O3 Cleans An Operation's H2O
Franke’s EcO3Ice is an eco-friendly, “green” device that generates a small amount of activated oxygen (dissolved ozone: O3) using only water. It safely sanitizes the water lines, evaporators, dispensers, storage bins, scoops and more, which vastly reduces the risk of foodborne illness and other microorganisms associated with unsanitary ice making, storage and handling. The EcO3Ice easily attaches to the water supply line of new or existing machines without causing any damage and a cleaner clean extends the time between scheduled maintenance, saving time and money. And because it destroys compounds that cause odor and affect the taste of water and ice, Franke’s EcO3Ice can provide for better, more-consistent-tasting beverages.
Sterilization As Powerful As The Sun
The Edlund Co.'s Helios KSUV-18 Knife Sterilizer Cabinet utilizes ultraviolet light to provide superior sterilization compared to other knife sanitizing methods. The exclusive non-filtering clear slotted knife holder and special mirrored interior walls eliminate shadows on knife surfaces that could prevent complete sterilization. Independent laboratory testing indicated a 99% reduction in E. coli bacteria in as little as 3 min. The wall-mounted stainless cabinet has a UV-filtered Plexiglas door that protects operators from UV rays while allowing full view of knives inside. It holds up to 12 knives, or 10 knives and 2 cleavers plus 1 steel, and has a lockable keyed handle for security. An easy-to-use 15-min. belled timer and LED lights indicate when the door is closed and sterilization is in process.
Savings As Simple As 1-2-3 With 1814
Frymaster 1814 Fryers (gas and electric) offer a trio of savings: oil, energy, and space. The 1814 gas fryers have a Thermo-Tube heat transfer system which uses 6-in. vs. 4-in. tubes to provide superior heat-to-oil transfer and use more than 50% less energy than standard large-capacity fryers. The 1814 electric fryers have flat-bar, low-watt-density, ribbon-type, self-standing elements that transfer 89% of the heat into the oil. When compared to traditionally sized high-production electric fryers, the energy savings is 30%. All 1814 models with SMART4U Lane controllers exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines qualifying for energy saving rebates. Two 1814s replace the capacity of three standard 50-lb. fryers. That’s up to 15% less space. Add that to less oil and less energy, and the savings quickly multiply.

Incorporating Alto-Shaam’s Halo Heat technology and EcoSmart design, these units extend food quality and shelf life while providing operational cost savings. Halo Heat gently surrounds the food well providing consistent and gentle radiant heat from the recessed surface. The adjustable thermostat provides holding temperature flexibility based on the product being held. The round well can be dropped into any stationary or mobile counter or prep area. No water means no plumbing, so the cost of installation and ongoing operation is greatly reduced. Good for the food, good for the environment, and great for the bottom line…Sustainability redefined!
Modular Chillers & Freezers Fit Your Needs and Your Space
American Panel’s modular series of blast chillers and shock freezers make site restrictions a thing of the past. These units are assembled in the field, the same way a typical walk-in is erected. No more wondering how you’re going to get that large piece of equipment through the door. The new modular series also features a one-piece evaporator assembly. This places all of the components within the cabinet on one side, which greatly reduces the overall footprint of the unit. American Panel quality and precision in a flexible format to fit your needs.

Flat Is Where It’s At In Sheet Pan
Engineered and manufactured to counteract flaring and bowing, the StayFlat sheet pan’s sides are continuously reinforced with a horizontal engineered rib, which increases the wall strength by up to 30%. In addition, a new manufacturing method is used to impart a residual tensile stress in the aluminum that significantly increase the pan's strength and overall resistance to bowing. The StayFlat Sheet Pan is designed to fit most commercial rack ovens, is available with and without perforated bottoms and can be purchased plain or coated with AMERICOAT Plus Silicone Glaze.
Adaptable, Portable, Preppable
Eagle’s New Mobile Prep Table makes food prep run smoother and is great for small space kitchens. One of the three cutting boards provided can be affixed onto the unit’s raised surface, surrounded by slanted surfaces for ease of drainage. Cutting boards store within easy reach, and a knife rack is attached at the right. The rear trough accommodates two half-size stainless perforated pans. When paired with a wall-mountable ozone unit, this table can be quickly sanitized, greatly reducing labor for cleaning. Drainage goes to the recessed rear trough and into a removable 22-gal. waste tank on the stainless undershelf.
Universal Fryer Guard is a Fire Guard
The FMP Universal Fryer Splash Guard is a great way to add protection to your fryer and your kitchen. According to the National Fire Prevention Association’s code 96, deep fryers must be located 16 in. from an open-flame cooking source to prevent grease fires. If that is not possible, an 8-in. protective barrier can be utilized. The FMP Splash Guard is universal and works on the right or left side of most fryers. Other brand splash guards require drilling the fryer and bolting the guard on. The FMP Splash Guard’s built in clamps allow it to simply slide on and off, making it not only easier to install, but easier to clean. The Splash Guard measures 20 1/2-in. long by 17 3/4-in. wide and is constructed of 18-gauge stainless steel.

Emerson's InSinkErator Business Celebrates 75th Year
Disposer technology has diverted more than 77.3 billion lb. of food scraps from landfills to wastewater treatment plants, which transforms the waste into usable biogas. InSinkErator, an Emerson business and a manufacturer of food waste disposers and instant hot water dispensers for home and commercial use, celebrated its 75th anniversary by hosting an event at its headquarters in Racine, Wis., where the company produced its 150 millionth disposer. Today, InSinkErator disposers are playing an increasingly important environmental role in managing food waste, and are gaining popularity on a global scale. Looking ahead, the company is exploring ways to partner with commercial institutions that manage large quantities of food waste, such as sports arenas, grocery stores, hotels and academic institutions, in hopes of increasing the conversion of food waste through anaerobic digestion at wastewater facilities.
Endless Cold Control For Endless Merchandisers
Master-Bilt introduces the Super Controller option for endless glass door merchandisers with remote refrigeration systems, walk-in coolers and freezers for additional energy efficiency. The Super Controller’s ability to float the head pressure of the condensing unit results in impressive energy savings. Simply stated, floating the pressure allows a condensing unit to use cold air to reduce compressor energy usage. The Super Controller’s electric expansion valve, installed in an evaporator coil, is more accurate than mechanical valves and responds to evaporator superheat for precisely regulated refrigerant flow. Efficient flow ensures optimum system performance and lower energy use. The controller is factory pre-set and does not require additional resetting, which saves costs on installation and service.
Produce Soak Produces Sanitizing Soak For Produce
The Produce Soak by Power Soak, a division of Unified Brands, can provide you with an efficient and thorough power-assisted washing and sanitizing for all produce items in the kitchen. Free-flowing water removes soils and bacteria from hard to reach areas, while individually divided washing bays allow you to wash a variety of fruits and vegetables at the same time. Each section includes three high-volume “gentle wash” jets that will not bruise even your most tender produce such as berries. Easy-to-use self-loading baskets make removal of produce a simple, efficient and ergonomic task. When used with a proper antimicrobial fruit and vegetable wash product, you can achieve even greater safety levels and longer shelf life by reducing pathogen levels.
