Walk in Cold Rooms
What are walk in cold rooms?
A walk in cold room is a purpose-built storage solution to keep stock refrigerated or frozen at a cold temperature. The temperature of a walk in cold room is an artificially generated environment – meaning the temperature can be manually controlled. The scale of cold rooms can vary from large commercial setups to small cold rooms utilise in labs, pharmacies and restaurants.
Cold Room Temperatures
Walk-in cold rooms are an excellent, practical storage solution that transforms how you keep stock at the required temperature, from perishable food items to Pharmaceuticals.
Cold rooms can operate in one of two temperature zones. The first zone operates between 2 -12 degrees, often referred to as a walk-in chiller. They are mainly used to store consumable goods that are rotated every few days.
The second temperature zone operates between -2 and 5 degrees, and act as a freezer. This is generally used for products that are used in a few days to a few weeks. Storing products at a colder temperature is a preference in many industries, as they preserve items that quickly go out of date. Keeping just below freezing is the optimum temperature for a lot of food products to ensure they stay fresh for as long as possible.
Benefits of Walk In Cold Rooms
There are several benefits of cold rooms. For food production companies, they help save money as it avoids unnecessary food wastage and food going spoiled.
