Cold storage units, such as blast chillers, freezers and walk-in refrigerators, are generally used in restaurant kitchens, hospitals, schools and by caterers. Regular use throughout the day means that these units are designed to work hard and stand up to frequent use.
Despite their impressive longevity, cold storage units still require a little TLC from time to time to keep them in tip-top condition throughout their lifetime. This guide offers some easy and essential ways to ensure your units are safe and cost-effective for years to come.
Always make sure to use regulatory safe storage for your goods. CRS Mobile Cold Storage units are built to comply with HACCP and cGXP standards, which are internationally recognised regulatory systems. The units are designed to facilitate safe food handling and storage, prevent contamination and ensure product quality and safety, as well as safe clinical and laboratory practices.
CRS Mobile Cold Storage units have smooth, hygienic surfaces that are easy to clean. The interior panels and flooring are designed to withstand frequent cleaning without deterioration or compromising food safety. Product spills should be cleaned up immediately to prevent cross-contamination. Deep cleans can be used to focus on more intricate areas of your unit, such as areas around the fan and compressor.
Schedule regular maintenance checks by our qualified technicians to identify any potential issues and maintain the unit's optimal performance. Our units are designed for reliability and durability, but periodic maintenance is essential to ensure consistent performance.
Make sure to monitor and record the temperature data to ensure compliance with HACCP standards and the safe storage of perishable goods. CRS cold stores provide advanced temperature monitoring and control systems; get in touch with our team to learn more!
