Did you know that nearly all commercial businesses use commercial refrigeration to operate on a daily basis? From restaurants to hospitals, commercial refrigeration is essential in properly serving their customers. With so many different functions for refrigeration, there are different purposes for each refrigeration system. Here are the four main types of commercial refrigeration systems and the ways that they can best serve your business.
The Reach-In is the most common type of refrigeration system. These systems are found in most convenient stores and operate as a working box. Customers or employees reach into the cooler via a sliding door or pull door allowing them to get their products from the refrigerator. One of the biggest benefits of the reach-in cooler is that they are excellent in regulating temperature while having a relatively low operational cost. This is because they are built to keep the interior cool at all times even if the door is repeatedly opened or kept open for a while.
The Walk-In is the largest type of refrigeration system. It can store several large items and requires the user to walk into the refrigerator to grab their contents. Walk-ins are larger scale which is ideal for larger restaurants and businesses that may need to regulate the temperature of many items at one time.
Merchandisers/Refrigerant cases are a great way to advertise a product while making them easily accessible. These systems display the products so that the customer can easily make a choice. An added benefit of these systems is they make the products look most appealing which is ideal for restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries. These systems are often smaller than reach-ins and walk-ins but are the most customer-friendly.
Prep Cooler/Tables are most often used in restaurant kitchens to regulate temperature and store food products for quick use. An advantage to using them is you can take food products right from the fridge and prepare them directly on the table. This allows for quick and convenient food preparation for industries where a short prep time is needed.
