A kitchen energy management expert is aiming to appeal to casual dining chains and companies supplying the casual dining market.
Berkshire-based Quintex claims it will be the only ‘energy-saving technology supplier’ exhibiting at the forthcoming Casual Dining Show, which takes place in London on February 26-27.
It will be heavily promoting its unique ‘Cheetah’ system, which uses demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) to offer operators measurable energy saving opportunities and results.
DCV incorporates sensor technology to detect cooking activity levels and reduce ventilation fan speeds, so that extract rates are matched to cooking demands.
The firm claims that Cheetah is proven to pay for itself in two years on average, while also being fully automated and requiring minimal maintenance.
Simon Jarman, chief executive of Quintex, said the Cheetah system is “completely unique” to the market place.
“We’re the only exhibitor [at Casual Dining] who offers an energy-saving solution, something which is becoming increasingly crucial as energy bills soar and operators look to minimise their environmental impact and costs,” he said.
The kit has already been sold into the likes of Mitchells & Butlers, Whitbread, Tesco, Claridge’s and Frankie & Benny’s.
