Walk in Freezer - Weston Super Mare


King William Butchers is a family run Business in Weston-Super-Mare that was recently purchased by the Trents Traditional Meats group to add to their growing range of butchers shops. Trents has over 30 years experience supplying the highest quality meats direct to the catering industry and retail sales through their butchers shops.

The new owners wanted to increase the frozen food and meat storage as they were looking to replace the two chest freezers that they were using to store all the frozen food. After discussing the requirements with the customer it was decided a walk in freezer would be the best option to increase the frozen food storage for the shop.

There was very limited space to install the walk-in-freezer and we had to make some changes to the room that the new walk in freezer was going to be installed into. Our NICEIC registered electricians made the alterations to the electrics and moved electrical sockets, the floor was also levelled. The new walk-in-freezer was 1.37m Width x 2.17m Length x 2.00m Height and will provide nearly 5 times more storage than the old chest freezers, stock control will also be greatly improved.

The walk-in-freezer was installed in a day and a half with the minimum of disruption to the customer.

Running costs are a factor in all businesses and we installed the most energy efficient equipment available so the customer will see a decrease in energy bills after replacing the older chest freezers. We achieved this by installing a Danfoss Optyma Plus™ outdoor condensing unit and a Searl Tec 4-5 indoor evaporator unit.

Danfoss Optyma Plus™ outdoor unit.
The highly optimised Micro Channel Heat Exchanger and electronic controller contribute to considerable energy savings, making the Optyma Plus™ up to 20% more economical than an equivalent product. The Optyma Plus™ can be located even in residential areas because the smart compressor design, acoustic insulation and fan speed reduction during low capacity operation periods make the Optyma Plus™ the quietest solution today to respect the environment

Searl TEC4-5 Indoor Unit
The Searl TEC4-5 is a small 'blow through' unit using high efficiency EC fans as standard, providing a significant reduction in energy consumption and therefore running costs. With a wide operating range + 10 °C to -40 °C, the coolers are suitable for both high, medium and low temperature applications in areas such as reach-in and walk - in cold cabinets, cold rooms and similar situations.

The customer was very pleased with the high quality finish of the cold room and the easy to read and use multi-function electronic controller.
