RTM has provided refrigeration designs from small retail freezers to large central ammonia systems. Our projects have included grocery stores, breweries, food processing plants, and cold storage distribution centers. RTM understands the role of refrigeration in maintaining product quality, meeting FDA or USDA requirements, and protecting workers through process safety management. We evaluate energy consumption, first costs, expandability, and user interface in selecting the right type of refrigerant and equipment for each project.

Each project will vary with complexity, redundancy, temperature and humidity requirements, and we treat each project as critical for quality control. We understand that refrigeration systems have to perform to prevent product loss, costly maintenance, or decrease in shelf life.
