A Guide to Refrigeration
The first known method of artificial refrigeration was demonstrated by William Cullen at the University of Glasgow in 1756.
Basic Refrigeration Principle
If you place a cup of hot coffee on a table and leave it for a while, the heat in the coffee is transferred to the cup, the table and the surrounding air. As the heat is transferred, the coffee in time cools down. Using the same principle, refrigeration works by removing heat from a product and transferring that heat to the outside air.

Blast chillers are designed to rapidly bring the temperature of food down in batches to a required temperature in order to retain its integrity and also to minimise the risk of contamination. The food is then moved to a freezer or cool room for storage.
These are used extensively in hotels and in hospital catering where food is prepared in advance and then reheated later.
Ice Machines produce ice cubes and are used mainly in hospitals, bars, restaurants, sea food wholesalers and retailers, food service areas, vegetable growers and wholesalers, laboratories, etc.
We have well trained technicians so we can also service and maintain your equipment to ensure you get the longest product life.
