Using Heat To Cool Better

An optional electronic controller for walk-in refrigeration systems, the Master Controller Reverse Cycle Defrost System flows high-temperature refrigerant back through the evaporator coil, heating it along its entire length to eliminate frost build-up. This results in more efficient cooling, lowering the risk of temperature fluctuations inside the walk-in caused by the constant opening and closing of walk-in doors. The innovative technology increases food safety, prevents product loss and significantly saves on energy. Web2Walk-In software loaded on each controller allows remote monitoring and programming of numerous setpoints.
