Latest Randell FX Series System Revolutionizes Point-of-Use Refrigeration by Allowing Operators to Adjust Temperatures from -5°F to 40°F

CONYERS, GA (November 1, 2017) – Unified Brands, a leading manufacturer of foodservice equipment, has released the latest model in its Randell FX Series, the FX-2WS-290. This work-top model features a unique convertible system that uses R290 refrigerant to allow commercial kitchen operators to adjust temperatures from -5°F to 40°F and anywhere in between. Unified Brands demonstrated this revolutionary refrigeration solution last month at the 2017 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) show in Chicago.

“Operators sometime struggle with dependable results, which often can be attributed to varying beginning product temperatures,” says Art Delorenzo, Senior Product Line Director – Refrigeration for Unified Brands. “With the R290 refrigerant change, our FX-2WS-290 system delivers both freezer and refrigerator operation in a single unit that is SNAP compliant in a zero ozone-depleting design.”

The new convertible refrigeration system provides a variety of additional benefits:

  • Ultra-efficient operation: A patented in-drawer cooling system directs 100% of the cooling inside the removable drawer inserts, which deliver unparalleled insulation value with no air gaps. Cold air does not pour out when the drawer is opened, which helps reduce energy usage and humidity build-up.
  • Lower maintenance costs: The FX Series drawer system is the only full-extension, full-product-view system that has the drawer tracks outside the cooled compartment. This creates a more reliable, durable system than traditional drawer and door systems that can’t hold temps below 0°F without freezing up and malfunctioning.
  • Better food quality: The convertible system also enables operators to achieve more consistent beginning temps, which help kitchens ensure better results and reduce their food costs due to less waste.
  • Improved use of space: The FX-2WS-290 is ideal for operators who use speed ovens, which can be placed on top of the unit for better access during the prep process.
