Storing perishable goods from all parts of the world at different temperatures at the UK’s busiest airport is a demanding job. This was the challenge facing J & E Hall condensing units in a project as part of a project to build a new £750,000 cold store at the large London airport.
Products of animal origin arrive at the cold store on a daily basis, packaged in wooden crates to be opened and examined by experts from the Port of Health for signs of disease and contamination. Perishable foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals also pass through the secure, quarantined cold store, run by an international passenger and airfreight transporter.
J & E Hall’s commercial distributor AFR Refrigeration chose J & E Hall commercial condensing units for the new 220 sq metre cold store. A freezer room where goods are kept at –25°C, a chill store, an inspection room and a lobby area with a constant requirement of 12°C meant that it was never going to be a one-temperature fits all solution.
AFR Refrigeration’s John Purbrick said: “The equipment had to be durable and reliable – ease of maintenance was important – with low noise levels. That’s why we selected the J & E Hall condensing units."
