How much will the filters lower freezer temperatures by?
Normally we see 2 to 5 degrees °F drop in reach-ins and walk-in coolers.
While freezers can drop between 5 to 15-degree °F depending on the set-point on the thermostat.
Note, drier air is easier to cool than heavy damp moisture laden air.

If my food products move so quickly — do I need to be concerned with freshness and safety?
Have you ever tasted a salad that doesn’t smell fresh, but smells like a cooler and has that lingering cooler taste?
We prevent cross contamination and odor transfers. Cross-contamination travels on the water vapor molecule. We reduce excess water vapor to take freshness to a whole new level.
Ethylene Gas and Acetic Acids build up in coolers—our food grade filters stop a variety of harmful gases so products taste fresh and last longer.
