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: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
