Many people look at frost in a walk-in as a good thing. It means it’s properly cooling, right? Wrong. Frost in a walk-in can have detrimental effects on your commercial kitchen. 

With the Eco-Smart refrigeration controller, you can rid your walk-in freezer of all the problems related to frost.

What is Eco-Smart?

The Eco-Smart is an energy saving refrigeration controller that provides remote diagnostics and monitoring, as well as on-demand defrost.

How can Eco-Smart get rid of frost in a walk-in?

With the Eco-Smart’s on-demand defrost feature, you can remove frost from your walk-in freezer for good. To control when the on-demand frost feature is turned on, the Eco-Smart controller monitors the evaporator coils. When frost is detected, a defrost cycle will clear the coils, protecting your food, walls, and floors keeping them free of ice.

How is Eco-Smart different from a traditional defrost system?

Many traditional defrost systems will use a timer to determine when to turn on the defrost system. The problem with this is that frost doesn’t show up on a set schedule so a timer may be turning on the defrost system too early or too late. The Eco-Smart controller ensures that the evaporator coil will defrost only when it needs to.

Because the Eco-Smart controller only defrosts the coil when needed, it will improve your bottom line significantly by getting rid of frost in your freezer without overusing energy.
