Abstract

See full text

A preferred embodiment of the reach-in cooler incorporates a roof structure which includes a ceiling and a roof that are spaced from each other to form an air distribution plenum. The air distribution plenum includes an air return inlet and an air distribution outlet, and communicates with air return passage via the air return inlet. Preferably, the air return passage is formed between the back of the cooler and a partition. The refrigerated space of the cooler is disposed below the roof structure and communicates with the air return passage. Additionally, a refrigeration unit, which includes a refrigeration coil and a fan, communicates with the air return passage so that the fan moves air from the refrigerated space, through said air return passage, through the air return inlet and into the air distribution plenum. The air then is directed through the refrigeration coils for delivery through the air distribution outlet and into the refrigerated space for cooling the refrigerated space. Preferably, the partition incorporates air return orifices so that the fan draws air from the refrigerated space through the air return orifices and into the air return passage. Back-to-back configurations and method aspects also are provided.
