A closed room that is intentionally cooled to a temperature of just above freezing is also referred to as a cold room. Cooling usually occurs electrically or by means of gas. Slowing down chemical reactions and the growth of micro-organisms is the objective of a cold room. Rotting or ripening is unwanted.
Cold rooms are usually used by companies that work with perishable goods, such as the food industry, catering industry and hospitals with laboratories. Additionally, there are large cold storages, that consist of multiple cold rooms for various products and/or customers.
Depending on the product, a cold room is built that is cooled in a controlled way. For example, the storage of apples requires a different kind of cooling than meat.
The function of a cold room can be compared to that of a household refrigerator, but this type is not intended for household purposes and can often not be moved. The cold room is usually part of the building it is located in. Due to the construction and the larger sizes, the industrial refrigerator is often much better insulated than an ordinary refrigerator, because it includes an extra insulation layer with air in between the refrigerator and the (warm) outside air.
Insulating cold room doors
Much of the valuable generated cold energy in a cold room is lost when the doors are opened. You can save on this by attuning the choice of type and size of your insulating doors to your logistics process. In case the door is frequently opened, an automatic operation will yield energy saving, because the door opens and closes more quickly.
