Energy efficiency in food processing- energy efficient refrigeration
We show how minimizing air infiltration through doorways in industrial refrigeration storage spaces reduces sensible and latent loads, cutting costs during the cooling and defrost cycles. Learn the driving forces behind air infiltration, as well as how to reduce it. We examine strip curtains and air curtains, and discuss how to calculate flow rates and energy savings. In addition, we show you how to evaluate defrost frequency and dwell time through careful observation and monitoring—a crucial step not to be missed when evaluating energy efficiency at your facility.
