Controlling Temperature and Saving Energy

by Installing Glass Doors for Chiller and Freezer
Temperature Control

Are you looking at controlling the temperature of your products in the chiller more effectively?
Are you conducting HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) audits?

What are some of the issues store owners faced when trying to maintain the desired temperature
for the displayed products?

For an open display chiller, with no door or a barrier between
the displayed products and the surrounding higher room temperature,
it can get a little tricky to reach the a consistent temperature for the chiller
when the cold air from the room’s air-conditioner vent is blown towards it.
Sometimes, chillers are placed near the entrance of the store.
Warm air from the surrounding can cause the chiller’s temperature to go up.
That can cause frequent high temperature issue.

Fruit and vegetables go through a precooling process immediately after harvest to preserve their quality and their shelf life by removing the field heat. When the cooling process is completed, they are stored in their preferred temperature ready for distribution to the retail markets and finally to the consumers.
*The cold chain should not be interrupted as the supplies make their journey from the field to the chiller in the store. Refrigeration is key in enhancing the quality of the harvest and prolonging the shelf-life.

While conducting HACCP audits, there can be circumstances where freshly prepared food like warm sushi rolls’ temperature is captured at the point when they have just been placed in the chiller. The temperature has not been cooled prior to storage or they have just been sent out of the kitchen. So adopting the correct procedures from food processing to food storage is essential. Also, ensure that the measuring device has been calibrated and is accurate.
