        Sample projects

        REFRIGERATION PLANT CONVERSION & DESIGN/BUILD

        Complete renovation of refrigeration plant for large peanut processing facility. All areas were kept in operation during renovation. The project included replacing refrigeration equipment, using existing air handling units, and converting R-12 systems to R-22. We were then asked to design and install refrigeration at a new warehouse. The six new unit coolers provided 200 tons of cooling designed to maintain 38º F and 65% RH.

        REFRIGERATION PLANT ADDITION

        Added two 80′ W X 180′ L refrigerated warehouses to an existing facility. The system included two air-cooled condensing units and twelve-unit coolers. The system was designed with remote electronic temperature and humidity sensors in the warehouses and chart recorders in the manager’s office to continually monitor warehouse conditions.

        Following this project, we provided a turnkey design-build for the same equipment configuration for a new warehouse at another location.

        refrigeration system FAQ’S

        Is it possible to enhance my current commercial refrigeration system through retrofits or upgrades to align with current energy efficiency standards?

        In sectors such as supermarkets, refrigeration systems account for a substantial 40-60% of electricity usage. Since commercial refrigeration is one of the largest energy consumers, optimizing your system can significantly save operational costs.

        Often, you can achieve cost savings by retrofitting or upgrading specific components of your system without replacing the entire setup. Following a comprehensive baseline energy audit, one of our dedicated project managers or engineers can gain a deeper insight into which retrofits are most suitable for your specific system. Some common retrofit options and upgrades encompass:

        1. Implementing Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) for condenser fan motors.
        2. Installing Smart Controls for enhanced system management.
        3. Carrying out compressor rebuilds to improve efficiency.
        4. Replacing valves to enhance system performance.
        5. Upgrading doors for improved insulation and efficiency.

        These strategic improvements enhance your refrigeration system’s efficiency and contribute to significant cost reductions.

        What does scheduled maintenance and inspections for my commercial refrigeration consist of?

        Regular maintenance and inspections should be conducted monthly to quarterly, depending on your business operations. A refrigeration technician carries out routine procedures to ensure the efficient operation of your system, reducing downtime and extending its lifespan. While specific maintenance tasks may vary according to design and manufacturer guidelines, here are some typical responsibilities:

        • Inspecting electrical connections
        • Addressing gas leaks, lubricating hinges, and cleaning gaskets
        • Verifying refrigeration levels
        • Assessing the calibration of thermometers
        • Disassembling and cleaning ice makers
        • Examining components for signs of wear and tear

        Why is my refrigerator getting warmer?

        Numerous potential factors can cause a walk-in cooler or refrigerator to lose its cooling capability. Common issues that can disrupt the fundamental refrigeration cycle encompass:

        1. Electrical problems
        2. Thermostat malfunctions
        3. Accumulated dirt on condenser coils
        4. A malfunctioning compressor
        5. Complications with the evaporator fan
        6. Problems with the defrost system
        7. Inadequate airflow

        Controls are essential for ensuring the efficient and reliable operation of refrigeration systems. 

        1. Temperature Regulation
        2. Energy Efficiency
        3. Defrost Control
        4. Remote Monitoring and Management
        5. Data Analysis
