Hoshizaki America has added two dual temperature refrigerator freezer combo models to its Steelheart series.
The DT1A-HS and DT2A-FS have both been added to the line after the company said chefs and consultants had been calling for dual temperature models.
The former is 27.75 inches wide, with a top refrigerated section that can be set to maintain a temperature range from 33 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, and the lower freezer section that can be set as low as -10 degrees.
It also features a ceiling mounted LED light on each section and 10.19 cubic feet of food storage.
The DT2A-FS is a lager model, measuring 55 inches across, with a refrigerator on the left section and freezer on the right.
The two sections can be filled with a combined total of 23.10 cubic feet of product and the temperature set points are the same as for the DT1A-HA.
Both also feature top mounted independent refrigeration systems for each refrigerated zone.
The models boast a number of features, including: Lockable, field reversible, stainless steel doors with full length aluminum handles; Sturdy 8-gauge stainless steel hinge door plates with welded pins including a spring assist feature that will hold doors open past 90° yet self-close at 75°; and hree adjustable epoxy coated wire shelves per section.
They also feature two exterior digital temperature displays with high and low temperature/voltage alarms and a capillary tube system that controls the flow of environmentally friendly R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant through the evaporator.
As with other models in the Steelheart line, the products are engineered to maintain NSF-7 temperatures even in 100 degree Fahrenheit kitchens.
Hoshizaki uses stainless steel inside, on the front, sides and top of the units for maximum durability, cleanability and exterior storage capability.
Speaking about the line, Jake Kimmel, the refrigeration product manager for Hoshizaki America, said: “Our success with Steelheart has resulted in chefs and consultants asking for dual temp models that are high quality, space saving solutions, even in the most demanding environments.”
