AICHINGER SIRIUS®ECOplus: high presentation quality with sliding glass elements
Service counter bestseller becomes self-service refrigeration unit
The AICHINGER SIRIUS®3 counter series is the bestseller in service counters. AICHINGER now also offers this classic under the name SIRIUS® ECOplus as self-service refrigeration units with sliding glass elements. The modules are therefore compliant with energy efficiency classes B to C. The new SIRIUS® ECOplus makes it possible to add self-service modules to existing SIRIUS® counter systems or to retrofit existing modules. In contrast to a comparable refrigerated cabinet without glass sliding elements, the energy requirement for refrigeration is around 55% lower. Studies have shown that, contrary to previous assumptions, sales remain stable with closed self-service refrigerated cabinets when compared to open presentation.
Fewer employees and a change in sales behavior: With the new self-service refrigerated counter, appealing and sales-boosting fresh food areas can be designed with a mix of service and self-service counters. The SIRIUS® ECOplus can be integrated into a counter system or, if the connection to the integrated refrigeration system is secured, it can also stand alone in the fresh food area. The self-service counter thus creates investment security, as it allows already installed counter systems to continue to be used.
The flow performance of the self-service counter operated with circulating air guarantees high operational reliability and temperature stability. This protects the goods on offer. The highly efficient refrigeration technology enables products with temperature requirements of up to M0 and an evaporation temperature t0 max -6 °C to be presented in a reliable, energy-efficient and HACCP-compliant manner. In defined zones, it is also possible to present products such as minced meat, which require a product temperature of M0+ (-1 to 2 °C).
