Exact placement of the reach-in refrigerators within the Force Provider Electric Kitchen and the MWR
TEMPER will be determined by the requirements of the unit, kitchen and MWR TEMPER layout, and the
preference of the mess and MWR personnel.
The final location of the reach-in refrigerators must be able to provide a large quantity of cool, clean air.
The refrigeration system operates most efficiently and trouble-free with cool, dry air circulation. Avoid
locations near heat and moisture generating equipment such as stoves, ovens, cooking ranges, fryers,
dish washers, steam kettles, etc. Also, do not select a location in an unheated room or area where
temperatures may drop below 550 F. Air supply to the condensing unit is equally important. Restricting the
air supply will place an excessive heat load on the condensing unit and adversely effect its operating
To assure sufficient air supply and circulation to the condensing unit, a minimum clearance of 12-inches
above the grill (1) and 3-inches on each side and back of the cabinet (2) must be provided. If necessary,
special venting or air supply ducts must be installed by the installer for this purpose. Do not at any time
obstruct the grill area in front of the cabinet in any way, and never place or store anything on top of the
cabinet machine compartment.
All three reach-in refrigerators run on 115VAC single-phase 15A power. Ensure an independently
protected 115VAC single-phase 15A receptacle is provided at the operating location.
