Many of you struggling to maintain temperature control in refrigerated or freezer environments, have likely spent thousands on maintenance, repairs, and energy loss over time. You're probably thinking that it's time to replace or update your refrigeration systems. However, our experience in this industry has taught us that more often than not, this is not the answer. In time, you'll be no closer to solving the problem and will be suffering the same headaches all over again. Trust us, the ice -build up around your doorways, including the floor and walls is more likely to be a result of an ineffective Door System.
We spoke to our Sales Manager about a recent example we've come across. A client was having problems controlling the temperature in his facility. He was about to sign up to a new refrigeration system which would have been a significant investment for his company. After talking to the team here at Ulti Group however, he was convinced to go with an Ulti high speed door. The decision has certainly proved worth the investment he made and maintaining temperature control in his facility has never been easier.
Wondering the reasons why?
Your door should save energy by reducing heat and humidity infiltration, improve product quality by maintaining proper temperatures and improve safety by minimizing condensation and ice build-up.
However, most of the energy loss, product damage and associated wasted money occurs at your doorways as a result of slow-moving, poor sealing doors.
Slow-moving doors result in longer door-cycle times and thus higher rates of air infiltration, making maintaining temperature control inside the freezer more difficult. Essentially, the longer the doors are open, the greater the amount of warm air enters the freezer and this causes ice to build up.
Poor-sealing cold storage doors are also an issue. Air leakage from damaged and inadequate door seals will be costing you money, as even when the doors are closed, air infiltration and difficulty maintaining environmental control further makes them an expensive choice in the long run.
Get in touch with us and we can provide a free report from our custom designed energy saving calculator designed by an NZ professor to compare traditional methods to an efficient high speed freezer door. The program has shown that by installing the right doors into a facility, you can save thousands per year in energy costs.
Ultimately, the moral of the story is don't go replacing you Refrigeration Systems until you've talked to us.
