Delfield Refrigeration Equipment
All of the Delfield refrigeration equipment I've worked on has been well made, with high quality materials and components.
The cabinets are all solid, with good insulation.
The doors always fit well, and are equipped with standard, commonly available gaskets.
The hinges and door latches are tough, and last for years.
The shelves fit perfectly, and if I remember correctly, there are always extra clips left over after installation, so you'll have spares in case any are lost during cleaning and maintenance.
Delfield refrigeration components (compressor, evaporator, condenser, etc.), are all high quality, and last for years with proper maintenance.
My impression is that some items are OEM type, which means if you don't get a replacement directly from Delfield, or a Delfield distributor, you might have to do a little extra research to get an exact replacement.
The electrical components are also top quality, and you should be able to get 99% of any replacement parts you'll need off the shelf at your local parts wholesaler.
If you own Delfield refrigeration equipment and are retro-fitting from R-12 and R-502 to newer refrigerants, be sure to follow the refrigerant manufacturer's instructions, and contact Delfield for any guidance they might have.
We have retro-fitted a number of R-12 systems to R-409 after leak repairs.
It has worked fine, with only a slight difference in operating pressures and temperatures.
On older R-12 and R-502 units, as compressors fail we are changing over to R-134a and R-404a.
We use #4 capillary tube, and cut it as necessary until our pressures, temperatures, superheat and subcooling are in the normal range when the unit is at about 7° above set point.
If you're comparison shopping, and the best price and warranty you're being offered is for Delfield refrigeration equipment, go for it.
It's excellent equipment, and as long as you take care of it, it will run fine for years.
