What Size Refrigerated Prep Table Do I Need?

Posted: Nov 06, 2007

Applications: Refrigerated prep tables have compartments to keep sandwich, pizza and/or salad toppings fresh for operator preparation.

Types: Commonly used to keep ingredients chilled and close at hand to prepare pizzas, sandwiches and salads.

Capacity: Prep Coolers are commonly measured in widths and the number of standard 1/6-size 4” deep pans.
27” unit = 6-8 pans
36” unit = 9 pans
48” unit = 12-18 pans
60” unit = 24 pans
72” unit = 18-30 pans
96” unit = 36 pans

Most manufacturers produce units that accommodate 6” and 8” deep pans. Optional pans size is also 1/3.

Features: Below the workstation, units have storage cabinets with insulated doors and/or pull out shelves. Full-length removable cutting boards add greater flexibility for food preparation.

Latest Technology / Features: Unique air flow distribution allows pans to maintain 33° to 41° F to be in compliance with and certified under the new '98 NSF Standard for preparation units. To preserve fresh food longer, Coldtech units have an innovative "Cold Air Compartment" to maintain an equal temperature for every pan.

Energy Source: To ensure widespread compatibility with most foodservice situations, the majority of units run on single phase 115 volts.

Temperature Range: Designed to maintain 33°F to 41°F product temperature in pans. Adjustable temperature controls provide the flexibility to chill a variety of products.

Construction: Stainless steel exterior and interior, or aluminum inner pan. Cabinets have foamed-in-place doors insulated with an average thickness of 2” closed cell polyurethane, and heavy-duty adjustable shelves per section.

Maintenance: All prep coolers should be cleaned and sanitized, inside and out, particularly those used to prepare raw meat, chicken and seafood. Wire shelves can be cleaned in any warewashing appliance. Units on casters add mobility to ease thorough cleaning.

Certifications: Units can be NSF listed under standard No.7, and UL Safety and UL Sanitation listed.

Manufacturers: ACityDiscount offers a variety of specialty coolers, from some of the leading manufacturers, including Turbo Air, True, To-Rey, and Beverage-Air.
