Precision has upgraded its narrow profile 520 counters to take advantage of the latest technologies to offer the best refrigeration possible in the littlest space.
These all stainless steel refrigerated counters are said to be durable and more energy efficient. A front breathing and venting refrigeration system should mean they can fit into tight gaps without requiring additional space for ventilation. There is a built in air duct for even temperature distribution throughout the cabinet. Built for ease of use, the GN 2/3 shelving system has anti-tilt slides and doors are self-closing.
Operational efficiency is said to be paramount in the upgraded design. The latest R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant is used and 60mm thick zero ODP injected polyurethane insulation should ensure the cabinet holds its temperature efficiently. There is a condensing unit safety system to protect the compressor from blocked condensers and hi/lo visual temperature alarms. An electronic controller with an LCD screen shows the status of the unit. A waste heat recovery condensate vaporiser system may further add to overall energy efficiency.
Precision’s iCool controller is claimed to minimise energy consumption and optimise performance, designed to automatically adapt to working conditions to operate in the most efficient manner. For example, where possible it will utilise the residual ‘cold’ within the evaporator, through fan-only operations, before looking to bring in the compressor. An extended ‘saw-tooth’ run pattern decreases the number of compressor starts, reducing power consumption and hence energy costs.
Made in the UK, the 520 range is available in both fridge and freezer models. Fridges come in two, three or four door versions, with drawers fitted if requested, and freezers in two and three door versions. Fridges have a temperature range between -2 to +10°C and freezers from -18 to -22°C. All models feature heavy-duty, braked castors for easy positioning.
Revit files for the 520 models are available in the download area of the Precision website, on CESABIM and Specifi.
List prices for the 520 range start at £2,805 for the two door fridge and £3,175 for the two door freezer.
