At TKS Cold Storage Mfg. and Construction, we proudly offer refrigeration equipment from renowned manufacturers such as Copeland®, Heatcraft®, Larkin®, Bohn®, Zero Zone, RSI, Vari Kool, and other leading brands.
With over 50 years of experience, refrigeration engineering is at the core of our services. Our team of experts specializes in engineering systems for a wide range of applications, including Refrigerated Warehouses, Food Processing Plants, Food Distribution Centers, Produce Industry, Seafood, Meat and Poultry Industries, Floral Industry, Bakery Industry, Beer Brewing Industry, Supermarkets, Restaurants, Composite Materials, Biotech Rooms, Environmental Testing Chambers, Mortuaries, and more.
We collaborate closely with our customers to engineer an equipment package that not only minimizes your capital investment but also reduces operating costs while meeting your product demands effectively.
We specialize in providing highly skilled tradespeople for a wide range of installation services, including panels, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, concrete, and general construction work. In compliance with California regulations, systems weighing 50 lbs or more are required to use ammonia refrigeration. It’s important to note that an ammonia system typically necessitates a technician on-site 24/7, whereas CO2 systems do not require round-the-clock personnel.
Regardless of whether you choose ammonia or CO2, you can expect significant utility cost savings. Our experienced crews are equipped to deliver a system that ensures your installation is handled by qualified professionals, providing your business with peace of mind.
Our precision engineering approach is tailored to meet the refrigeration demands during your peak periods. We understand that your refrigeration requirements are critical to the success of your business. That’s why we invest the time and effort to thoroughly assess the variables involved, rather than relying on generic load calculations for sizing your rooms.
Trust TKS Cold Storage Mfg. and Construction for meticulous engineering that aligns with your specific needs and ensures optimal performance. Your success is our priority, and we are committed to delivering solutions that drive efficiency and cost-effectiveness for your refrigeration systems.
Utilizing a standard generic load for preparing your quote may not deliver the desired performance for your system. Especially on hot days when you’re loading substantial amounts of product, the system may struggle to meet your expectations.
Even a slight temperature differential, such as 5°F, caused by product entering your room can significantly impact the overall room temperature. This, in turn, can compromise the integrity of your products and potentially harm your reputation. It’s crucial to account for the heat load generated by your products, which your system needs to extract from the cold room. Failure to consider this load properly can result in extended extraction times, potentially lasting hours or even days.
Additionally, when sizing your equipment, it’s essential to factor in the door opening time. Approximately 40% of refrigeration loss, measured in BTUs, occurs at the door. Neglecting this aspect can lead to energy inefficiency and increased strain on your system.
At TKS Cold Storage Mfg. and Construction, we understand the intricacies involved in accurately sizing and designing refrigeration systems. We go beyond generic approaches, taking into account the specific variables and demands of your operation. By considering factors such as product load, temperature differentials, and door opening times, we ensure that your equipment performs optimally, maintains product integrity, and minimizes energy waste. Trust us to deliver tailored solutions that prioritize both your operational efficiency and product quality.
Even during regular daily operations, employees may not always be mindful of leaving doors open, and in some cases, they may do so for personal comfort, causing a drop in box temperature. By accounting for these factors, you can ensure effective recovery of BTUs by your refrigeration system.
It’s important to avoid overreacting to these situations and oversizing your system. Both oversizing and undersizing can shorten the lifespan of your refrigeration system.
When a system is oversized, it rapidly recovers heat exchange, leading to frequent short cycling. This prevents the condensing unit from running for an adequate duration. Ideally, a system should run for approximately 16 hours a day. An analogous example is your car: If you only drive short distances at high speeds every day, it can damage the engine. Insufficient running time prevents proper lubrication and results in thicker oil, ultimately reducing the engine’s lifespan.
Moreover, greatly oversizing your system incurs higher capital and construction costs, including equipment, electrical, Freon, and structural expenses. Conversely, an undersized system will run continuously, leading to early failure and increased maintenance and utility costs.
Taking the time to understand these variables can ensure a lifetime of successful refrigeration system use while saving you thousands of dollars along the way.
