Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
I'd like to install casters on this unit. Do I need 4 casters?

With 25”, 36”, and 50” sizes, Avantco glass frosters are built to suit whatever space you have available. The frosters are also available in either a black coated steel or a type 430 stainless steel exterior, ensuring excellent durability. All units boast 1 or 2 stainless steel doors that slide open for easy access and lock closed for security. Each froster houses multiple epoxy-coated shelves, which are easy to load from the bottom up. Simply load the bottom shelf, place the second shelf on top, and then continue the process until the unit is full. To retrieve dishes, start from the top and work your way down. Avoid placing dishes on the floor of the unit. To maintain temperatures between -5 and 2 degrees Fahrenheit, each glass froster uses eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. Using a 1/4 or 1/3 hp compressor, these units are all bottom-mounted and built with an automatic defrost system for easy operation. Plus, the front-facing digital controller allows for intuitive operation and quick temperature monitoring. Designed to withstand commercial demands and to deliver the utmost convenience, a glass froster from Avantco is an easy way to provide a truly memorable culinary experience.

Here's some basic settings you can make to your Avantco refrigerator in your restaurant. If you want to adjust the temperature, you hold set for one second and you'll see your low temperature limit. This unit is set to shut off at 33 degrees. If you want to have it shut off at a warmer temperature you can adjust it up. But it will not go below 33. You see when I get to 33 it just cycles back up to the top of the temperature range. Take this unit back down to 33 degrees. Press set to save it and you're back to your home screen.
