Traulsen has introduced the latest in a series of new equipment features for its refrigerators and hot-holding cabinets. The EZ-Clean Gasket and Bare Tube Coil follow the launch of the EZ-Open Foot Pedal and EZ-Change Interiors earlier this year.
"Four new equipment features and our industry-leading three-year equipment warranty are all examples of innovations introduced in the past 12 months to help customers gain efficiencies in their operations," said John Davis, director of Engineering and Marketing for Traulsen.
Made of durable Santoprene rubber, the design of Traulsen's EZ-Clean Gasket helps support an operator's sanitation and food quality programs. Already factory-installed on R and A Series units (with G Series installs beginning within 30 days), Traulsen expects to add the EZ-Clean gaskets to the rest of its product lines by year's end. The EZ-Clean Gasket also can be added to all current production models of Traulsen cabinets.
The EZ-Clean Gasket is molded into a new profile with rounded bellows making dirt build-up more visible and accessible compared to rubber gaskets that have tight folds and hard-to-reach crevices. The Santoprene rubber material can be cleaned with sanitizer and a washcloth, to reduce the risk of cuts and punctures that can compromise a traditional gasket's effectiveness.
Also, according to the company, the Bare Tube Coil helps extend the life of the compressor on R- and A-Series reach-ins by facilitating ample airflow passage into the condenser.
The finless design of the Bare Tube Coil has less surface area for dirt and dust accumulation. The company says the Bare Tube Coil should pay for itself in the first two years of use, based on an energy cost of $0.15 per kilowatt-hour.
