When choosing commercial refrigerators, the common choices will be Air cooling and Direct cooling. But which refrigerator is suitable for you? Or do you know their advantages and disadvantages?

First: The difference between Air cooling and Direct cooling:

Air-cooling refrigerators use frost-free technology for refrigeration. The principle is to use an internal circulation fan to disperse cold air to all corners of the refrigerator which can make the temperature smooth. This design prevents the air-cooling refrigerator from generating frost, thus preventing food from frosting.

Direct cooling refrigerators cool down the temperature through the internal evaporator directly contacting the air in the refrigerator compartment. Therefore, direct cooling refrigerators require regular defrosting operations to ensure normal operation of the refrigerator.

Second: Advantages and disadvantages of air cooling and direct cooling:

Advantages of air-cooling refrigerators:

1. The internal temperature is more uniform and accurate than a direct cooling refrigerator, which is conducive to the preservation of food;

2. No frost will occur, no need for defrosting, and it is easier to maintain than a direct cooling refrigerator;

3. It can maintain the original taste and nutritional content of food better than direct cooling.

Disadvantages of Air-cooling refrigerators:

1. The price is relatively higher;

2. The power consumption is also larger and the power consumption is slightly higher.

Advantages of direct cooling refrigerators:

1. The price is relatively low and cost-effective compared to air-cooling refrigerators.

2. Low power consumption, energy saving, and environmental protection.

Disadvantages of direct cooling refrigerators:

1. It’s easy to form ice inside the refrigerator and the ice will be thicker over time.

2. Uneven internal temperature distribution can easily lead to the frosting of food.

3. Regular manual defrosting operations are required and maintenance is cumbersome.
