Coolroom Accessories and Parts16 November 2016
Coolrooms lack basic features when they’re initially constructed. Certainly, the modular panels interlock superbly and the powered refrigeration unit works efficiently, but everything else feels, well, unfinished. Coolroom accessories and parts (spares) address this concern. Better yet, they transform the empty space, give it purpose as a high-functioning storage area that can handle any temperature-sensitive commodity. It all begins with energy conservation.
Tough polymers produce airtight seals that stop energy leakage. The existing rubber seals are probably up to the job, but they will wear as time has its way. Additionally, icy buildups have a habit of forming behind seals until they distend. Supplementary gaskets reinforce an already formidable thermal barrier. As for replacement parts, door linings and frame gaskets should always be kept in stock just in case a fitted seal becomes defective.
The furnishings we’re referring to aren’t decorative. They’re utilitarian items, so some knowledge of the application or storage medium is required before shelves can be installed. Wire shelving is preferred when packaged food requires an organized storage medium, for the epoxy-covered grids used in these open storage units maximize airflow. Similarly, glass-fronted cabinets are the best option for the pharmaceutics industry.
Spare Parts Deliberation
Parts fail over time. An overhead light bulb or fluorescent tube ages and blinks off, but the problem is quickly fixed by keeping a box of replacements handy in a nearby storeroom. Coolroom accessories and parts strategies adopt a comparable approach. Doors, as one example, place mechanical stress on handles and hinges, so spare parts should be available in case a faulty door hampers access. Worse yet, a gap may develop, one that compromises seal integrity, so door parts rank highly in this scenario.
Energy audits dictate the terms of this situation, with the user playing a significant role in both cause and solution. If the cause of an energy spike is a door continually opening and closing, the accessory of choice is likely to be a plastic curtain or a pair of solid sheets of thick plastic. Additional dial thermostats also fit into this monitoring model, with localized temperature measurements placing the supplementary gauges in prominent locations around the sealed chamber.
A safety net is established when coolroom accessories and parts (spares and otherwise) are accessible. Competent service engineers use this methodology to equip walk-in units with augmented functions or simply to ensure the cooler can be repaired as soon as it begins to show signs of a breakdown.
