Rytec Turbo-Seal insulated door
February 3, 2010
With a peak speed of 182" per second, Rytec Corporation, says it offers the fastest insulated roll door available for refrigerated and frozen food warehouses. Rytec's new Turbo-Seal® Insulated door maintains critical temperatures by combining the highest average opening speed with the lowest total cost of operation-all without a heated defrost system.
Faster in, faster out
As competition in the cold storage and distribution industry increases, so does the need for speed. Customers expect food and beverages to get there faster and at a lower price. As a result, the speed of warehouse doors is directly connected to the efficiency of material handling traffic. With a peak speed of 182" per second, the new Rytec door takes speed to a new level. The record speed increases the productivity of traffic because forklifts and pallet jacks don't waste time waiting for doors to open.
Maintain quality, safety
In addition to the flow of traffic, temperature and humidity are critical in the cold storage industry. Quality suffers if temperatures fluctuate or if ice forms on the product. Frost and ice can also create a safety hazard due to slippery floors. As a result, productivity is often hindered, especially when moving material. Compounding the issue, refrigeration systems must work overtime to compensate for the infiltration of air and the heat from conventional defrost systems.
Lower energy, higher performance
The development of an energy efficient cold storage door has eluded engineers for decades. By reducing energy costs over 90 percent, Rytec says the Turbo-Seal Insulated door "reshapes the performance expectations of the entire cold storage industry."
Exceptional thermal performance combined with unrivaled sealing technology enable the Turbo-Seal Insulated door to operate virtually frost-free without heating elements. Rytec's exclusive one-inch thick, closed-cell foam, Rilon Thermal panel is non-porous and moisture-proof. With higher R-values than conventional flexible doors, the thermal resistance provided by the closed-cell foam is balanced with the durability and long-lasting performance of the Rilon core.
Quad Seals™ in the side columns and integrated thermal breaks in the doorframe substantially reduce air infiltration and heat conduction. Because it performs day in, day out without a heated defrost system, it saves thousands of dollars in operational costs annually compared to doors with conventional heated defrost systems.
The Turbo-Seal Insulated door's other special features include the advanced System 3® door controller, Ry-Wi™ wireless technology, a new and innovative threshold safety light system and a fully-automatic self-repairing system. In the rare case a door is hit by a forklift, the self-repair system automatically restores and resets the door in just seconds without any human intervention.
For an industry with increasingly tight margins, the new Turbo-Seal Insulated door from Rytec provides the lowest cost of operation with one of the highest returns on investment. -- Rytec Corporation
