    They would be considered medium temp applications. The ones I've seen run between 0F and +10F evaporator temps for the drop-in style and a bit higher if you're talking about a raised rail on a prep table.

    The ones I came accross run like a freezer.
    Usualy subway sandwich tables and also continental coolers with rail section are the ones I work on.But I can't remember the pressure range off the top of my head right now.

    The prep tables at Subway that I have worked on are manufactured by Duke. They are charged with 134a and run between 0-4psi on the low side.

    I recollected continental refrigeration rail section lpc settings ; 45 psi,25 diff.-404a. no fan in the rail.I heard they manufacture the new ones with fan so I don't know the settings for that..

    the bottom is most likely a cooler and the rail is a freezer
    1/4 c valve for the box and probably1/4 z for the rail
