From a time-saving work process, to an auto feature on an equipment piece that works by itself – innovative breakthroughs in the restaurant industry continue to simplify workloads, save money, and save time. This guide will provide specs for cutting edge equipment that will improve the way you and your staff works.
Turbo Air Refrigeration
Turbo Air made waves when they manufactured many lines of refrigeration with a self cleaning condenser. Though the concept was developed by Structural Concepts, Turbo Air adapted the idea and applied it to nearly their entire line of products and rolled it out at no price increase, making it standard even on entry level models. High volume restaurants create a lot of dust which can prevent the condenser from properly releasing heat which is what makes the self-cleaning condenser an attractive feature.
- Uses a rotating brush to catch dust 2-3 times a day during defrost cycles.
- Dramatically improves energy efficiency by lowering consumption cause by a dirty condenser.
- Increased life span
- Decreased power usage
- Minimize or avoid compressor failure and health inspection failure
- Avoid manufacturer warranty becoming void
Turbo Air customers can enjoy full warranty coverage for 3 years of standard warranty period, without worrying about cumbersome maintenance requirements on the condenser.
