ONE OF THE MOST CRITICAL COMPONENTS OF YOUR COMMERCIAL OR INDUSTRIAL OPERATION IS YOUR LARGE-SCALE REFRIGERATION UNIT’S FUNCTIONALITY.
FLUCTUATING TEMPERATURES GOT YOU DOWN?
It is frustrating when your refrigeration system fails to maintain a consistent temperature. Spoilage of perishable goods or other products, can lead to large financial losses.

Designed and installed a new refrigeration system and reconfigured a 600-amp service to serve the warehouse expansion. All new equipment uses R-22 refrigerant rather than the existing R-502 refrigerant. Sub-cooling was increased, allowing more capacity with less horsepower.
Relocated two existing 200-amp panels, installed two 100-amp panels and a 150-amp service for forklift recharging, and relocated all light fixtures.
BLAST FREEZER PRODUCTIVITY IMPROVEMENTS
Improvements doubled blast freezing capability in a 200,000+ sq. ft. ammonia processing and cold storage plant. The 1,800 sq. ft blast freezer ceiling was transitioned to maximize evaporator airflow, high-speed booster fans were integrated into product shelving, and the shelving was staggered to position products just 6″ apart, maximizing yield in each blast session.
These improvements reduced blast freezing by 50% – from 3 days to just 1 ½.
“Exceptional is not a stretch to describe your service and team. You are true to your word and philosophy. It shows in the people I have interacted with that work for you. Today’s facility management is so much about partnering with service providers. Thank you for all that you and your company provide to ours.”

refrigeration system FAQ’S
Can I retrofit or upgrade my existing commercial refrigeration system to meet current energy efficiency standards?
In industries like supermarkets, refrigeration systems use about 40-60% of electricity consumption. With commercial refrigeration being one of the largest energy consumers, optimizing your system can significantly save operating costs.
In many cases, retrofitting or upgrading your system for performance saves you on costs without replacing the entire system. After conducting a baseline energy audit, one of our project managers or engineers can better understand what retrofits make sense for the system. Some common retrofits or upgrades include:
- Install VFDs on condenser fan motors
- Installing Smart Controls
- Compressor Rebuilds
- Valve Replacements
- Door replacements
What does scheduled maintenance and inspections for my commercial refrigeration system look like?
Maintenance and inspections should be performed monthly to quarterly, depending on your business operations. A refrigeration technician performs regular tasks that keep your system running efficiently, minimizing downtime and prolonging its lifespan. While maintenance can depend on the design and manufacture guidelines, here are some common tasks:
- Check electrical connections
- Repair gas leaks, lubricate hinges, clean gaskets
- Check refrigeration levels
- Check the calibration of the thermometer
- Disassemble and clean ice makers
- Inspect parts for wear and tear
what would cause a refrigerator to stop getting cold?
There are several probable reasons why a walk-in cooler or refrigerator may stop getting cold. Some common causes that interrupt the basic refrigeration cycle include:
- Power issues
- Thermostat problems
- Dirty condenser coils
- Faulty compressor
- Evaporator fan problems
- Defrost system issues
- Insufficient airflow
