Precision’s new upright cabinets get labelled

Precision claims some of the best energy ratings and running costs in the market for its new cabinets

Following the introduction of energy labelling for professional refrigeration, Precision redesigned its cabinets to conform to the European EcoDesign Energy Labelling Standard. The cabinets can now claim some of the best energy ratings and ultra low running costs on the market. For example, the MPT601 only uses 1.25kWh/24hr under EcoDesign test conditions, giving running costs of just £50.19 a year. (Based on energy price of £0.11/kW).

The new R290 Hydrocarbon Refrigeration System used in the cabinets offers the best in energy efficiency and environment protection, with a GWP of just 3 - compared to 1430 with R134a or 3922 with R404A. An even temperature is ensured internally throughout the cabinet, regardless of product loading, due to the internal rear-mounted airflow duct.

All Precision uprights are engineered to work in the toughest, busiest and hottest kitchen environments, up to 43°C. Their controls offer the flexibility to safely store meat, fish or general produce with internal temperatures of -2 to +4°C. They also have hot gas rather than off-cycle defrost, eliminating the risk of evaporator ice build-up, even in high ambient temperatures.

Designed for ease of use, the cabinets feature a fully splash-proof LCD display that makes it simple to adjust the temperature or turn off power. They are packed full of energy-saving features as well as the standard high / low audio-visual alarms and a RS485 port for optional connection (wifi or cable) to temperature monitoring / recording software for enhanced HACCP compliance.

Recognising that the single biggest maintenance issue for professional refrigeration is blocked condensers, all Precision uprights are fitted with a condenser probe which detects a blocked condenser and stops the compressor, so it doesn't overheat and damage the system. It also sounds an alarm to alert staff to the problem so it can be corrected quickly.

Further energy saving is achieved through an innovative new thermal break bridging the gap between the cold interior cabinet walls and the exterior shell. This new design eliminates the need for an electric heater, which is commonly used to avoid condensation around the door frame, thus saving energy and removing a component with the potential to fail.

The cabinets feature full stainless steel construction and are backed with Precision’s no-quibble two-year warranty and excellent customer service.

List prices start at £1,950 for the single door MPT601.
