Cold storage by definition is a temperature-controlled environment held at between -40ºC to 0ºC, used for the preservation and long term storage of perishable products in order to maintain their quality and nutritional value. Many of today's perishable products are quick frozen (ultra rapid freezing to very low temperatures of -30ºC to -40ºC) and then stored at -18ºC (unless specific products require different temperatures). Examples of various air-based cold environments include: Blast freezers; Carton / box freezers; Tunnel freezers; Fluidised (individual quick freezing); Spiral freezers; Deep freezers.
Chilled storage by definition is a temperature-controlled environment used for the short term storage of perishable products held at temperatures of 0ºC to +5ºC in order to maintain their quality and safety. Schedule 4 (Temperature Control Requirements) of the 2006 Food Hygiene Regulations required that in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, foods which are likely to support the growth of pathogenic micro-organisms or the formulation of toxins, be held at 0ºC to +5ºC unless specific products require different temperatures.
Chilled areas are also used to remove heat from products, to reduce the load on refrigeration systems. Examples of the various food types include:
UltraTemp panels deliver exceptional technical performance, and are perfect for use within chilled storage environments.
Food processing by definition is a temperature-controlled and hygiene-safe environment used for the preparation, production and processing of food, with a temperature range of +10ºC to +18ºC. The principle legislations dealing with the design and construction of food premises are the Food Safety Act 1990, Food Hygiene Regulations 2006 and Good Manufacturing Practice.
The regulations contain specific requirements for the design and construction of premises where open food is stored or prepared. All food premises should consider the following main criteria:
UltraTemp panels deliver exceptional technical performance, and are perfect for use within food processing environments.
