Regular maintenance helps prolong the life of the refrigeration plant and uncover conditions that allow for planned repair or replacement, avoiding the impact that unplanned breakdowns can have on your business operations.
Matador Refrigeration has a very large, dynamic skilled and experienced service and maintenance department, which is headed up by our Service Manager and two Service Foreman who control 15 teams in the field (nationally) that operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
These teams currently make sure that over 70 retail and semi-industrial refrigeration systems are properly and regularly maintained, saving each of those clients serious sums of money in energy, breakdown times, product losses and money.
Our refrigeration maintenance clients include:

Refrigeration Maintenance Solutions
Some of the key areas you need to watch are:
Compressor Optimization - in any refrigeration system, the compressor is the largest consumer of electricity, using sometimes up to 70% of the energy from the entire system.
Understanding how long a refrigeration compressor unit needs to run to maintain the correct operating temperature in the 'fridge holding area is a skill, and each refrigeration plant will have a different

Refrigerant Management- strategic and regular refrigerant management is extremely important to maintain chiller efficiency.
During operation, fridges develop small leaks in their sealed refrigerant systems. In addition to system refrigerant losses, oil, acid and moisture seep into the system refrigerant, deteriorating system efficiency.
Once oil contaminates the refrigerant, system efficiency drops exponentially.
Oil contamination of 1 % (by weight) produces a reduction of 3% efficiency and contamination of 15% produces a reduction of 40 to 50% in efficiency.
This is one of the major factors affecting refrigeration systems that are not properly and regularly maintained, and in turn, this is a sizable cost of business operation in supermarkets and restaurants often overlooked and almost never calculated.
Other areas that need to be monitored:
• Ice and scale build-up
• Temperature settings
• Excess vibration
• Compressor bearings
