“We’ve focused R&D across our full range on what we call ‘refrigeration for the real world,’” said Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director at Williams.

“That means developing products that are not only energy efficient, but also answer the precise needs of today’s foodservice operator.

“The Onyx CPC2 is a case in point – it uses less energy, it’s reliable, tough, good looking, easy to live and work with, and it’s perfect for the ‘squeezed’ kitchen.”

The Onyx CPC2 comprises a two-door, 355litre storage counter with four GN 1/1 shelves.

The top mounted wells can hold up to four 1/3 Gastronorm pans. The new unit measures 955mm wide.
The internal airflow plus the air curtain circulate cold air around the ingredients pan, ensuring temperature control. The air is then drawn back into the refrigeration system, where it is recycled to save energy.

Practical features include self-closing doors, a night cover for ingredients wells, and barrel locks for security.

Removable racking and shelving and a removable crumb tray should make the Onyx easy to clean. Its high refrigeration system means it is designed to operate safely in ambients as high as 43°C.

The Onyx CPC2 prep station is available now through Williams’ network of distributors and has a list price of £4,300.
