To achieve perfect refrigeration of your products, you must initially know the benefits that a freezer and cold stores offer you. Your supermarket, industry, or business needs adequate food preservation, which in turn will translate into profitable profits and a low rate of losses due to damage. You have many questions and here we answer them so you can decide and plan how to refrigerate your products.

Differences between a freezer and cold storage:

Cold storage or cold storage is an industrial facility used to store meat or vegetables for better conservation and at low temperatures, for later marketing. It is a kind of “ca cold storage”. 

The freezer, on the other hand, is a low-temperature refrigerator that can be incorporated into conventional refrigerators, or alone, usually in the shape of a large drawer.

With the cold storage, conserved foods can be kept at adequate temperatures to avoid bacterial multiplication; while, the freezer is used to freeze the products. According to your needs, you can clarify your doubts about what suits you best.

In addition to companies, it is also possible to obtain refrigeration systems installed on land, sea, and air transport for the transfer of items that require low temperatures for their conservation.

In this blog, we do not focus on industrial refrigeration where a freezer or cold storage is essential. Each of these typologies is subdivided into refrigeration and freezing equipment.

Benefits of cold storages:

There are different sizes and types of ca cold storage that can be adapted to your company. We can mention refrigeration and freezing, which, in turn, are divided into two sub types: basic cold storage, which reaches temperatures from 10ºC to -4ºC and their objective is to keep food in perfect condition, and space freezers, which reach a temperature of -35ºC and are used to preserve special products.

There are also temperature reducers that quickly cool freshly cooked food and freezing tunnels that serve to quickly solidify products, preventing them from crystallizing.

You must bear in mind that the cold storage not only maintains the necessary temperature but also maintains adequate humidity and gaseous composition of the environment. 

If you have it, or are in the process of obtaining it, among other things you have to establish the temperature of fruits and vegetables from a temperate climate, between 0°C and 4°C, and those from a subtropical and tropical climate, from 8°C to 13°C

These are just some of the benefits that you can have with a ca cold storage, compared to freezers, where the temperature is -18ºC. That is why the cold provided by the cold storage is key to preventing many problems related to the appearance of pathogens in food.

Another benefit of fixed industrial cold storage is that it is designed and built taking into account the structure of your business. On the other hand, those of modular origin are built within the establishment, which allows them to be expanded in the future or moved if the establishment changes location.

Freezers, on the other hand, have a thermally insulated compartment and a refrigeration system that helps keep food cold, thus preventing it from decomposing. It preserves the products in temperatures below 0ºC, generally between -30ºC and -4ºC. Its purpose is to stop the enzymatic activity of the food so that its organoleptic properties are not altered, thus losing its quality.

Why choose cold storage?

When choosing the refrigerators for your premises, at NSSPL, we help you prepare the project and install the equipment that best suits your requirements. If you intend to properly preserve the products you offer, then you should choose cold storage adapted to the space of the venue.

The fixed cold storage has a greater capacity to preserve food and allows air to circulate between the products. The modular has less space so it limits the number of groceries to store. These are more used in supermarkets and you can take this into account if your company belongs to this branch.

When choosing cold stores, decide on the most suitable one: you can choose between those with traditional doors or hermetic and isothermal sliding doors. It is recommended that your cold storage has closures both outside and inside.

Make sure that your cold stores have an appropriate relationship between the operating time of the motor and its rest periods, if there is a good rapport between these processes you will have greater energy savings. Everything else, from your project to installation and maintenance, leave it in our expert hands.

Now, let’s learn what is the cold storage plant cost.

What is the approximate cold storage plant cost?
