Mechanically Cooled Industrial Freezers

Our mechanically cooled industrial freezers are capable of achieving temperatures of -120°F (-85°C) and can repeatedly withstand extreme cold temperature processing applications. We incorporate special construction techniques in addition to welded structural steel framing and heavy duty welded stainless steel liners for structural integrity.

About Mechanically Cooled Industrial Freezers

Russells has incorporated special construction techniques in addition to welded structural steel framing and heavy duty welded stainless steel liners.


  • Cooling capacity is based on using mechanical cooling and forced air convection for rapid cooling.
  • Prechilled industrial freezers have sufficient cooling capacity to return the air temp to -120°F/-84°C in the stated times with the steel loads shown (load at +75°F/24°C).
  • Continuous Tig welded type 304 stainless steel liner is vapor tight. Standard freezer floors are capable of supporting 300 PSF (or higher) of uniform static load
  • Insulation is high density, non‐settling, and non hygroscopic
  • Pressure equalization vents
  • Freezer workspace drain plumbed to freezer exterior FPT coupling
  • Welded structural frame with removable access panels
  • Base of the freezer is designed for forklift handling, (in most cases)
  • Gas shock assisted lift for lid, with toggle latch on 15 and 25 cu. ft. models
  • Air/Hydraulic lift lid mechanism, with safety system on 45 and 60 cu. ft. models
  • Special neoprene gaskets
  • Heated mullion to eliminate frosting around the lid perimeter
  • Durable blue enamel finishes (custom colors available)
  • Electric heat to 350°F/176°C
  • Recorders and/or data loggers
  • Cycle timer with beacon
  • Load temperature monitor
  • Access ports
  • Running time meter
  • LN2 Assist
  • Air lifted lids on 15 and 25 cu. ft. models
  • Electric defrost
  • Compressed air conditioning unit
  • Main power disconnect switch, with tag‐out lock‐out option
