Types of Cold Storage
Cold chain technology goes far beyond simple refrigerated container, ranging from blast freezers or cold rooms to specialist wine units or reefer trucks
These versatile units can be used in a fixed location, but typically needed for haulage on reefer trucks. Using air or water-based cooling systems, these can maintain goods in a steady temperature from -65 to +40 deg C! They can be customized for walk-in or cargo doors, with a range of interior shelving or lighting as needed, and range in length from 10 to over 40 ft.
Blast Freezers & Chillers
A blast or shock freezer is used to very rapidly bring down the temperature of (usually) foodstuffs or fresh produce, freezing them very quickly. This rapid freezing produces smaller ice crystals, doing less damage and preserving food at higher quality with less risk of bacterial growth.
Walk-In Cold Rooms
Also known as Grade A mega cold storage, these are essentially very large refrigerators that typically maintain temperature at 0-5 deg C. Common and useful in industrial or warehouse settings, as well as mass service venues like schools or hospitals.
Pharma Grade Cold Storage
Many modern pharmaceuticals contain high-value ingredients with a defined shelf life and strict requirements for storage and transport. The cold chain requirements for these products is growing rapidly. Their storage is highly regulated, and must deliver tight tolerances for temperature and humidity.
To maintain quality through the delivery chain, beverages such as wine, beer or liquor require storage not just at the optimal temperature, but with carefully controlled humidity and light exposure.
The types of storage described above cover the most common needs. If your business has more specialized needs in terms of volume, temperature, access or other considerations - don't hesitate to Contact Us, our facilities can deliver whatever you may need!
