Maintaining food temperatures below critical values is the key to maximising the high quality display life of chilled foods. Studies were carried out to see if computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling could be used to rapidly identify the changes that would be required to an existing multi-deck display cabinet so that it would meet a higher test specification. Implementing the changes on a Pastorfrigor MV 200TP display cabinet reduced the average power consumption from 1.37 to 1.29 kW as well as significantly reducing the number of test packs which spent any time above 4 °C, from 12 to 1. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd and IIR.
