The Innovation Zone The guide to what’s new for ACR Journal readers, offering vital industry news. To advertise your product in ‘The Innovation Zone’ section please contact FERNOX ANNOUNCES DRIVE TO MORE SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING Fernox has confirmed its water treatment products will now be packed in 265ml and 500ml bottles manufactured from 30% recycled High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This is an important milestone for the company, which has long been committed to product innovation and energy efficiency of heating systems. To expand on these innovations, it is now also focusing on the environmental impact of product packaging. “Although the Fernox bottles will look and perform like our existing ones, the adoption of 30% recycled content will lower our overall use of virgin plastics,” explained Greg Banham, Sales Director from Fernox. “However, there is always more to do. Sustainability is a work in progress, and we are continuously looking to improve our efforts in supply chain, logistics and overall environmental impact.” For nearly 60 years, Fernox has led the market with non-hazardous chemical water treatments. Its in-house R&D capability has developed high-performance products which are ahead of legislative change while also considering environmentally responsible product ranges. Combined with Fernox TF1 precision engineered filters, Fernox water treatment is designed to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in both domestic and commercial heating systems. HUBBARD ADDS SUBMARINE RANGE Hubbard Systems is now supplying the Submarine blast freezer range from Friulinox. The multifunctional unit is capable of low temperature cooking functions, including sous vide, and can also be used for refrigerated storage and hot holding. The Submarine features a high-performance refrigeration system that can reduce the temperature of cooked foods from 90°C to 3°C in just 90 minutes, or freeze them to -18°C in four hours. This preserves the quality, texture, and taste of food products, ensuring that they remain fresh and safe to eat for longer periods. In addition to blast chilling and freezing, the Submarine is also capable of cooking products at temperatures up to 85°C. It can store products, chilled or frozen, and hot hold them, plus, it can safely thaw foods within a carefully controlled environment. Humidity and temperature are carefully modulated by an advanced airflow system that ensures conditions are the same throughout the interior of the cabinet. Programmed via an intuitive touchscreen control panel, the Submarine can store a range of fully customisable recipes that can be instantly recalled, and even synchronised across multiple units via Friulinox’s cloud feature. Constructed from sturdy, easy to clean stainless steel, the Submarine includes features like front accessible electronics and an evaporator positioned off the floor to make maintenance and repair simple. The Submarine is available in a range of capacities from compact models that can hold six trays up to the largest reach-in, which can handle 24 trays. For larger volumes there are roll-in units that can accept between one and four trolleys.
