Eco-Friendly Refrigerant

This back bar refrigerator ensures optimal performance by operating with a 1/4 hp refrigeration system that circulates environmentally-friendly R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant to maintain temperatures from 33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. R290 refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. The foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation helps to maintain internal temperatures and adds rigidity to the body's structure.

Designed for Durability

The interior, made of strong 304 type stainless steel, is accessible through two solid doors. For overall durability, the unit's exterior is also made with stainless steel and is topped with a type 304 stainless steel surface.

Narrow Design

With a narrow design, this back bar refrigerator easily fits in spaces where other units can't. This helps you to maximize the space you have available, using it to grow your business.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, or R-513a 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) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. 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.
Can this unit be built into cabinetry?
It should not be built into cabinetry. This unit is rear and side breathing, and for proper ventilation it requires 3" of clearance behind it and on the sides.
I'd like to install casters on this unit. Do I need 8 casters?
Yes, this item requires 8 casters. For convenience, we offer a kit with all of the casters and the M8-1.25mm x 20mm bolts required to mount them. See the Items You May Also Need section.
What if my Avantco cooler doesn’t seem to be getting cold enough throughout the cabinet?
Make sure that you are loading it properly, and not overloading it. This unit is designed for cans, bottles, and similar items that naturally enable good airflow within the cabinet. Overloading the cooler with cases and boxes will interrupt the airflow and negatively impact the unit’s performance.

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.
