Refrigerators are basic storage units that are imperative to the functioning of commercial restaurants. Not only do they keep food and perishable ingredients safe, but commercial refrigeration units also prevent bacterial growth in food elements. There are specific guidelines and codes to be followed during commercial refrigerator installation.
Commercial refrigerators should also adhere to relevant NSF standards. Trained and certifies experts who provide refrigerator installation services are well-versed in these guidelines and can offer accurate, safe, and efficient solutions.
The smooth functioning of your refrigerators and freezers is critical to ensure that your customers don’t develop food-borne diseases from dining at your eatery. Refrigerant keeps your refrigerator functioning well and keeps your food safe and fresh for a longer time.
However, it’s essential to regularly check for refrigerant leaks since the substance is highly hazardous to life and health. Refrigerant filling and refilling should also be carried out by factory-trained professionals authorized to provide commercial refrigeration services.
It’s critical to pay attention to temperature control during commercial refrigerator installation. The temperature requirements would vary based on the refrigerator’s capacity, the type and quantity of food stored in the unit, and the size of your business.
If the protein-based item is to be stored longer, you may need freezer-level temperatures to keep the food safe. Commercial refrigerator installation specialists can help you understand and conform to these required temperature standards. The food may rot or suffer nutrient loss if the temperature requirements are not followed to the dot.
Separate Storage Units
The temperature requirements for meat, fish, and milk are different from vegetables and other items. Restaurant owners who deal in large quantities of meats and other protein-based ingredients every day may consider using a separate refrigerator for these products. If the quantity of meat or fish is small, you may opt for a refrigerator with a separate storage unit for meat and vegetables.
Protein-based food items are more vulnerable to bacterial growth and infections. Storing these items with other regular ingredients could affect the quality of other foods as well.
The air conditioning unit of the refrigerator is essential to guarantee even temperature distribution throughout the refrigerator. If the fans and other components of the unit do not function well, even heat distribution would be impossible. Commercial installation professions will inspect and analyze the quality and working fan condition.
Walk-in Refrigerators and Freezers
The installation and maintenance of walk-in commercial refrigeration units should be based on specific NSF and OSHA guidelines. The equipment requires regular servicing. Tools like panic bars and indoor handles are required to ensure people who regularly use the walk-in freezer or refrigerators. Improper installation and maintenance could lead to severe or even fatal injuries.
