Commercial refrigeration is the process of cooling foods and other products to safe temperatures to prevent spoilage and make them more palatable. There are many different types of commercial refrigeration systems that are used in different industries. The most common are walk-in coolers and blast chillers. Blast chillers are used to quickly cool items, while walk-in coolers are large enough to hold items that need to be kept at a certain temperature.
There are three main types of materials used in modern commercial refrigerators: metals, plastics, and composites. Metals are strong, durable, and good at conducting heat. They are commonly used to construct the exterior and evaporator coil of commercial refrigerators, as well as the condenser coils of air conditioners. Some metals are also magnetic, which makes them useful for holding up signage.
