Cold room calculator
Air cooler units can be found in most cooling and freezing rooms. Air cooler capacities should perfectly match with the specific conditions of each individual cold room. For that reason Alfa Laval supplies software to select the best air cooler model for the application. However, prior to air cooler selection a calculation must be made to determine the expected heat load for the cold room. That's what our Cold Room Calculator App is for!

Rules of thumb or accuracy?
For making cold room calculations refrigeration installers can rely on experience based and widely used ‘rules of thumb’ : 15-20 watt/m3 for a large frozen storage room, 60-70 watt/m3 for a fresh fruit cooling room, etc. Convenient, quick, but not very accurate.
A more accurate method is a detailed cold room calculation using refined calculation formulas in combination with product data tables. This can be done manually or using commercial cold room calculation software. This is relatively time consuming, a computer is required and in addition the software is not for free. And if for instance the room door remains open a little longer than planned, so much for calculation accuracy…
