Complete Working & Analysis of a Cold Storage Room

Commonly pronounced as the cold storage, a refrigerated room is a four-walling confined space created to stock perishable food products. This restricted space is enriched with a freezing ambience assuring the prolonged life of fruits and vegetables, also maintain their natural taste and goodness. A refrigerated room serves a plethora of benefits to wholesale food suppliers and big retailers. It helps them save money by preventing food wastages, solves the space dilemma at their consumer outlets, storing an extensive range of stuff, and much more, making it a real value for money investment.

Construction & Working Of A Refrigerated Room?

A Cold Space Is Made Of-

A cold storage plant is typically constructed with premium quality concrete material or undeteriorated bricks, this is done to deter any escaping of the inside cold air. The entire room is insulated with low thermal conductivity rating materials—right from the flooring, doors, to the room ceilings.

The Operative Principle of a Cold Space-

A commercial refrigerated space adhere to the underlying principle of “Vapor-Compression Refrigeration Cycle” to maintain an optimal cooling environment. Based on the second law of Thermodynamics, a cold storage plant’s working in terms of physics is quite simplified. Here, transferring heat takes place between a body at a lower temperature with one at a much higher temperature. For this process to take place, extra energy is required, and that energy is provided by the compressor power maintaining a continuous cooling temperature.

The Working of A Refrigerator Room-

  • First of all, the compressor plays the central role in the entire mechanism of cool rooms, it compresses the Ammonia, technically known as the vaporizes refrigerant to very high pressure. Consequently, at high temperature, raising the boiling point of the refrigerant.

  • Then, comes the condenser taking the baton from the compressor, its task is to liquify the Ammonia, the vaporized refrigerant at a higher pressure and temperature state. This is done to establish the heat rejection phenomenon.

  • Now, the output of condensation is accumulated in the reservoir. Then, it is allowed to undergo the expansion phase, where condensate will experience a slight decrease in pressure and temperature.

  • Once, the temperature and pressure of the liquefied refrigerant decreases, then it is made to invade the refrigerator room, where the refrigerator space heat is evaporating, therefore, cooling the entire space.

  • And, not the least, now is the time for the blowers to evenly spread the cold air in the room to preserve the natural qualities of foodstuff.

Final Words Of Advice

From the above, you probably got a clear idea about the construction and operation of a commerical cold space. However, as a piece of advice, unlike commercial freezers, the cold rooms are immovable; so, it is essential to look for a specialist for the installation job. Ideally, you should do thorough background research on the agency you contract for this job. And, not to mention, take into account the pricing aspect to find the right flock.
