Munters IceDry - A guide to conditioning Cold Stores

Throughout the world, different cold stores have different configurations, but none can fully resolve a problem common to all cold store operators - FROST! Water and ice create dangerous slippery conditions in the loading dock with ice building up and around the store entrances. Ice also builds up around the inside of the cold store, including the intake to the evaporator coils and the components critical for maintaining products at sub zero temperatures. This creates the need for constant defrosts and stretches the capability of the cooling apacity of your equipment, whislt using a great deal of energy. Safety issues can arise when fog forms around door entrances, cauing poor visibility. Snow accumulates on product, creating the potential for collapsing cases. Ice and snow also build up on cold store ceilings and floots with the potential to fall on people, and form dangerous uneven floors for fork lift trucks carrying loads at speed. The reduced visibility from fog also increases loading times.
