ACTIF Industries launches quick-freezing counter unit for restaurants

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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
