I'm wondering if anyone has knowledge of commercial refrigerator duty cycles/compressor health. I have a Beverage Air MT-10 which I've hacked with a custom PID controller for monitoring and controlling beer fermentation. I'm guessing the compressor and healthy duty cycles are different than home refrigerators, as commercial fridges are likely open and closed far more often (as in the checkout line at a grocery store).

Is anyone aware of recommended minimum cycle "on" times and "off" times? I did find the other question here for home refrigerators, but wanted to seek out something for commercial style as well.

At colder temperatures it's been running 50%-75% often for less than 10 minutes at a time. This is very easy for me to adjust with the software I use so any recommendations would be very helpful, thanks.
