Industrial Refrigeration

No matter what you are storing, Polar prides ourselves on engineering reliable, cost-effective, and energy efficient refrigeration systems.

Food Processing

Whether it is fish or fruit, or perhaps even berries or baked goods, Polar enjoys minimizing defrost time and maximizing production time.

Polar’s engineers have specialized in CO2 refrigeration systems and enjoy offering either low-charge glycol or liquid overfeed cascade solutions.

Industrial refrigeration systems are very complex, and no single system is optimal for all applications. Each refrigeration system we design is tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients.

 We have extensive experience designing both ammonia and CO2 refrigeration systems. Using this experience, our engineering team has designed systems for cold storage, food processing, and scientific research facilities, ranging in capacity from 10 tons to over 1000 tons.


At Polar, we recognize that refrigeration system downtime can lead to profit loss and reduced customer satisfaction. For this reason, each system we design is reliability focussed, allowing you to minimize system downtime and maximize profits.

Cold Storage

Inadequate cold storage solutions can damage products, lead to safety concerns, and even damage the reputation of your company. With Polar, no matter your facility’s HVAC and refrigeration requirements, you can be assured that your product will be preserved, both energy and cost efficiently.

Food Processing

Each food processing facility has unique temperature, humidity, airflow, and sterility demands. Whether you are processing meat, wine, dairy, or anything in between, we can design a refrigeration system to keep your product preserved, allowing you to sell more and waste less.

CO2 Systems

If you are planning to build a refrigeration system in a cold climate, CO2 may be the right choice for you. Because of CO2’s impressive thermophysical properties, a cold climate allows for very low condensing pressures in the winter, leading to increased energy efficiency and system performance. 

CO2 is also non-flammable and non-toxic, making it a great choice for safety-focussed applications. With experience designing CO2 refrigeration systems for clients across the globe, Polar has the knowledge required to design a CO2 system to meet your facility’s needs
