A split, worn or broken fridge seal has a significant impact on the cooling capacity and energy consumption of the unit, not to mention compromising hygiene and food safety, says Edward Palin, commercial director at Filta Group.
Without a proper seal, a fridge or freezer will ‘leak’ cold air, which causes the cooling compressor to run more frequently or even continuously in order to keep the cabinet content at the set temperature.
But with support from Filta, operators can both extend the lifetime of their commercial fridge seals and replace seals more effectively if needed.
