The use of cold storage units is becoming a common practice in the food market industry. Previous practices didn’t guarantee the right conservation of fresh products, but as technology has improved cold storage technology, these perishable goods can be delivered in their original state right from the source to their final destination/consumer. These refrigerated containers can also be moved around and placed inside or outside, perfect for both personal and business use.
The full list of benefits of working with cold storage units is nearly endless, but we’ll just list the top five more relevant ones to offer some awareness about how this tech is the way of the future.
Wide Range of Uses
One of the greatest features found on portable cold storage units are their temperature controls, and while the main use given to refrigerated containers is to safeguard food perishable goods that need certain temperature conditions, they can also be used by other industries to store another type of items. The medical industry for example uses them to keep their products and chemical compounds stable at a constant temperature at all times, even upon deliverance.
Cold storage units can keep these products under their ideal environmental conditions for as long as it’s needed since their control allow for specific settings (from as high as 30°C to as low as -30C°) that once set require little to no supervision.
Wide Range of Sizes
The different sizes (from 10ft to 45ft) available, their portability and ability to be combined to create custom-made units, makes them the perfect cold storage solution for any type of businesses, big and small.
When you run a business, there’s no such thing as enough storage space, especially when you run a food-based operation such as a restaurant or as a frozen goods distributor. Portable cold storage units are a game changer in either of those markets, making the old cooler technology impractical due in part to space and heating issues. Modern cold storage units are built to offer state of the art performance, without generating excessive heat and by offering noise reduction features that won’t disturb the surroundings where the unit is located.
Accessibility and Backup
The use of the internal space on cold storage units is always left to the needs of the user in accordance with the demands of their business. Some businesses prefer to pack their units with shelf racks, while others just need to pile up their items in a specific way.
They are also a great solution if you need to secure your items or supplies against power outages. Being lined with the necessary hardware they will keep a cold environment for longer periods, unlike normal refrigerated units that without electricity, will gradually lose their cooling capabilities in a short period of time.
We all know that fruits and vegetables stored at room temperature can spoil quickly. With cold storage units, this will no longer be an issue because all these fresh products will be kept at the correct temperature and moisture levels, extending its shelf life and keeping spoils to a minimum. Restaurants for example can buy their supplies in bulk and store them for longer periods of time, this will help to minimise waste and consequently save money.
