Maybe a slight semantic problem, IMEX Cold Stores are not Freezers ?

 

Either way, difficult to see how you can melt ice at -10degC without creating a skating rink.

IMEX "freezers" (-30degC) are shut down when convenient, eg at weekends and then cleaned.

Cold Stores (-18degC) are rarely shut down so mainly get floor brushing.


Kind Regards,

Frozen product stored at -10degC ? Unusual.

@Charles. C - I Don't think I ever said anything about degrees in Celsius. 

 

we don't use Celsius as a way to take temperatures in the U.S., which is where we are located. 

 

 

Glenn was able to assist with what we were looking for  :smile:

Any reputable chemical supplier will have a specific chemical for this; typically alcohol based.

And for reference…in the US most “cold storage” facilities are not freezers….when someone says cold storage it’s refrigerated and yeah, a lot of them have freezer space too, but semantically that’s not the norm.

Hi Ryan,

 

[Nitpicking] - And do a lot of the US Cold Storages  also run at -10degC ? Never met this Standard before. :smile:

 

(or, come to think of it, even if Fahrenheit [-23.3degC], Réaumur I am less certain.)

 

Things may be different in US but TBH I have never encountered people pouring liquids on "freezer" or Cold Storage floors while running. However I have discovered that the type of rubber used for boots can be critical with regard to free skating.
