The function of Air Curtains in Cold Storage:

For cold storage,it require strict temperature and humidity control to prevent product spoilage and maintain the suitable storage environments . Air curtains is a vital machine by creating an invisible air barrier at doorways and entrances, preventing the infiltration of warm air and the escape of cold air.

The benefit of cold storage air curtain

1. Energy Savings: 

It can reduce the refrigeration costs and energy consumption by reducing the loss of cooling air. As the refrigeration system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature

2. Improved Temperature Control: 

Prevents cold air loss, which helps maintain consistent temperatures.Reduces temperature fluctuations and ensures optimal storage conditions

3. Enhanced Hygiene and Food Safety: 

Minimize airborne contaminants and pests, reducing the risk of pollution,Reduces condensation and mold growth, which can compromise food quality.

4. Increased Employee Comfort and Safety:

Reduce the temperature fluctuations, making the work environment more comfortable,improve visibility at entrances, reducing the risk of accidents.

5. Frost Control:

Some models are equipped with anti-frost features or can be paired with dehumidification systems to manage condensation and icing problems common in cold storage facilities

Why it need stainless steel material for the motor and frame

  1. Durability:The remarkable durability of stainless steel makes it a prime candidate for equipment that is expected to endure long hours of operation, such as air curtains. Its ability to withstand significant wear and tear ensures its longevity, making it a wise investment for businesses.
  2. Resistance to Corrosion: The inherent resistance of stainless steel to rust and corrosion makes it an ideal material for environments with high humidity or exposure to corrosive elements. This characteristic is particularly pertinent in the context of marine air curtains or in settings where the air curtain may be exposed to harsh chemicals.
  3. Tolerance to Heat: Stainless steel possesses the ability to endure high temperatures without compromising its structural integrity or succumbing to deformation. This makes it an apt choice for use in the motors of air curtains, which can generate substantial heat during operation.
  4. Hygienic Properties: The ease with which stainless steel can be cleaned, coupled with its inability to harbor bacteria, makes it a preferred choice for applications in sectors where hygiene is of utmost importance. Industries such as food processing or healthcare would particularly benefit from this feature.
  5. Aesthetic Appeal: The sleek, modern appearance of stainless steel can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a space, especially for air curtains used in customer-facing areas like retail stores or restaurants. Its clean lines and shiny surface can contribute to a professional and contemporary look.

How to choose the Right Air Curtain for Cold Storage

1.Door size and location

It is used to choose the suitable size and type of air curtain, the air curtain size should be a little longer than the door wide.

2. Temperature and humidity requirements:

If the environment with high humidity, we need to consider the moisture-proof, then air curtain should be made of stainless steel material and enclosed motor,

3. Traffic flow and frequency:

If the door needs to open frequently, then we can use the door switch to save energy, as air curtain only works when the door is open.

4. Noise levels:

It is also important when people pass by the entrance,or especially if the cold room is in close proximity to an office or other work areas.

5. Air pressure and air flow:

The air pressure can not be too high or too less, it can reach the ground properly. then it can  ensure that the cold air does not go outside
