Walk-In Coolers

Walk-in coolers are available for manufacturers without their own solution already in place. Coolers help edibles set and be de-moulded more quickly, reducing the number of moulds and carts required. Note that just because a product can be de-moulded doesn’t mean that it’s set all the way. Some edibles may need to set up to 24 hours before packaging to prevent product from sticking together, an effect that can also be mitigated by putting the edibles though a coater where they are tumbled with sugar or oil.

This self-contained indoor unit comes with a condensing unit, evaporator unit, and associated parts installed on a walk-in cooler plug. The refrigeration system includes an insulated door and light and is designed to hold product as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

PANELS – Walls and ceiling panels are constructed with tongue-and-groove, 2.5 lb. extruded polystyrene insulation sandwiched between two sheets of 26-gauge stucco-embossed galvalume steel. Each panel comes equipped with cam-action locking devices and double-barrel vinyl gaskets to allow easy walk-in assembly in the field.

FLOOR – Walk-in coolers without a floor must be installed on a ground-contact insulated concrete floor with a thermal break under each wall panel. A cooler can be installed without insulating the floor and a thermal break under each wall panel but both are recommended.

DOOR – 34” x 76” flush-mount cooler door is manufactured with foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation encapsulated between sheets of embossed, 26-gauge stucco-embossed galvalume steel. Door is right hand hinged and includes lever-action handle, light, hinges, cam-locks, door closure, lighted switch, and vapor-proof light fixture.

REFRIGERATION – Self-contained, medium temperature, single-phase, 1/2 HP, hermetic, 115 volt.
Includes condensing unit, evaporator, thermostatic expansion valve, thermostat, low pressure control, refrigerant (R404A).
Unit fits in a 25″ x 25″ ceiling panel opening:(Refrigeration is based on an altitude of 5000 feet or less)
Unit does require the installation of the evaporator condensate line, which needs to be run to a drain.
