Twice yearly preventative refrigeration maintenance
Many industries today rely on the day to day operating efficiency of cold room storage. At all costs businesses need the confidence that their refrigeration system will not fail.
System failures require costly call out service and repairs, in addition to the cost of spoiled produce caused by a lack of refrigeration maintenance.
A good service and maintenance plan is critical to businesses that rely on their cold storage system to operate seamlessly all year round. It is crucial for any business that their coolroom storage facilities offer continual, long-lasting reliability and operating efficiency.
There are many moving parts, which make up each and every refrigeration system. Refrigeration systems should be checked at least every six months, once before spring and once before winter. This ensures the reliability and efficiency of a fully functioning refrigeration system.
Preventative refrigeration maintenance ensures fewer failures
It is not refrigeration systems alone that need checking and regular inspections, ice machines also need regular maintenance, these machines must be cleaned and checked for airborne yeast growth and the water filters replaced. They also require regular cleaning and inspection.
There are generally three main parts every refrigeration system needs inspected. These are the evaporator, compressor and condenser. These main operating parts need regular scheduled inspections and maintenance checks to ensure that the whole of the refrigeration system functions at peak efficiency.
Preventative refrigeration maintenance offers the benefits of fewer system failures and provides the equipment with a greater working life span
Basic refrigeration maintenance checks
Refrigeration moving parts alike a car suffer from everyday wear and tear and regularly, need to be refilled, replaced, checked and or cleaned. Routine refrigeration maintenance will run the following checks and inspections depending on the type of refrigeration system that your business has installed:
