    • include those installed on trailers, shipping containers, and trucks
    • exclude containers that house food and beverage products for transport
  • reach-in and walk-in refrigerators and freezers
  • beverage refrigeration equipment, including:
    • drinking fountains, which include those with integrated water bottle filling stations but exclude non-integrated and standalone water bottle filling stations (those are included in the value of all other commercial refrigeration equipment)
    • soda fountain equipment
    • beverage cooling and dispensing equipment, including pre-mix and post-mix dispensers
    • beer dispensing equipment
  • display cases, including normal temperature (which encompass multiple shelf cases with glass doors used to store beverage cans and bottles) and low temperature types available in open or closed configurations
  • ice machines, including those that make cubes, flakes, and nuggets and dedicated units and combination ice makers/dispensers
  • liquid chillers, including absorption, centrifugal, and reciprocating types
  • cryogenic equipment, including controlled rate freezers, liquid nitrogen coolers, and mechanical coolers
  • refrigerated vending machines
  • miscellaneous equipment, including non-integrated and standalone water bottle filling stations, compressor racks (or compressor systems), dairy coolers, egg refrigerators, and refrigerated food prep stations
  • associated parts and attachments

Markets included are:

  • food and beverage retail establishments, including convenience stores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets, as well as farmers’ markets, produce markets, and other specialty food shops
  • foodservice, or the service of food to paying or nonpaying customers by restaurants and bars, airlines, company cafeterias and canteens, daycare facilities, food trucks, government facilities and military sites, institutional establishments, lodging and hospitality establishments, and sports and recreation venues
  • food and beverage distribution, which encompasses:
    • farms and warehouses that store food that is awaiting shipment
    • transportation networks – which utilize shipping container, trailer, and truck refrigeration systems – that ship the goods to the end user
