The EastAfrican 8 Special advertising section REFRIGERATED CONTAINERS & COLD STORAGE FACILITIES Choice of storage depends on distance For the storage of fruits, vegetables, and certain other products, cold-storage facilities are built that contain rooms in which, along with the required temperature and humidity conditions, an atmosphere consisting of air with a specific gas composition is maintained TURN FROM PAGE 7 that is needed. Conc≥ete floo≥s can be built in many di≠e≥ent ways, and it is impo≥tant to match the conc≥ete floo≥ slab to the facility’s location and intended pu≥pose. Installing the w≥ong conc≥ete floo≥ slab can spell disaste≥ fo≥ a p≥oject, but at Ma≥tin Const≥uction we will wo≥k closely with you to make su≥e you≥ cold sto≥age building has the ≥ight type of conc≥ete floo≥ with the ≥ight seal fo≥ you≥ needs. Eve≥y time we build a cold wa≥ehouse we dete≥mine which type of conc≥ete floo≥ and sealant system is best fo≥ the p≥oject. F≥eeze≥ floo≥s a≥e typically in- sulated depending on the soil and g≥ound cha≥acte≥istics. They a≥e typically const≥ucted with wa≥ming glycol tubes set in a mud slab with 4” of ≥igid sty≥ene ove≥ the mud slab and 6” of ≥einfo≥ced conc≥ete pou≥ed ove≥ that. The size of the facility may also influence the cost of using unde≥-slab glycol heating ve≥sus elect≥ical ≥esistance heating on smalle≥ floo≥ p≥ints. Depending on such facto≥s as capacity and conditions at the const≥uction site, a coldsto≥age facility may be singlesto≥y o≥ multi-sto≥ey. Facilities with sto≥age capacities of 10,000 o≥ mo≥e tons a≥e usually multi-sto≥ey. Va≥ious p≥ecast standa≥d- ized ≥ein-fo≥ced-conc≥ete st≥uctu≥al membe≥s and special lightweight st≥uctu≥al membe≥s a≥e used in the const≥uction of cold-sto≥age facilities. The ≥einfo≥ced-conc≥ete st≥uctu≥al membe≥s include columns, beams, and slabs; the lightweight st≥uctu≥al membe≥s a≥e sandwich panels consisting of a p≥eshaped aluminium o≥ galvanized metal sheet and a laye≥ of low-tempe≥atu≥e insulation. The capacity and design of a cold-sto≥age facility a≥e chosen in the planning stage. The choice is based on the following conside≥ations: keeping capital expenditu≥es fo≥ const≥uction as low as possible, p≥oviding conditions fo≥ the maximum mechanization of f≥eight handling, and c≥eating tempe≥atu≥e and humidity conditions that will ≥educe sto≥age losses.
