Keep it cold in the hold!

Moffat refreshes its range of drop-in modules with the launch of new refrigerated wells

Moffat has launched an innovative line of refrigerated wells, adding a new dimension of technology and energy efficiency to its range of drop-in modules for counters. Following in the footsteps of the other models in the redeveloped drop-in range, the refrigerated wells comprise all the working parts of the counter.  They can be seamlessly slotted into any shop-fitted service counters, custom-built breakfast bars or buffets.  They can be used with new counters or can be used to upgrade existing ones, replacing the ‘hardware’ but saving money and increasing sustainability by reusing the body, fascia and ‘cosmetics’.

At the heart of these chilled units is Moffat’s Polar Air Stream system, which provides a constant, recirculating cold air curtain that completely envelopes the well and its contents. It keeps the cold air in, and minimises the amount of hot air entering from the external environment.

This technology ensures that all pre-chilled food is held in safe, regulated conditions of a core temperature below 5°C in ambient conditions up to 25°C and 60% relative humidity. The unit’s refrigeration system is housed underneath the well. It runs on environmentally-friendly R290 refrigerant, which is food safe and has a zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and very low GWP (Global Warming Potential).  As well as being ultra-green, it is more efficient than conventional refrigerants, thus minimising energy consumption and making the units an even more sustainable solution.

The appliance’s built-in functions reduce human error with automatic defrosting, a digital temperature control and thermostat, and automatic water evaporation, eliminating the need for operators to empty drip trays.

The drop-in refrigerated wells are available in a wide range of dimensions, configurations and options.

Eye-catching LED lighting is deployed in models with a gantry to guarantee that the well’s contents are well illuminated, while using 85% less energy than conventional lighting. The gantry’s shielded glass panel is available in both square and curved profiles, in either open- or closed-front designs.
