Conversion Of Cold Storage Tonnage And Area

Conversion Of Cold Storage Tonnage And Area

Basic formula:

Cold storage tonnage = internal volume of refrigerated room * volume utilization factor * unit weight of food

Volume utilization factor:

500-1000 cubic meters: 0.4 1000-2000 cubic meters: 0.5

2000-10000 cubic meters: 0.55 10000-15000 cubic meters: 0.6

Food unit weight:

Frozen meat: 0.40 tons / cubic Frozen fish: 0.47 tons / cubic

Fresh fruits and vegetables: 0.23 tons / cubic Mechanism ice: 0.25 tons / cubic

 

Take the example of storing 50 tons of frozen meat, and actually practice it:

Content product = cold storage tonnage / volume utilization factor / food unit weight

       =50/0.4/0.42

       =298 cubic meters

If the cold storage height is 3.5 meters, the area = 298 cubic meters / 3.5 meters = 85 square meters

If the cold storage height is 4.5 meters, the area = 298 cubic meters / 4.5 meters = 66 square meters

In summary, as long as we know the type and tonnage of the items stored, we can roughly calculate the area of the cold storage.
