We all have seen these tables lying around in every pizza store, subway chain, or bakery store. Refrigerated prep/chef tables or worktops come in all different types shapes, dimensions, capacities, and different configurations. Majority of the time they all work the same way. Whether it’s a cooler/freezer they run the same refrigeration cycle around in a loop. The key difference is the top side. Sometimes for the top, it uses the static pan chillers which are still running the same way but use glycol instead of the refrigerant. Glycol is an excellent substance because glycol can absorb unwanted heat without changing its temperature. Also in bigger refrigeration chillers, we will find a lot of systems carry glycol too. Glycol is a colourless, odourless liquid. Now days, a lot of newer worktops run on glycol systems. The majority of the time the top part is cooled with the help of the refrigeration cycle underneath but sometimes the pipes are also run just for the top part too which essentially runs separately from the bottom. Just in case one goes out the other part will still be running. The newer ones are way more efficient and save a lot of energy. Unlike all other fridges/freezers, they go bad from time to time and need to be properly taken care of.
