiple benefits to businesses, large and small.
Benefits of Palmore’s cold rooms are that they reduce waste, save energy, and provide convenient, easy access to well-organized goods and ingredients, which will reduce costs and free up space, such as in busy kitchens.
A well-designed and well-maintained cold room reduces your business’s energy consumption and environmental impact, thus reducing your business’s energy costs.
It is possible to place cold rooms indoors or outdoors, so they provide flexibility in how properties and spaces are allocated, designed, and used.
How does a cold room work?
Cold room refrigeration transfers heat from an enclosed inside space to the outside. These refrigeration systems are able to cool, heat and dehumidify air.
Through the chemistry of liquids known as refrigerants the heat will be transferred. When the liquids evaporate and turn into gas, their molecules separate from each other and easily absorb heat.
When liquid refrigerant chemicals evaporate as steam, they ‘boil’ and turn into a gas at much lower temperatures than water. Refrigeration systems rely on this behavior.
Circulating refrigerant involves pipes, compressors, expansion valves, coils, and fans enclosed within a circular system. Through coils and fans, the refrigerant absorbs any warmth from the cold room air and releases it at another point through compression or expansion. Through a fan, the heated air is finally released into the cold outside air.
The cold room can be located indoors or outdoors, but it requires good ventilation, so very confined spaces might not be ideal. It is possible to provide shelter for them from the weather if they are located outdoors.
Expelled warmth can be recycled through heat exchangers in commercial air conditioning, which is used to warm incoming cold air in offices, shops, and restaurants. In addition to their benefits for commercial and environmental purposes, air conditioning, ventilation, and heating (HVAC) systems transfer heat.
The efficiency and success of businesses are greatly impacted by the design, organization, and maintenance of cold storage rooms. In addition to preserving perishable goods, they also minimize the amount of energy and produce wasted.
A cold and freezer room’s components, design, and configuration are crucial. In addition to bespoke designs tailored to your specific business, we offer a range of room sizes and purposes.
Vegetables, for example, should be stored appropriately to prevent dry-out caused by dehumidification.
