Cold storage construction using steel structure

A large building or room designed like refrigeration to store goods or products in a surrounding environment that is below the outdoor temperature is referred to as a cold or cool store. These kinds of cool or cold storage are used for storing degradable food items like fruit, vegetable, meat, and seafood as on.

Cold storage Classification:

The cold or cool storage is divided into large, medium, and small storage based on the room space or storage captivity.

  • When the room space has the capacity to store more than 10,000 tons of goods it is referred to as large-scale cold storage.
  • In medium-sized cold storage, the room size has the capacity to store 1000 to 10,000 tons.
  • Whereas small cold storage has the capacity to store products or goods below 1000 tons.

As various products need to be stored in different temperature specifications below mentioned are list.

  • The temperature for the high-temperature storage space is -2 to + 8 ℃.
  • When the temperature for the cold storage space is -10 and -23 its refer to as Medium-temperature storage space.
  • For the low-temperature cold storage, the temperature is maintained from 23 to 30 .
  • Quick-freezing or ultra-low cold storage has a temperature of -30 to 80℃.

Benefits of Cold Storage Building Using Steel:

  • The time taken for the construction of the cold storage using steel is a concise and quick construction process.
  • When cold storage is constructed using steel it can be used quickly leading the enhanced economical benefits.
  • Larger space can be utilized for prefabricated steel cold storage buildings and steel buildings can reach a height limit of up to 20 or 30 meters.
  • The rate of utilization is very high in steel cold storage buildings.
  • The flexibility in steel structure is that the size factor such as height and width can be adjusted.
  • Streel Structure cold storage has a very high turnover rate.
  • Cold storage structure with steel are more environmentally friendly and saves a lot of energy in terms of recycling and very low construction cost.
