Cold Room Business
When we think about preserving products, one of the first solutions that comes to our mind is a refrigerating chamber or a cold room. Can you imagine a world without refrigeration? In fact, it would be very difficult to live in it and many of the things that surround you would be practically non-existent, including your business.
What is cold room?
A refrigerating chamber or cold room is a warehouse in which a specific temperature is artificially generated. It is generally designed for storing products in an environment below the outside temperature.
Products that need refrigeration include fruits, vegetables, seafood, meat, flowers, gardening.
Cold rooms have been an essential part of the maritime industry. These rooms are in warmer latitudes, where the commercialization of products and the time factor play important roles for the development of specific industries that require very strict quality parameters.
Cold store room are also used for engineering products, e.g. to store chemicals at an ideal temperature for processing or to slow down chemical reactions (for example, in processes catalyzed by temperatures or in polymers).
What applications do cold store room have?
Regardless of the products they contain, these cold rooms are very useful for:
The sanitary standards require that businesses, such as warehouses and restaurants, have an appropriate temperature to receive their raw materials, which will later be placed in different points. A good cooling system is crucial for these cases.
Storage and products handling.
This allows an increase in production and marketing, extending shelf life and enabling the transformation of products.
In these cases, it is very common to allow the final consumer to easily access products and, at the same time, have a much more attractive point of sale.
How does refrigeration intervene in a cold room?
Refrigeration slows chemical and biological processes in food, and controls deterioration and loss of quality. Through storage, the life of fresh perishable foods such as meats, fish, fruits and vegetables can be extended several days by cooling, and several weeks or months by freezing.
When requesting your quotation for a cold room, the refrigeration engineer knows:
● Fruits and vegetables continue to breathe and generate heat during storage.
● Most of it should be frozen in a temperature range, instead of a single temperature.
● The quality of frozen foods is greatly impacted by the freezing rate.
● The speed of refrigerated air affects the rate of moisture loss in products.
How to choose the temperature inside a cold room?
The internal temperature depends on the material or product that will be stored. A known application is foods storage for their preservation, such as frozen foods, which are stored at below zero temperatures. Local vegetables and fruits are stored at 0°C and tropical and subtropical fruits at 5 to 13 °C.
What to do?
Preserve your products adequately is not an option, but a necessity. By guaranteeing this process, the profits of your company will be greatly benefited. A good start is to define what your needs are and what kind of process you require for your products, to quote not only the right equipment, but a specific and specialized design for your company.
