WHY SHOULD I BUY THE EP1/2L?
Modern commercial kitchens demand top quality responsive appliances to help the speedy prepping of foods and ingredients. This technologically advanced and soundly constructed freezer prep counter from UK based Foster is ideal for preparing foods from frozen ingredients – and also for preparing fresh dish ingredients for immediate freezing.
Preparation is done from the stainless steel countertop of the freezer itself, so the kitchen staff or line chef can remain at this workstation throughout service or prepping period, cutting labour time and costs. This unit, the EcoPro G2 EP1/2L, is GN compatible so it’s easy to transfer ingredients and prepared meals or dishes from one appliance to another, for example to a bain marie or an oven.
Foster is an innovative leader in refrigeration technology and this product, which is ECA Scheme approved, is no exception. Energy efficiency means saving on energy costs – a key overhead in commercial kitchens – and a greener environment. The Airlines ventilation system cuts compressor running times by 15%, while an energy saving hydrocarbon refrigerant (R290) is available as standard at no extra cost. The high performance cyclopentane foam ensures optimum levels of insulation of 60mm throughout the freezer.
The EP1/2L is a 2 door freezer counter with a total internal volume of 280 litres. The dimensions of the appliance are 865 mm (h) x 1415 mm (w) x 700 mm (d) – the depth is 1113 mm when the doors are fully open. The net weight is 123 kilos with a gross packed weight for delivery of 139.9 kilos. 80 mm castors are fitted as standard, with height adjustable legs available as an option in 100 mm or 150 mm sizes. The freezer counter requires a 13 amp plug socket to run, and a 13 amp plug is factory fitted.
The operating temperature range is -18 °C to -21 °C and the unit will function efficiently even at ambient temperatures up to 43 °C. It’s important that adequate airflow is maintained around the freezer counter, with airspace of 150 mm; this allows the unit to function at its most efficient. The unit operates quietly with a decibel rating of 66.1 Dba at 1 metre. The control panel is like that of a smartphone – touch sensitive and hidden until lit.
The unit is robustly constructed from high grade 304 stainless steel with an aluminium interior; stainless steel interiors are available as options. 4 shelves are supplied as standard with GN 1/1 shelves and extra stainless steel shelves available. The concealed refrigeration system is located to the left, optimising capacity and providing an attractive yet practical exterior to the unit. A fully floating lock brings security and prevents the lock breaking if the key is accidentally left in.
This appliance is part of the Eco Pro G2 range which brings significant advances in technology to meet the needs of today’s professional commercial caterers, both in terms of commitment to food safety standards and in providing excellent quality appliances at competitive prices. Lower energy use and also lower carbon emissions mean cash savings on ongoing operating costs.
