What’s cold, holds a ton of ice (literally!), and will help optimize your delivery costs? Leer’s brand-new expanded lineup of High-Capacity Ice Merchandisers. These giants are the newest additions to our Ice Merchandiser line. In celebration of welcoming them to our “cool” family of iconic Ice Merchandisers, here’s three considerations before you buy your next box.

It will be the fourth one we’ve used as a business and we happy to add such a superior refrigerant to our current offerings.
Now meet HFOs, or Hydrofluoroolefins. With just 0.1% of the global-warming potential (GWP) of HFCs, a short atmospheric life, and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), HFOs are the way to go. They’re high performing and have little ecological impact.
Learn about the difference between Automatic Defrost and Cold Wall Manual Defrost refrigerated units. There are advantages and disadvantages to each and this blog will walk you through how to find which one is best for you.
While much of the United States is just beginning to make the transition to R290, it’s already been in use across Europe for over 20 years. In fact, R290 is in use in an estimated 2.5 million commercial units worldwide and in 2 billion household refrigerators and freezers...
