Walk-in freezers can reach far colder temperatures than your regular walk-in chiller or cold room. It’s this extra chill factor that keeps products fresher for longer and can help to maximise your business’s potential.
What is a walk-in freezer?
A walk-in freezer keeps produce at a freezing temperature for a prolonged period of time. This temperature is normally between -18°C and -22°C. They are valuable as their very low temperatures prevent any present microbes from multiplying, which can quickly spread if kept at a warmer temperature, thus meaning produce would quickly deteriorate in condition.
Where can I use a walk-in freezer?
Walk-in freezers are more powerful than cold rooms, meaning they have a wider variety of uses. They are frequently employed in the field of meat production, where mould and bacteria are stopped from multiplying to ensure the meat is in optimum condition to be sold on. They are also useful for the temperature-controlled storage of pharmaceutical products. The freezing temperatures also prevent the decomposition of corpses, so they are pieces of equipment used in morgues and funeral homes prior to burials or cremations.
How do I clean a walk-in freezer?
Once you know-how, keeping on top of keeping your walk-in freezer in good condition is an easy process. Keeping on top of your freezer is vital in ensuring that your products are in a premium condition and it is quite a simple task.
Be sure to remember that any leaks or cracks should be inspected on a regular basis, to ensure any air that is warmer than the required temperature does not enter the freezer.
Ensuring you don’t get locked in your walk-in freezer!
The process of locking and unlocking a walk-in freezer is simple regardless of the handle you have on your door. We stock a variety of walk-in freezer handles for both internal or external use for you to choose from.
All handles have slightly different ways of working. With this in mind, it is important to read the manual of your chosen door handle and familiarise yourself – and anyone operating the walk-in freezer – with the mechanism before your cold room is used.
