Abstract

The practice of refrigerated storage design and fabrication has been subjected to many subtle changes over the time due to concerns on energy and environment, improvements of thermal and fire properties of insulation material, advancements in fabrication technology, energy efficient space planning and issues of personal/property safet1,. This paper highlights certain key aspects of planning and design of cold storages Where changes with respect to properties/construction of insulation panels, refrigeration system selection, ail tightness, in-use energy efficiency and environment considerations etc. have exerted considerable influences on the overall practice of cold room design installation and operation.
