Knowing about the cold storage requirements in West Africa – Install TSSC cold store panels

The industrial refrigeration market has grown to a huge extent in recent years. This process involves using different processes and machines. Industrial refrigeration is machines that use the chilling process to release heat from items. Cold storages act as a savior for industries like medicine, food processing, vegetable wholesalers, and brewing…etc. So, the cooling process involves transferring heat to maintain a chilled condition inside the storage unit. Cold rooms are important for trades that involve storing and selling perishable items. It is like a big-size storage facility where you can store items in large amounts.

There are various kinds of cold rooms, and most of them depend on storage needs. TSSC Group experts in West Africa can decide what type of cold rooms are ideal for your business. We can modify and customize as per your requirements. Also, industrial systems inside a cold storeroom in West Africa consume electrical power. This is also a reason why it makes sense to install insulated panels inside. This aids in maintaining a constant low temperature without any escape of coolness. It lowers your energy bills which help to save money. The best modification you could do to your cold storage is to add cold store panels for rigid insulation.

TSSC panels possess higher redundancy

TSSC insulated cold store panels in West Africa manufactures panels that have higher redundancy. Our panels offer strength and stability to the cold storerooms. We implement technology that is cost-effective and eco-friendly. Cold store rooms offer thermal insulation, control grease, bacteria, and dust. Ask us what type of panels would be the best for your cold store? We recommend panels having a minimum R-value of up to 40. This ensures adequate thermal efficiency for cold rooms. Check the thickness and weight of the panels before you decide on one.

Use of our cold store panels

Cold store panels are used for rooftops, walls, and flooring. The insulated cold store panels are formed by injecting polyurethane foam in between metal cladding at a very high density. These panels have monolithic construction and can maintain temperature and humidity inside the structure.

Simple installation process

Installation is very simple, which depends on the size and type of cold storage room. The panels are good for cold rooms occupying a lot of space. For installation, you would need:

  • Cold store panels
  • Measuring tape
  • Screws and screwdriver
  • Allen key

The panels are cut and shaped to the exact size, and the contractors fit the panels perfectly, covering all space and every inch of the wall, floor, or rooftop. There are no gaps to ensure the loss of air.

Our panels are ideal for hot and humid Africa

The climate in Africa is hot and humid, so there is a huge demand for cold storage. TSSC designs high-quality refrigerated truck box in West Africa which are used in portable refrigeration. TSSC uses project management software for the perfect delivery of our solutions.

Cold Chain – Insulated Doors

There are also a number of speciality doors available for both on-site facilities and transport vehicles which help to maintain temperatures. It is not only the automation which creates a more efficient doorway but think about how many times during the day that a forklift/vehicle operator may be required to exit their vehicle to open a regular manual facility door, and then get back, drive through the opening and exit the vehicle once again to close the door behind them (and if they do indeed close it behind them each time). Every second that the door remains open longer than it needs to –
you are losing valuable temperature conditioned air.

TSSC supplies a choice of CFC free polyurethane insulated doors in different thickness for various applications. These include:

  1. Sliding doors from ITALY and DENMARK
  2. Hinged doors from USA and France
  3. Traffic swing type doors with glass porthole from MIV
    (Italy)
  4. Hydraulic self-closing doors
  5. Controlled atmosphere doors
  6. Horizontal and Vertical Automatic doors from Europe
  7. Single and Double leaf swing doors from Europe
  8. Display thermal glass doors
  9. Insulated sectional doors
  10. High Speed Curtain Doors
  11. Controlled Atmosphere Entrance

Cold Storage Business

As demand for perishable products grows worldwide, efficient and effective cold chain management requires strong partnerships and quick reactions.

Shippers have been managing the challenge of transporting temperature-sensitive goods since the 1700s, when British fishermen began using ice to preserve their catch while at sea. Today, the global market for cold chain products is expanding rapidly.

Since cold chain logistics requires maintaining temperature integrity, controlling all the processes
involved means high levels of integration and coordination. Each supply chain step and
partner—from farmer/harvester or producer to the ultimate seller—shares responsibility and there
are multiple phases and facilities along the way which contribute to keeping products fresh.

What is a cold room?

A cool room or cold room is a large refrigerated room or building designed for storage of goods in an environment below the outdoor temperature. Products needing refrigeration include fruit, vegetables, seafood, meat, medicines, vaccines Cold rooms are often located near shipping ports
used for import/export of produce or in Major SuperMarkets, at Farms, Hotels, Pharmaceutical companies, Hospitals, Blood Banks

Regulating and maintaining the right temperature and humidity to maintain and extend the life of your products can be challenging as well as risky, as different products require different temperatures to be sustained. Traditional temperature monitoring systems depend solely on the
experience of the operator who must be on-site to adjust and manage the whole system. Classification Temperature:

0 °C ~ + 22°C: Hallway, corridor, Mushroom Plant, Medicines Storage, Processing Room, Packing
Room
-5 °C ~ + 5 °C: Pre-Cooling, Keep Fresh,
-10 °C ~ -20 °C: Freezer Storage
-25 °C ~ -30 °C: Low Temperature Storage, Quick-Freeze
-35 °C ~ -40 °C: Blast Freezer, Quick-Freeze

Correctly maintaining the temperature of perishable products is necessary to preserve quality and safety from the point of harvest or manufacture through the supply chain to the consumer. For food products, failing to maintain proper shipment temperature can result in textural degradation,
discoloring, bruising, and microbial growth.

Types of Cold Storages:

  • Warehouse Cold Storages
  • Walk-In Chillers & Freezers
  • Portable Skid Mounted Cold Rooms
  • Offshore Refrigerated Containers
  • Refrigerated Truck Bodies & Semi-Trailers

Quality is pivotal when it comes to perishables and this can only be guaranteed by experienced and
competent personnel who have a thorough understanding of the specific requirements of the Cold

Chain. With expertise in all aspects of perishable logistics, our team possesses vast experience in the industry enabling us to offer a personalised solution.

INSULATED PANELS

With advancements in construction materials, a modern solution for both residential and commercial construction projects are Insulated metal panels. Also known as insulated sandwich panels, insulated panels consist of an insulation layer between two structural steel skin layers. anels
are composite elements that can be used to build floors, walls, and roofs.

Insulated metal panels are known for their superior thermal performance, energy efficiency, and durability design flexibility and fast installation time as compared to traditional wood-framed panels.

The performance of Insulated metal panels or insulated sandwich panels varies depending on the
materials used for its core and its exterior layers. Most popular materials for the core are expanded
polystyrene (EPS), polyisocyanurate (PIR), polyurethane (PUR), mineral wool (MW). Different each
materials come with their own properties, advantages and disadvantages, PIR cores are generally
more resistant to water and fire than PUR, EPS, and are more durable than mineral wool or other
materials. The metal facings on either side of the core also come in a variety of options, the most
popular being prepainted galvanized iron, metal, aluminium.
TSSC’s insulated metal panels are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes to match different
project requirements and allow aesthetic integration of a multitude of profile types. Insulated metal
panels are weather-tight and provide a strong thermal and moisture barrier. The specially
engineered panel joints provide protection from wind, rain and moisture.
