Common Questions About Turbo Air Refrigeration
Where should my refrigeration system be mounted in my Turbo Air refrigerator?
Turbo Air reach-in units are available with top- or bottom-mounted refrigeration systems. Each system has advantages and disadvantages, so it is typically best to decide based on application.
Bottom-mount systems operate near the floor, where the ambient air is cooler and ladders are not needed to access the unit for maintenance or servicing. Having the system in the bottom of the reach-in elevates the unit's interior to a comfortable level, so users don't have to stoop to reach stored items. Refrigeration systems that operate near the floor are also more likely to suck in dirt, debris, and ingredients like flour.
Top-mount systems are located away from the floor to avoid dust and debris. It is common for bottom-mounted systems to have an insulation layer above the refrigeration system, so top-mounted systems offer more cabinet space. These top-mounted systems can be hard to access for cleaning and maintenance, so it may be more expensive when service work is needed.
Do Turbo Air refrigerators have a digital control system?
Turbo Air refrigerators have digital control and monitoring systems with a variety of features that keep units functioning properly and maintain a constant temperature. Digital displays enable you to check the interior temperature. An alarm sounds to alert the operator if a door is left open on a Turbo Air cooler, reducing food spoilage risks.
Digital systems have early warning programs that monitor the cabinet, check for issues, and send alerts when there is a problem. If the Turbo Air refrigerator requires maintenance, the self-diagnosing system determines the source of the issue to save service time and costs.
What special features are available in Turbo Air refrigeration?
Condenser coils are one of the most important components in a refrigeration system. These parts move heat from inside the cabinet to the outside, though they are prone to capturing dirt and dust. Dust that has accumulated on the condenser coil will block airflow and cause system issues, so it is essential to clean the coils regularly. The self-cleaning condenser in each Turbo Air cooler uses a rotating brush to clear dust away multiple times a day, reducing energy consumption, maintenance needs, and labor costs.
The energy-saving fan controller in some Turbo Air refrigerators stops the fan motor when a temperature increase is detected, while units without this feature have fans that run nonstop to circulate cold air, producing a large amount of heat that can cause an increase in cabinet temperature. The controller uses an algorithm to stop the fan when needed, lowering energy costs and increasing the compressor's lifespan.
Some Turbo Air refrigerators have a turbo cooling function to rapidly cool the cabinet. Designed to cool newly stocked product, this feature enables the compressor to run continuously for as long as 2 hours.
