What is a cold room?
A cold room is a chamber that’s kept at a particular temperature, usually to refrigerate certain food products. It is essentially an entire room that has been turned into a refrigerator. Many restaurants, pubs, hotels, and amusement parks boast a cold room; they’re exceptionally useful for establishments that require lots of frozen or refrigerated supplies on site.
What is the purpose of a cold room?
Cold rooms allow businesses to store lots of supplies that need to be refrigerated or frozen. Most often, those supplies are food, and the businesses are restaurants and other hospitality venues. However, pharmacies and clinics can also use cold rooms to store temperature-sensitive chemicals and medical supplies like vaccines. Cold rooms can either refrigerate or freeze their contents depending on your needs.
How does a cold room work?

The components of a cold room work together to absorb and remove the heat from the space. They use a mixture of refrigerant chemicals, insulation, and machinery.

 Usually, a refrigerant in gas form is put into a compressor. The compressor pressures the gas and then allows it to expand, which loads it with energy. Energy equals heat, and the now-heated refrigerant passes throughout the workings of the cold room. As it does so, it meets with high pressures, which turn it into a liquid. The liquid refrigerant absorbs heat from all around the room before passing over some evaporator coils, which cool the refrigerant, turn it back into a gas, and send it back to the compressor to start over. Meanwhile, fans are distributing the now cold air evenly.

That’s the cycle that keeps a cold room at the desired temperature. To make sure everything works the way it’s meant to, it’s important to check your fans and coils for ice build-up and make sure you have enough refrigerant.

What are the different types of cold room?

There are four types of cold room: storage, freezing, deep freezing, and blast chiller rooms.

A storage cold room is also called a positive temperature cold room because it keeps its contents at temperatures above zero degrees. These cold rooms are basically massive refrigerators, and they store the same sorts of products, such as short-term perishable food, condiments, drinks, and some medicinal products.

A freezing cold room, on the other hand, maintains sub-zero temperatures, which is why it’s also called a negative-temperature cold room. Inside them, you’ll find many of the same frozen foods you’d find in a household freezer. Medical facilities also use them for organic material and vaccines.

A deep-freezing tunnel keeps supplies even colder, at around -30 degrees at the very least. You’ll see these in many factories, where the products are moved around the chamber and frozen that way. They’re usually used for meat products.

And a blast chiller cold room is all about speed. These rooms are meant to very quickly chill their contents to kill off any contaminants. They’re mainly used for hygiene and sanitation rather than storage, and they work wonders for many industrial kitchens.

What temperature should a cold room be?

That really depends on the sort of cold room you have. A storage cold room will usually have a couple of settings depending on how long you would like to store your supplies. They generally range between -2 and 12 degrees Celsius. Anything higher than 12 usually means maintenance or repairs.

A freezing cold room keeps things at -18 degrees Celsius or colder. The ideal freezer maintains temperatures between -18 and -22. If you’re worried that yours might be malfunctioning, we’re happy to help with maintenance or repairs.

Does a cold room freeze?

A walk-in freezer is a type of cold room that can definitely freeze its contents to safe standards for food health and safety as well as medical protocols.

A storage cold room is more like a refrigerator and usually only keeps products at just below freezing, at -2 at the coldest. These don’t go any colder unless there’s something wrong.

Does a cold room need ventilation?

Yes, a good cold room features good ventilation. Refrigeration usually creates plenty of moisture, and without ventilation, that moisture is just sitting in an enclosed space for long periods. That leads to issues like mould and even some kinds of fungus, which can be a big health hazard in many industries.

We at Batchelor also work with air conditioning, so we’re experts when it comes to good ventilation. You can trust us to handle your cold room.

How do you store food in a cold room?

You want to be aware of all the different refrigeration needs of your supplies. Which ones need refrigeration and which ones need freezing? If you need to store both, you’ll almost certainly need two different cold rooms for each. Meanwhile, different refrigerated goods have different ideal temperatures; meat is usually kept colder than fruits and vegetables, for instance. By knowing the different temperatures, you can find the perfect setting for all of them

It’s also important to keep products that are expiring soon in plain sight, on top of or in front of longer-lasting products. Lastly, you’ll want to avoid keeping raw foods near cooked foods or foods that don’t require cooking. They run the risk of contaminating each other and spoiling faster.

How much does a cold room cost?

Cold rooms can range between £4000 and £5500. That usually includes the cost of installation. The price will vary a lot depending on the size of the cold room and whether it can function on a single setting or multiple.
