Here is a short but extremely important list of suggested maintenance tips that you may want to implement at your facility;

– Gaskets: refrigeration systems work hard to achieve proper product temperature. Routinely inspect the door gaskets or seals on all coolers and freezers. Check for tears, rips, or missing magnetic strips in gaskets. If gaskets are found to be worn out replace them immediately. You’re losing cold air, and making your system work harder to replace that air. This increases power consumption and lessens refrigerator systems’ life span.

 

– Door hinges and closers: most doors and hinges on refrigeration units close properly utilizing spring cartridges.  Be sure to inspect these mechanical hinges insure proper operation. Larger cooler and freezer doors- especially walk-ins normally use hydraulic door closers. Doors that are not closed all the way in this matter contribute to excessive run time, inefficient use of energy; shorten the life of the equipment and causes evaporator coils to ice up.

 

– Calculate accurate internal food temperature: using a product sensing thermometer, is far superior to an air sensing thermometer in refrigeration’s units due to rapidly changing ambient conditions. Refrigeration systems using an air sensing thermometer only reveal how cold the air is in a refrigeration unit at the moment you open it. There are situations when it does not give an accurate picture of a product’s actual temperature. Product sensing thermometers are much more accurate.
