Considerations for the use of cold rooms
During the operation of the designed cold rooms, a number of considerations must be considered:
-The cold rooms should be used in accordance with the design parameters. -5 °/+ 5 °c to the rooms designed according to the working conditions, damp and excessive hot material should not be put.
–10 °/-25 °c to the rooms designed according to the working conditions, unfrozen products should not be placed.
-If the compressor and condenser unit are located indoors, continuous ventilation of the media must be ensured.
-If the compressor and condenser unit are located in the external environment, exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
-Periodic cleaning of the condenser unit should be done, periodic maintenance should be done to authorized technicians. Strictly chemical substances should not be used for cleaning.
-The devices start to work louder than ever before, may be the signal of failures that can occur in the future. In such cases, the device should be examined by an authorised technician as soon as it is.
-If the devices are running at short intervals and there is insufficient cooling in the system, refrigerant removal has been added. In such cases, the device should be examined by an authorised technician as soon as it is.
-The rubber seals of the room door must be checked periodically
-Frequent carding on the evaporator is an indication of icing, the room door remains open or the products in the room have lost moisture. should be monitored carefully.
-the temperature and relative humidity values should be monitored and compared in all rooms.
-All system elements and products should be checked every day.
