Breakdowns can be catastrophic for cold storage warehouses, and require a fast and effective response to avoid the damaging consequences associated with rising temperatures in rooms where products are stored. Matt Watson, sales manager at Aggreko, explains how emergency cold storage units offer warehouse owners and operators a swift, reliable solution in these circumstances.
Cold stores can contain millions of pounds worth of stock at any one time and are reliant on chilling systems to keep air temperature at -22°C or below, ensuring product integrity. If these systems were to break down, any influx of ambient air into the cold store can have a major detrimental effect on this stock. Indeed, if store temperature increases by just a few degrees any stored frozen goods may need to be thrown away, at large financial cost.
