DIVISION 10Commercial Refrigeration

Interpretation

Marginal note:Definition of Edaily

 In this Division, Edaily means the daily energy consumption of a product, expressed in kilowatt hours per day.

SUBDIVISION ACommercial Refrigerators, Refrigerator-Freezers and Freezers

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

AV

AV means, in respect of a commercial refrigerator-freezer, its adjusted volume in litres, which is the sum of the refrigerator volume and 1.63 times the freezer volume. (VC)

closed

closed means

  • (a) in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all its points of access can be closed off from the outside by a physical barrier and from which any refrigerated item can be accessed by opening a door or drawer; and

  • (b) in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all of its compartments are as described in paragraph (a). (type fermé)

commercial freezer

commercial freezer means a self-contained freezer, other than a household freezer or walk-in commercial freezer, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and whose compartments are all designed for the freezing and display or storage of food, beverages or ice. (congélateur commercial)

commercial refrigerator

commercial refrigerator means a self-contained refrigerator that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and whose compartments are all designed for the display or storage of food, beverages or flowers at temperatures at or above 0°C. It does not include a household refrigerator, refrigerated buffet table, refrigerated preparation table or walk-in commercial refrigerator. (réfrigérateur commercial)

commercial refrigerator-freezer

commercial refrigerator-freezer means a self-contained refrigerator-freezer that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and that has two or more compartments, at least one of which is designed for the display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures at or above 0°C and at least one of which is designed for the freezing and display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures below 0°C. It does not include a household refrigerator-freezer or walk-in commercial refrigerator-freezer. (réfrigérateur-congélateur commercial)

CSA C657

CSA C657 means the CSA standard CSA C657-2015 entitled Energy Performance Standard for Commercial Refrigeration Equipment. (CSA C657)

open

open means, in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer — or a refrigerated compartment of one — that it is not closed. (type ouvert)

pull-down temperature reduction capability

pull-down temperature reduction capability means the capability of a commercial refrigerator, when it is situated in an area that has an ambient temperature of 32.22˚C and when it is fully loaded with 355 mL beverage cans that are at a temperature of 32.22˚C at the time of loading, to cool those cans to an average stable temperature of 3.33˚C in 12 hours or less. (capacité d’abaisser la température)

TDA

TDA means the total display area of a product, expressed in square metres. (TDA)

transparent

transparent means

  • (a) in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that it is closed and has a TDA that is at least 75% of the geometrically projected area of the refrigerated space on the plane of the face with the largest access space; and

  • (b) in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all of its compartments are as described in paragraph (a). (transparent)

V

V means, in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, its volume, expressed in litres, calculated in accordance with clause 8 of CSA C657. (V)

Commercial Refrigerators

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A commercial refrigerator is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, a commercial refrigerator is not considered to be an energy-using product

    • (a) for the purposes of sections 4 and 5, unless it is manufactured on or after April 1, 2007; and

    • (b) for the purpose of section 638, unless

      • (i) it is closed and was manufactured on or after April 1, 2007 and before January 1, 2012, or

      • (ii) it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2012.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to commercial refrigerators described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A commercial refrigerator complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C657, Test Procedure A, that are applicable to a commercial refrigerator as defined in section 636.
