Insulated Food & Drink Carriers
Insulated Food Carriers
Moving food and beverages is easy. But if you are running a restaurant or food-service establishment, you need to make sure that the food and beverages you are moving around is kept either hot or cold while in transit, while they finally arrive at their destination, and even some time after arrival. Thermal food carriers and insulated beverage carriers can help you achieve the relatively challenging task of keeping your food and beverages hot or cold while in transit.
A Closer Look at Thermal Food Carriers
An insulated food carrier works by keeping whatever food or beverage inside the carrier—regardless of its coldness or hotness—from being the same temperature as the outside air.
Basically an insulation barrier is formed in the insulated food carrier or insulated beverage carrier to prevent the outside air from transferring into the container and whatever food or beverage it is holding.
Restaurant or food-service owners, especially those that run catering businesses, will do well to invest in insulated food transport containers or thermal carriers for beverages. They work especially well during summer or winter months since summer and winter are two seasons where there is a drastic difference between the temperature inside the carriers and the temperature outside. The key to keeping beverages or food hot or cold inside an insulated or thermal carrier or container is keeping the heat or cold from transferring from one place to another, whether it be into or outside of the container or carrier.
So how does an insulated food carrier or an insulated beverage carrier work? It basically works by preventing the transfer of heat energy from one object to another. In other words, by reducing the amount of conduction, convection, or radiation effects (the same way metal transfers heat to water when it's on a stove). An insulated food carrier or insulated beverage carrier, therefore, should be made of less dense insulated material to prevent the transfer of heat and enable it to keep a beverage or type of food at a specific temperature for a longer period, whether hot or cold.
