    Cold Storage for vegetables?



    Hi again from Indonesia I actually have two questions:

    1. I'm gonna build a cold storage room for vegetables with the dimension of 5m x 10m x 3.5m, initial temperature would be around 26C and need to bring the temperature down to 10C.
    How much compressor power do I need?
    And what system shall I use? Because from previous experience, using evaporator will result in drying the vegetables.

    2. I have a 1000 liter of water with the temperature of 80C, would like to stabilise the temperature down to 40C, how do I calculate the compressor power?

    Thanks in advance! Any help would be appreciate it.

    Contact a reputable system designer.

    If you had dry vegetables then your system was not designed or working correctly.

    hi adam
    for the dimensions of this room you need
    1-12 kw evaporator
    2-10 kw compressor capacity
    for your previous experience you need a bigger evaporator
