    That would be a hydraulic door closer.  They are made by Kason.  There are 12 different types that all look similar and use the same internals. But different roller guides, spring tension and mounting dimentions, So without one or two of the following it is impossible to tell.

    1. Measurements
    2. door model
    3. A picture of it

    And once you know the style, you’ll alos need to know the offset if any.

    It’s like one of these;

    However, this is not a complete list, nor necessarily what you have.  Unfortunately Partstown does not give specs. Either a number off the closer or a picture would be best.  I don’t believe Victory has made walk ins in a long time.

    Victory is not residential.  Besides, walk in’s are all built the same and often one party makes the doors for several manufacturers. They are often custom made for each location.  And since cam lock panels have come about, many are built to the same dimensions.  I’ve accually changed a door unit on a fifties walk in freezer that originally had a Oak door.

    fixbear   FWIW in residential (Kenmore, Whirlpool, Electrolux, ETC.)  they call them door risers or cams.

    Weird how there is such a big difference in names between commercial and residential.

    I get that lol I was just saying the names differ SOOOOOOO much from one to the other. Just random thoughts.

    That’s because they aren’t a closer, but a hinge. Always on the bottom.  Sometimes both.  They are used on cheap ones when the better ones use springs unless they need to lift off a floor wiper.
