Precision drives up refrigerator energy efficiency ratings

The HSS 150 1 door undercounter is Precision’s first A+ rated refrigerator.

Precision Refrigeration has gained its first A+ efficient fridge in addition to the several A energy-rated models already in its commercial refrigeration range.

This rating is part of the continual improvement programme its engineering department is undertaking on its range of commercial refrigerators.

With some engineering enhancements, the team boosted the HSS 150 1 door undercounter refrigerator from an A to an A+ rating.

Other energy ratings improvements include the HWU 111 1 door wall counter which is now B rated, from a C, and the HWU 211 2 door wall counter which is now C rated, from a D.

The improvements to energy ratings are across the Precision range, and the team will continue this work in the forthcoming months.

In addition, all official energy tests conducted by Precision are to Climate Class 4 conditions, but where appropriate the team also tests those refrigerators to a Climate Class 5 environment, confirming their ability to operate in heavy duty conditions (40C/40% relative humidity). Precision stated that it wanted to ensure it put its refrigerators through the hardest relevant tests possible to ensure they will stand the toughest of commercial catering environments.

Carl Rudd, engineering manager for Precision, commented: “We have invested a lot of time and money in recent years into our factory, testing facilities, and generally improving the way we do things.

“This latest news shows our commitment to not only compete, but in time lead the field in commercial refrigeration to offer reliable refrigeration technology at great value to our customers.”
