Freshly Squeezed Refrigeration: Williams’ new Jade Slimline counter

Williams Refrigeration has launched a new slimline version of its popular range of Jade gastronorm counters. The new model offers all the features of the established Jade counters, but slimmed down to a depth of just 500mm, making it ideal for tight spaces.

The Jade Slimline counter is available in two- and three-door versions, as a refrigerator (+1/+4°C) or freezer (-18/-22°C). The two-door has an optimum capacity of 242 litres, the three-door 354 litres.

The Jade Slimline is also the first model in its range to be fitted with Williams’ new energy-efficient compressors. The smaller compressors offer an improved heat exchange, a reduced risk of refrigerant leakage and will save you on average up to £100 pa on your energy bill, compared to standard units.

The new counters have many more energy-saving features, including CoolSmart controllers.  As well as saving energy, by only running the refrigeration system when it is required, the CoolSmart monitors the fan, defrost, compressor and probe, alerting users to potential problems and ensuring that the critical storage temperature is not compromised.

To further reduce running costs, all doors are self-closing and fitted with easy to clean, replaceable magnetic balloon gaskets. The optional two- and three-drawer versions further reduce energy consumption and the high performance 75mm insulation, which has low GWP and zero ODP, offers market-leading thermal efficiency.

The Jade Slimline is also available with hydrocarbon refrigerant – providing the ultimate ‘green’ solution.

The new counter is designed for effective operation in high ambient 43°C environments.  It features a tough stainless steel exterior, which is proven to withstand the rigours of day-to-day operation in the busiest kitchens.

The introduction of the new compressors has enabled Williams to redesign the layout of the refrigeration system. Coupled with the ability to completely remove the cassette system, this makes the Jade Slimline easy to service and maintain.

The integral handle provides a non-slip ‘grab’ on the door, a ‘must’ in a busy kitchen environment.

The Jade Slimline is delivered to site with heavy duty, non-marking braked swivel castors, which ensure both mobility and stability.
