Refrigeration Design And Service


Bespoke Refrigeration Design

Our team of experienced engineers will support you through the entire project from start to finish from the initial design of your refrigeration system to installation. All our projects we undertake across commercial and industrial sectors are bespoke, so you are able to tell us what requirements you need, and we will work with you using our own experience and knowledge to provide you with a solution that meets your business needs.

We aim to deliver with minimal disruption a bespoke refrigeration design for you. Once completed, we have an amazingly friendly team to ensure you receive assistance with any maintenance and aftercare needs you may have.

Our refrigeration system designs are proven to offer excellent efficiency ratings with energy savings of up to 20% on replacing HFC’s with C02.

Importance Of A Professional Refrigeration System Design

Energy Efficiency in Refrigeration Design:

  • Proper insulation selection and installation to minimise heat transfer
  • Use of energy-efficient compressors and motors
  • Implementation of variable speed drives to adjust cooling capacity as needed
  • Smart defrost cycles to reduce unnecessary energy consumption
  • Heat recovery systems to repurpose waste heat
  • Strategic placement of components to optimise airflow and reduce workload

Ensuring Compliance with Regulations:

  • Adherence to food safety standards (e.g., HACCP guidelines)
  • Compliance with environmental regulations on refrigerant use (e.g., phasing out of HFCs)
  • Meeting energy efficiency standards set by governmental bodies
  • Proper documentation and record-keeping systems for audits
  • Regular monitoring and reporting capabilities built into the system

Importance of Customisation in Refrigeration Systems:

  • Tailoring temperature zones for different products (e.g. dairy vs. produce)
  • Designing layout to match specific workflow needs of the business
  • Accommodating unique architectural features of the facility
  • Incorporating specialised features for specific industries (e.g. blast freezing for seafood)
  • Scalability options for growing business

How Proper Design Contributes to Safety:

  • Adequate ventilation to prevent build-up of potentially harmful gases
  • Proper placement of emergency shut-off valves and controls
  • Non-slip flooring in cold storage areas to prevent accidents
  • Adequate lighting for safe navigation and product inspection
  • Alarm systems for temperature fluctuations or system malfunctions
  • Backup power systems to maintain critical operations during outages

Role of System Integration in Modern Refrigeration Design

  • Integration with building management systems for centralised control
  • Real-time monitoring and remote diagnostics capabilities
  • Data logging for performance analysis and predictive maintenance
  • Integration with inventory management systems
  • Compatibility with IoT devices for enhanced control and monitoring
  • User-friendly interfaces for staff to easily manage and monitor systems

Testimonials The Flower Bowl

Here at the flower bowl, we have a state of the art co2 refrigeration system. This system is integral to our business, when there’s a fault with it many of the services we provide are unable to continue. Since the system was installed it has had various technical issues. After lots of back and forth, we decided to go out and see if another company would be able to help us diagnose and rectify these issues. Along came DD Cooling who came highly recommended. Over time they have been able to get the system operating fully and make it reliable, this hasn’t been an easy task. It has been time-consuming and I’m sure head-scratching at times. Now the system has been made reliable they continue to service and maintain the equipment to an excellent standard.
