During the summer of 2016, our service team in Lexington, Kentucky, was tasked with a project that included designing and installing an industrial walk-in cooler and freezer for Senko (U.S.A), Inc.
Measuring 23,000 square feet in size, configuring these refrigeration systems presented several challenges. Chief among those was the need for the units to run at different temperatures consistently throughout the day + 34 degrees in the cooler and -20 degrees in the freezer. We needed to find a cost-effective solution for the owners that still allowed the systems to run at optimal temperatures. We delivered by ...Read More

Additionally, the remote location of the facility meant it didn’t have a nearby water source sufficient enough to sustain the necessary hazard design.
