Zero Zone was founded in 1961 by George Johnson, Duke Wegner, and K Hirata. They had a dream of starting their own business, but didn’t have much money. What they did have was 50 years of refrigeration experience and the will to succeed. So with a pledge to “build the best freezers in the business at a competitive price”, they named their new company Zero Zone, and began operations in a rented dairy barn in Pewaukee, WI. With no payroll and no vacations, all three men built the cases themselves from the finest quality raw materials, then went out and sold them to local customers. The business began to grow, and so did their dreams.
Today Zero Zone's committment to innovation, quality and responsiveness have made them a leader in the refrigeration industry. The founders’ commitment to excellence has remained one of the core values of Zero Zone, and today, that sense of commitment is stronger than ever.
Parallel Rack Systems
Zero Zone Parallel Rack Systems are available with reciprocating, screw, or scroll compressors, giving retailers more options than ever. Our Parallel Rack Systems are outfitted with highly efficient compressors that run in parallel to match refrigeration, maximizing energy efficiency. The rack controller is the brains of your system and controls compressor, condenser, defrost, and other rack components to ensure system stability. The controller also monitors temperature to ensure product integrity.
Built to Last
One of the major advantages of a Zero Zone Parallel Rack System is its long-lasting durability. A solid steel frame is used to mount the rack components and the refrigeration piping that carries refrigerant to the display cases and walk-ins. The Zero Zone production approach minimizes pipe joints and leak potential. These robust measures are crucial when retailers are seeking a system that is easy to install and maintain, and that provides years of dependable operation.
Instead of taking up precious space for a refrigeration system or in a back room, retailers are able to install an enclosed parallel rack refrigeration system on a concrete pad or on the roof. Available with hinged or removable panels, contractors are safely protected from the weather and can conveniently access all interior components.
Customized for Your Needs
Whether your application requires a horizontal or vertical electric cabinet, stacked compressors, circuit or loop piping, heat reclaim, split condensers, or other unique system features, Zero Zone is here to provide a custom solution to fit your needs.
