ACTIF Industries launches quick-freezing counter unit for restaurants

18.04.2007
ACTIF Industries of France, a manufacturer of refrigeration equipment, has launched a quick-freezing counter unit that includes several storage combinations in a single piece of equipment. The unit, which comes in two versions, is designed for use in restaurants.
This new quick-freezing unit comes in two versions. The TCS – Gastronorm 1/1 has a 10kg capacity and a 4.5-hour cycle. The TES (with dimensions of 600mm x 400mm) has a 12kg capacity and a 4.5-hour cycle. The units are equipped with a stainless steel worktop, forced vertical ventilation and a forced condensing unit. As with the company’s SCER blast freezer, the refrigeration cycle is triggered by a controller and the unit automatically switches to storage mode at the end of the cycle – a single unit accomplishes both operations.

Both units offer positive refrigeration (+2/+10°C), storage (-18°C/-22°C), and quick-freezing (+63°C/-18°C). The counter unit, which combines a GN1/1 quick-freezing chamber and storage mode, also affords considerable space saving.

The TCS and TES counter units are built to the same high specifications as the rest of the ACTIF Industries range, and feature interiors and exteriors in 304 stainless steel, ventilated evaporators, and automatic defrosting by evaporation. They also have an electronic control with a digital display and insulation in CFC-free 60mm rigid polyurethane foam. The units’ doors have hinges and latches, as well as natural rubber removable seals and rounded interior corners for impeccable hygiene. The units are made of reliable, high-quality technical components.

About ACTIF Industries

ACTIF Industries was founded in 1987 and is headquartered in the Paris region. The company produces more than 6,000 units per year at a production facility of 5,500m². The company specialises in refrigeration equipment for the catering and baking industry. Its equipment is sold in approximately 30 countries.

Many well-known French companies and institutions use ACTIF Industries’ products, including Bistro Romain, Club Méditerranée, Courtepaille, Fauchon, Hippopotamus, Lenôtre, Relais & Châteaux, and Georges Blanc. Its international clients include Hôtel Hyundai (South Korea), Hôtel Mouawad (Lebanon), and Restaurant Léo (Belgium).

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
