In a date manufacturing company, the production line had to be stopped to remove the frost formed on the coils of refrigerators and freezers. This de-frosting process was achieved through hot gas, resulting in long de-frosting time, negatively impacting the productivity.
Installing electric heaters to assist in the defrosting process shall reduce the defrosting time, as well as to assure complete removal of formed frost, therefore improving the effectiveness of the refrigerators and freezers resulting in reduction of electricity consumption.
