What’s Refrigeration?

What’s Refrigeration?

Industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning operate on the same principle: a fluid, generally water or air, is cooled by evaporation of another fluid, known as the refrigerant.

The main components of a refrigerant circuit are:

  • Evaporator:
  • Compressor
  • Condenser
  • Expansion device

Refrigeration is the process involving a drop in the temperature of fluids. Specifically, it’s used for temporary storage of perishable goods, at temperature down to -60 °C.

Refrigeration is one of the most important application in the food industry, as it slows down the growth of bacteria in produce, preserves organoleptic properties and extends shelf-life

The equipment utilised in the commercial refrigeration industry includes:

  • Cold rooms
  • Supermarket displays
  • Displays in patisseries, bar, ice cream
  • Refrigerators used in industrial kitchens and distribution centres
  • Refrigeration for pharmaceutical industry
  • Blast Chillers
  • Display freezers

The equipment will vary in design, shape and standard compliance i.e. the cooling performance required.
