Grease Trapper Meets UL-1978 Standard

Accurex’s new Grease Trapper Pollution Control Unit removes grease, smoke and odors from kitchen exhaust and has been tested and listed to the UL-1978 standard for factory-built grease ducts. The Grease Trapper uses a three-stage mechanical filter arrangement to remove grease and smoke particles from the exhaust air at an economical first cost. For ease of maintenance, independent pressure switches signal when any of the three filter stages need replacing. Activated carbon panels remove odor molecules prior to discharging the air, reducing the impact of kitchen exhaust to the surrounding areas. Built in accordance with NFPA 96, the Grease Trapper has performance capacities up to 12,000 cfm and MERV filters to ensure a minimum overall particulate removal efficiency of 95%.

Irinox Tempers Chocolate Phases And Prices

Irinox developed cycles that will melt chocolate. Place the chocolate into the Irinox and program it to melt it at your desired temperature. Once melted, program it to hold at a different temperature. The Irinox can be programed to hold chocolate at room temperature and then start melting when you tell it to. Irinox will also allow you to temper molded chocolate so they can be quickly ready for another stage of production or for unmolding. The Irinox Shock Freezing cycle is excellent for preparing ahead for seasonal business fulgurations. This advanced preparation helps smooth out labor needs and also helps take advantage of ingredient price swings. Buy low, shock freeze, and use during the busy season.

Pentair Water System Provides Two Separate Streams

The new Pentair Everpure QC7I DIO CLM+/7SI Systems, available in 7CLM+ and XCLM+-sizes, feature two separate and independent flow paths in one manifold. With dual inlets and outlets, these systems serve foodservice operations with at least two water-using applications, each requiring a different water recipe. These systems were developed specifically for applications where high-capacity chloramines reduction and scale inhibition are priorities—with sufficient capacity for both fountain and ice applications without the risk of pressure drop on the fountain side. Additionally, the QC7I DIO CLM+/7SI Systems meet the Coca-Cola North America (CCNA) Base Filtration Water Treatment Unit Specification as tested by an independent third party, NSF International, making it ideal for both Coca-Cola Freestyle and legacy dispensing system applications.

Salvajor Collectors Also Separate Food Wastes

Salvajor Collector Systems are unique in output and simplicity. Rather than grinding food waste or collecting every scrap of garbage in a trash receptacle, Salvajor Collectors wash soluble food waste harmlessly through the sewer while holding fibrous and non-soluble food waste in the scrap basket. Salvajor Collectors recirculate water at a rate of 30 to 70 gpm, while consuming only 2 gpm, resulting in a savings of thousands of dollars in wasted water each year. Since the operator has both hands free to work, scrapping speed is often doubled or sometimes even tripled. All three models are safe for use with grease interceptors or septic systems. An economic alternative to larger, more costly food waste equipment, the Salvajor Collector system allows foodservice operators to significantly reduce the amount of food waste being hauled to landfills. Bulk waste is reduced up to 50% and weight by as much as 80%. Salvajor Collectors also help eliminate free liquids, making storage of food waste more sanitary.
