Whether you manage a care home kitchen or restaurant, commercial refrigeration is crucial to ensuring businesses can keep a stock of food that stays fresh. When commercial equipment breaks down not only can it be an expense to repair, but often a breakdown can cause the food to spoil also costing you stock and loss of revenue.
The best way to minimise repairs on a commercial fridge is to undertake frequent maintenance and servicing by an experience and qualified commercial refrigeration engineer.
The benefits of carrying out annual planned preventative maintenance (also known as a PPM) on commercial refrigeration not only reduces the likelihood of breakdowns but can also save costs in reactive call outs, lowers energy consumption, keeps your business F-Gas compliant and can increase the overall lifespan of the appliance.
At CMS our team of Commercial Refrigeration Engineers are highly experienced in ensuring our customers remain legally compliant with regards to F-Gas regulations as well as carrying out quality and checks to ensure equipment is at optimal operational efficiency.
As standard an annual maintenance programme on a commercial fridge will include but is not limited to quality and operational checks in the following areas:
How often a commercial fridge should be serviced each year varies upon the usage of the appliance. At a minimum it is recommend that a refrigerator service should be undertaken once a year.
Routine maintenance can help prevent the need for emergency repairs and can drive down the amount you spend on energy and water to keep these systems running.
Without commercial refrigeration repair services, dust and dirt can build up in system that blocks fans and vents. This makes your system work harder, driving up energy costs and affecting the lifespan of your equipment. This can lead to a range of faults including frost build-up and temperature issues.
At CMS many customers within the hospitality, healthcare and manufacturing industries will often undertake their Commercial refrigerator service as part of their annual planned preventative maintenance on all of their catering equipment.
Depending on how much wear and tear they sustain, commercial refrigeration, on average, has a lifespan of over ten years. With proper maintenance, some high-quality models can last upwards of fifteen to twenty years.
When commercial equipment is not properly maintained, it interferes with efficiency, which in turn decreases life span.
Due to our network of directly employed commercial refrigeration engineers, CMS are uniquely placed to provide same day call outs and endeavour to resolve the issue within their first visit.
Due to our relationships with a range of manufacturers spanning over 22 years, CMS carry and stock most of the necessary spares and parts to repair commercial refrigeration issues.
F-Gas is an abbreviation for fluorinated gas. F-gases are a group of man-made gases which have a variety of industrial applications, such as use in commercial refrigeration,
F-Gas regulations were put in place in the UK on 1st Jan 2015 to ensure that everyone using or manufacturing such systems abide by the current environmentally friendly routines
The main focus of the F-Gas Regulations is to minimise emissions of F-gases from products and equipment, through containment, leak reduction and repair and recovery. When it comes to catering refrigeration, the responsibility for complying with the regulation lies with the caterers, operators and users (as opposed to those selling or servicing it).
F-Gas rules and regulations apply to all sizes and types of businesses operating an air conditioning, refrigeration system with the CO2 equivalent charge weight of 5 tonnes and above. In order to comply with F-Gas regulations operators of commercial refrigeration need to consider:
Preventing leakage – have leaks repaired as soon as possible by certified personnel and keep service and maintenance records detailing quantity and type of F-gas used.
Ensure the proper recovery of F-gases by certified personnel, to ensure their recycling, reclamation or destruction
As part of CMS’ Planned preventative maintenance package for commercial refrigerators which includes routine servicing, customers can also benefit from CMS maintaining their F-Gas records, keeping them legally compliant with F-Gas Regulations.
