Can someone offer advice regarding grocery store refrigeration equipment. I have been asked to shoot a local grocery store and don’t know what to look for or what might be out of the ordinary when looking at refrigerant compressors and their associated plumbing. Are there other components, other than electrical panels, that I need to look for?

if you point to a refrigerated container then the subjet is humidity! it should be controlled, then you should look for leakage of cold.

Be sure to look at all refrigerated display cases. Open front cases use air curtains and when malfunctions with circulation fans and/or refrigeration circuits occur, imagers can spot it easily. Some use many rather narrow zones, so a single zone that is out may go unnoticed to store personnel.

One store chain in Texas determined that product stocking errors in all kinds of refrigerated cases could be easily spotted. For instance, Thanksgiving turkeys piled too high above the upper "load line" may thaw enough to cause food poisoning. A quick scan through the store can spot such stocking errors as well as equipment malfunctions and can help store management avoid product losses and lawsuits over food poisoning.

when looking at inclosed freezers/coolers, look at door seals problems & insulation problems. when looking at compressors and related piping, etc., anything on the high side (condensor side) of the compressor should be hotter than anything on the suction side (evaporator side) of the system. a refrigeration company should be able to steer you to a source for expected temperatures for the high & low sides of a system.
