Eliminate Ice With Refrigerant

Master-Bilt’s Master Controller Reverse Cycle Defrost system option increases food safety, prevents product loss and saves significantly on energy bills. Its Web2Walk-In software increases user connectivity with remote monitoring and programming of data and set points. Also, its patented design saves up to 27% more energy than an all-mechanical system. With the reverse cycle defrost feature, high-temperature refrigerant flows back through the evaporator coil, heating it along its entire length to eliminate frost build-up. The prevention of ice formation from blocking the cold airflow, 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.
